Then, relax into your private, air-conditioned vehicle and journey to Godollo Palace, just northeast of the city. A favorite summertime residence of ‘Sisi,' the 19th-century Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary, this baroque palace is restored to its former glory and framed by delightful gardens.

Admire the graceful exterior and enjoy an guided tour around the opulent halls, corridors, and chambers. Learn fascinating details about Sisi and her daily life, hearing how she came to the palace to escape the rigid royal protocols of Vienna.

View the portrait-hung chambers used by her and her family, and see the quarters where she wrote, read, and studied languages with her tutors. Stroll through the gardens and break for refreshments (own expense) like coffee and cake in the palace’s café.

Next, make the 45-minute journey to the charming town of Szentendre, situated north of Budapest on the River Danube. Famous for its baroque houses, churches, museums, and galleries, this postcard-perfect town boasts a relaxed, Mediterranean-style atmosphere and rich arts heritage that endears it to visitors.

Enjoy time to soak up Szentendre’s mellow pace on a stroll around the cobbled streets, pretty squares, and quaint shops, and take time out for lunch (own expense).

During your explorations, pay a visit to one of the town’s many museums — your choice – perhaps selecting the charming Marzipan Museum that showcases elaborate marzipan sculptures.

Finally, when the time comes, travel back to Budapest, where your tour concludes at your hotel or chosen central location.
