Jump to last reply

My 2 DDs and I are planning a 2 week trip to Central Europe this summer. Here is our proposed itinerary, we don't like to change hotels too much, prefer to do a base "camp" and day trips:

July 14 - arrive in Budapest, rent an apartment - any suggestions for 3 people? preferably with 2 bed, ba. What part of town should we investigate - Pest or Buda? Need air conditioning. Spend 6 days sightseeing in Budapest (Jewish sights like Doheny synagogue, Opera house, Gellert Baths, Raoul Wallenberg sites) with side trips like a cruise on the Danube, a visit to Herend factory/Lake Balaton, Miskolc (where my family hails from) What sights should we be sure not to miss? Restaurant suggestions?

July 20 - board train in morning for Vienna, arrive around noon. Need hotel (triple) for 3 nights. Will spend Fri, Sat, Sun sightseeing in Vienna. Need art musuems, architecture, sightseeing & restaurant recommendations.

July 23 - take bus or train from Vienna to Cesky Krumlove ? Spend afternoon sightseeing. Need overnight triple room and dinner suggestion. Spend Tuesday morning, afternoon sightseeing, bus/train to Prague.

July 24 - arrive in Prague, want to rent 2 bed, 2 ba apartment for 5 nights in Old Town with air conditioning or well located to sightseeing. Need restaurant recommendations. Want to concentrate on Jewish Prague, visit Castle, Charles Bridge, Wencelaus Square, art musuems, what else to see?

July 29 - return home

We do not want to rent a car. We probably won't do any tours, maybe hire a guide for day trips. Suggestions for apartments, hotels in Vienna, Cesky Krumlov, restaurants, any sightseeing we shouldn't miss would be much appreciated. Comments on itinerary would be helpful. We want to work in a "spa day", probably in Budapest for steam, massage, facials, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help!
