... We drove by the front of the Von Trapp villa, as well as the Nonnberg Abbey where Maria was a nun. We drove through the incredibly beautiful Salzburg Lake District of which the panorama shots were shown at the beginning of the film.

The tour is about Salzburg and you get all the history and the sights of it, but you also get a lot of stops and sights which are special to the Sound of Music. On our bikes we had pictures from the movie and the guide would stop and point out each of the places where filming occurred.
