2020 Vienna > Bucharest

Waltz through a beautiful part of Europe

Elegant Vienna provides a great point of contrast to the rest of this exceptional itinerary.
Vienna is 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. From here, the towns take on a subtle Eastern character. Travel to Bratislava and Budapest – every bit as elegant as Vienna – and beyond that, among other highlights, beautiful Croatia and the magnificent Iron Gates. Your voyage will wrap up with a visit to the Danube Delta, offering some of the region’s most beautiful backdrops before the Danube spills into the Black Sea.
