Your Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Prague

Fly to Prague, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to the hotel. Dependent on your arrival time, spend the rest of the day settling into this pretty, 'walkabout' city.

Day Two: Explore Prague

Considered one of Europe's most beautiful capitals, Prague has miraculously survived the turbulent centuries unscathed, leaving so many impressive, historic sights to be explored. Join our guide for a walking tour, which introduces the elegant Old Town - the city's heart since the 13th Century - and then crosses the River Vlatva via iconic Charles Bridge. Explore the steeply sloping left bank and the Hradcany District, dominated by Prague's ancient castle, great St Vitus' Cathedral and the historic Royal Palace.

Following the tour you're free to spend the rest of the day at your leisure, perhaps in one of the city's 20 museums or over 100 fascinating galleries. And this evening, why not join our optional dinner cruise and enjoy a buffet meal as the city slips past?

Day Three: Visit Dresden on an optional excursion

Continue exploring Prague at your leisure today, or join us on an excursion to Dresden. Having suffered severe destruction by Allied bombings in 1945, Dresden has undergone a miraculous transformation to restore its former Baroque glory. See stupendous Frauenkirche, a historic treasure that lay in ruins after the war, the surrounding altstadt, the Residenzschloss - seat of Saxon kings and home to a priceless jewel collection - and the pavilions and courtyards of the Zwinger buildings. Cross to the northern bank of the River Elbe to explore Neustadt, home to several fascinating museums and a fantastic view of the altstadt from its riverside meadows.

Day Four: Travel through Bohemia and explore Vienna

Leaving Prague behind, we'll board the coach and travel south into beautiful Bohemia, a rolling, romantic region of thick forests, medieval towns and majestic, hill-top castles. By early afternoon we'll have crossed in Austria to arrive in the great Imperial city of Vienna.

A guided introductory tour reveals the city's opulent Baroque palaces, striking St Stephen's Cathedral, the elegant shopping arcades and famous Ringstrasse (ring-road) of grand buildings overlooking great squares. See the buzzing Old Town and the world-famous Hofburg Palace - residence of the Austrian President as well as the famous Spanish Riding School and the Vienna Boys' Choir.

Day Five: Visit Schonbrunn Palace

This morning's optional excursion brings the chance to visit great Schonbrunn Palace, a former Imperial summer residence and one of Austria's most magnificent treasures. Explore the great apartments and opulent saloons that once echoed with the music of the young Mozart.

Spend the rest of your day imbibing the highlights of Vienna. The city is famously the home of the Kaffeehaus, so make sure to include a rest stop at one of its many celebrated meeting places for coffee and cake.

Day Six: Visit Bratislava and continue to Budapest

Today we'll continue our journey south towards Hungary. En route, we'll pass through Slovakia to call at its charming capital, Bratislava. Perching on the banks of the River Danube, Bratislava boasts Baroque palaces, pretty churches and an old town flaunting understated elegance. After some time to explore, re-board the coach to continue the journey to the Danube-side city of Budapest, for a two-night stay.

Day Seven: Discover Budapest and enjoy a Danube river cruise

Discover a string of highlights today as we explore the great twin city, comprised of elegant Buda in the west and trendy Pest in the east. Explore Buda's castle district, packed with medieval houses and the fascinating Matthias Church, and take a look at the spectacular vista from Fishermen's Bastion. Cross famous Chain Bridge to Pest to see the stunning Gothic Parliament building lining the river and grandiose Heroes Square.

Later this afternoon you'll enjoy an included Danube river cruise, while this evening brings the chance to join our optional folklore evening of traditional Hungarian music and food - a perfect end to a thrilling holiday.

Day Eight: Fly back to the UK

Transfer to the airport for your flight home after a fascinating tour through central Europe.
