I will be heading to Budapest in mid-July and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on things to do/see. Thanks to some great insider reviews, I will be staying at the Marriott about half the time, the other half will be spent at the Meridien. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Well, I guess I need to thank you, Pltnmprincess, for prompting me to pull out my photos of Budapest. I visited in October 2006.
My "must see's" were, in no particular order:
Although I didn't do it, I now wish I'd taken a day trip to one of the wine towns such as Eger. I did take a day trip to Szentendre which was ok, not great (a real tourist town).
I'm sure there is much more to see! Have a wonderful trip!

Would anyone recommend exchanging US$ for local Hungarian currency? We fly into Budapest and begin our cruise there. We will be in Budapest for two days and from what I have read so far they prefer local currency. Thank you.
