Vienna is a strikingly beautiful city, By merely glancing at the many palaces and stately homes around the town it is clear that the city’s imperial history has been profoundly influential in its development.

Your tour will begin at the Ringstrasse; a 5.3km boulevard commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph, and home to some of Austria’s most important sites. The Vienna Rathaus, a neo-Gothic city hall built in 1883, is one of the best. The Hofburg Imperial Palace is another, and was the home of the Habsburg dynasty between the 13th to the 20th Century. 

Baroque Splendor

Here you will also learn about Sigmund Freud’s life and work at his very own house that is now a museum. Along the way you will have the chance to visit some of Vienna's famous coffee houses, which since they were initially opened by an Armenian spy in the 17th century, have been a vital part of the city's legacy.
