Trip Summary

  • 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 and 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.

    Explore Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock, Wenceslas Square, the Jewish Quarter and so much more!

  • 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.

    Explore The Hofburg Palace, Schonbrunn Palace, Staatsoper, Kunsthistorisches Museum, the MuseumsQuartier Complex, St. Stephan's Cathedral, the Belvedere Palace, The Ringstrasse, Parliament, The Prater and so much more!

  • Budapest

    Two cities in one! Buda on a hill, the historical part of the city and Pest on a plain, its shops and boulevards both separated by the Danube flowing between them and connected by magnificent bridges. Budapest looks its most beautiful at dawn, yet it is also spectacularly appealing at night. With a unique, youthful atmosphere, a world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating nightlife and an exceptionally rich offering of natural thermal baths, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. This is a vibrant city - a remarkable and wholly unpretentious place.

    Visit and explore 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!

  • Zagreb

    Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative center of Croatia. It is known as the City of Museums, as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world. Zagreb is a vibrant, modern destination with a variety of shops, quality restaurants and sports and recreation facilities. The historical part of the city to the north is comprised of the Upper Town and Kaptol, a medieval urban complex of churches, palaces, museums, galleries and government buildings. Of particular note is the breathtaking Gothic-style Zagreb Cathedral, from which the entire city was born. Explore the Kaptol, Upper Town, Lower Town, Zagreb Cathedral, St. Mark's Church, Art Pavilion, Mestrovic Pavilion, Mimara Museum, Lotrscak Tower, Kamenita vrata, Ilica, King Tomislav Square, Lenuci's Horseshoe, Ban Josip Jelacic Square, and so much more.

  • Ljubljana

    Ljubljana, long overlooked by American travelers in favor of adjacent European capitals like Vienna and Budapest, is now a city on the rise. Visitors only need a few moments to walk the pedestrian-only streets in the city center to feel the old-world historic charm, coupled with the youthful energy exuding from the local university population. Beautiful and vibrant, travelers will quickly learn that Ljubljana has a lot to offer to all who visit. You can sip a cup of coffee and enjoy live music in the Metelkova mesto commune, sail lazily along the winding Ljubljanica River, browse art galleries and take in a ballet, all within walking distance from each other. Visit and explore the Ljubljana Castle, Ljubljanica River, Metelkova mesto, Cathedral of St. Nicholas, Triple Bridge, Butchers` Bridge, Cobblers` Bridge, Congress Square, Preseren Square, Slovenska cesta, Mount Saint Mary, Tivoli Park, and so much more.

  • 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 melanges 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.

    Explore Piazza San Marco, stroll across the Rialto Bridge, get lost in the endless canals, admire the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, visit the San Giorgio dei Greci, walk around the Jewish Ghetto, learn about Venice's musical history, tour Venice's unique architecture at Campo Santa Maria Formosa, celebrate one of Venice's many festivals, go window shopping, and so much more!

  • 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.

    Explore the Old Town, walk the medieval wooden covered bridges, hike Mt Rigi or Mt Pilatus, walk the Fortress walls, cruise on the lake by boat, visit the Lion Monument, visit Jesuit Church, the many Museums, check out the Glacier Garden, take some pictures at the Bourbaki Panorama, and so much more!

  • 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 cool 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. Explore Marienplatz and the New Town Hall of Munich, Frauenkirche - Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady, Dachau Concentration Camp, The English Garden, Beer Halls, Viktualienmarkt, Residence Palace of Munich, Deutsches Museum, Museums Ensemble: Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Olympic Stadium of Munich, BMW Museum and much more.
