Glamorous train travel in Central and Eastern Europe
Central and Eastern Europe have a new, glamorous way to explore the cities and the countryside. The Danube Express, a restored 1950’s commuter-rail train that includes 12 sleeping cars filled with restored wood paneling and original furniture, launched last September with routes in 10 countries. For $3,828 per person, the 10-day Bosphorus Journey takes you from London to Istanbul. It includes two nights aboard the Danube Express with meals and drinks, seven nights at hotels in Budapest and Istanbul, plus sightseeing tours, dinners, and a round-trip flight from London to Budapest.
