DAY 1 - ARRIVE IN PRAGUE
Arrive in Prague today and check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. After you've settled in, set out to explore the capital of the Czech Republic. Prague is known as the ‘City of a Hundred Spires' due to its steeple-woven skyline, and from a vantage point along the river or looking down from the St. Vitus Cathedral, you'll be able to see why. Indulge in some fantastic Czech cuisine this evening, and be sure to try a local beer - many say it is the finest in the world. (Overnight in Prague)

DAY 2 - PRAGUE
After a good night's rest and breakfast in your hotel, enjoy a full day sight-seeing in this attractive medieval city. Take a walk along Prague's centrepiece, the 14th century Charles Bridge and admire the stunning views of Prague Castle towering above the city and the Vltava River. Whilst riverside, perhaps visit the Mala Strana (the Little Quarter), home to the Baroque church of St Nicholas and the Renaissance gardens. Why not go off the tourist trail to explore the narrow cobbled streets that surround the Old Town Square and discover hidden courtyards, medieval chapels and delightful cafes. Take a stroll around the Astronomical Clock in the centre of the Old Town - it is 600 years old and quite a phenomenal sight. (Overnight in Prague) B

DAY 3 - PRAGUE TO VIENNA
Enjoy breakfast in your hotel, and then follow the tracks south from Prague to Vienna on a Eurocity train. Upon arrival, check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. Perhaps spend the afternoon indulging in some delicious Sachertorte or head to the Gothic St Stephen's Cathedral, one of the city's most famous landmarks. (Overnight in Vienna) B

DAY 4 - VIENNA
After breakfast this morning, spend the day exploring beautiful Vienna. Much of Viennese cultural life can be found in the Museumsquartier, home to an array of museums, cafes and restaurants within a former imperial stable building. Why not enjoy an operatic experience to remember at the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), or view the works of famous painters such as Rubens and Raphael at the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts). Take in a performance at the Spanish Riding School - one of the oldest riding schools in the world and home to the famous Lipizzaner horses. Vienna also sits on the banks of the Danube, the perfect spot for a scenic boat cruise! And if you are interested in history, follow in the footsteps of the Habsburgs with a visit to the baroque Belvedere and Schönbrunn Palaces. (Overnight in Vienna) B

DAY 5 - VIENNA TO BUDAPEST
Enjoy a morning at leisure in Vienna, then continue your journey southeast on the high-speed route, crossing the border into Hungary, arriving at your final stop - Budapest. Upon arrival, check in at your hotel for a two-night stay and set out to explore the city. Be sure to immerse yourself in Budapest's beauty by admiring the grand architecture along the banks of the Danube River, best seen from the impressive Szechenyi Chain Bridge, which connects the two halves of the city Buda and Pest. (Overnight in Budapest) B

DAY 6 - BUDAPEST
Explore the “City of Spas” at your leisure. Why not spend a relaxing day at the Szechenyi Baths, 15 indoor and three outdoor pools are kept at a constant warm temperature to enjoy all year round. Take in the views from the Szechenyi Chain Bridge or perhaps learn about the harrowing history of the House of Terror, now a museum. Marvel at the magnificent frescoes at the Inner city Franciscan Church or maybe view the Roman remains at the Aquincum Museum. Why not explore Budapest's fascinating underground caves or perhaps take the Funicular up to the top of Castle Hill for fantastic views of the River Danube and the city. After a busy day sightseeing, treat yourself to a local beer and some fine food in the Old Town. (Overnight in Budapest) B
