Follow Michael Portillo's Journeys
Armed with a 1913 guide book Michael Portillo has been exploring some of the great cities of Europe during his recent BBC series Great Continental Railway Journeys which still has three more episodes to run every Thursday evening on BBC2 at 9.00pm. One Travellers single traveller’s can also follow in his footsteps.
The once great empire of Austria-Hungary, domain of the famous Habsburg monarchs is where our single travellers can immerse themselves in the magnificent city of Budapest and the beautiful and elegant city of Vienna with its pre-war decadence on our 10-day Prague, Vienna and Budapest singles holidays. With many meals and most excursions included, interesting stops between cities and a warm family in the Vienna Woods it truly is a great view of these three cities and not just a fleeting glance.
The breathtaking scenery of Austria’s Salzkammergut and the emperor’s summer house at Bad Ischl where in 1914 history changed forever are just two of the many included excursions on our 8-day Austrian Lakes and the Tyrol Holiday that our singles travellers can enjoy along with a Mozart concert, scenic lake cruise and horse and carriage rides. All with half board and a host of extras!
This week Michael visits Berlin with a turbulent history making this city unique and Dresden painstakingly rebuilt with the original stones to its former glory which are included on our 6-day Berlin Potsdam and Dresden singles holidays where we also visit the canals and small communities in the Spreewald that despite Hitler and communism have managed to maintain their flamboyant costumes, traditions and culture.
These cities await you with the comfort of a group of like minded single travellers and the attention and expert knowledge
