Full description
Experience the best of Prague on this singular tour, visiting spots featured in "The New York Times'" beloved "36 Hours" travel column. Start at the medieval Convent of Saint Agnes of Bohemia, often overlooked by visitors to Prague, and admire the dramatic Gothic architecture. Channel your inner nun and have a go at writing a letter with an old quill like the nuns used to do in their printing workshop. Take a scenic stroll through narrow streets between the Old Town and the New Town and see Communist-era buildings showcasing Brutalist architecture.

Explore international influences on the local food scene at one of super chef Riccardo Lucque's trend-setting restaurants in central Prague. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour with a chef at La Bottega Linka, a popular bistro and deli that boasts a charcoal oven. Visit Republic Square and admire the grandeur of the Art Nouveau Municipal House and see the Black Madonna House, a jewel of Cubist architecture near the Powder Gate. Head around the corner to the Theater of the Estates, where Mozart conducted the world premiere of his opera "Don Giovanni" in 1787 and Milos Forman shot scenes from the Oscar-winning movie "Amadeus." 

Stop by Spejle Bistro, a hotspot that takes its name from the skewer used to serve almost everything on the menu. Sample bite-sized Czech classics and sip a glass of Moravian wine or Czech craft beer. Hop on a tram like the locals do and cross the River Vltava to the beautiful district of Lesser Town and its heart, Kampa Island. Here, take an exclusive tour of the Werich Villa, a former tannery dating back to the 18th century that was once the home of Czech actor and playwright Jan Werich and is now a museum and arts venue. Finish things off with a cup of coffee and a delicious slice of cake.
