Trip Summary
2 nights in Prague

Rows of steeples stacked on onion domes pierce the sky, earning Prague the name 'The City of a Thousand Spires'. Prague has stood the test of time: 1,000 years of art and architecture have collided with power politics and religious conflicts. New shops and restaurants have opened, expanding the city's culinary reach far beyond tradition. The arts and theater are thriving in the 'new' Prague. The arts of the new era possess a distinctive Czech flavor. All of this frenetic activity plays well against a stunning backdrop of towering churches and centuries-old bridges and alleyways.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock, Wenceslas Square, the Jewish Quarter and so much more!


2 nights in Vienna

City of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and wine - that's Vienna in a nutshell. Vienna doesn't hurry, and, as you saunter through its stately streets, marveling at its Baroque palaces, neither should you. Explore churches filled with statues of golden saints and pink-cheeked cherubs, wander through treasure-packed museums, or while away an afternoon in one of those countless meccas of mocha (the inevitable cafés), you will feel lapped in lashings of rich, delicious, whipped cream - the beloved Schlagobers that garnishes most Viennese pastries.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
The Hofburg Palace, Schonbrunn Palace, Staatsoper, Kumsthistorisches Museum, the MuseumsQuartier Complex, St. Stephan's Cathedral, the Belvedere Palace, The Ringstrasse, Parlament, The Prater and so much more!


2 nights in Budapest

Budapest looks its most beautiful at dawn, yet it is also spectacularly appealing at night. Even more exceptional is the perfect contrast between the right and left banks. Buda is built upon hills, the feet of two of them - Castle Hill and Gellért Hill - almost stand in the water. Facing it is Pest, as flat as a pancake. This is a vibrant city: it throbs with life morning, noon and night; visitors arriving from other countries get the feeling that something interesting is happening round every corner. Budapest is a remarkable and wholly unpretentious place.


Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
Buda Hill and the Castle District, Parliament, the Chain Bridge, Heroes' Square, St. Stephen's Basilica, the Opera House, Matthias Church, Fisherman's Bastion, Gellert Hill, the thermal baths and so much more!


2 nights in Zagreb

Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative center of Croatia. Surnamed the "city of museums" as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world, Zagreb is also a vibrant destination with a variety of modern shops, quality restaurants and sports/recreational facilities. The historical part of the city to the north of Ban Jelaèiæ Square is comprised of the Upper Town and Kaptol, a medieval urban complex of churches, palaces, museums, galleries and government buildings that are exceptionally popular with tourists on sightseeing tours.


2 nights in Ljubljana

Situated at the intersection of the cultures of the east and the west, the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana maintains the hospitality of a small town and also possesses the characteristics of a metropolis. It is a city of culture, home to many theatres, museums and galleries and it also boasts one of the oldest philharmonic academy in the world. More than 10,000 cultural events take place here: top quality musical, theatre and fine arts performers as well as alternative and avant-garde performers. Don't miss the National Gallery and the Museum of Modern Art.


2 nights in Venice

With sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways, Venice is straight out of an 18th-century Canaletto masterpiece. No matter how many times you have seen it in movies or TV commercials, the real thing is more surreal and dreamlike than you ever imagined. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale are exotic mélanges of Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. It is full of secrets, ineffably romantic, and - at times - given over entirely to pleasure. You must walk everywhere in Venice and where you cannot walk, you go by water.


Recommended Stay: 2 nights
Must See`s:
Basilica of San Marco, St. Mark`s Square, The Doge`s Palace, Accademia gallery, Peggy Guggenheim Collection , The Rialto Bridge, Murano, Burano and Torcello Islands and so much more!


2 nights in Lucerne

Located at the north end of the Lake Lucerne within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi, Lucerne is a beautiful small city in the heartland of Switzerland. It abounds in narrow cobblestone streets, covered bridges, frescoed houses, and fountains. The city became a center of Swiss history and legend, and is the setting for the most memorable part of the legend of William Tell who shot an apple off of his son's head. Lucerne is also a great base from which to explore other famous Swiss sites.


2 nights in Munich

Big-city style and rural charm, Alpine character and Mediterranean verve, art treasures and the Oktoberfest, traditional customs and high technology, beer gardens and haute cuisine, operas and in bars; these are all ingredients that makes Bavaria's state capital so endlessly fascinating, and so popular with visitors from all over the world. Sprawling Munich is one of Germany's major cultural centers, second only to Berlin in terms of museums and theaters. It's also one of Germany's most festive cities, and its location, at the foot of the Alps, is idyllic. Munich's self-imposed image is that of a fun-loving and festival-addicted city - typified by its Oktoberfest.

Package Map Picture
Austria

Austria is more epitomized by green glacial valleys and snow-capped peaks - and the wooden picture postcard chalets. Nonetheless, visitors have much to explore from the stylish capital, Vienna, to the baroque splendor of Salzburg. Austria's mountain landscape is undoubtedly its biggest draw for tourists. Although a year-round destination, there is a definite seasonal split in visitors. Summer is best for exploring the countryside on the many mountain trails that snake through the Austrian Alps and the lowlands, while the ski season kicks off in December, attracting winter sports fans from all over the world.

Croatia

"The country of a thousand islands," Croatia is situated on the Adriatic coast. It has a rich cultural and historical heritage, with many different influences - Greek, Roman, Celtic, Illyrian, Austrian, Hungarian, Byzantine and Islamic. The Croatian coast is among the most beautiful in the world having unique cities like Dubrovnik which was the rival of Venice for centuries, Split with its Diocletian palace, great beaches and more than 1001 islands to choose from. Besides its natural beauty, Croatia also offers: a great history, many museums and a unique mixture of cuisines.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is where East meets West. Since the borders were completely opened up in 1989, tourists have flocked to sample the unspoiled charms of this fascinating and varied country. Full of architectural and artistic treasures Prague is undoubtedly the Czech Republic's brightest jewel, although Czech Republic is a lot more than its capital. Outside the city is an unspoiled expanse of mountains, spotted with small towns and villages. The idyllic rural way of life of centuries ago is preserved in many places, while towns such as Karlovy Vary have been revitalized as tourist centers.

Germany

Germany's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

Hungary

Hungary is an astonishing country brimmed with culture and natural beauty. The treasures of their culture have drawn travelers from distant lands throughout the centuries. After Iceland, Hungary has the world's largest reserve of surface thermal water. Thousands who seek rest and rejuvenation turn to the country's innumerable thermal spas, famous for their natural healing spring water. In the countryside you'll find majestic plains, resort-lined lakes, baroque towns, horse markets and rustic villages. Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake, is a favorite get-away for families with young children, fans of yachting, and lovers of the beach.

Italy

For centuries, Italy has drawn foreign visitors, mostly for its architectural, artistic and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. For some the Italian experience is full of passion and excitement, urbanity, crowds and noise. For others it is a quiet rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Its great cities are replete with fantastic works of art ranging from the Roman times to the Renaissance. Even then, many visitors will forego the rich attractions of culture in favor of some of the most unspoilt beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.

Slovenia

Slovenia is a coastal Alpine country, unique in its diversity: mountains, sea, karst, lowland are sitting closely together here. It has both natural beauty and historical sights, making it the perfect alternative to any other alpine country. The main attractions are: Triglav National Park, with Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj; Karst with many great caves, like Postojna caves, Skocjanske jame and spectacular places like Predjamski grad; Slovenia's capital Ljubljana, a city with a unique identity; Slovenian coast with typical north Adriatic towns like Piran or Izola, Portoroz, Koper.

Switzerland

Switzerland is a pristine country of lakes, mountains and forests. The best known of the continent's mountain ranges, the Alpine chain, runs through most of Switzerland and provides the majority of the country's magnificent natural sights. In the summer, towns such as Interlaken become green mountain centers for walking and mountaineering, and there are few places more naturally beautiful in the whole of Europe. Zurich, Geneva, Bern and Lucerne are models of Swiss efficiency, offering a wealth of perfectly serene history. Less busy are the lakeside resorts, including fashionable Montreux on Lake Geneva.
