Situated on the banks of the Danube, Budapest is one of Europe’s loveliest and most unique capitals. A city renowned for music, you can drift through its streets accompanied by strains of classical composers as well as the lively fusion of jazz, folk, and Romani influences. Book your flight to Budapest with Alitalia and begin your exploration of this Eastern European gem.
As with most of Europe, food and drink play a vital part in Budapest’s cultural identity. To taste the city’s wonderful nightlife, hunt out one of its “ruin bars” for a pint of local beer or a shot of fruit brandy. For antiques, take a trip to Budapest’s Falk Miska Street, which is overflowing with galleries, antique shops, and auction venues. And, of course, no visit to Budapest is complete without sampling the music. Make time to go to Margaret Island’s Music Fountain for free live music.
Spring and early autumn tend to show Hungary at its best and are therefore the most popular times to travel to Budapest. But the city is bursting with activities all year long. Because of Budapest’s exciting nightlight, a hotel room at one of its casinos provides a good option for accommodation. Visit Alitalia’s website for off-season flight deals to Budapest.
