This tour is offered only in spring and fall when temperatures are relatively mild and crowds thinner. Showers are quite possible any time.

Transport and Travel Conditions

Local land transport throughout by private air-conditioned motor coach, 24-36 seats depending on ultimate group size (see 'group size').

This tour is not strenuous, however, as with most of our European itineraries, it is quite busy with some full travel / sightseeing days, walking tours on uneven surfaces, and plenty of moving around. In some locations, we may use taxis or public transport for short hops within towns and cities.


Well-located, air- conditioned, mid-range hotels (3 star) throughout. Many are smaller properties (3-4 story) that may not have elevators. All hotels have en suite toilet and bath, though most have shower only. Porter service is sometimes available; you MUST be independent with your luggage. Single rooms are limited in number and likely smaller than twins.
