Although beer and sausages are still very much a specialty in the Czech Republic, the stereotype of stodgy, heavy food has changed. Michelin recognise 24 restaurants in Prague, with two, Field and La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise having one star.

Fresh, locally grown produce is at the heart of Czech cuisine, some traditional and many with a modern twist. Below is a sample of a culinary program that includes a spectacular private dinner, cooked for you by a young Chef with extraordinary talent.

ITINERARY

PRICING FROM

For two (2) guests traveling together April 1 – October 31: From $4,700  Cost per person double occupancy and excludes airfare.

Day 1
Prague | Prague, Czech Republic

Arrival into Prague, where you will be met by your driver for your transfer to your hotel in the center of the city and in the heart of the historic district. Perhaps more than any other city in Europe, Prague has kept its pre-modern charm. Spared the destruction of the Second World War, the ancient structures of the city still exist in their original state. Prague is a walking city as it was designed over many centuries for the pedestrian and the horse. The inner city lacks major avenues as found in Paris or Rome, giving the city its unique character.

Day 2
Prague | Private Chef Prague

Today your guide will meet you in your hotel lobby and will take you through Prague’s storybook Old Town on a walking tour. You’ll want to see the beautiful expanse of the Charles Bridge but it’s a more magical experience to visit it very late or very early on your own, when it’s free of the souvenir stands and tourists. Your guide will give you a quick lesson of Prague’s history, evident in every building and small passageway of this 800-year-old city. Be sure not to miss the fairytale-like Old Town Hall Tower (1364) that stands above Old Town Square; you can even go to the top of the tower for a splendid view over the district. Finally, you will enter New Town—which is new because it was only founded in 1348! Here you can visit Wenceslas Square, were over the many centuries demonstrations of civil discontent have taken place. At the top of the square you will see the imposing building of the National Museum and the Monument to St. Wenceslas, the patron of the Czech lands, by sculptor Josef Myslbek. As you stroll, our guide will point out some of the interesting sculptures in Prague. There are several thought provoking and somewhat controversial sculptures around the city. You get little slices of Czech history and, in some cases, some interesting political commentary, too!

Day 3
Prague | Strahov Monastery - Prague, Czech Republic

This morning your guide and driver at will meet you for an overview drive of some of Prague’s top sites. Drive by the famous Dancing House and through the historical area of Vysehrad, with its 10th-century fort. You will also observe modern local Czech life with a drive through the bustling residential area of Vinohrady, once covered by vineyards. You will then head towards the Castle District and Hradčany.

Exeter International Extraordinary Experience
Today you have a VIP visit to the Strahov Monastery. Here, you will be invited into the two main halls of the library: The Philosophical Hall and the Theological Hall. These two halls are always viewed by the public through the narrow doorways at the end of each room, but you will be allowed to enter the rooms to walk alone among the ancient books and artifacts.

Included today will also be a visit to the Prague Castle complex. This castle, designed with courtyards inside of courtyards, is a fascinating view into the lives of the Czech monarchy. You might want to step into the towering and wonderfully Neo-Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral inside the complex.

We love a visit to the Lobkowicz Palace to view The Princely Collection. This is a special treat, as the audio guide that you will use is recorded by Mr. William Lobkowicz himself. After the confiscation by the Nazis and later, the Communists, the palace has been returned to the Lobkowicz family, one of the most powerful Czech aristocratic families whose history goes all the way back to the 14th century. The tour will give you an insight into their life and their collection of paintings, decorative art, porcelain sets, music scores (one with Mozart’s own handwritten notes), arms, and armors. Don’t miss the original score of Beethoven’s Eroica!

Your day will end in the Malá Strana or Little Quarter, which is best known for the Wallenstein Palace and Church of St. Nicholas. Also, it is here in the Malá Strana that you will find many charming restaurants and unique shops full of Bohemian glass and the marionettes that are so famous in Prague.

Day 4
Mikulov | Mikulov, Czech Republic

This morning meet your driver and guide in the hotel lobby for a trip to Mikulov. Mikulov is a picturesque little town in the Southern Moravian region which is known for its wine. The town itself is full of charming winding streets with pretty Renaissance and Baroque houses. West of the Mikulov Castle is the Jewish Quarter, once the seat of the Moravian Chief Rabbi. The thriving community used to have a wellknown yeshiva, many synagogues and a large graveyard where many of the famous rabbis are buried.

Exeter International Extraordinary Experience
After a bit of time to explore the town, head to a small family-run winery just outside of Mikulov where you will learn about wine production in this region and enjoy a selection of their best wines along with homemade
accompaniments.

As time allows, and if you want to do some exploring, you might want to drive towards Vatice and Lednice, a beautiful UNESCO-listed complex that features two magnificent chateaus and several artificial ruins, temples, arches and colonnades. The two chateaus are linked by a 7-kilometer avenue of lime trees. Valtice Castle also offers wine tasting of a selection of Moravian wines.
