As you edge your way further east, a tapestry of tradition begins to unravel upon the banks of Danube. Sailing commences in the 11th century Bavarian city of Nuremberg where a medley of contemporary and classic styles influence the region from the footpaths to the skyline. From medieval Regensburg, ease out into Austria and traverse the architectural elegance of an area famed for its rich musical heritage. You can explore the nearby town of Cesky Krumlov or take an excursion  to the Slovakian capital of Bratislava. Your final few days are spent exploring the crown jewels of the Danube: Vienna and Budapest. Inspiring, insightful and mesmerising in every sense, guided tours - and much more - will take you deep into the heart of these culturally rich and diverse cities.
