VIENNA, AUSTRIA — Tuesday, December 1 & Wednesday, December 2

Vienna, “City of Waltzes”, personifies the arts. Immerse yourself in the visual arts, architecture and lifeways of this lively, lovely city. You can focus on its formal splendors, touring the Opera House and Imperial Palace, imagining Vienna in the days of Mozart and Schubert, Beethoven, and Strauss. If your preference is active adventure touring, you can do a bike tour to Klosternbeuburg Abbey, a medieval complex and Hapsburg residence rich with art treasures and the oldest vineyard in Austria. Visit Vienna’s twinkling Christmas markets, linger in a coffee house, embrace YOLO/FOMO and indulge in Viennese pastry. We will be moored overnight in Vienna, so you’ll have time to experience evening in the city in your own way.

Included Excursions
