This Central European river cruise will take you from the gothic skyline of Prague to the romantic lights of Paris on the Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers.

It begins with two overnights in Prague, one of Europe's most magical cities. You'll see Prague's best-known treasures like St. Vitus Cathedral, a gothic masterpiece that dominates the skyline, and get a taste of the local cuisine with plum dumplings and Pilsner.

Your river cruise will get underway as you sail through the Main Danube Canal with stops in some of Germany's most intriguing cities. Also sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, considered the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River. See ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the heart of the Moselle region, the wine village of Bernkastel, surrounded by Germany's largest expanse of vineyards, will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses which have been standing since the Middle Ages. Before you leave, we'll introduce you to some of the famed wines of the area. Along the enchanting Moselle River, make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge, with stone pilings dating from 144-152 AD.

Travel by high-speed train to Paris where guided sightseeing shows you the must-see sights: Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum with its glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture, and of course the splendid Eiffel Tower. And you will have plenty of free time to relax in a lavish café and explore the “City of Light" on your own.
