we will be visiting Hungary in early august. we have 8 nights and plan to spend time in Budapest and then we thought we could rent a car and travel to another area possibly lake Balaton. I wondered if anyone could give some advice on an itinerary. we are a family of 4. The kids are aged 17 and 20. We want to see the city but also have some chill out time. We aren't looking for noisy areas especially outside of Budapest. How much time should we spend in Budapest? and is it a good idea to go to the lake in august and if yes which town would you recommend -( we prefer quiet not parties)? Or would it be a better idea to visit some other area instead I've tried looking for itineraries on the internet to get some sort of idea of where to visit but they all seem to combine Budapest with Prague and Vienna, so its difficult to know how to divide the time up.
Anyway I'd really appreciate if anyone could give me a few pointers. Thanks
