Make sure to also capture photos of Nonnberg Abbey, the majestic abbey where Maria Augusta Kutschera -- whose life story The Sound of Music was based on -- was a postulant. On your way back to your hotel, pass the Mozart Residence (Mozart Wohnhaus), where the legendary composer wrote many of his masterpieces.

Feel free to ask your guide to adjust this itinerary to suit your preferences. At the conclusion of your 2-hour private tour of Salzburg, you'll have seen many of the city's don't-miss sights and have a better idea of where you'd like to spend more time.
