Day 1 VIENNA :
Arrival at Vienna Airport .
Vienna is a unique blend of the historic and the modern: so full of tradition that it can be read on the face of the city, but with a forward-looking approach that will surprise the visitor. Vienna 's role as the seat of the Habsburg Empire for centuries can be seen in the wealth of architecture and in the city's artistic and musical heritage. Many of the most important composers performed behind Vienna 's Baroque facades. In addition to the city's Baroque splendour, there are excellent examples of Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture that also flourished here.
