Tours & Regions

Budapest Restaurant
Location

Budapest has one of the most idyllic locations. The Danube plain opens East and South of the city, exposing it to a wider world than Europe’s capitals further west. Budapest can offer richer influences and wilder tales than you expect. There’s no better way to start exploring than this that enjoying Hungarian food!

Budapest FIsherman's Bastion
Two Cities

Budapest is tale of two cities. Historic Buda is sited on its own plateau. Here eighteenth-century streets quickly give way to many magnificent views over the River Danube and Pest on one side, and out across rolling hills on the other. Even higher hills within the city limits offer panoramas that have to be seen to be believed, and Art Tours’ guides can chauffeur you to these highlights.

Budapest St Stephen's Basilica
Pest

Pest makes up most of the city. Its flat plain boasts grand avenues and interiors to rival even Vienna. Some parts mimic Paris and others mimic Rome, although its home-grown architecture can also be stunning. Pest turns an elegant face to the Danube, and its parliament building is perhaps the world’s most beautiful. It has three opulently decorated synagogues but these are not museums - the former Jewish district is lively, not least thanks to the large Jewish population.
