In Vienna, learn about the Habsburg Empire with guided sightseeing, and see the Imperial Palace complex, the Opera House, and stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Explore Krems on a guided tour of a town seemingly untouched by the modern world. Cruise through the Wachau Valley—home of charming villages and Austrian wines from its beautiful vineyards. Visit Ybbs with a guided tour of its romantic old town. Visit the magnificent 9th-century St. Florian Monastery, still home to Augustine Monks, or take a sobering tour of Mauthausen Concentration Camp—one of the largest and most brutal Nazi camps of WWII.
