You'll never fall into tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

City of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and baroque architecture, Vienna became a showplace city under the Hapsburgs--and unlike many European capitals, managed to retain its landmarks through two world wars. Frommer's offers detailed, complete coverage of all the highlights. Rely on us for in-depth reviews of attractions and museums, the best accommodations for every taste and budget, the lowdown on the dining and cafe scene, a complete shopper's guide, the best of the performing arts, and more--including side trips to nearby Danube River towns and Lake Neusiedl resorts.

If you're combining your visit to Vienna with a trip to Prague or Budapest (both are just a short train ride away), check out some of Frommer's other helpful guides for your trip, such as Frommer's Prague & the Best of the Czech Republic and Frommer's Budapest & the Best of Hungary.

About the author (2009)

Darwin Porter, an entertainment columnist for The Miami Herald, once welcomed Ronald Reagan during his promotion of Storm Warning (1951), a "golden age" film co-starring Ginger Rogers and Doris Day. Reagan was unofficially accompanied on that tour by a then-unknown starlet, Marilyn Monroe. Since then, Porter, a resident of New York City, has followed in minute detail Ronald's bizarre segue from the entertainment industry to the White House, and the ins and outs of his amorous links to Jane Wyman, Nancy Davis, and a bevy of other starlets. Over the decades, Porter, one of America's most prolific celebrity biographers, in league with former New York Times reporter Danforth Prince, has made Reagan-watching into something of an art form.
