D-1: Arrival in Budapest

Welcome by our guide at Budapest airport. Transfer to hotel.

D-2: Budapest


Departure for a tour of Buda: the Royal Palace, visit to Mathias Church, in pure Gothic style. Although built between 1255 and 1269 and named Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, tradition has given it the name of King Mathias Corvin, who had his 2 weddings celebrated here, and undertook to enlarge it between 1458 and 1470.

Among its many treasures, reliquaries and sacerdotal vestments, it houses a historical curiosity: a piece of the wedding veil of Empress Elisabeth, or Sissi, who was crowned Queen of Hungary here. Visit the Fishermen's Bastion overlooking the river. Climb Mount Gellért, offering superb views of the city and the Danube. Lunch in a restaurant.                                             

Afternoon guided tour of Pest, a lively shopping district. Seen from the opposite bank of the river, the famous Parliament, this impressive edifice is reminiscent of the Houses of Parliament in London. Begun in 1882, it took over 20 years to build. The result lives up to its ambitions: with 10 inner courtyards and almost 700 rooms, including the magnificent "Dome", everything here is gigantic. Blending elements of Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic and Oriental styles, the ensemble seems inhabited by the memory of Europe's finest monuments, of which it is in a way the architectural synthesis. In this respect, it is the perfect demonstration of the eclecticism that gives the Hungarian capital its particular charm.

Discover Heroes' Square, adorned with statues of Hungary's founders, and St. Stephen's Basilica.

Departure for the gypsy evening with music and dance at the tipical restaurant "czarda", dinner.
