City Breaks: Travel to Vienna

vienna city

Vienna is well known as a musical and cultural paradise and with great reason. It is the home of classical music and has some of the finest arts and architecture the world has to offer.

Vienna has a whole host of top rate attractions and is one of the finest examples of the decadence of the old eastern Europe still remaining, a real cultural treasure store. Still cheap compared to many of its neighboring countries flights run from as little as £60 each way and villas can be snapped up from around £40 per night so grab some travel insurance and get going.
