Superb experience with the Vienna Pass. Everything is simple, buses every hour, stops visible and easy to take. A really appreciable quality of service, a map and a small book are provided to consult all the places included in the PASS. I highly recommend.

A week is not enough to go around and listen to everything with an audio guide. Awesome museum. Some of the best experiences in Vienna
