    Waltz through a beautiful part of Europe

    Elegant Vienna provides a great point of contrast with the rest of this exceptional itinerary.

    Be enchanted with the visit to the Danube Delta, teeming with over 300 species of birdlife, and offering some of the region’s most beautiful backdrops before spilling into the famous Black Sea. From here on, the towns take on a subtly Eastern character. Cruise through the magnificent Iron Gates, visit historic city of Belgrade, and beautiful Croatia. Travel to Budapest – every bit as elegant as Vienna, and even more exotic. Finish your journey in Vienna, a city inspired by the great composers, and you’re likely to pick up the strains of a melody you recognise even while walking its quaint cobblestone streets.
