Day One

Fly to Vienna, then board our coach for the transfer to your hotel. Check in, then relax or head out to enjoy your first evening in the city.

Day Two

See the imposing buildings and squares of the Ringstrasse, the Hofburg Palace, and the celebrated coffee-houses of the ancient Innere Stadt on this morning's guided tour, then stop to wander Vienna's most famous Christmas markets - held in the idyllic lanes of Spittelberg and on triangular Freyung Square.

After time to explore, we'll continue to the Schonbrunn Palace. Browse the stalls of the Christkindlmarkt held here, in the great courtyard, before we round off the day with a warming tipple at a schnapps museum.

Day Three

Spend another day exploring Vienna's Christmas markets (some stores may be closed on Sundays), or join our optional full-day excursion and cross into Slovakia. Here we'll visit the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. Set beside the Danube, close to the borders of Austria and Hungary, it's a city where glorious palaces and churches proclaim a cosmopolitan history.

Day Four

Bid farewell to Vienna, and return to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Holiday was very enjoyable and the balance between guided excursions and free time was just right. Our tour guide did not meet us at the airport so we just had no information about Vienna on the journey to the hotel, where the hotel was, eg about how to walk into the city from the hotel. Optional trip on first day so again did not get to know the orientation of Vienna until the Sunday which was too late. Guide organising two groups so felt a bit negelected and did not get useful information until the Sunday which was a too late - eg Belvedere museum closed on Monday so no time to visit. Optional visit should have been on the Sunday and guide should have travelled with us to the hotel, not just a driver.
