Day 1 – 2
Your week-long adventure kicks off in Vienna, where you will relive the days of the Hapsburg Monarchy by visiting various imperial spots such as the Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg Imperial Residence. Along the way, marvel at the city’s architectural masterpieces. On the second day, you will set off for Budapest.
Tip! Travel in comfort from city to city in Insight Vacations’ 40-seater coaches with business class legroom.
From the Fisherman's Bastion at the heart of Buda's Castle District to authentic Austrian strüdels, Budapest has plenty to offer. If you are here during the yuletide season, spend your free afternoon savouring some mulled wine or hot cider as you browse through the snow-blanketed stalls at the Christmas market.
During a pit stop in Bratislava, Slovakia on the way to Prague, Czech Republic, there will be ample time to roam about and take in the sights of the capital city, such as the four-towered Bratislava Castle and the Danube River. Continue through the wine-producing area of South Moravia to reach the forested countryside of Bohemia, which is dotted with peaceful lakes.
In Prague, you are transported into a realm of fantasy as you walk on cobbled streets and past medieval palaces. With a local expert, witness the 1,000 year-old Prague Castle, adorned by the soaring spires of St. Vitus' Cathedral, and the majestic Prague Orloj — the oldest operating astronomical clock in the world.
Day 6 – 7
On the second to last day, the tour will take you back to Vienna, where you will conclude your last evening with a Celebration Dinner. As you tuck into a traditional Austrian fare, highly-acclaimed musicians and dancers put on a spectacular concert of Viennese classical music.
Tip! Don’t have a week? Sign up for the 5-day Gems of Britain tour (from $1,175) and experience life in the thriving metropolis that is London and Edinburgh. On the contrary, for an extended getaway, escape to Germany with the 9-day Alpine Christmas Markets tour (from $1925) — Munich in winter looks like a fairytale land from your childhood storybooks.
