Continuing the trend of the royal treatment, you have the option to spend some time at the Imperial Apartments. The Imperial Apartments were the residence of the Habsburgs for over 600 years and the center of the Holy Roman Empire. This was considered the winter residence of the imperial family. If you have a winter palace, you most likely would have a summer home too. Here, you can have a chance to experience your second home, the Schonbrunn Palace. During the 18th century and onwards, the court spent the summer here. Make your way to the Belvedere Palace, another place that intends to show you the life of the royals, with all its fancy upholstery and furniture. Considered a Baroque Palace, you will find it hard to take your eyes off the extravagant design. Find yourself on the way to St. Stephens Cathedral, or more commonly known as Stephandsdom. Its incredible Romanesque and Gothic construction with its spires reaching for the sky will be awe-inspiring.
By now you will probably want to stop for lunch. Your guide will be happy to recommend a wonderful restaurant. Or you might consider a stroll through Naschmarkt, Vienna's oldest market, filled with many food stalls, restaurants, exotic produce and other delightful goodies. The Naschmarkt is also a great place to people watch, as it is always a popular place for both locals and visitors.
Now that you have had the opportunity to see some wonderful sites in Vienna, you will feel delighted to know that you have had a day well spent.
How you spend your day is completely up to you! Your guide will be happy to help you decide the best itinerary.
