Meet your guide in the afternoon in front of the Albertina Museum. Then hop on public transportation for the short ride to Schonbrunn Palace. Once you arrive, proceed directly inside, past the often-long entry lines, and start exploring on a guided tour. First, enjoy a short introduction of the gardens and then head inside the palace to hear stories of the palace's former residents and walk through the historic staterooms and the residential suite of rooms occupied by Emperor Franz Josef and his wife Elisabeth. Listen to your guide's in-depth commentary on the palace's history and the politics that unfolded here. After the tour, proceed to explore on your own; this combination of guided and free-time portions make this tour suitable for all types of travelers. Walk through the gardens, stop in the cafe for a snack, or take in the strudel show, which details how Viennese apple strudel is made. When you're done exploring, head back to central Vienna on your own.
