* Castles along the Rhine Basel to Amsterdam | 8 Days | River Empress 11/4 from CAD$1,660

Be inspired by the fairytale beauty and romantic spirit of the castle-laden, vineyard-rich Rhine.

Flowers tumble from baskets lining streets of half-timbered houses, and lights glint off quiet canals. A mighty river carries ships and cargo through a landscape shaped by time and history. The spires of medieval churches and castles appear around each bend in the river, and vineyards climb the verdant hillsides.

Cruise along the Rhine—Germany on one side, France on the other—and savour French joie de vivre and German Gemutlichkeit. Discover Alsace, whose dual French and German heritage has given it fabulous food and a wine- making tradition that goes back to the Romans. Bicycle beside the river, passing Roman ruins and Romanesque churches. Marvel at castles that were once mighty fortresses guarding territory and trade routes, and that now tower above the water as romantic ruins. Visit the fairytale cities of Riquewihr, Kaysersberg, Colmar, Strasbourg, and Rudesheim, and taste delightful white wines in the villages where the grapes are grown. Beethoven and Byron loved the romantic landscapes of the Rhine River. The beauty that inspired them is still yours to experience.
