Slow down,
you crazy child. As Billy Joel rightly said, Vienna waits for you. There are
plenty of ways to save here beyond the moderate hotel rates. A round-trip train
ticket from the airport to the city is only $20, a one-day travel card is less
than $8, and standing-room-only tickets to the State Opera are sometimes
available for under $5.

  • Average 2010 hotel rate: $155
    (up 2 percent)
  • Price of beer (half-liter):
    $3.90–$4.55
  • Two-mile
    taxi ride: $9.09
  • State
    Department per diem: $349 (down 9 percent)
