Jewels of Europe
July 15-30, 2018
Begin your journey in Amsterdam, the Dutch city that claims a personality of its own: eager, yet laid-back; forward-thinking, yet with the distinction of a classic European capital.
Explore the Neanderthal Museum or the pristine Marksburg Castle in Cologne, breathe in the fresh air of the spectacular Rhine Gorge, and celebrate Germany’s iconic Oktoberfest in Freudenberg. In Würzburg, marvel in the medieval walled city of Rothenburg, and savor the traditional smoked Rauchbier of Bamberg. Immerse yourself in WWII history in Nuremberg, tour one of the oldest breweries on Earth in Regensburg, and bring The Sound of Music to life in Salzburg.
Experience Melk’s magnificent 18th century Benedictine abbey before making your way to Vienna for an overnight stay. Let your ears be your guide in this home city of composers such as Haydn to Beethoven, sit in while the famous Lipizzaner Stallions practice their moves, or simply revel in the sheer opulence of the Habsburg Empire.
Your last stop is Budapest, where you will disembark the Scenic Ruby and explore this magnificent historical and cultural center of Hungary.
