We depart this morning for a guided tour of Vienna. Our tour includes views of the lavish terraced gardens of Prince Eugene’s Belvedere Palace, the State Opera House, the Hofburg residence of Emperor Franz Joseph, and the Parliament Buildings. We finish at St Stephen’s Cathedral after which you are free to explore the delights of this fascinating and historic city at leisure. An undoubted part of the city’s ‘soul’, is its café culture and we would thoroughly recommend allowing time to sit back with a coffee, apple strudel and vanilla custard and watch the world go by.

Enjoy a morning at leisure. This afternoon we visit the Rathausplatz where the Vienna Magic of Advent Christmas market is located. Here you can browse at your own pace the 150 or so stalls offering gifts, decorations, sweets and warming drinks. The trees of the surrounding City Hall Park are festively decorated and radiate in a sea of lights. This evening you can choose an optional excursion to see a performance of Strauss and Mozart.

Inside the Palace, headsets with English-speaking commentary will be provided so you can progress at your own pace through the state rooms which are decorated in the Rococo style of the 18th century and filled with frescoes, crystal chandeliers, priceless tapestries and furniture. We return to our hotel this afternoon for free time.
