Romantic Rhine With 3 Nights In Lake Como, 1 Night In Lucerne, Mount Pilatus, 2 Nights In Paris & 2 on Avalon Panorama

Product Image
Your European vacation begins with a Monograms® vacation package in Lake Como and Lucerne, with a special excursion up Mount Pilatus for spectacular Swiss Alpine panoramas. Your Local Host® is on hand to assist you with sightseeing, free-time recommendations, and any other assistance you need during your stay in Lake Como and Lucerne. In Como, an included guided walking tour features the charming historic district, the Gothic-style Town Hall, and the impressive Duomo. Enjoy a guided walking tour, including the Lion Monument, Old Town, Chapel Bridge, the Water Tower, Jesuit Church, and an excursion to Mount Pilatus.

Embark on your Rhine River cruise through France, Germany, and Holland. Board your Avalon Suite Ship® in Basel, Switzerland, then head for Breisach, Germany, at the foot of the Kaiserstuhl Mountain on the French-German border. Here you’ll find the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest, an area of unrivaled natural beauty, best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock. Continue your river cruise to Strasbourg, France, and marvel at the red-sandstone Gothic-style cathedral with ancient murals and the fascinating astronomical clock. Stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg Castle, towering magnificently over the city, or stop in Mainz for a guided walk and a visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum. Sail to the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, and a visit to the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum, then pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge-the most beautiful view of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Last stop in Germany is Cologne-a 2,000-year-old city known for its Gothic-style architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral.

At the conclusion of your Rhine River cruise, you’ll spend time in colorful Amsterdam. See the treasures of this 700-year-old city on an included canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s "Golden Age." Spend free time discovering world-famous museums, and an abundance of restaurants in the vibrant, modern capital of Holland.

Transfer by high-speed train to Paris to start your Monograms® vacation package with two nights in "The City of Light". Your guided sightseeing with an expert guide includes a drive past the Latin Quarter, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe, followed by a Seine River cruise. You’ll enjoy guided sightseeing of London’s iconic landmarks, including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Enjoy free time as well to explore London on your own. Monograms is with you all the way with helpful onsite support from your expert Local Hosts® in both Paris and London.
