Yesterday I took a USO bus tour to Wurzburg. It is the center of Franconian wine and home to the Residence Palace which was the former residence of the Prince Bishops. Pictures taking wasn't allowed inside the Palace but the frescoes were breathtaking reminding me of the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the Mirror Cabinet room reminded me of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles.
After the tour of the Palace, we walked around the city exploring a few of the many churches. A little bit was free time was given, so I grab a quick bite to eat at Schonborn which was an Italian restaurant. I had Spinach lasagna which was very yummy.
After lunch we met at a local winery for a cellar tour and tasting of local Franconian wines which is one of the largest wine estates in Germany. We tasted a total of 6 wines and had a meat and cheese plate.I found two that I enjoy.
