Bridging The Gap – Marvel At Europe’s Best Bridges This Summer

Enjoy a front-row seat to admire some of Europe’s leading architectural bridges in five-star all-inclusive luxury this summer.

Budapest’s Széchenyi Chain Bridge is one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks. Built in 1849 the bridge played a crucial part in connecting the former segregated districts of Buda and Pest on the river Danube. Witness the unification on Scenic’s eight-day Gems of the Danube itinerary departing 1 July 2020; prices start from £1,845 per person.

The eight-day Idyllic Rhône river cruise takes guests from Lyon to Tarascon passing Pont D'Avignon and one of Southern France’s most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Pont Du Gard.

Believed to have been built in the 1st century AD, this Roman aqueduct was originally used as a means of transporting goods and fresh water to the Roman outpost of Nemausus, now the city of Nîmes, and remains one of the most impressive and best-preserved structures of the ancient world. Prices for the itinerary start from £2,070 per person departing from 30 April 2020.

Alternatively, guests sailing with Scenic can add to their bridge-bucket-list with a city-stay extension to their cruise allowing them to marvel at Prague’s Charles Bridge, Lisbon’s Pont 25 de Abril, Lucerne’s Chapel Bridge or Pont Neuf in Paris.

Guests can save up to 40 per cent on all 2020 European river cruise itineraries and complimentary door-to-door private chauffeur transfers, when booking before 10 February 2020.

Prices include return flights, transfers, gratuities, exceptional wining and dining experiences, a personal butler and a variety of shore excursions.
