Europe's Rivers & Castles River Cruise

13 Days - Travel to Paris & return from Prague or reverse - 3 nights in Paris, an enchanting 7-night cruise from Luxembourg to Nuremberg, plus 2 nights in Prague.

Start your European vacation in Paris before taking a high-speed TGV train to Luxembourg, where you will board your ship and begin a majestic 7-night European river cruise. Visit Trier, the oldest city in Germany, and continue through the meandering Mosel River Valley, its steep hillsides covered with vineyards. Visit the German villages of Bernkastel and Cochem and experience the dramatic scenery of the Rhine River Gorge, dotted with picturesque fortresses and castle ruins. Along the Main River, stop at medieval towns seemingly untouched by time before cruising through the Main-Danube Canal to historic Nuremberg. Conclude with two nights in beautiful Prague.
