While it's not quite the same experience, my wife and I have taken a couple of river cruises in Europe. Travel by boat is the best way to tour, IMO.

In September we took a cruise on the Main in Germany, and a bit of the Rhine. I had no idea the wines of the region (Franconia) were so good. I've been looking for them here in the US, but no luck.

The great thing about touring by boat is that the rivers tend to pass through the most historic parts of the region, and generally right through the center of the towns/cities. One evening we docked in the middle of downtown Frankfurt.
