Day 1 After spending the first part of the day walking and exploring, it's time to unwind. Visit one of Budapest's many thermal baths such as the newly renovated Rudas Bath or the Széchenyi Bath. At night head to the Jewish District, you might want to grab a meal at one of the cosmopolitan restaurants in Gozsdu Udvar such as the Spíler "gastropub". Then visit one of Budapest's famous ruin pubs like Szimpla Kert. There are plenty of other great bars to check out along Kazinczy Street also.
Day 2 On day 2 explore District VI and visit the St. Stephen's Basilica: we recommend heading up to the dome for the breathtaking vistas. Then walk down the exclusive World Heritage Listed Andrássy Avenue until you reach Heroes' Square, where you'll find the Museum of Fine Arts (currently closed for renovations and it's scheduled to reopen in March 2018) and the Kunsthalle modern-art hall. If you didn't get a chance on day 1 you could walk around City Park and then visit the Széchenyi Baths. Alternatively, during winter there's the City Park Ice Rink, while at any time of year it's worth visiting the Vajdahunyad Castle here too.
Day 3 Ttake the M1 millennium metro from City Park to Vörösmarty Square, from there walk along Váci Street and indulge in some shopping. Here you could visit the Gerbeaud House, or the Szamos Gourmet House patisseries. For dinner we recommend heading to Oktober 6th Street to see the St. Stephen's Basilica lit up at night and to try excellent Hungarian food at the Kispiac Bistro or the Michelin-starred Borkonyha. Alternatively you could enjoy a Danube dinner cruise and see the city lit up at night. You'll know what we mean when you see it - when the sun goes down Budapest really brings it!
