    Ancient and modern treasures

    Paris is an architectural wonderland without equal, and Berlin, the site of so many momentous world events, is the perfect counterpoint.

You can look forward to taking a closer look at European history, in its full sweeping splendour, from the French Revolution to the Cold War, as well as many of the continent’s finest cultural high points – Amsterdam, Vienna and the timeless charms of Prague, and for most of the journey you’ll be experiencing it in all-inclusive 5-star luxury on a Scenic Space-Ship.
