ITINERARY

Vienna (Wien), Austria
Once the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and forever known for its manicured gardens, ornate architecture - especially that of the famed Ringstrasse - and distinguished roster of composers who either were born or lived here, Vienna finds itself at the very center of European culture, even as it sits near the border of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

Esztergom, Hungary
Once the capital of Hungary, Esztergom still displays a regal appearance, situated beautifully on the Danube and capped by the Esztergom Basilica, the largest church in Hungary. Adding to its former-capital credentials is Esztergom's stretch-way-back history: It is one of the oldest towns in Hungary. The Middle Ages version of the city lies underneath the present Esztergom; excavations have revealed evidence that this spot of Hungarian earth has been inhabited since the end of the Ice Age'in other words, 20,000 years ago. Fast forward to today and you'll discover a town that stays in touch with its past, with most roads leading to the grand Basilica. Turn your head away from the church's imposing edifice to glimpse the city's other attractions, including fountain-adored squares, fine gardens and, of course, the waters and bridges of the Danube.

Visegrad, Hungary

Budapest, Hungary
Budapest, Hungary. Spanning the banks of the Danube, Budapest is Eastern Europe’s liveliest and most cosmopolitan metropolis. Seven bridges, including the famous Chain and Elisabeth Bridges, connect ancient Buda on the right bank with Pest on the left. The massive hilltop castle complex with FISHERMEN’S BASTION and the Matthias Church is among the many sights your Local Guide will show you. (B,L,D)

Mohács, Hungary
'Founded in 1010 as a bishopric by King Stephen I (also known as St. Stephen), Kalocsa has long been a center for religion and, by extension, art and architecture. Kalocsa suffered its share of occupation and destruction over the centuries, yet remained resilient with feats of achievement and nods of recognition. The city gained the status of archbishopric, became regarded as an academic fount and then, in the 20th century, became renowned for 'red gold''paprika. The Paprika Museum delves into the history of the spice and the generous serving of distinction it has offered Hungary. The archiepiscopal palace and magnificent cathedral, meanwhile, reflect Kalocsa's religious roots. Completed in 1754, the cathedral is the jewel of the city, an Italian baroque masterpiece with an ornate interior hosting a 3,560-pipe organ, a favorite instrument of Hungarian composer and virtuoso pianist, Franz Liszt. '
