Vienna—known as “the City of Music”—has been the residence of more famous composers than any other city. Music is in the air, and we’re sure you’ll dance your way through Vienna. Why? Because Monograms has handled the details of your Vienna holiday and made it easy for you to travel here. On this 4-day holiday, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, and daily breakfast. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is on hand throughout your holiday to offer guidance, insights,—in essence, a "friend in the city," there to make sure your holiday is all you want it to be.
Your holiday begins when you arrive in Vienna. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and give you materials to familiarise you with the city and to help personalise your holiday. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. You'll hear the inside stories and little-known secrets around the famous landmarks, such as the National Theater, State Opera House, Parliament, and the Strauss Monument. The highlight of your sightseeing features Schönbrunn Palace, the summer residence of the Habsburg family. You'll stand in awe as you gaze at the luxury and opulence throughout the palace, which is often compared to the Palace of Versailles in France.
You’ll also have a full day to explore Vienna on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to visit one of the many museums; ride the giant Ferris wheel at Prater park, a symbol of Vienna; visit the Hofburg Treasury to see the Habsburg’s collection of jewels and crowns; visit the gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral; or enjoy a Mozart or Strauss concert. You may want to do as the Viennese do by enjoying the atmosphere of a local coffeehouse. Be sure to ask your Local Host for suggestions.
And did we mention your inside visit to Schönbrunn Palace includes VIP access? This means you get to skip the line. After all, why wait in line with all the other tourists when you can be inside one of the world's most beautiful palaces? Between the sightseeing we've included, the guides we've arranged, the hotel we’ve booked, and the breakfasts we've included, all you have to do is get ready for a wonderful holiday.
