ROMANTIC RHINE WITH LUCERNE, PARIS & LONDON (FESTIVE)

With lucerne, paris & london (festive) extension
Tour: WZA2F  LUCERNE  LONDON
One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this special winter voyage along the Rhine River. Enjoy glowing Christmas markets on your European river cruise across Germany, and touching in Holland, France, and Switzerland! You’ll start your European holiday with a visit to Lucerne, Switzerland. Your Monograms Lo-cal Host is on hand to assist you with sightseeing, free-time recommendations, and any other assistance you need during your 2-night stay in Lucerne. Enjoy a guided walking tour, including the Lion Monument, Old Town, Chapel Bridge, the Water Tower, Jesuit Church, and an excursion to Mount Pilatus.

Board your vessel in Basel, Switzerland, then head for Breisach, Germany, the gateway to the Black Forest, an area of unrivalled natural beauty, best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock. Here’s your first chance to explore a Christmas market offering many traditional items. Continue your river cruise to Strasbourg, France, where you’ll visit the red-sandstone gothic cathedral with ancient murals and fascinating astronomical clock. Strasbourg is home to one of the oldest and finest Christmas markets in Eu-rope and its centrepiece is a giant Christmas tree. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg’s castle, towering magnificently over the city, and watch the skaters on the ice rink below, and Mainz for a guided walk and visit the captivat-ing Gutenberg Museum. Next up is the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, and unique Siegfried’s Mechani-cal Musical Instrument Museum. You’re sure to be enthralled by the life-size figures of Europe’s largest nativ-ity scene on the Market Square. Pass through the dramatic views of the Rhine Gorge before arriving in Co-logne—your last stop in Germany. Here, you’ll explore the 2,000-year-old city known for its gothic architec-ture and famous twin-spired cathedral. Wander through the Christmas market, try some traditional Lebkuchen and get some inner warmth with a cup of Glühwein. As an exclamation point to this wonderful Rhine river cruise, you’ll spend time in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. The best way to see the treas-ures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.” Transfer by high-speed train to Paris to start your Monograms holiday package with 2 nights in “The City of Light”. Enjoy sightseeing with an expert guide, drive past the Latin Quarter, Les In-valides, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and join a Seine River cruise. You’ll enjoy a guided VIP sightseeing in London, England’s most famous destination, as well as free time to really get to know the city. Sightseeing includes Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and St. Paul’s Cathe-dral. Your Monograms holiday package includes the expert assistance of your Local Host in both Paris and London. Your Romantic Rhine River cruise with stays in Lucerne, Paris, and London provides the perfect combination for a guided European holiday of a lifetime.
