See ancient castles standing majestically on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Get a chance to try some of the best wines Germany has to offer in the wine village of Bernkastel, home to Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards. This beautiful area will fascinate you with its narrow streets and half-timbered houses which have been standing since the Middle Ages. The opportunities to be swept away are countless on this fabulous river cruise vacation as you make your way to the ancient city of Trier, Germany—believed to be even older than Rome. Many remnants of ancient Rome can still be found, such as imperial baths and the Roman Bridge, with stone pilings dating from 144-152 AD.
