We took the suburban tram (#5) up to Aquincum and walked to the site on our own. The area seemed much like the side of a highway but we wanted so badly to see the ruins that we kept going; it paid off. The ruin garden was fantastic. Try to find the information signs to guide your walk through. They will tell you what the layout was like and what each space was (kitchen, bath, etc.). My bf and I took so many pictures; we spent many hours here. It was extremely hot so we were glad we brought water, but there was also a small cafe inside the museum. We had been told that the place has lost much of its government support and it showed. I personally didn't mind the abandoned buildings but it gave a sad feeling to the place. I really feel that visitors to Budapest should set aside time to see this piece of history and show their support so that it doesn't become lost to the world once more.
