The Rhine & Moselle: Canals, Vineyards & Castles With 1 Night In Amsterdam & 2 Nights In Paris
This magnificent European river cruise vacation starts in Holland’s colorful, modern capital of Amsterdam. Begin your vacation your way with a one-night stay in this beautiful city! Join us for an off-the-beaten-path guided walking tour through its cobblestone streets before embarking on your Suite Ship®. Next day, continue to explore this 700-year-old city from a unique perspective on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten. Then, sail along the Rhine River to Cologne, Germany-a 2,000-year-old city known for its Gothic-style architecture. On a guided city walk, see the famous twin-spired cathedral and explore the cobblestone streets of the Old City. Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. In the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, enjoy a stroll through its famous cobblestone Drosselgasse lined with shops, restaurants, and lively taverns. Along the Moselle River, you’ll stop at the picturesque town of Cochem where the Riesling grape is cultivated. Visit Reichsburg Castle, nestled among vineyards and offering breathtaking views of the town and river valley below. In Bernkastel, enjoy a guided walk and taste some of the region’s best-loved wines. Join an included excursion to historical Luxembourg City, offering unique and dramatic views as it is set on two levels-high above on straddling hills and dropping into two river valleys. Board a high-speed train to Paris to celebrate this fabulous European river cruise. Guided sightseeing shows you the famous sights of the romantic “City of Light”: Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre Museum with its elegant glass pyramid contrasting its ancient architecture.
