Day 1: Vienna
FEATURED EXCURSION: Vienna Discovery
Discover why Vienna is considered one of the most livable cities in the world on today’s walking tour. Stroll along the famous Ringstrasse and pass by the Stock Exchange and neo-Gothic Votive Church. Votive Church was commissioned by Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian as a token of his appreciation to God for saving the life of his brother, Emperor Franz Joseph, during an assassination attempt. Across from the church, you’ll see Palais Ephrussi, the palatial residence of the prominent Ephrussi family before it was seized by the Nazis in 1938. Follow your guide through the gorgeous courtyard of a former monastery to Palais Kinsky as you make your way to the baroque Winter Palace of Prince Eugene. Cross the city’s oldest pedestrian area, Kärntner Straße, to today’s highlight, the House of Music, with its gorgeously decorated rooms dedicated to Mozart, Strauss, Beethoven, and other renowned composers.
