Budapest Day Trip from Vienna With Hotel Pick-Up

Admire the statues of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars in Heroes’ Square, sweeping panoramic views of the city from Fisherman’s Bastion and the waters of the Danube River. As you travel from each major landmark, learn the rich history behind Budapest and its architectural gems. At lunchtime you have the option to wat in a typical Hungarian restaurant (own expense). After lunch a walking tour through Buda awaits you. Experience the historic Royal Palace, the romantic Fishermen’s Bastion, Matthias Church, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Margaret Island with its gorgeous parks and recreational facilities.
