Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Vienna (Austria): Board at 6.00pm

Overnight stopover.

Day 2: Vienna – Budapest (Hungary): Overnight

Buffet breakfast on board. Morning devoted to the optional guided tour of Vienna. The imperial residence for more than six centuries, Vienna has been deeply marked by the seal of the Habsburgs. If, for many people, the Austrian capital evokes the rhythm of the waltz or the silhouette of the big wheel at the Prater, it owes the attraction of its monuments, to the memories of the Hapsburgs, to the riches of its museums, to its musical tradition continued by the Opera and by illustrious ensembles. Return to boat for lunch. Departure of the cruise for Budapest. Afternoon sailing on the Danube, a river rich in history and immense heritage Dinner on board followed by an evening’s dancing. Arrival in Budapest.

Day 3: Budapest (Hungary):

After breakfast, morning devoted to the optional guided tour of Budapest. Explore this astonishing city, cut in half by the Danube: Buda with its hills and valleys and Pest with its flat plain, whose panoramic view over the banks of the Danube is listed as part of the world’s cultural heritage by UNESCO. Back to the boat for lunch. Free afternoon. Explore the unquestioned marvels of the city at your own pace. Dinner on a “Hungarian theme” followed by an evening of entertainment.
