Before you ask, yes, I’m traveling again. My Aunt and I booked a trip to Milan back in January as part of Emriates annual companion deal. We booked a Wednesday-Wednesday trip around Labor Day weekend.
Since I’d been to Milan before, I wanted to use the trip as a springboard to go someplace new. Initially, the plan was to go to Croatia. After searching for flights, there didn’t seem to be many affordable or nonstop options from Milan to any of the major cities there.
A few weeks after booking the flight, my Aunt who had never been to Venice told me she wanted to also incorporate that and a trip to Cinque Terre. So the planning began and I needed to find some place close that we could go to in addition to those two places in Italy.
Sometime during this period, I came across a few blogs on Budapest. After checking for flights and finding several for as low as $40RT from Milan, I was sold.
So in addition to booking two days trips to Cinque Terre and Venice, in Italy, I was now on the hunt for things to do in Budapest. Based on flight schedules and pricing, it looked as though 3 days would be just enough time to explore this city filled with quite the unique history.
More on this specifics of our trip up next…
