This was by far my favorite port! A spectacular city with a colorful history and amazing sites and restaurants. The only issue was our hotel room at the Hotel Bristol. We were two individuals (not a couple) and the room was set up with a double bed. When we asked them to move the bed into two, they simply separated the beds by 6 inches. It was a very tiny room and we could not both open our suitcases at the same time. They moved us to another room, but again it was not suited for two individuals. The couple we traveled with (with the same level of cabin and same price) had a huge room and were provided with chocolate treats each night. They moved us to yet another room, and although not as nice as our travel partners, was slightly better than the first two options.
The breakfast at Hotel Bristol was absolutely diving. The hotel location was perfect. We participated in the included excursions. Veronica, our tour guide and a life-long resident provided immense historical information and her own story and definitely kept our interest throughout the two days. Two of us took advantage of the Salzburg card to see additional sites in the city. Fabulous! I would love to visit there again. The Sound of Music tour was definitely a highlight. Veronica provided some real history of the Von Trapp family as well to contrast with the movie version.
