Hi there! You are reading these lines because you wish to visit and explore Vienna soon :) I LOVE THE WAY YOU THINK!!! My family and friends call me Mario.

Whether you're staying a week or just one day, there are plenty of reasons to fall in love with this town. You don't believe me? Be my guest, take a tour and get your feet wet! It is free! See you soon! Your Mario
Welcome to Vienna, the cultural capital of Central Europe and home to almost two Million lucky inhabitants.
On this free walk downtown tour from a corner to the corner of the former Roman military camp Vindobona, the cradle of Vienna, we'll sail through more than 2,000 years of the city's history. Unfortunately, there is not much left to see from Roman times. This is because generations that followed the Romans recycled almost every stone for their buildings. However, a careful observer will not miss the traces of four centuries of Roman life in Vienna.
Our tour starts at the Schwedenplatz, a vivid traffic junction of the city center and, therefore, a meeting point for tourists and locals. Next, we'll walk through the Bermuda Triangle – Vienna's famous Party Mile that includes the town's oldest church and oldest synagogue.
Then we'll go to Hoher Markt – one of the oldest squares and therefore historical city center of trade and power as well as life and death with famous Ankeruhr (a musical clock), Römermuseum (Roman Museum) and fountain with the motif of the Marriage of the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. Judenplatz – the center of one of the most prosperous Middle-Age Jewish communities in Europe with the Holocaust Memorial, Jewish Museum, and Lessing statue is our next goal.
Then follows Am Hof – where the first Duke of Austria Heinrich II., and his wife Theodora, a byzantine princess, built the palace with a knight's tournament court.
Finally, after a little bit more than two hours, our walking tour ends at Stephanplatz, the very center of the city.
I'm looking forward to walking and talking with you!
You will find me in a small Park across from McDonald's (Rotenturmstraße 29/Franz-Josefs-Kai 25, 1010 Wien) with a white umbrella.Take the underground to Schwedenplatz station (on the red U1 and green U4 lines). Exit Rotenturmstraße.
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
