Good morning, Vienna. This magnificent city was home to a vast number of classical composers over the centuries - and for good reason. As you wander, the streets ooze opulence and charm at every turn. Kick the day off with an introductory city tour to get your bearings and learn about the city’s history, then you’re free to make your own discoveries. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend a concert this evening in one of the city’s impressive palaces. Relax and enjoy the uplifting melodies of Strauss or Mozart.

Situated on an impossibly beautiful curve on the Danube, Dürnstein may well be the town that has it all. Charming buildings. A ruined hilltop castle. Stunning surrounding scenery. What’s more, it has a fascinating history: its grand castle walls once imprisoned Richard I of England - Richard the Lionheart.
