Spend Nine nights flitting from one spectacular city to another during this week-long mini break to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest! Wander the Old Square of Prague, soak up the culture in Vienna and feast your eyes on the stunning sights of Budapest.
Propel yourself into the wonderful world of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. Nestled on the Vltava River and nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires", Prague oozes opulence from every street corner. Dotted with bridges which leapfrog from one riverbank to another, not to mention soaring steeples and spires brushing against the golden glow of the Czech sky, Prague is full of wonder and magic.
After rubbing shoulders with Prague’s historic treasures, you'll make your way to Vienna, the capital of Austria, for a two nights' stay surrounded by artistic and intellectual legacy. A city which once witnessed the musical prowess of Mozart and Beethoven and the wisdom of Sigmund Freud, Vienna attracts culture vultures and history buffs alike. Explore the Imperial Palace of the Schönbrunn, expansive and honey-colored, and lose yourself in star-studded museums displaying works of the likes of Gustav Klimt.
The last leg of your trip will see you step foot into Budapest, the capital of Hungary and a modern day fairy tale. Chain Bridge connects the hilly terrain of Buda with the flat plains of Pest, and the Old Town, poised on Castle Hill with its own funicular, is home to the History Museum. Tracing life from Roman times onward, the History Museum offers your very own window into the past. When you’re not brushing up on your history, visit Trinity Square, boasting the 13th century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion and their sweeping views.

Your first stop on this eight-night getaway to paradisaical Portugal is Porto – a city in the country’s northwest and known for its port wine. Travelers certainly make the most of the wining and dining in Porto, glugging velvety ports and sinking their teeth into meaty francesinha sandwiches (one of the local delicacies).
Two nights later, you’ll find yourself in Albufeira for the second leg of your getaway. This pearly-white coastal gem nestled in Portugal’s Algarve region. Vibrant, lively and beachy, Albufeira is a beach-hoppers paradise – a perfect place to relax by the shore for hours on end; or fill your evenings with singing and dancing.
Following on from the beach paradise of Albufeira, you’ll stop off in Lisbon for two nights, home to the imposing Sao Jorge Castle which offers superlative views of the city’s reddish brown rooftops. The Portuguese capital offers the best of both worlds; heaps of culture and miles of beaches from Cascais to Estoril. This means you can go from basking in the sun’s rays to sightseeing around the city within a matter of hours.
