Thinking about European river cruising? In this episode of the Tour the World travel TV series, we join Evergreen Tours on a deluxe river cruise down one of Europe’s most picturesque waterways — the Danube River. Visit stunning Melk Abbey, fabulous Vienna and another of Europe’s finest old-world cities – Budapest.
Drifting down the wonderful waterways of Europe is an amazing way to travel.
If you’re planning to take a Europe river cruise, this episode of Tour the World with Evergreen Tours – hosted by The Big Bus tour and travel guide’s editor Adam Ford – is packed with European river cruising travel ideas and inspiration – including culture, food, history, shopping and relaxation must-sees and dos.
In this episode you’ll learn more about life on board a Europe river cruise and some of the amazing destinations you are likely to visit, including the fabulous Austrian capital Vienna, historic Melk Abbey, the quaint town of Durstein in the Wachau Valley, and the bustling Slovakian capital of Bratislava.
A river cruise is without doubt the most relaxing ways to see the best of Europe. This is the old-world Europe that most of us yearn to experience, with hilltop castles and beautifully preserved medieval towns. Unlike a coach tour, you only have to unpack once to see it all!
One of the main highlights of any Europe river cruise on the Danube will be a visit to Vienna. This cultured city has so much to offer visitors, so spend your time here wisely. There are many museums and galleries to choose from, along with traditional coffee houses to try. A Mozart recital is an absolute must!
A visit to the regal Hungarian city of Budapest is another highlight that demands careful planning. As the gateway between Western and Eastern Europe for many centuries, Budapest is one of the continent’s most intriguing destinations – and again, there’s a lot to see!
