Customer Travel Tip: As you know from Venice, also Budapest has 2 public transport ships on the Danube (like the Vaporetti in Venice). One going south and the other going northbound. Helps you much to keep the walked kilometers at a limit you like :D.

Liked: as beautiful like my living place Vienna, but all the best in Budapest is beside the Danube river. This you dont find in Vienna.

Disliked: the prices of the park garage in the city :)
