Lista Aperta offers you a trip to Europe’s longest-running imperial capital. You will have the opportunity to visit Vienna for five days and four nights, from Wednesday 20 April to Sunday 24 April, and immerse yourself in the life of the city.
Departure is scheduled for Wednesday morning from Milan’s Malpensa airport (to be reached independently). This will give us plenty of time to deposit our luggage at the Jo&Joe hostel ten minutes from the center, which we will reach in 30 minutes by train, and rest up for an exciting afternoon at Schonbrunn Palace, the famous imperial palace.
On Thursday morning there will be a visit to Belvedere Castle, a magnificent Baroque castle and art museum. The afternoon, after a stop at Karlskirche, will be dedicated to a dip in the Viennese nature of the Prater, the beautiful park in the city center, where the historic Ferris wheel is located. Travel will be on foot and by metro, given the hostel’s strategic location.
On Friday, we’ll take a step back into the city’s artistic traditions and visit the Albertina Museum, especially the collection from Monet to Picasso. After lunch, we’ll take in more of Austria’s wonderful architecture, visiting St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Stephansdom, and Europe’s most colorful district, Hundertwasser, which can be reached by metro. The day ends on a high note with a boat ride on the Danube, illuminated by the lights of Vienna.
Saturday will be devoted to Secessionist art, from the Secession Palace, where some of Klimt’s most famous works are housed, to the Otto Wagner Metro, a former underground station. There will then be time in the afternoon to savour the city at your leisure and explore Vienna’s historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and perhaps refresh yourself in a classic Viennese café with a well-deserved Sacher.
On Sunday morning, very early, we will pack our bags and leave for Milan by train from Vienna airport.
The registration fee is €180 and does not include meals.
