The colourful towns of Emmersdorf and Melk provide a warm welcome to Austria, where scenic cruising of the Wachau Valley – through postcard-perfect scenes of rolling hills and famous vineyards – will be an experience to cherish. You’ve also a chance to visit Vienna, to engage with the Austrian capital’s architectural beauty, fascinating history and famous musical heritage. In Slovakia, another enchanting capital awaits; there are attractions aplenty to discover in Bratislava, from its medieval ruins and Gothic-style cathedral to the majestic hilltop castle. Then finally, it’s on to Hungary where, after visiting Esztergom, you’ll get to delight in the beauty of Budapest by night before heading home.
