After meeting your group in London, this evening you'll take a direct flight to Bucharest, the lively capital city of Romania. We set out on a guided city tour on Day 2, discovering the palaces, remains of medieval homes and 21st century modernist skyscrapers that all mesh together to make for a remarkable and surprising destination. We transfer to our ship this afternoon, the Amadeus Silver II, where we're welcomed with a drink. There's time to settle into your cabin before our first five-course dinner.
Begin today at London St Pancras, where you'll meet your Tour Manager as well of the rest of your group, to start your journey to Europe. Board the Eurostar travelling to Brussels, then change for the service to Nuremberg, via Cologne.

The adjustments made necessary by the bridge closures at Novi Sad were superbly handled. The rail adjustments due to a general strike in Belgium say much about Great Rail communication. The optional excursions were better than the planned ones. The Tour Manager went way above and beyond the call of duty
