Grand Elegance in the Heart of Europe
Budapest, Vienna, and the Orient Express

April 30–May 8, 2019
presented by The Historic New Orleans Collection
Registration: Registration: $7,500  (double occupancy; $1,500 single supplement)

For decades, Budapest and Vienna were sister cities of imperial grandeur separated by an iron curtain, former Habsburg capitals set on very different paths by geopolitical happenstance. Today, they sparkle with rekindled elegance, and this special tour, custom-designed by The Historic New Orleans Collection, brings out the best of both capitals—offering special access to great museums, private palaces and homes, and lovely art collections, while providing meals in splendid restaurants. As a very special treat, our journey between Budapest and Vienna will be made in opulence on board the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express—a magical morning capped by an unforgettable gourmet luncheon prepared by the head chef. Accommodations for the tour are in excellent, five-star hotels with panoramic city-view rooms at the immaculately redesigned Hilton Budapest and spacious guest rooms at the Steigenberger Hotel Herrenhof in the heart of Vienna’s Old Town. Throughout our itinerary, we will make special connections back to New Orleans and Louisiana, while learning from some of the best expert guides in Hungary and Austria.
