Harmony of Central Europe – first departure on May 1st, 2016
From the beginning, the 14-day Harmony of Central Europe Luxury Gold itinerary brings every element of guests’ ideal vacation into perfect harmony. After walking in the steps of a 6-year-old Mozart at a specially arranged, out-of-hours Exclusive Insight visit to the glittering Schönbrunn Palace, clients take their seats for a Michelin-starred meal that is a virtuosic performance all its own. They will savour every note of their delicious Epicurean Dining experiences as the First Strudel House of Pest gives way to a private champagne cruise on the ‘blue’ Danube.
