My BF and I are going to Budapest on Friday and basing there for a week. Have a good idea about the main sights for the city but can't decide on trips outside the city, bar a day trip to Vienna. Not keen to travel too far out of the city - preferably less than 2 hrs each way. If we were to do one other day trip outside Bpest - where would you recommend? Would like to see 2 towns in the one day of possible as each of the nearer ones (1-1.5hrs hours) looks like a half day in their own right. I mean - Visagrad/ Szentendre/ Esztergom. can 2 of these towns be visited in the one long day?

As per Budapest itself - any recommendations welcome, especially re, bars and restaurants - oh and baths! have been googling but so hard to decide!

Finally, is anyone there at the moment or just back? How is the weather? sounds like it's pretty hot :-)

Any other tips welcome, thanks!
