Day 8 – The history and music of Vienna
After a calm night of cruising, we arrive into glorious Vienna,
for a comprehensive sightseeing tour. This is a chance to relish in
Austria's Imperial heritage, one full of tradition and rich in
architectural, artistic and musical heritage. You'll see many of
Vienna's finest ornate buildings, including the impressive Hofburg
Palace. This vast complex of buildings demonstrates the awesome
power and wealth commanded by the Habsburgs. You'll also take in
the impressive Opera House, one of the leading opera venues in the
world, as well as the grand Parliament Building.
Tonight a real treat awaits us on board, where after dinner we
are joined by musicians from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for
an exclusive, private recital. Be whisked away by the music as you
immerse yourself in this singularly exceptional experience, as the
Vienna Philharmonic is one of the most popular and skilled
orchestras in the world. Overnight ship.
