Today, meet your Tour Manager at Gatwick Airport in London. From here, we board our flight to Budapest, transferring to our hotel, the 4-Star Hotel Lifestyle, on arrival. Day 2 sees us enjoying a guided tour of beautiful Budapest.
This city of two halves is divided by the River Danube, and sewn together with a variety of bridges. On one side, hilly Buda is rife with stunning examples of medieval architecture, filled with old buildings and cobbled streets. On the other, fl at Pest is a lively spot during the day or night, boasting of a myriad of trendy restaurants and bars. On our tour, we explore both sides of the river. Some of the highlights include the Parliament Building, a stately and symmetrical building, whose whitewashed facade reflects perfectly in the waters of the Danube, which it overlooks. St. Stephen's Basilica, Budapest Castle, and Matthias Church are also sights that we see, and included in our tour is entrance into Mattias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion, which offers breathtaking views over the city.
This afternoon, you are at leisure to further enjoy the delights of Budapest. Why not enjoy a late lunch at one of the vibrant bars or cafés that fill Pest? This evening, we venture to a local restaurant to enjoy our first dinner together.
