Itinirary help pls: Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava

Jump to last reply

I am in the very early planning stages of our Fall trip... I've been to Europe 6 times (5 in France, 1 in Belgium) but want to see more of what Europe has to offer. I'm from the Canadian east coast, usually go from my home airport and connect in Montreal or Toronto, then like to fly direct to my destination. We're limited to where we can fly to from those 2 cities (unless we want to go back to Paris!), but Vienna is one that's always interested me, and it seems easy enough to get to from Toronto.

If we land in Vienna (flights seem to get in around 9:30 am), and plan to use the rail system, would it be easy enough to go from the Vienna airport directly to Budapest, stay 4-5 days, then move on to Bratislava for 2 nights and then spend the end of the trip (6-7 nights) in Vienna? I don't mind a 2-3 hour train ride, as long as it's easy to get to the train station.

We're trying to limit the moving around, but at the same time want to see as much as possible. We're in our late mid-late 30s and like to eat! (nice cafés and gourmet shops), enjoy nice cities, castles, some museums and great scenery.

Any other suggestions? I'm especially concerned with where to go when we first land, and ease of getting to the airport on the morning we leave (flights to Toronto from VIenna usually leave at 10:30 so would need to be in Vienna at the end).

Thanks in advance!
