Thanks in advance for any comments and opinions. First some background info for context: We are planning some last minute travel and we are doing so on points/miles so that effects our options in booking so close to travel time.
That being said, we are able to get airline reservations as well as hotel reservations for 5 days in Prague and 5 days in Budapest for travel in end of June early July.
Adjusting the number of days in each city would not be possible without drastically increasing the points and miles, so at least for this itinerary (if we keep it) we are locked in to 5 days in each city in that order-Prague first, then Budapest.
Lastly we might be able to add a day or two in Vienna at the end- but might not.
With all of that being said, in looking at past forum comments it seems most suggest spending more time in Prague (and Vienna) than Budapest - so just wondering about 5 days in Budapest - with the possibility of some day trips.
It seems we can really get a "feel" for the city and might enjoy having the time to explore- but again would welcome suggestions of how to spend the time, or should we rebook and adjust the days for travel at another time.
**As for hotel in Budapest we would be staying at the Hilton Budapest
One final point - getting from Prague to Budapest wouldn't be a mainly be a travel day (6 hrs by train) - so, it would be 4 full days (and 1/2 day) in Budapest- but 5 nights.
Alternatively, we can plan this more carefully and travel later - possibly end of August or September and have more flexibility with itinerary and days in each city.
Thanks in again for any comments.
