Named after Strauss’s celebrated Waltz, this eight day voyage is a great way to experience the many wonders of the legendary river. You’ll travel north from Hungary’s capital Budapest to first call at its historic former capital Esztergom before exploring Slovakia’s capital Belgrade. Then it’s on to Lower Austria and historic Durnstein, Melk with its beautiful abbey then Linz. From here, there’s the chance to take an excursion to Salzburg, birthplace of Mozart. The classical theme continues as you head into Vienna, home of many great composers and some truly incredible architecture, before returning to Budapest, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour.
