  • Style: At Leisure
  • Description: This relaxing look at three historic riverside cities gives you time to get an authentic inside view of their culture and traditions – an alternative to more obvious European capitals. It's Insider moments like… settling in to each new city with the help of one of our local friends. They weave their personal stories and favourite sights into the famous icons you see, like Prague Castle, Budapest's Fisherman's Bastion and Vienna's Hofburg Palace. There are quirky stories to enjoy while admiring the old masters at Vienna's Museum of Fine Arts – we go before the general public is allowed in. It's also about insider tastes, like being treated to traditional Hungarian Cuisine.
