Vienna – Relaxing in the Capital
Fly into Vienna and you will be greeted at the airport by a local guide. It’s a short guided transfer into the city and your hotel in the heart of the old town. Today has been left completely free, so you can relax after the flight and explore a bit of the city. Much of Vienna’s most impressive baroque architecture can be found around here, so take a stroll and absorb centuries of the Hapsburg Empire. Then get some more rest, because you’ll be in the saddle tomorrow morning.
