20 years ago a colleague's husband took her to Venice for a 40th BD treat. One morning they sat down for a coffee, and when it came to pay, as Judy put it, 'thank god Peter had his credit card with him'.

Venice and Budapest offer entirely different - and excellent - packages, but in terms of value there is only one place in it, and you are on their forum right now.

It is impossible to compare the two experiences directly. The choice of which to visit should be based on the season and personal travel preferences, etc. That being said, Venice is generally much more expensive to visit but a unique experience. Budapest is also a wonderful place to spend at least a week as a tourist.

you have seen one canal you have seen them all

venice is easily 3 times the cost of budapest

its worth seeing but as part of a week long holiday in northern Italy,you can get trains from milan etc

budapest is a far more rewarding destination

IMHO
