What to Expect
Board your climate-controlled coach in Vienna, and start your journey through the city. As you gaze out of the window, listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the striking architecture of the Ringstrasse boulevard. Admire the neoclassical facades of the Austrian Parliament before the commanding sight of Hofburg Palace—the birthplace of Marie Antoinette—captures your attention. Leaving your transport behind, step out on foot to see Schönbrunn Palace. Use your skip-the-line ticket to avoid the often-long general entry line and then see the sights and discover the history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site on a guided tour.
