See the city from a different angle and enjoy the breathtaking panorama on top of the Basilica and the best rooftop bar!
On this tour we combine some of the most stunning sights of downtown Pest with beautiful panoramic views - you will surely have the best photo opportunities if you join me! We visit several must-see attractions, including the St. Stephen's Basilica, the Parliament, the Liberty Square, the Andrássy Avenue and the State Opera House but we take the experience one step further by going on top of the Basilica and visiting the best rooftop bar in town. The Basilica Look Out is the highest spot in Pest where you can enjoy an unbeatable 360° panoramic view.
This is a light walk, adjusted to your pace and with numerous opportunities for a coffee break. Also note that there is an elevator going up at both locations! During the walk you'll hear all the interesting stories about Hungarian history, culture and local life and I would be happy to orientate you and give you recommendations for the rest of your stay! This tour is perfect for you if you would like to have a truly memorable and unique experience of Budapest!
We'll first discover the lively Deák and Erzsébet squares, then we head to St. Stephen's Basilica. We'll not only see the Basilica inside, but we also visit the panorama terrace on top, which is a unique spot to have a panorama of Budapest.
Then we continue our walk through the green Liberty Square, where the statue of Ronald Reagen stands next to the last remaining communist monument in front of the U. S. Embassy.
We admire the Parliament building and learn interesting stories about the Hungarian history and politics. Next up you'll see a special Hungarian secessionist building and we wander into a wonderfully covered market hall.
Afterwards, we'll walk along the world famous Andrássy Avenue, check out the State Opera House and the Nagymező Street (the Broadway of Budapest) on our way. Finally, we arrive at the 360 Rooftop Bar, which is a great place to have a coffee or drink!
