Go to Budapest, since that's what you're saying you would seriously love. We loved it when we went. We stayed in a B&B and had real conversations with the owners. Very different from staying in a hotel with people who just work there and won't really hold a personal conversation with you about Budapest.

The other cities are up to you. Since you've already been to Paris perhaps not go there again?

If you have 3 full weeks you could do 4 stops. It is hard to recommend an itinerary for someone else especially since we don't know anything about you and your interests.

Visit Budapest for sure and do a little research to see what else you would seriously love to visit.

where exactly to go and in which order may depend on flights and connections.

you can probably fly into Budapest and out of London, so if you can get from Budapest to amsterdam [probably an easy flight to arrange] you could then get the train to Bruges, and the Eurostay from Bruges/Brussels to London.


good job I checked - using Easyjet, that doesn't work as they don't fly from Budapest to Amsterdam. but you can fly from B'pest to London, so if you can fly home from Amsterdam, you could do this: Budapest - London - eurostar to Brussels/Bruges - train to Amsterdam - home.

you might like to look at Ryanair and other "cheap" flight carriers but IMO Easyjet are the most reliable.

My vote goes to Budapest, Amsterdam, Brussels/Bruges, Paris. Three weeks is plenty of time to visit these cities. Exclusive of travel time and arrival day:

4 days Budapest
3 days Amsterdam
3 days Brussels/Bruges (stay in one and do a day trip to the other). If you wanted to add a couple of extra days you could also visit Ghent and Antwerp.
5 days Paris

I like adrienne's itinerary, but I would substitute London for Paris, and would stay in Bruges and day trip to Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp.
