Overview of Itinerary
From Budapest, you slip our moorings and head on your journey north to Esztergom spending the morning exploring its historic centre, which once was Hungary’s capital, before continuing westwards to the beautiful old town of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Navigating through Lower Austria you then reach the romantic town of Dürnstein, where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned, having been shipwrecked on his return from the crusades. After you visit the remarkable monastery in Melk, with its 200m long Emperor’s Gallery, lined with portraits of Austrian emperors.
Soon you arrive in Linz where you take the short drive to Salzburg. During the guided tour of the old town you will see the imposing fortress Hohensalzburg towering over the city and of course the birthplace and residence of Mozart, Salzburg’s most famous citizen. On your way back eastwards you will reach classical Vienna, home of Strauss and many great composers. This city offers up so much wonderful architecture as well as a host of other things to see including the Spanish riding school.
Finally, cruising into Hungary, you arrive back in imperial Budapest, straddling the picturesque Danube. After a guided tour of this palatial city you spend the evening on board, where the Captain hosts another spectacular dinner, an excellent finale to this most exceptional and relaxing cruise.
This is a wonderful way to relax, explore famous sites, experience different cultures and enjoy succulent fine dining- all with like minded people.
