Guests will also be able to enjoy a relaxing walking tour in the historic town of Sopron with its 13th century Fire Tower, followed by a trip to the World Heritage Site of Holloko: a traditional Hungarian ‘Paloc’ village of white-washed houses.

Later in the itinerary, passengers will be able explore the city of Eger, known for its thermal spas, castles and baroque buildings.
