Europe's most legendary cities, rivers, and sights await you on this mesmerizing river cruise and land vacation. Your adventure begins with two overnights in lovely Lucerne, Switzerland, where a guided walk features the ornate historic homes lining the walled Old Town and Chapel Bridge-the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. Enjoy free time to explore on your own and an excursion takes you to the top of Mount Pilatus for spectacular Alpine views! (Departures October 25 to November 2 visit the Swiss Transport Museum as transportation up Mt. Pilatus is unavailable due to maintenance.)

A short transfer delivers you to your Avalon ship to embark your river cruise on the enchanting Rhine River. Enjoy guided sightseeing in Strasbourg, Koblenz, and Cologne, as well as an excursion to the Black Forest and to Heidelberg-Germany's oldest university town. Sail through the dramatic Rhine Gorge, the most beautiful stretch of river dotted every mile with majestic castles. Visit the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz, see the legendary Lorelei rock, and enjoy a canal cruise in splendid Amsterdam. Transfer by high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris for your exciting Monograms extension. Your hotel reservations, sightseeing with local experts, and transfers to and from your hotels will all be arranged. Best of all, you'll have the services of friendly and knowledgeable Local Hosts® who can answer questions, share inside information, help arrange activities and excursions, and more. We know the very best place to photograph the iconic Eiffel Tower, and we'll take you there to get your shots! You'll go to Notre Dame Cathedral to admire its amazing stained-glass Rose Window, and the Louvre museum to see Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and other treasures. With three overnights, the "City of Light" is yours for discovering.

Next, bid "Au Revoir" as an included high-speed train transfer whisks you from Paris to London for three nights and plenty of time to investigate just what makes England so jolly. From your local expert, you'll hear the inside stories of famous places like Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Go inside St. Paul's Cathedral, the iconic cathedral where Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married. You'll also see Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, and Piccadilly Circus-just to name a few iconic London landmarks. With a full day to explore London on your own, perhaps ride the London Eye, shop at the iconic Harrods department store, or take in a West End theater show. A perfect ending to wonderful Avalon European river cruise and Monograms land vacation!
