Long Description: 
For centuries the Rhine has been a natural border and the main route for trade, people and ideas. We start in the ancient Roman city of Trier and travel up the Mosel River visiting vineyards and ancient castles. We'll take a scenic cruise down the Rhine for a sailor's eye view of famous Rhine castles and the lovely but dangerous Lorelei. In Koblenz we'll see where Julius Cesar destroyed two Germanic tribes but was never able to conquer Germany, and just down stream we'll see where American troops first crossed the Rhine during World War II at the bridge at Remagen. Our trip concludes in the city of Cologne where we'll visit the modern art museum and sample Kolsch, the local beer. Tip: Taking a cruise down the Rhine.
