Fun fact - until 1873 the Danube River separated the towns of Buda and Pest. Now unified as Budapest, it’s a beautiful city to explore on foot - and it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Upon arrival from Rome, we opted for public transit. Three stops in, we exited the shuttle bus at the train terminal and the hub for folks traveling in and out of the city, It was lunch time - we popped into a Greek fast-food restaurant, shared simple feta and tomato salad and Mussaka. Delicious!
In the few blocks to our AirBnB we saw beautiful old buildings, unexpected sculptures and dramatic wall art. There was a cafe on every block, a hostel here and there, and a smattering of curious shops - brushes, cupcakes, and boutiques, plus a beer garden or two.
