Enjoy some of the finest festive treats and sights of the Old World
The run up to Christmas is a magical time across Europe, as the great cities are decked in lights and magnificent mediaeval squares host traditional Christmas markets. On this trip we journey from the imperial city of Vienna through wintry landscapes to the historic capical of the Czech Republic, Prague. Christmas markets are to the fore as we stop en route at the mediaeval town of Cesky Krumlov and Pilsen, UNESCO Capital of Culture for 2015 home to Pilsner Urquell. The itinerary is crafted to include lunch stops at traditional restaurants and enough time to explore and enjoy the atmosphere of Europe's festive season.
