This is a whirlwind tour to help you get an overview of Prague.

After the walking tour, we will stop for lunch and have free time. We will meet up later for the Christmas Market!

The Jewish quarter is soaked in history. We will start early and visit the synagog, museum, and graveyard. I will give you the history and what to expect the morning of.

St. Vitus Cathedral is absolutely stunning. Build in 930 with the current construction 1033 this Cathedral will stick with you for years. From here we will go to the Funicular. This is so much fun. It is a gondola type of transportation that moves up the hillside slowly to a park that overlooks Prague. It’s a postcard view. We will then stroll down to Strahov Monastery where we will sip Ale from the monastery that started it all. We will take a tour of the inside of the Monastery and peek inside the amazing golden library! Afternoon free time. We will meet up for MORE CHRISTMAS MARKET! Dinner out together.
