In any season, Europe offers culture through world-class museums, an abundance of UNESCO-protected castles, monuments, ancient sites, local cuisine and wine. But there is something magical in gliding along the famed waterways of Europe during the fall. The air is refreshingly crisp after hot summer months, the picturesque landscapes become painted in red-amber-yellow colours, the crowds of tourists have left and local life goes back to normal. Whatever it is, Europe’s grand capitals and historic landmarks are even more breathtaking during this time of year.
European Fall Cruises from $2,049 per person
Europe is a roadmap of grand waterways, such as the Rhine and Danube. If you want to have an enjoyable and memorable vacation for the lowest possible price, the AmaWaterways cruise is your best choice.
European river cruises, river cruising in general, differs greatly from other methods of travel for many reasons: it offers a peaceful and scenic environment while the ride is gentle and smooth on some of the world's most remarkable waterways. In a river cruise you can find a balance between historic cities and the flourishing surrounding nature. As ships dock closely to town centers, you can simply walk off the ship and find yourself in the middle of a market or landmark within minutes of your arrival.
AmaWaterways is a leading company in delivering European river cruises that offers innovative itineraries, spacious staterooms, upscale amenities, unique ship designs and all inclusive pricing: your one upfront payment covers your stateroom, meals, onboard entertainment and professionally guided excursions. Some packages also include hotel accommodations before or after your cruise.

- Budapest: The capital of Hungary, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. Due to its scenic setting and uniquely rich architecture it is nicknamed "Paris of the East". It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List for the cultural and architectural significance of the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.
- Amsterdam: Widely known as Venice of the North, Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ largest city and its financial, cultural, and creative centre. This city is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, attracting over 7 million international travellers annually. Many beautiful canals cress-cross the city, its impressive architecture and more than 1,500 bridges. Amsterdam’s medieval centre is known for its traditional architecture, canals, shopping, and many coffee shops. The Red Light District is also a part of the Old Centre. There is something for every traveller's taste here.
- Nuremberg: Nuremberg is Bavaria's second largest city after Munich. When you say “Nuremberg”, people usually imagine gingerbread, toys, Christmas, or the Reich Party Rally Grounds. But the old town is much more than that: gothic churches, splendid patricians' houses and romantic corners. An atmosphere of lively co-existence between medieval and modern, between the past and the present, prevails in Nuremberg.
