Are there any art museums or types of cuisine in Budapest that should
not be missed? Or any day trips from that city that are worthwhile? I
am staying an extra two days after my 8 day budapest-prague tour. I
think the baths are included as part of the tour.
eva, two days in Budapest isn't much. But you can make the most of it. Rather than me throwing out a bunch of ideas; let me know what neighborhood you are staying in and the dates and i can maybe help maximize the time and let you know if there is anything special going on in town. I would avoid day trips it you just have 2 or 3 days in town.....
For food (and or experience) my top choices are
EXCELLENT HUNG / JEWISH ($$)
For excellent traditional food, this is pretty hard to beat.

GYPSY MUSIC & GOOD FOOD ($$$)
If you want to hear gypsy music and feel the character of east meeting west, then this is the best of the few similar places in town. Food and service are pretty excellent.
