Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Budapest, Hungary

Arrive in Budapest, a city occupying both sides of the Danube and founded when right-bank Buda joined left-bank Pest in 1873. Budapest’s broad avenues and turn-of-the-century architecture have earned it the name “Paris of Eastern Europe.” A lively city, Budapest has long been a cultural mecca for writers, artists and musicians. Transfer by private car to your hotel; the balance of the day is at leisure.
