“The Golden City,” “The City of 100 Spires,” “The Mother of Cities,” Prague has no shortage of nicknames paying homage to its charm and beauty.

From exploring the history and modern culture on foot, to traveling farther afield to take in the picturesque countryside and fairytale villages, you’ll have an itinerary full of adventure and relaxation. Besides the city’s history, which is evident on every street, including the beautifully preserved former Jewish Quarter, you can delve into the city’s gastronomy.

Day-trip destinations include scenic castles, the perfect spa town, and Kutna Hora with its “bone church” and gothic cathedral. Prague is a city of history that comes to life for every visitor, no matter their interests.

Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. Stephansplatz, Vienna's main square, is dominated by the impressive eponymous gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg Palace. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable vacation.

You’ll take in the freedom of easy cycling in magnificent vineyard surroundings, sample wine at small, local wineries and explore many stunning villages up close.

3 Nights in Budapest

The Paris of Central Europe, Budapest is the Queen of the Danube, a sprawling, regal city split in two halves by the mighty river. The city’s two UNESCO-listed halves, ancient Buda and modern Pest both have their charms and are linked by numerous picturesque bridges. From the Buda Castle to the Danube Embankment and the sprawling Andrassy Avenue, with its impressive architecture, there is plenty to keep you busy here, exploring and discovering this atmospheric city. It’s a little too big to explore only on foot, but the Pest side of the city is well laid out with broad avenues of the Parisian system, so it’s hard to get lost, and the public transportation, including the world's second oldest subway system, works well. Budapest has all the charm of Western Europe at a fraction of the price. Here you can taste excellent wines produced throughout the region, and even enjoy Michelin-star dining. We can offer you more than enough exciting activities in the city, from a visit to the incredible Parliament building to a boat cruise with dinner, or an exploration of Budapest’s communist past. The city also has a rich Jewish heritage, so you’ll find the perfect balance of history and modern culture here. Voted Best City in Europe in 2013 by Condé Nast Traveler readers and a regular in their top 3, Budapest really is a special city with activities to cater to every interest.

Day 8

Day 8 - Your First Full Day in Budapest

See Budapest with an Expert Guide, Get Educated and Oriented

Included in your vacation package price.

Your private guide will meet you at your accommodation, then take you on a three-hour walking (and metro) tour to show you the highlights of both the Buda and Pest sides of the city. You'll start by hopping on the metro to the Opera House, Heroes' Square and City Park at the far end of Andrassy Blvd. Then you'll return to the center, where St. Stephen’s Basilica awaits. From there you'll get a closer look at the Buda side of the city, where your guide will point out Gellert Hill, the Citadel and the Royal Palace before leading you up through the old cobblestone streets to Fisherman’s Bastion and St. Matthias Church, where your tour will conclude.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 3 hours

Mix with the Locals

Suggestion to explore on your own

Is there anything more quintessentially Budapest than a visit to one of the legendary baths? With more hot springs than any other capital, the city lets you take your pick of various styles, from the old school Turkish Rudas Baths to the Art Nouveau Gellert Baths on the Buda side of the city, or even the Neo-Baroque Szechenyi Baths with a large outdoor pool in Pest’s City Park.

Day 9

Day 9 - Your Second Full Day in Budapest

Sample Hungarian Food and Wine with an Expert, or on Your Own

Included in your vacation package price.

You'll start your tour in Budapest’s Great Market Hall. Over the next four hours of walking and tasting you will receive a thorough introduction to the cuisine (and wine) of Hungary. Led by food and wine professionals, this tour includes generous tastings along the way. You'll taste the fascinating history of the Central Market Hall (and get inside knowledge on what to taste and where to shop there). Then you'll tour the best small shops and cafes in the neighborhood. You will follow in the footsteps of Anthony Bourdain, with lunch in the same butcher's shop, before finishing the tour with a Hungarian wine tasting.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 4 hours

Go inside Budapest’s Signature Sights or Explore a Green Oasis in the City

Suggestion to explore on your own

Although a walking tour of the city will show you its highlights, there’s just not enough time to go inside all the buildings. Our favorites to explore are the Great Market Hall, the Parliament and the Opera House. The latter two can be visited on guided tours, available most days. If you’ve already taken in all of central Budapest’s sights, why not spend some time on the Danube, either on land or by boat. Margaret Island is often overlooked by travellers but is right in the middle of the city, just off Margaret Bridge. Consisting mostly of landscaped parks, it features the occasional medieval ruin too. There were several monasteries and convents here. The island is popular with locals as a place for recreation, with swimming pools, jogging paths, four-person bikes to rent and a fun singing fountain to watch from the many seats around it.
