Sunday, Sept 1 - We are staying near St Stephens Basilica and will arrive
around 4pm. I'm not sure what we can accomplish this day.
Depends on the age of the kids. At the least you can walk down the pedestrian area in front of the Basilica to the river than ride the 2 tram along the river front. This gives you a pretty good overview of the city. Beautiful views too. Maybe stop at the Corso and have a bite to eat. When the sun goes down the view across the river is pretty spectacular.
- Monday, September 2: stle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church, Gellert
That's good for a half day. The first half could be the Great Synagogue and the Jewish district, then the tram to the Market Hall and then tram across the river to Buda and on to the funicular to the Castle Hill. Three will be a lot to see and do, but the Museums will be closed (Monday). Walk down, walk across the Chain Bridge and the Basilica is an interesting 10 minute walk from the Pest end of the Bridge.
Tuesday, September 3 - Parliament grounds, Heroes Square, City Park.
Walk to the Parliament and take the morning tour. Buy tickets on line asap. Then walk down to the Shoes Memorial before Walking Falk Miska utca to 4/6 Tram. It passes the Nyugati Train Station (designed by Effiel), The second stop will be the Oktogon where you can take the M1 Metro to Hero's Squarfe and the Park. Walkk back down Andrassy ut for the architecture and the beautiful tree lined Blvd.
Wednesday, September 4 - Margaret Island - our kids want to do the pools/baths/slides
The bath house in City Park would provide more cultural insight. Second half of the day visit Vaci utca.
Thursday, September 5 - Leave early. Call City Taxi the night before for the ride to the airport if that is where you are going.
