A Taste of Europe
On this vacation, get a “Taste of Europe” and sample some of Western Europe’s best-loved areas, including England, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, and France. You’ll visit the main cities—London, Amsterdam, Lucerne, and Paris—and you’ll also behold fascinating scenery and cruise scenic waterways. Experience the wonder of a cruise on the Rhine—with its scenic countryside, historical castles, and charming villages. See the Lorelei rock and hear its mesmerizing legend about a distraught maiden who lured passing navigators to their death. In Amsterdam, hear about its 165 canals and enjoy a canal cruise to appreciate Amsterdam from the waterways. Most days, you’ll have the opportunity to venture out and try local cuisine. Sample a pint in a local British pub, savor French wines in the Parisian cafés, and taste local beers in Germany.
