What to see in the Belvedere Palace in Vienna

It has always been in the shadow of the other two great palaces in Vienna, but the Belvedere Palace is a baroque work of art that you should not miss and that is also complemented by truly spectacular gardens.

It is made up of two palaces, the upper one and the lower one, although the really interesting one is the upper one and inside (both of them) we can see several museums and art collections that you will surely like.

Although they are not like the Hofburg Palace or the Schönbrunn Palace, they are still worth a visit.
