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.
Vienna is known for historic sites, museums, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Schonbrunn Palace, don't miss a visit to St. Stephen's Cathedral, browse the eclectic array of goods at Vienna Naschmarkt, and examine the collection at Hofburg.

Rome of the North

Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Tue): admire the striking features of Mirabell Palace, contemplate the long history of Salzburger Altstadt, admire the landmark architecture of Salzburg Cathedral, then browse the exhibits of Fortress Hohensalzburg, and finally make a trip to Mozartplatz.

Plan my Salzburg trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
