The town of Eger produces some of Hungary's best wines, including the celebrated "Bull's Blood" red. Enjoy a leisurely day in this enchanting baroque town flanked by rolling verdant hills, partaking in a 3-course lunch and a 5-tier wine tasting.

Arrive in Eger's ancient city center, founded in the 10th century and long serving an important place in Hungarian history. Admire the impressive dome and colorful frescoes of St. John Cathedral, the second largest church in the country.

Take a guided stroll on cobbled streets to the fortified Castle. Its compound, protected by tall, thick walls, is home to archaeological excavations and a splendid Gothic palace. Hear how brave women from the town fought alongside a handful of Hungarian soldiers to defend the castle against the sieging troops of the Turkish sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent, in the 16th century.

A scenic drive past traditional vineyards brings you to one of the country’s most renowned wine regions, “The Valley of the Beautiful Maidens” (Szépasszonyvölgy). A local restaurant welcomes you with a delectable 3-course lunch of traditional Hungarian dishes. Visit a professional cellar to learn about the wine varieties produced in the area, and enjoy a 5-tier tasting before returning to Budapest.
