A Medieval Fortress That's a Tale of Two Cities

Our tour destination today is Nuremberg, a city that served a key role in the days of the Holy Roman Empire, as well as the second World War. Vantage gave us the option of two tours -- one that focuses on its medieval history, and another on its role in the war, including the Nuremberg trials.
Pam and I opt for the former, which includes a visit to the Nuremberg Castle and free time to explore the historic old town, a marketplace of shops, restaurants and Germany's largest Christmas market.
