Budapest....

by Florida gal »

I only have 2 days in Budapest and I pretty much know the sights I want to see. There are so many wonderful sights but only a limited amount to see them in. My question is is it worth a half day tour to see the Hungarian countryside, with a stop at Szentendre orshould I concentrate on Budapest alone. Thanks.

2 full days is enough to see Budapest.  It really depends on how much you are planning to see and do there though.  Are you taking tours or are you just going to wander around the city?  If you just wander around doing things at your own pace and are not relying on tours and such then you should have enough time to do the countryside.

  If not, then you might be rushing your time in Budapest to try and get things done if you do have a lot to see and such.

  When I was there, I had 2 and a half days and just wandered around town without tours or anything (other than walking to one of the caves up in the hills and taking a cave tour).  I was able to see all I wanted to and leisurely do it, but that's me who hates organized tours.  So for me just taking the Metro or just walking, I could have had the time if I wanted to do the country side tour as you mentioned...

Thanks for your input. I was planning on hop on /hop off and touring on my own seeing s much as I can in 2 days.   I figured it ws the fasted way to get around. I know, some people like them some hate them. I see it as 2 days worth of cabs for minimal amount of money..LOL..I am big into walking and could walk and explore all day, eat drink and continue.

  I've never taken any Hop on Hop Off busses, but have seen them all over Europe.  I just had a daily unlimited metro pass I think for trips that were around the metro.  For others, I just wandered myself and just walked everywhere.  Local buses are also a good option, but when I was there in 2010 it was my first time being to Eastern Europe so I was too confused and scared to try and figure out how to pay for a ticket for a bus and get it activated.  Now I'd just probably get a bus schedual online before and have an idea of what buses go where and just get a day pass and do just that...
