From £2935 for 26 days
Trip Overview
Grand standing capitals and quaint seaside villages, hidden mountain hamlets and a city set on water – eastern Europe covers a pretty impressive gauntlet of visitor attractions. Discover the mainstay allures of this entrancing region, plus a whole host of its lesser-known aspects, making your way down from Hungary through the Balkans and east over to Italy. Encounter the up-and-up vibe of once war-ravaged Sarajevo, fall in love with gorgeous Dubrovnik, kick into adventure mode in Ljubljana and feast until your belly's content in gastronomy-obsessed Italy.

Trip Highlights

•   Learn about the dark history and rebuilding of Bosnia and Herzegovina on a walking tour of Sarajevo, then visit Mostar’s famous Old Bridge and witness a traditional bridge jumper hurl themselves into the icy waters below

•   Immerse yourself in the edgy street scene of Belgrade's Bohemian Quarter, then dance the night away in one of Europe’s nightlife hotspots

•   Split is a haven of relaxation and culture. Unwind with a walk along the waterfront promenade and admire the impressive ruins of Diocletian's Palace

•   Croatia's amazing array of food specialities mix multiple European influences, and Zagreb harnesses the best of them. Feast on Mediterranean fresh seafood, Italian-influenced antipasti and the crunchy, doughy dessert of fritule

•   The floating city of Venice is one place you’ll be happy to get lost in. The city's maze of alleyways, canals and lagoon islands lead to over 130 churches, all with their own distinct character

•   Walk along Cinque Terre's rocky coastal pathways, calling into the sleepy pastel villages of Manarola, Riomaggiore and Vernazza

Itinerary & Notes
Szia! Welcome to Hungary. Budapest is Hungary's intoxicating capital, on the banks of the Danube River. In the evening after the welcome meeting perhaps head out with your new travel buddies and your leader for dinner, then take a night walk along the Danube River to see the surrounding buildings and bridges lit up in lights. Not to be missed are Budapest's funky 'ruin pubs'.
