Sweep across the length and breadth of central Europe with our Jewels of Europe itinerary, and discover the wonders of the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. Once crucial trade routes, the great rivers of Europe have become beloved passageways, capable of transporting discerning travellers from the Black Sea to the North Sea in one uninterrupted journey.

Over 15-days, you’ll travel from Budapest to Amsterdam via the Wachau Valley, the Main-Danube-Canal, the Rhine Gorge and the Rhine Delta, unearthing elegant cities like Vienna, Passau and Cologne, and smaller destinations like Melk, Regensburg and Marksburg. No matter their scale, these destinations offer up their own distinct highlights — from Budapest with its thermal baths and Hospital in the Rock, to Würzburg and the illustrious Residenz Palace.
