London, Vienna, Prague - 3 Cities , No Car

Jump to last reply

My wife was able to get an extra day off, which allowed me to change our 'frequent flier miles' itinerary, which is good in so many ways.

1. Previous itinerary - 1 day London layover, 7 days Vienna - Prague - Vienna
New itinerary - 2 days London, 7 days Vienna-Prague

2. Previous Itinerary - frequent flier mile 'taxes and fees' $1160 (due to AA using partner BA)
New Itinerary - frequent flier miles 'taxes and fees' '$275' (flying AA and AB) + 300 Ryanair flight London to Vienna
3. Previous Itinerary - 8 hour layover in Dusseldorf on return
New Itinerary - 1 hour layover

Now that I know how to find good train fares, and how to do Cesky Krumolov, I've given up on using a car.

Questions:

2 Days in London.

I've been before, wife hasn't. I'll take her to see the usual tourist sites but looking for something new, to make it interesting for me. I don't think the docklands was there when I last went in 1993. Is that worth checking out? Any other ideas?

I'm trying to get hotels under US $100. A previous poster said I couldn't get a park bench for $80. I know that's not true because I can find some 4* hotels for $70 in Finchley, Stratford-Olympic Park, or Ealing Chiswich. Are those areas OK for 2 nights. Any recommendations.

3 Days Vienna
Vienna is still a blank slate for me, need to start researching. I hope I'll like it, as I mentioned in my previous post, Austro-Hungarian (Baroque?) palace architecture doesn't excite me for some reason. Any suggestions for other things to see, suggestions for hotels under $100? Interesting neighborhoods? Beautiful gardens? My friend says I can hide from the wild boars , LOL.

4 Days Prague
Prague same thing, I'll take a day trip to CK using shuttle as recommended. Any suggestions for hotels in Prague, things to do.

I'm into art museums, taking great photos, walking a lot to see the local life, and architecture, eating the local food, going to beautiful concert halls.

Thanks for in advance for the feedback.
