About the tour

137 years ago Vienna opened the public university, our starting point for a pleasant stroll along the Ringstrasse. The wide avenue that circles around the historic center of the city, reminds us where the medieval defensive wall of the city once stood; Not coincidentally, it's where the main tourist attractions are today. It is well-known for its history and its different architectural styles. The City Hall, the National Theater, the Twin Museums, the view of the entrance to the Imperial Palace and gardens are some of the attractions you can't miss. It will be a pleasure to take you for this virtual walk on one of the most beautiful and monumental avenues in Europe!

Francis

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Francis moved to Austria when he was still a child, but the warm and humorous Brazilian way is one of his most remarkable features. Having Vienna as his biggest passion, he became a licensed guide in 2020; always smiling and willing to present the curiosities and stories of the city through exciting tours. With 25 years of experience in the tourism industry, he has also worked in several places all over the world, such as Los Angeles, Manila, Mexico City, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro.

Francis has been guiding since Jan 2021
