15 day heart of europe circle tour
After 60 years, Image Tours’ signature tour remains as popular as ever. This 15-day itinerary offers seven countries, historic cities, spectacular scenery and lots of local flavor. It is an ideal choice for first-time travelers to Europe or anyone desiring a taste of the Old World at a great value.
Highlights of this iconic itinerary include Heidelberg, Germany, idyllically situated on the Neckar River and dominated by the ruins of Heidelberg castle and Rothenburg, a beautifully preserved medieval village surrounded by the original town walls and without a single modern building in sight.
Visit Munich, the elegant capital of Bavaria; the Imperial City of Innsbruck, Austria, capital of Tyrol and two-time host of the Winter Olympics; and Verona, Italy of Romeo & Juliet fame.
While in Switzerland, gaze upon lake Lucerne, and the soaring peaks of Rigi, Stanserhorn and Pilatus, surely an impressive sight from any angle! Travel onto explore Paris (The City of Light), which will reveal sights such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, Opera, art museums and famous Champs-Elysees.
Antwerp, Belgium, is known for its convivial atmosphere and outdoor cafes, while the Dutch Lowlands, with pristine examples of canals, bridges and windmills will also be included in this popular tour. Also included is a journey down the legendary Rhine River where you’ll glide past endearing villages, medieval fortresses, and hillside vineyards on an upstream pleasure cruise.
This tour provides a “taste” of Europe’s most popular countries.
