PRE - Invitation To Prague

PRE - Invitation To Prague

Explore the wonders of Prague and Cesky Krumlov, two architecturally rich UNESCO World Heritage Sites whose treasures include medieval castles, historical churches and town squares little changed over the centuries.

DAY 1

After flying into Václav Havel Airport (PRG) in Prague, you will be met and transferred to your hotel in the city, where the remainder of the day will be at your leisure and dinner will be on your own. The architecture downtown is so spectacular that Prague has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and there is much to explore.

DAY 2

Following breakfast at the hotel, you will depart on a half-day sightseeing tour. The first stop will be Prague Castle, the largest medieval castle in Europe. Founded in 870 AD, it was the seat of the Kings of Bohemia for centuries, and today the president of the Czech Republic rules from here.

Overlooking the city, the hilltop Prague Castle complex covers more than 18 acres and is centered in between three great courtyards. St. Vitus Cathedral is the dominant building in the complex and the most recognizable landmark in the city. Renovations following wars and fires, along with differing political forces, have combined to create an intriguing mix of churches, palaces, fortifications, museums, art galleries and a monastery.

After visiting the castle, you will walk along the pedestrian-only Charles Bridge, which leads to Prague’s beautiful Old Town. At its heart stands the Old Town Square, a lively gathering place with historical facades and cobbled walkways.

Created in the 12th century as the central marketplace, Old Town Square has since been expanded to include a multitude of buildings in the Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic styles. Don’t miss the renowned astronomical clock.

Then, enjoy a walk around the Jewish Quarter, which was created in the 13th century, when the city’s Jews were ordered to vacate their homes and settle in this area. Later known as the Prague Jewish Ghetto, the quarter endured centuries of architectural changes, many of which can still be seen. The most remarkable sights include the Old-New Synagogue, Spanish Synagogue, Town Hall, and Old Jewish Cemetery.

In time, you will walk the short distance back to the hotel and spend the remainder of the afternoon at your leisure. Dinner at the hotel follows, after which you will spend the evening at the hotel.

DAY 3

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and then enjoy a scenic drive through the Bohemian countryside to the medieval city of Cesky Krumlov. Like Prague, Cesky Krumlov is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a distinction it earned for being an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architecture has survived intact for centuries.

Upon arriving, you will tour the mighty Renaissance castle, once the seat of the powerful Rožmberk and Schwarzenberg families. The castle was built in 1240 and houses a rich collection of period furniture, Flemish tapestries and historical weapons.

Later, you will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and a stroll through Cesky Krumlov’s quaint old streets, which are lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses. These historical buildings once belonged to wealthy noblemen.

Free time follows, during which you may shop, explore the labyrinthine alleyways, drop into a traditional pub, and wander along the banks of the River Vltava. Afterward, you will drive back to the hotel in Prague, where dinner will be on your own.

DAY 4

After breakfast at the hotel, you will check out and transfer to the Prague airport for your flight to Copenhagen. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to the port of Copenhagen for embarkation.

Overland Tours



St. Emilion: Overnight at Grand Barrail Chateaux

St. Emilion: Overnight at Grand Barrail Chateaux

Delight in the medieval atmosphere of Saint-Emilion as you tour the village’s marquee attractions and then savor a tasting of its distinctive wines, which have brought even further acclaim to this unforgettable region of France.

Day 1

Disembark from the ship in Bordeaux and enjoy a brief orientation tour of the city as you drive toward Saint-Emilion, a region revered for its outstanding wines and natural beauty. The region and its namesake village have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because Saint-Emilion represents a historic vineyard landscape that has survived intact. Viticulture was introduced here by the Romans and then greatly enhanced in the Middle Ages.

Upon arriving in the medieval village of Saint-Emilion, which overlooks the fertile Dordogne Valley, you will drive to the

spectacular, 19th-century Chateau Hotel “Grand Barrail Hotel, Restaurant and Spa”, where you will check-in and enjoy a magnificent 5-course dinner in the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant before retiring for the evening.

Day 2

After breakfast and checking out of the hotel, you will transfer to the cellars of a nearby wine chateau estate for an inspired wine tasting. The Saint-Emilion wine appellation is one of the most prolific in the Bordeaux region, and its wines are predominately made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc, a reflection of the clay and chalk-rich soils around Saint-Emilion.

Next you will tour several of St. Emilion’s landmark attractions. Both the ramparts and sections of the lovely Collegiale church date to the 12th century. A wonderful timbered house from the 15th century flanks the arched Cadene gate, which may once have been equipped with a chain to control traffic between the upper and lower towns. The striking King’s Tower offers a panoramic view of the countryside and hints at the fortress that once stood here. Still, the most unusual attraction is the underground cathedral that was carved out of a cave where the Benedictine monk Saint Emilion once lived as a hermit.

You will then have some free time to explore areas that may have piqued your interest earlier. You might enjoy meandering along the cobbled streets, browsing the boutiques and having lunch on your own. Of course, toasting the occasion with a glass of Saint-Emilion’s finest wine.

Afterwards, you will drive back to the ship in Bordeaux.
