Days 1-3

London to Vienna

Board the Eurostar to Brussels after meeting at the St Pancras Departure Office, continuing on to Ulm, via Frankfurt, where you overnight. On Day 2, you travel to the stunning city of Vienna via Munich. On arrival, you are treated to a guided tour of this magnificent city, which includes the famous Ringstrasse, the mighty Hofburg Palace and the charming Old Town. The rest of the day is at leisure ahead of dinner this evening. Vienna has plenty to occupy you; perhaps visit the Mozarthaus, where legendary composer Mozart resided for a number of years. Tour the apartment where 'The Marriage of Figaro' was composed, noting that curators from the Wien Museum have carefully placed objects from Mozart's time to replicate the feel of 18th century Vienna. For the next two nights, your hotel is the 4* Falkensteiner Hotel Am Schottenfeld, which is conveniently located within walking distance of Vienna's Museum Quarter and the Ringstrasse Boulevard.

Day 3 is free for you to explore the grand city of Vienna. Why not visit Schönbrunn Palace? Set in hundreds of acres of beautiful gardens, the elegant palace is one of Vienna's architectural highlights. Considered a World Cultural Heritage site, the Baroque estate was owned by the Habsburgs, and is kept largely in its original condition. Designed by Jean Trehet in 1695, the gardens boast an orangerie, a palm house, which dates back to 1882 and features plants from around the world, and a maze. Alternatively, you could take the lift up the Donauturm, with its 150-metre (492 feet) high viewing terrace, for panoramic views of the city and beyond.

Mounted on the oldest part of the 14th century Old Town Hall, this unique clock features the twelve apostles, who appear every hour between 9am and 11pm. Offering architectural history, art galleries and arguably Europe's best beer, Prague is a plentiful paradise for any curious traveller.

On Day 5, enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Prague, discovering some of the 'Golden City's' most famous sights, including the medieval Hradcany Castle district - the largest castle complex in Europe - and the historic Old Town Square, as well as Charles Bridge with its striking Baroque statues. Dating back to the 14th century, Charles Bridge is 1,700 feet in length, featuring 16 arches and 30 statues of religious figures.
