This vacation is an abbreviated version of a longer trip. Day 1Clients check into the new Four Seasons Gresham Palace Hotel in Budapest. They can spend the afternoon enjoying a spa treatment or walking around the city to acquaint themselves with their surroundings. That evening, theyll dine at the Spoon Cafe & Restaurant in a boat docked on the Danube that provides spectacular views and really wonderful nouveau Hungarian and continental cuisine, said Nagy.Day 2Travelers take the citys funicular up Castle Hill to reach the Royal Palace and the Old Town section. In the afternoon, they wend their way up Gellert Hill, where they can visit the Citadel, the fortification built by the Hapsburgs, and the Gellert Monument. The site for dinner is Kacsa. The outside isnt much to speak of, but the inside is very traditionally decorated and they specialize in duck -- kacsa means duck in Hungarian, Nagy said. The food is out of this world and the wine list complements it beautifully.Day 3Travelers take a private tour of Parliament. Its the largest building in the country with its 691 rooms, considered by many historians to be the architectural symbol of Budapest, Nagy said. Travelers also visit Monarchia Wine Cellar & Shop, which carries labels of well-established and award-winning winemakers from the countrys wine regions. Clients dine at Cyrano. This was one of the first contemporary restaurants to open in Budapest after the end of the Eastern Bloc era, said Nagy. Its fantastic and still here more than a decade later.Day 4Clients travel to Paradsasvar, a village in the Matra mountain range. Theyll stay at the 19th-century Sasvar Castle Hotel. They can use the thermal water baths, hike or ride horses at the Fenyes Farm horse ranch. They dine that evening at the hotels restaurant.Day 5Clients travel to nearby Eger, situated in a valley at the foot of the Bukk Mountains. Theyll visit Monarchia Winery Estate as well as the Pok-Polonyi Cellar for a private wine tasting and traditional Hungarian dinner.
