      Itinerary

      Day 1: Arrive Warsaw.

      On arrival at Warsaw airport, your transfers depart for your hotel at 10:30, 12:30 and 15:30. Relax and settle in before joining your Travel Director at 18:00. Your Welcome Dinner is at Restaurant Zapiecek, an authentic local restaurant full of Polish charm and serving delicious traditional meals accompanied with wine. (Dinner with Wine)

      Day 2: Exploring the Proud Polish Capital of Warsaw.

      A Local Expert will show you how well the Polish capital was restored after almost complete obliteration during World War II. This incredible restoration can be credited to the amazing detail of Canaletto's paintings! Pass the tiered Palace of Culture and stroll through Łazienki Park to the Chopin Memorial. Take a moment to reflect at the Monument to Ghetto Heroes, built in 1948 to commemorate the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. Then walk to the Market Square in the Old Town. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy at leisure. Don't miss the chance to visit Wilanow Palace, the residence of Polish King Sobieski, known as Victor of Vienna, or perhaps attend an exclusive private recital of Chopin music by a celebrated Polish pianist?(Breakfast)

      Day 3: Vilnius, Venerable Capital of Lithuania.

      Pass Augustów and Suwalki during your scenic journey through Masuria, a region rich in lakes and vast forests. Cross into Lithuania and continue to the capital city of Vilnius. (Breakfast / Dinner)

      Day 4: Vilnius and the Island Castle of Trakai.

      Start your morning at the Baroque Church of St. Peter and St. Paul before moving on to see the neoclassical cathedral. Join your Local Expert for a leisurely walk through the pretty Old Town and see the Jesuit University and the Gates of Dawn. A highlight of your travels will be a visit to the fortified island castle of Trakai. Originally built in the 13th century and now restored to all its glory, this red-brick castle is located on an island in Lake Galvė. In the evening, unwind at your hotel or venture out and explore more of Vilnius. Budding artists should head to Užupis, the city���s bohemian art district. Translating to 'the other side of the river,' this relaxed district is home to a number of art galleries, coffee shops and boutique stores. (Breakfast)

      Day 5: Siauliai and the Art Nouveau Nirvana of Riga.

      Head north to visit the unusual Votive Hill of Crosses near Siauliai, the symbol of resistance against the Soviet occupation. Continue your escorted journey to the Latvian capital of Riga, a melange of Teutonic-inspired spires, stylish cocktail lounges and some of the world’s most remarkable art nouveau architecture. (Breakfast)

      Day 6: Riga Sightseeing and on to Tallinn.

      Explore Riga's Old Town with your Local Expert, visit the old aircraft hangers that now house the Riga Central Market, one of the largest visited in Eastern Europe. Enjoy the vibrant colours and flavours when sampling some of the local delicacies as you wander through the maze of stalls. Your travels continue along the shores of the Gulf of Riga and across the Estonian border to reach Tallinn. Hailed by travel aficionados as the new Prague, Tallin is a lively city, where history and modern culture merge. From its brightly coloured architecture, to its quirky art scenes, Tallin is made for the curious and creative. (Breakfast)

      Day 7: Surrender to the Magic of Tallinn.

      With a Local Expert, drift back through 800 years of history as you stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, a scene straight out of a fairytale. Visit the market square with its old German weighing house, pharmacy and Town Hall. The energetic may choose to walk up Toompea Hill to see the castle and Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Enjoy free time to browse Tallinn’s shops, famous for fine amber and silver jewellery. Join your travelling companions at a local restaurant for your Celebration Dinner. Toast your trip as you savour a freshly prepared meal, rich with traditional flavours and accompanied with wine. (Breakfast / Dinner with Wine)
