Tihany is perched on a hill and represents a very kitch and touristy "old" Hungarian village. Crammed with eateries and paprika shops the prices are sharp and access is by the road train from the harbour. Tour buses roll in around 11am so be warned...More

If you have not enough time, you should travel with it, because balatonfured big, but I think on foot it's much better.
