Two adults traveling to Budapest pre Viking River Cruise. This is our first time to Budapest. Staying at the New York Palace Marriott i( free nights with points/availability) in Jewish Quarter District. Would like some input on our itinerary and welcome ANY suggestions;
Day 1: Arrive in Budapest @ 1:00pm.
Afternoon at Miniversum, Opera House (exterior), and ?. Recommendation of where to eat.
Day 2: Morning 3 hr. Free Walking Tour of Budapest ending at Fisherman's Bastion. Includes . Danube Promenade, Municipal Concert Hall, Gresham Palace, Academy of Hungarian Sciences, St.Stephen’s Basilica
Chain Bridge. Castle District, Royal Palace, Matthias Church
Fisherman Bastion Castle Hill on own rest of day. Recommendation of where to eat that night?
Day 3 Morning 3 hr Free Walking Tour of Jewish Quarter and Synagogues. Dohány street Grand Synagogue
Kazinczy street Ortodox Synagogue, Rombach street Synagogue, Gozsdu Courtyard, Wallenberg Memorial Park, Last piece of ghetto wall. The tour doesn't include inside visits to the Synagogues. How difficult is it to go back and find them and cost to enter vs. booking a paid tour that includes interior visits?
Looking for afternoon suggestions.
Day 4 Board Viking Ship at 10:30am across from Budapest Marriott Hotel. Thinking of walking Andrassy Street and visiting the Market. Looking for other suggestions and night cruise.
Day 5 . Parliament Tour at noon. Shoes on the Danuabe either before or after Parliament Tour. Looking for morning and afternoon ideas. Must be back on board by 4:30pm.
Would you recommend buying the Travelcard or Budapest Card based on our proposed itinerary? If it's not too much trouble, could you help me map out the trams and walking directions, please?
Would like to work in time at one of the bath houses, night time cruise, and any other suggestions.
I have loved reading the trip reports that have been posted. Very Helpful!
