a city is better explored with gelato in one hand after a full belly.
note: we walked vienna on the two hottest days in june 2017. we were visiting friends who gave us the grandest tour. when we put the fork down, we were walking a few blocks to pick up the spoon.
here is day one itinerary:
take the train from the airport to the city center. super clean and easy.
lunch at figlmuller. known for amazing schnitzel. eat downstairs in the cellar.
gelato at castelletto. no sampling allowed. go with your gut. i'm certain you won't be disappointed.
demel for melange coffee and apple strudel. melange is the german word for the viennese blend. similar to a cappuccino. the desserts were on display. it's an art here. and you are expected to sit and enjoy. it's a good thing. we had literally finished up our gelato outside this place to throw away the remnants and step into this dessert place.
you keep eating, but allow me to pause and say we need more "sweet" places to meet up at rather than happy hour and meal time. places to sit down with chandeliers overhead and talk long over coffee and sweets without being rushed.Read More
