itinerary for 2 nights in budapest

arrive mid day, first day and leave mid day on 3rd day.

would it be best to see castle side the first day/night - thoughts on wine tasting at castle?

sites to see on our only full day (2nd day) on Pest side.

we do not want to spend a lot of time IN museums/opera houses.

sorry we didn't schedule more time.

What day of the week and what are the dates? Where are you staying? Faust wine cellar next to the Castle Hilton is probably what you are looking for to have a full flight tasting.

Do the castle hill first afternoon/evening. There are many museums up there that you don't want to see. They will all be closed on Monday so no lose.

You are getting in late. you will have time to walk around and look at the buildings, maybe the church which closes early, the bastion, and then the wine tasting. That's about it. for Monday/

A fair amount depends on where you will be staying ... ?

Many people like the wine tour (I assume you mean Faust Wine Cellars); many people are not that crazy about wine generally; and many who are interested in wine in a fairly serious way do not find the Faust program particularly engaging. It really depends more on your travel style and personal interests than anything else.

I am running on the assumption the OP is interested in wine since they asked for it, They also asked for wine tasting on castle hill, which pretty much narrows it down to Faust which is what I mentioned. If someone knows of another place within those parameters I would like to know about it.

Sorry. Meant to ask about itinerary for tues.

Will be leaving on river cruise mid day wed.

Have heard from friends that the wine tasting and venue were worthwhile

Open to other ideas since we will probably spend first day /evening on buda side
