Before you embark on a European river cruise along the Rhine, Moselle, and Main Rivers, begin with a Monograms holiday in Paris. Spend two nights in the “City of Light,” and see the sights with an expert guide. Take a drive past the Latin Quarter, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and enjoy a Seine River cruise. Your knowledgeable Monograms Local Host is on hand to offer guidance and assistance during your stay in Paris.
Take a high-speed train from Paris to Luxembourg City to board your Avalon Suite Ship in Remich on the beautiful Moselle River. Cruise to the city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome—with ancient Roman remnants still found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge. The wine village of Bernkastel, with Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards, will charm you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses still standing from the Middle Ages. Continue through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—considered the most beautiful view of the Rhine River—and see the rock of the Lorelei and ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Stop in Rüdesheim, a quintessential Rhine Valley wine town, before proceeding into the Main River. Visit the magnificent Bishop’s Residenz in Würzburg and marvel at medieval Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
