2016 River Cruise - Day 4


A full day in Vienna.  We docked in Vienna in the morning, did a quick bus tour, then took the tour bus downtown to meet up with our local tour guides. Many of the folks on our boat took the tour to Schoenbrunn Palace but we had visited there before so we took the tour of the Sisi Museum at the Hofburg Imperial Palace instead.  After the Hofburg tour, we walked down to the Belvedere Palace and toured the art gallery there.  We later rendevouzed with our tour bus, went back to the boat for a bit, then went back downtown for a gala dinner at the Pallavicini Palace.  Wow!
