A day trip from Roman times through the Middle Ages to Baroque

If you have an extra day and you are interested in something spectacular near Budapest, take a closer look at one of most eye-catching corners of Hungary and be part of a real time travel through 1800 years.

Visit Budapest's Roman ancestor, Aquincum first - a military camp and civilian town established on the Danube River in the 2nd century A. D. Take a walk among the ruins of ancient homes, shops, temples, Roman baths and the aqueduct.

Then continue your journey to Medieval Times. The 13th century Castle of Visegrád, a former royal seat of the kings of Hungary overlooks the River Danube, and provides excellent views onto the lush green forests of the Danube Bend.

Have lunch in a riverside restaurant on the Danube just like a king (queen).

Finally discover Szentendre, an atmospheric 18th century Baroque small town established by mostly Serbian and Dalmatian merchants. See the incomparable Szamos Museum of Marzipan Exhibits and take a last break before returning to vibrating 21st century Budapest.
