Itinerary

Wed 14 Jun

Lunchtime arrival in Budapest and transfer to the 4-star K+K Hotel Opera, located in the heart of the city, across from the Opera House and just a short walk to the Chain Bridge. After a free afternoon to relax and settle in, a welcome dinner will be served in a local restaurant.

Thu 15 Jun

Join your guide for a morning tour of Budapest, concentrating on the Buda side. On Castle Hill we visit the colourful Matthias Church decorated in frescoes, and see the fairy-tale Fisherman’s Bastion. Return to hotel for a free afternoon. In the late afternoon transfer to the first performance at the Palace of Arts.

Fri 16 Jun

Day at leisure to make your choice of Budapest’s museums or perhaps to test the waters in one of its celebrated thermal spas. Return to the hotel to take your transfer to the mid-afternoon performance at the Palace of Arts.

Sat 17 Jun

This morning your guide will introduce you to Pest, from the stunning Parliament building on the banks of the Danube via St Stephen’s Basilica to Heroes Square. Lunch will then be served at a local restaurant before transferring back to the hotel to freshen up before the mid-afternoon performance.

Sun 18 Jun

Today we revisit the Hungarian Parliament to see inside the opulent interior, which is then followed by a private boat trip along the Danube. Lunch will be served in a local restaurant at the end of the tour, before the early afternoon at leisure. Mid-afternoon transfer to the final performance.
