Marco Polo Vienna Guide

Marco Polo ViennaIt’s summer and it’s been a hot one. Europe, and indeed much of the globe, has sizzled in high temperatures, and those pavements tire the traveller on city breaks. But Marco Polo Vienna Guide assists with advice and travel support.

This Marco Polo Vienna pocket-sized guide and don’t-leave-home-without-it travel companion is full of indispensable Insider Tips that will cut out a lot of wasted pavement-pounding when the visitor just wants to cram in as much as possible on their trip. The book will point you in the direction of good-value hotels, and will let you know what to do on a limited budget. There are great suggestions for where to take the kids to keep them entertained, too!

Iconic café culture

Vienna is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities and there is plenty to see and do. It has iconic café culture, so find a well-appointed one and order a coffee and a slice of cake, and people-watch for a while. The Marco Polo Vienna Guide offers a list of good places to enjoy some mid-morning treats. St. Stephen’s Cathedral is a must-visit. Go to a musical evening. Stroll around parks and pleasure gardens. Retail therapy comes in all guises here, from fashion to art.

There is a useful German phrase list offering the essential words and phrases needed to make any traveller feel a bit confident. OK, so you might not be embarking on complex philosophical debates, but you will at least be able to order an apple strudel and be polite while you are doing it.

The Touring App is well worth investigating. It’s new for 2018: you can download any of the Discovery Tours to your smartphone, complete with the detailed route description and map exactly as featured in the guide, free of charge. The maps can be used offline, too, so no roaming charges. The perfect navigational tool with distance indicators and landmarks highlighting the correct direction to travel in, as well as GPS coordinates along the way. I have used this a couple of times and it really does enhance a short break!
