Start and end your cruise in the magical city of Vienna, the main residence of the Habsburg Dynasty for more than six centuries. For many travelers, the Austrian capital brings dreams of waltzing or riding the Giant Ferris Wheel immortalized in “The Third Man”. But Vienna is a kaleidoscope of wonders: monuments, museums, castles, operas, music and more. Also on your adventure enjoy a guided tour of historical Budapest and explore this astonishing city, cut in half by the Danube: Buda with its hills and valleys and Pest with its flat plain.
