For the ultimate three week holiday, why not combine a European river cruise with a city stay in Paris and Prague
. Begin your holiday with a three night stay in Paris, ‘the city of light’, and spend time discovering famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, measuring 324 metres tall, the Louvre home to the famous Mona Lisa painting and the Arc de Triomphe, commissioned by Napoleon in 1806. For those that love to shop, take a leisurely stroll along the Champs-Élysées and browse the French designer labels before stopping at a casual café for fresh coffee and croissants. Admire the city’s glittering lights on an evening cruise along the Seine River, savour the ever-so-moreish cheese and wine in a cosy French wine bar or take in a burlesque show at The Lido.
Finishing your 14 night European river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest, travel to Prague, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires”, uncover its historic heart by heading to the Old Town Square. Join the crowds on the hour, every hour as the Astronomical Clock, dating back to the late 1400s puts on a performance. Visit Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records and stroll along the famous 14th century Charles Bridge at sunrise or sunset for striking views over the picturesque town and Vltava river. Of course, your holiday wouldn’t be complete without sampling the Czech beer (pivo), claimed to be the best beer in the world.
