To inspire you, the book offers a rundown of the Top 10 Attractions in the city, followed by an itinerary for a Perfect Day in Budapest. The What to Do chapter is a snapshot of ways to spend your spare time, from taking to the waters in the myriad spas and wellness centres to catching a performance at the Hungarian State Opera House.
You'll also be armed with background information, including a brief history of the city and an Eating Out chapter covering its hearty cuisine. There are carefully chosen listings of the best hotels and restaurants, and an A-Z to equip you with all the practical information you will need.
