TRAVEL THROUGH TIME ALONG THREE GREAT RIVERS, UNCOVERING THE TRUE JEWELS OF EUROPEAN HISTORY, CULTURE, AND ART. Embark on a history-steeped, perfectly paced European journey that takes you through four countries along three great rivers—the Danube, Main, and Rhine—and to countless UNESCO World Heritage sites.
When you step into Melk Abbey’s great library overlooking the Danube, you are entering a center of learning that influenced all of Europe. Walk through the medieval lanes of Bamberg and see a layout that established a model for urban development across the Continent. Stand beneath the Wu¨rzburg Residenz’s soaring ceiling fresco and understand that, even centuries ago, art knew no boundaries, as artists like Tiepolo traveled from Italy to work throughout the Habsburg Empire. Appreciate the more-modern ingenuity of the Main-Danube Canal, as your ship navigates a series of intricate locks.
Throughout your journey, you’ll sample regional delicacies and sip the fine Rieslings that hail from the Rhine River Valley. From Budapest to Vienna, you’ll marvel at the jewels of Europe.
