This is a trip of diverse cultural experiences for one discerning couple—beginning upon your arrival in Luxembourg, where you will spend three nights at Le Royal Hotel. Experience the culture of this remarkably beautiful and sophisticated country on a walking tour of Grund, Luxembourg’s oldest quarter and a labyrinth of history, followed by visits to the Place d’Armes, Constitution Square, the Corniche, Monument of the Millennium and the Grand Ducal Palace. Then, drive across the border to Trier, the oldest city in Germany, to discovering the largest and most well preserved Roman ruins north of the Alps, including the fortified gate Porta Nigra, Imperial Baths, Constantine Basilica and Karl Marx’s birthplace.
Your incredible jet-setting experience officially begins as soon as you board the Lakani Private Jet for the short flight to Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. Explore Bern’s picturesque historic city center and the iconic medieval tower with its famous mechanical clock. After your visit, re-board the jet and continue your journey to Belgrade, Serbia for three nights’ accommodations at Square Nine Hotel.
Spend the next few days exploring Serbia’s capital city, located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers. Visit Belgrade Fortress encircled within Kalemegdan Park and see its famous
17th-century Clock Tower and the historic Zindan Gate. You’ll also visit the beautifully decorated National Theatre and the House of Flowers, the resting place of former Yugoslavia president, Josip Broz Tito, before boarding his famous Blue Train for a nostalgic ride to Novi Sad, Serbia’s second largest city and home to the Petrovaradin Fortress. That evening, you’ll tour the White Palace and enjoy dinner in the Royal Dining Room.
Day seven takes you first to Varna, the seaside resort on Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast for a lunch featuring panoramic views of the stunning Varna Bay. After lunch, re-board your Lakani jet and fly to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia for your three-night stay at the Armenia Marriott Hotel. Here, you will tour the highlights of one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities—with a visit to the Matenadaran, home to one of the world’s richest collections of medieval manuscripts and books and enjoy an excursion to the Geghard Monastery, partially carved out of rock in the Azat River Gorge, followed by an a cappella concert with folk and spiritual songs at Garni Temple. Next, travel to Etchmiadzin to see the Cathedral, the mother church of the Armenian Apostolic Church—the first cathedral built in ancient Armenia and often considered the world’s oldest—before stepping inside the 7th-century Saint Hripsime Church, both are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
En route to Jordan, embark on an adventure in a 4×4 vehicle in Aqaba, where you will follow the path of “Lawrence of Arabia” through the lunar-like landscape of Wadi Rum. Spot exquisite Nabataean rock carvings in the Khaz’ali Canyon and marvel at the awe-inspiring views of the desert from Lawrence’s Spring.
Later in the day, continue to Petra, known as the Rose City, where you will spend two nights at the Mövenpick Resort Petra. Spend some time walking through the Siq, a narrow chasm in the bedrock, and admire the elaborate Treasury and the Nabataean rock-cut buildings with Hellenistic facades. If you are feeling adventurous, join your guide for the 1,000-step climb up to the Monastery. In the evening, enjoy a private celebration with local cuisine and a Bedouin folk show.
Your trip-of-a-lifetime will wrap up with three glorious days in Vienna, Austria at the Hotel Imperial. Enjoy a guided walking tour of the Old Town, passing by the renowned Opera House, Hofburg Palace and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Visit Schöenbrunn Palace and admire the unparalleled artistic quality during a private tour of the Bergl Rooms, among the most precious ensembles in the Palace. You will also attend an evening performance at the internationally renowned Vienna State Opera. On your last evening in Vienna, you’ll gather together with your newfound friends to reminisce and share photos at a farewell dinner and cocktail party.
