An expert guide will accompany you and will entertain you with interesting tales about the following historic sites that you will visit during the course of the tour: Esztergom: A former royal town, it was the first capital of the country and has been the seat of kings and archbishops for centuries. Visit the largest cathedral of Hungary and drive across the river to Slovakia to marvel at the stunning panorama atop the Basilica. Visegrad : At one time the border of the Roman Empire, you can still see the ruins of Roman watchtowers along the Danube. The view from here is superb, encompassing the incomparable Danube Bend.
