Everything seems big in Vienna - its buildings, the wide boulevards, its palaces and its art collection. But it has a cozy feel that warms up to you soon after you arrive. Within the old city once surrounded by walls, are many testaments to the power this capital once held.
At the Schonbrunn Palace, see how the family of Maria Theresa, Archduchess of Austria and Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, lived. She had sixteen children and they were each given an apartment at the palace. I particularly liked the formal gardens, so colorful even in late October.
