After breakfast, disembark in Dresden, nicknamed "Florence on the Elbe". Drive through the 19th-century residential area to the Dresden Castle complex; enter the Green Vault to see a comprehensive collection that houses what many claim is the world's largest collection of treasures, including priceless jewels and emeralds. Continue on foot to see Zwinger Palace, Semper Opera House, and the Frauenkirche (Cathedral of Our Lady) with its distinctive bell-shaped dome that was destroyed as a result of a World War II bombing raid. Later, it was rebuilt. Alternatively, enjoy more of Dresden on our optional tour with visits to Dresden's Baroque castles, sweeping wine estate, and opulent palace—once home to royal and lavish banquets. Dinner is served onboard your ship; afterward, feel free to enjoy Dresden's many charms and attractions as we remain docked until early morning. (B,L,D); Please note: If you're in Dresden on a Tuesday, The Green Vault is closed, therefore you will instead visit Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Picture Gallery) to view some of the world's great masterpieces, including works by Raphael, Vermeer, Rubens, and Rembrandt.,
