Vienna is mostly what I visualized - old, ornate, clean. Everything is historic, with marble sculptures and fountains everywhere. My favorite place was the ethnic market, where I drooled over olives, vegetables, baklava, and falafel. I even saw sarongs and handbags from India.
Public transportation here is excellent - bus, tram, train, subway. Thus you have multiple travel options wherever you go. If we miss a bus, we can walk to the nearby tram stop and ride that instead. We've also encountered plenty of American tourists, mostly high school and college groups on spring break. It's funny to hear American accents - I notice them more in the midst of all the German I don't understand at all.
