Fly to Vienna where you will be met and transferred to your cruise ship for three nights and meet your crew at a welcome reception.
Today is dedicated to the beautiful and romantic Wachau Valley, where many excellent Austrian wines are grown and produced. This morning, visit Melk's magnificent Benedictine Abbey, that dominates the town from its commanding hilltop site and is one of Europe's largest monasteries. The abbey houses an ornate library with over 80,000 printed books and 2,000 manuscripts. The splendour of the church with its frescoed ceilings, stunning high altar, marble statues, and 210-foot-high cupola is inspiring and the view from the abbey terrace across the Danube and surrounding countryside is breathtaking. Later, lounge on the Sky Deck with a glass of white wine as you cruise to Dürnstein, whose blue and white Baroque Stiftskirche stands right on the river bank. Above the town are the ruins of the castle where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned in 1192. Explore on your own or choose from a range of optional excursions.
Situated at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, Bratislava is the dynamic capital of Slovakia.
