Return To Vienna

Wednesday we returned to one of our favorite cities: Vienna. The morning tour, with a local guide stressed the history of the city. Our coach drove around the Ringstrasse past famed buildings like the State Opera house and wound up at the Albertina Square. Then our group walked to St. Stephen's Cathedral and also toured the interior of the National Library at the Hofburg Palace, residence of the Hapsburgs. Later, Dan gave a guided tour of the Kunst Historiches museum of art where we saw treasures by Raphael, Tintoretto, Titian, Rubens, Brueghel, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and many others. Our group of six friends then took the subway back to our ship docked on the Danube. - Dan
