Rybak Europe Tour May 1 - 15, 2017

Rybak Europe Tour --- SEPTEMBER 16 - 28, 2017


 September 16 - 28, 2017

 Mediterranean Cruise (Italy, France, Spain) and

Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic





Saturday, Sept. 16

Depart from Houston airport and fly in direction of Europe, Milan, Italy. Enjoy complimentary food and drinks on the intercontinental flight and get to know your fellow travelers.


Sunday, Sept. 17

Arrive in Milan, ITALY.  The bus with the tour guide will be waiting for you at the airport and take you to Genoa port to board the ship MSC Orchestra for a 7-day Mediterranean Cruise!  We check in our Balcony Cabins, attend security training, tour the ship, and then time to relax!  Leaving the port at 6 pm is truly an unforgettable experience!


Monday, Sept. 18

Cannes, the symbol of the Riviera – FRANCE    8:00 am – 4:00 pm

With its immaculate seafront hotels and exclusive beach concessions, glamorous yachts and designer boutiques, Cannes is in many ways the definitive Riviera resort, a place where appearances count, especially during the film festival in May. The seafront Palais des Festivals is the heart of the film festival but also hosts conferences, tournaments and trade shows. The old town, known as Le Suquet after the hill on which it stands, provides a great panorama of the curve of Cannes’ Bay.


Tuesday, Sept. 19

Palma de Mallorca – SPAIN    2:00 pm – 12:30 am

The obvious landmark to see in Palma on your cruise holiday is the Cathedral, which dominates the Mediterranean Sea waterfront and backs onto the oldest part of the city, a cluster of alleys and narrow lanes whose northern and eastern limits are marked by the zigzag of avenues built beside – or in place of – the city walls.


Wednesday, Sept. 20

Barcelona – SPAIN    9:30 am – 6:00 pm

Spain’s second city, and the self-confident capital and port of Catalunya - vibrates with life, and there’s certainly not another city in the country to touch it for sheer style, looks or energy. A cruise excursion to Barcelona city center will take you to discover its world-class art museums and its fashionable designer restaurants, bars, galleries and shops. And in Antoni Gaudí’s extraordinary church of the Sagrada Família and the world-famous boulevard that is the Ramblas, you have two Mediterranean sights that are high up on any list!


Thursday, Sept. 21

Ajaccio, Corsica – FRANCE    12:00 – 7:00 pm

Ajaccio is a relaxed and good-looking place for a visit to Corsica, with an exceptionally mild climate, and a wealth of smart cafés, restaurants and shops. The core of the old town of Ajaccio – a cluster of ancient streets spreading north and south of place Foch, which opens out to the seafront by the port and the marina – holds the most interest.


Friday, Sept. 22

Civitavecchia, Rome – ITALY    8:00 am – 7:00 pm

The port of Civitavecchia is one of the largest in Italy and is, of course, a destination of MSC Cruises in the Mediterranean. Civitavecchia enjoys a millenary history due to its coves along the coast, which offered a perfect shelter for vessels, making it a natural port long before cruise ships sailed the seas, and in fact the port was known to the Romans as Centumcellae. Or you can take one of the excursions to the ancient Rome which is only 1.5 hour drive.


Saturday, Sept. 23

La Spezia, Cinque Terre – ITALY    7:00 am – 7:00 pm

The port at the head of the majestic Gulf of La Spezia, an impressively sweeping panorama of islands and rough headlands renamed the Gulf of the Poets, is workaday La Spezia.

A major naval and shipbuilding centre, it has a fine art gallery, the Museo Amedeo Lia, probably the finest collection of medieval and Renaissance art you can enjoy on a holiday to Liguria. You have to stop off at the breathtaking folded coastline of the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) that stretches between the beach resort of Levanto and the port of La Spezia. It’s named for five tiny villages – Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore – wedged into a series of coves between sheer cliffs, whose comparative remoteness and dramatic positions make the region the principal scenic highlight of the whole Riviera.


Sunday, Sept. 24

Arrive at Genoa, Italy at approx. 8:00 am, and then disembark the ship. Now we travel by bus to Tirano, where we get on the Bernina Express train for a scenic ride. A particular high-point of the ride is the beautiful panoramic view from the Bernina Express, as it passes a land of swaying palms in Tirano and continues to mighty glaciers in Switzerland. We will experience one of the most spectacular ways to cross the Alps! This winding mountain railway connects northern and southern Europe without the use of any toothed-wheel mechanism. We will end up at one of the most famous holiday destinations in the world (located in Engadin) on the southern side of the Alps at 6,089 ft. above sea level – in between Zurich, Milan and Munich. We continue with bus to Innsbruck. Check-in our hotel in Innsbruck for 2 nights.


Monday, Sept. 25

Today we will drive to Wattens, just outside of Innsbruck known for the production of world known Swarovski jewelry. We will view the permanent exhibition of Swarovski Crystal World, the famous producer of crystal items like figurines, optics and jewelry. You can shop in the largest Swarovski store in the world for reasonable prices. Drive back to Innsbruck downtown, to one of the highest points of the city for a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding mountains from the top of the ski-jump which was featured in the winter Olympics. We will get back to our hotel and in the evening attend a show called Tyrolean Evening with typical Austrian music, dances, playing different special musical instruments.


TuesdaySept. 26

On our way to Prague we will stop enroute in Munich, one of Germany’s most attractive cities.  We will spend most of the day at the OKTOBERFEST, the largest beer festival in the world - where you can enjoy a great atmosphere of many tents set up by Germany’s largest breweries!  Here is where delicious local food is served together with large 1 liter beer mugs!  All of this is accompanied by live brass band music.  Outdoors you can find many stalls serving food & souvenirs, as well as rollercoasters.  Simply lots of fun & BEER!!

Then enjoy a PARTY ON THE BUS as we continue to Prague, Czech Republic, and check-in our hotel.


Wednesday, Sept. 27

In the morning, we’ll  have a guided walking tour of Prague, beginning with Prague Castle and then on to St. Vitus Cathedral, Hradcany Quarter, and the Church of Our Lady Victorious which houses the famous wax statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague.  We will walk across the famous 14th century Charles Bridge and continue on to Old Town Square to see the Astronomical clock.  After lunch, we will end the tour at Wenceslas Square, which has historically been the sight of many events including the 1989 Velvet Revolution demonstrations.  You will have free time for individual sightseeing and great shopping at the numerous stores lining the square.  In the evening, we will take a 2-hour dinner cruise on the Vltava River where you can see the sights of Prague beautifully illuminated at night!  You will see Prague Castle, Vysehrad-Upper Castle, National Theatre and other sights of Prague.  This will also be our farewell party before we prepare for the return home!  Tonight would be a great night to dress formal if you would like.


Thursday, Sept. 28

Depart from Prague airport early in the morning heading to Houston, HOME SWEET HOME!
