Vienna— 3 nights
City of Dreams
The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Belvedere Palace and Schonbrunner Gardens. Step off the beaten path and head to Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof) and Parliament Building. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Stephen's Cathedral, meet the residents at Haus des Meeres - Aqua Terra Zoo, learn about all things military at Museum of Military History, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Schönbrunn Zoo.
