Located in lower Franconia lies Volkach. Enjoy a walking tour of this quaint town with many historic sites such as the Church of St. Bartholomew built 700 years ago, the Marktbrunnen fountain built in 1480, and the Maria im Weingarten, a pilgrimage church built in the 1300s. If you prefer a more active way to explore the town, join the guided bike tour. Alternatively, you can go on a full-day excursion to Rothenburg, Germany's best-preserved walled town located on the Romantic Road. Later in the day, and for those not going to Rothenburg, visit Würzburg, a beautiful city bursting with Baroque splendor. While here, you'll tour its crown jewel, the Baroque Residenz Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that features an opulent interior, including a grand fresco by Tiepolo. You also have a choice to go on a lovely bike tour from Würzburg to Kitzingen and through Franconia's wine country. For those not biking to Kitzingen, you'll cruise along the meandering Main River, and once in the town, enjoy a walking tour and listen to the enduring legends that make visiting Kitzingen extra fun, especially for Dracula followers.
