Our guided walking tour will introduce the exquisite Old Town (Staré Mesto), the city’s heart since the 13th-century, then we cross the River Vlatva by the famous cobbled Charles Bridge, with its blackened statues, into the steeply sloping left bank. Here, the Hradcany district is dominated by the imposing mass of Prague’s ancient castle. Beneath this magnificent building, home to great St Vitus’ Cathedral and the historic Royal Palace, are the narrow, sloping cobbled streets of Malá Strana, the Little Quarter. After our tour, we'll have the rest of the day free to explore at our leisure.

SATURDAY; Day 3: Tour of Dresden, Germany
Today we enjoy our Dresden excursion and tour.
Our excursion, like all events and tours is included, but should you wish, you are welcome to skip it and spend the day touring Prague.
The former Eastern German city of Dresden on the River Elbe, is a thriving city as part of reunited Germany. it is perhaps best known for the massive firebombing that destroyed most of the city in the last months of World War II. Our local guide will show us the restored glories of this Baroque city including the stupendous Frauenkirche, which lay in ruins from 1945 until its rebuilding following Reunification, the surrounding Altstadt, Baroque Theaterplatz, the Residenzschloss – seat of Saxon kings and home to a priceless jewel collection – and the pavilions and courtyards of the Zwinger buildings. On the Elbe's northern bank, Neustadt and neighboring Aussere Neustadt brim with life, and are home to several fascinating museums. Don’t miss the view of the Altstadt from Neustadt’s riverside meadows.
After a fascinating day, we return to Prague.
SUNDAY; Day 4: Travel through Bohemia & Vienna Tour
We take our leave of Prague, and head south into a rolling, romantic region of dense forests, medieval towns and hill-top castles. By early afternoon we will hve have crossed, on our sightseeing adventure, into Austria where will arrive in the great Imperial city of Vienna.
We’ll enjoy our Vienna guided tour, the magnificent seat of the Hapsburg Empire, with its imposing Baroque palaces and cathedral. The world famous Hofburg Palace is home to the Spanish Riding School, the Vienna Boys’ Choir, several museums and the Austrian President, while the Old Town (Innere Stadt) is a labyrinth of streets humming with the buzz of shops and cafés.
MONDAY; Day 5: Schonbrunn Palace & Mozart @ Vienna State Opera
This morning, we have our excursion to the Schönbrunn Palace. An Imperial summer home and one of Austria’s greatest treasures, this magnificent building once echoed with the music of the young Mozart. In the show baking parlor of Café Residenz in Schönbrunn Palace, master pastry chefs show how a hand-pulled original Viennese apple strudel is made. Onlookers not only learn how this divine Viennese dessert is made but are also given the original Viennese Apple Strudel recipe to try out for themselves at home. The mouthwatering aromas that issue forth from the bakery make it hard to resist trying a piece of freshly baked apple strudel with coffee at one of the small tables in the imperial bakery.
This evening we will dress in our finest to enjoy dinner at the 1870 restaurant at the Grand Hotel Vienna, before continuing to the Golden Hall of the Musikverein (Vienna State Opera) to experiencing a live performance of the works of Mozart by an orchestra whose members are dressed in period costume.
