Soak up a little Viennese culture for the soul
A wander around the Austrian capital of Vienna just somehow feels exactly the way you always thought it should... The buildings are, generally, stately architectural works of art, the streets wide and majestic, the indigenous folk friendly and helpful and the transport system, especially the trams, completely facilitative in your explorational endeavours.
