My favourite place: Vienna, Austria
The latest in our historical holiday series sees Nigel Jones explore the rich artistic and intellectual history of the Austrian capital
I view Vienna not through a visitor’s eyes, but those of a former resident. I spent four years there as a journalist in the 1990s, have a Viennese son, and often revisit the city. Therefore, if not exactly my favourite place, I certainly know Vienna well enough to pronounce it near the top of European cities for its quality of life, its culture and, of course, its history!
