Great Journey through Europe

Great Journey through Europe

This extraordinary 11-day “Grand Tour” of Europe features an incredible combination of river, rail, lake and mountain travel including five nights aboard the new, deluxe Amadeus Imperial. Journey through the western center of the Continent through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands, cruising the most scenic sections of the fabled Rhine River. This program features five UNESCO World Heritage sites—the Jungfrau-Aletsch region of the Swiss Alps, Bern’s Old Town, the Alsatian city of Strasbourg, the Middle Rhine Valley and Cologne’s Gothic cathedral. Visit medieval Rüdesheim in the heart of Germany’s wine country and the historical treasures of romantic Heidelberg. Spend two nights each in Zermatt and Lucerne, Switzerland. Ride aboard three legendary railways—the Gornergrat Bahn for breathtaking views of the Matterhorn, the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Andermatt and the Pilatus Railway, the world’s steepest cogwheel railway—and enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Lucerne. This is the trip of a lifetime at an exceptional value. Three-night Amsterdam Post-Program Option featuring the Floriade World Horticulture Expo, held once every 10 years.
