- We will book some cool restaurant in advance to celebrate Saturday night. It could be him Gundel (email protected) or also the Spoon Café & Lounge (email protected), among others
- Finally, we have achieved book in parliament as a group being 2. For this we send an email to email protected And they answered us the next day with the time, the group and the ticket office where we had to pick up the tickets.
- There are also several options for download audioguides in mp3 for the ipod and thus be able to listen while we visit. For example, PLAY & TOURS (for a fee) or the website of the NATIONAL OPERATION
MAIN TRANSPORTATION: The only way to go to Budapest and take advantage of the 4 days is to go in airplane. Several companies fly to Budapest nonstop, among which Iberia (operated by Malev) and own Malev. However, since we saw that the low cost company Wizzair began to operate in Madrid and Barcelona, we closely follow the prices, to end up taking an offer in March for !! € 56 / pers !! everything. Will the planes fly? Hehehe
ACCOMMODATIONS:They will be updated in the "Accommodations" section. If there is something that every day we have clearer in our trips is that an accommodation for a getaway has to be central to be able to kick the city. But Budapest is not a cheap city, which made the final budget quite expensive for us.On this occasion we have not given it much time, because although it has almost no opinions on the internet, we think that the location and the look of the Central Basilica Hotel It is excellent and its price is not excessive. COMPLETE ARTICLE ON ACCOMMODATION HERE.
The accommodation is located next to the Basilica of St. Stephen, a perfect starting point for each day as all the nerve centers of the city join here. The Chain Bridge over the Danube is just a few meters away too.

PASSPORT: It is not necessary to carry ID, but it is always recommended.
