A group of lucky Australian travel agents recently sampled one of APT’s most sought after Royal Invitations – an exclusive classical concert at the City Palace in Vienna, owned by the princely family of Liechtenstein.
Widely regarded as one of the city’s most exquisite buildings, the group visited the palace as part of an unforgettable week sailing aboard the award-winning luxury river cruise operator’s MS AmaVerde between Budapest and Nuremberg.
On arrival at the palace the guests were treated to a cocktail reception, before enjoying an evening of culture and captivating entertainment.
Other highlights of the special 8-day itinerary cruise included the chance to journey aboard the Majestic Imperator train between Passau and Linz, also an exclusive APT Royal Invitation.
Taking in the breathtaking scenery of Austria’s famous Salzkammergut region, the group of travel agents enjoyed morning tea aboard the train before disembarking in Salzburg for a tour, which touched on some of the sights from the classic ‘Sound of Music’ and the chance to explore Mirabell Gardens. They then reboarded, enjoying drinks, canapés and music en route to Linz, where they rejoined their river cruise.
The agents also sampled APT’s all inclusive lifestyle onboard their luxury river cruise ship; dining at the Chef’s Table Restaurant, enjoying complimentary beverages and relaxing in their Twin Balcony suites, all of which featured butler services and complimentary Wi-Fi.
