Join the optional morning panoramic tour that begins on the Pest side of the city. View the Parliament, City Park and the historical Heroes' Square.

The day is yours to explore some of Budapest's fine museums, shop to your heart's content at the bustling Covered Market, or perhaps pamper yourself at one of Budapest's well-known spas.

Begin in the medieval town of Visegrad, home of the former royal residence of King Matthias Corvinus, for a spectacular view of the Danube Valley. Continue to Esztergom, one of the oldest towns in Hungary. Upon arrival, visit the Esztergom Basilica, the largest church in Hungary and current seat of the Catholic Church.

This morning bid farewell to Budapest, and depart for the "Golden" city of Prague. Arrive to Prague in the late afternoon and begin exploring this bustling city on your own. The medieval city center is a wonderful mixture of cobblestone lanes, courtyards, and countless spires that lie in the shadow of the majestic 9th century Prague Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prague is also a modern and energetic city, highly regarded as one of Europe's most culturally enriched urban centers. Tonight, mix with the locals at Wenceslas Square, shop for local handicrafts and the famous Czech glass, or enjoy one of the many charming cafes and world-class restaurants
