Itinerary

Fri 19 Jun

Afternoon arrival in Vienna and transfer to the elegant 5-star Hotel Bristol, one of the leading hotels in Vienna and just a few steps away from the Staatsoper. Welcome dinner that evening in the hotel restaurant.

Sat 20 Jun

Join your guide this morning for a walking tour of the city “in the footsteps of Vienna’s famous musicians”. Visits include the magnificent St Stephen’s Cathedral in which Haydn sang as a choirboy, Mozarthaus (the composer's only surviving home in Vienna) and the Wiener Staatsoper where countless composers, conductors and singers have left their mark. The tour ends with lunch in a local restaurant. The afternoon is at leisure before walking the short distance to the theatre for that evening’s opera performance.

Sun 21 Jun

Half-day excursion to Schönbrunn Palace and a guided tour of this beautiful imperial residence. One of the most important architectural, cultural and historic monuments in Austria, its history and rich decor reflect the changing tastes, interests and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs. Lunch and the afternoon are at leisure before returning to the Staatsoper for the second Verdi opera of this tour.

Mon 22 Jun

Spend the morning as you wish before transferring to the airport for the afternoon flight home.
