New for 2017, experience the romance of rail on this exclusive voyage, between the beautiful cities of Budapest and Athens, and through the sumptuous scenery of Central and Southern Europe, absorbing the classical culture and architectural masterpieces of some of Europe's most magnificent cities and medieval towns that are steeped in history.
Meandering through verdant landscapes and along turquoise coastlines, this exclusive rail cruise delivers an enthralling exploration of the Balkan nations and neighbouring Greece. Encompassing six countries over 11 enchanting days, our rail adventure samples a taste of the eclectic cultures and customs found across Central and Southern Europe. Venturing through the intriguing countries of the former Yugoslavia, we look to unearth the rich past of this captivating region. Indelibly marked by the poignant conflicts of recent and ancient history we discover the remarkable and inspiring resilience of Sarajevo and Mostar and explore the lasting influences on neighbouring Belgrade.
At either end of this incredible itinerary are two of the most historically rich capital cities in Europe. Staying at the iconic 5-star Hotel Grand Bretagne in Athens, situated in the heart of the city with breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, we spend two days exploring the cradle of western civilisation, where ancient landmarks jostle together with bustling neighbourhoods.
