After two days in Paris, we head south-east through the Alps towards Geneva in Switzerland. After sightseeing in Geneva, where many UN offices are located, we continue to Italy. After spending a sunny day on the beaches in the resort of Lido di Jesolo, we will go on to Venice for sightseeing and, of course, a ride in one of the city’s famous gondolas.
Our tour continues north-east through Slovenia, where we visit the famous Postojna caves. Then we set off for the Hungarian capital of Budapest. There we will spend a day exploring the two halves of the city, Buda and Pest, on either side of the river Danube. In the evening we will watch a Hungarian folk dancing show.
Our coach will now turn north towards Vienna, Austria’s majestic capital. Vienna is one of the capitals of classical music, so we will go to a concert on the first evening. On the second evening there is an optional visit to the opera. We will also visit the impressive Schönbrunn imperial palace with more than 1,000 rooms.
We then head north past the Slovakian capital of Bratislava towards Prague, capital of the Czech Republic and one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Much of the city survived World War II intact. The castle and the old city center are extremely well preserved and of great interest. After this, we continue north towards Germany, where we stop in the old city of Dresden before returning to Copenhagen.
