Bucharest

A little about Bucharest

The capital of Romania, Bucharest is a truly intriguing city where modern sophistication meets a rich and varied history. The business center of the city definitely has a cosmopolitan feel, but farther afield Bucharest still feels a little rough around the edges. The restored Old Town with its resplendent buildings is simply magnificent, as is Nicolae Ceausescu’s Palace of Parliament, where you can enjoy an enthralling tour. Bucharest also has some amazing cafes and delicious restaurants, especially in the Lipscani district. The city is no stranger to culture either, with numerous galleries, antique shops and concert halls. The most stunning landmarks are along Calea Victoriei, but you can see something impressive on just about every corner. After discovering the incredible variety of neighborhoods and architectural styles in the city, you might want to enjoy one of the cultural festivals, or take off for a unique day trip. If you’re ready for a full day, a trip to Transylvania including Peles Castle and Dracula’s Castle, will certainly be a memorable excursion, and very Romanian. We can also arrange for a private guide to show you around the city and the notable surroundings.

Nowadays counting 4000 in the whole country and less than 100 people in Constanta. This tour will help you discover the Old Town and its charming diverse history, architecture and culture, which would not be complete without the local Jewish heritage!

A little about Constanta

The largest port in Romania, Constanta has a unique atmosphere of history and cosmopolitanism. There's a beautiful seaside promenade which boasts several excellent restaurants where you can enjoy fresh seafood, and the city's architecture combines Catholic, Orthodox, Jewish and Turkish influences. Constanta is located very close to some of the best resorts on the Black Sea, so during the summer it is bustling with visitors. Constanta is also the oldest continually inhabited city in Romania, dating back to about 600 BC. That means there's a rich history and culture to explore here. History lovers have several interesting museums to choose from, but simply strolling along the harbor and stopping at some of the many cafes and restaurants is a pleasant way to spend a few days. The city is affordable so you can enjoy a level of luxury that will make for a wonderful holiday. If you like sun and sand, there's no better destination in Romania.

You'll see many kinds of natural biotopes, canals and lakes of the Danube Delta. Around lunchtime you'll have a break and a chance to buy a traditional fish lunch at a charming B&B. The way back takes the same route but you'll find everything looks different in reverse!

There are 12 monasteries painted with colorful religious images and they are unlike anything else in the country.

Included : Sighisoara to Sibiu Including a Visit to Biertan
Sighisoara

A little about Sighisoara

Even if you’ve never been to Sighisoara, a UNESCO World Heritage site, you know its most famous resident. Vlad Dracula once called the city home, and there are several architectural monuments dedicated to him, including his house. But it’s not all gory history here. Sighisoara is a magical city with towers and cobblestoned streets that give it an atmosphere all its own. You’ll find perfectly preserved buildings and works of art here, and much to do, both in and around the city. Some of the most impressive sites in Sighisoara include the Citadel, the Clock Tower and the Scholars’ Stairs, as well as the Church on the Hill, featuring 500-year-old frescoes. There are also several vibrant museums where history and culture will come alive. But you’re also not far from wine country when staying in Sighisoara, so we highly recommend getting out of the city for the day to enjoy a guided tasting tour. Many of the other cities and villages within easy driving distance are very much worth exploring. It’s the best way to get a real insight into the special charm of the entire region.

Included : Sibiu - Bucharest Private Transfer
Sibiu

A little about Sibiu

Walking through Sibiu is like walking through a fairytale, or perhaps a medieval movie set. From the 16th century Bridge of Lies to the 15th century towers, you’ll find something romantically ancient at every turn. But that doesn’t mean the city is frozen in time, there’s also a rich cultural life here to match the incredible architecture. You’ll have a fantastic time watching history come alive in Sibiu, even as you experience its more contemporary charms. This is a city of firsts: where the first book in Romanian was printed, where Romania’s first hospital and pharmacy were opened, and also where the country’s oldest museum is housed, the Brukenthal Art museum. You’ll be charmed by this mix of old and new. You’ll certainly want to meet with our local guide, who can give you a closer look at all the most amazing sites in the city, including the main square, one of the best-preserved in Transylvania. But you won’t be limited to staying within city limits, as there are several interesting day trips to take in the surrounding region. The Jidvei Vineyard in the nearby Tarnave Valley is the perfect place to enjoy a tasting of some of excellent Romanian wines and snacks. Calnic, Sebes and Alba Iulia Citadel are also nearby sites that are certainly worth visiting, and will show you a different side of this enchanting region.

1 Night in Bucharest

Day 1

To allow for any potential delays and to make sure you are at the airport in time for your flight, avoiding the likely traffic you could experience on the road from Bucharest's city center to the airport, we will arrange accommodation at a 4-star hotel close to the airport for your last night in Romania. Your driver will take you directly to the hotel.

Day 2

The RIN Airport Hotel you will be staying in provides a free shuttle at a preset time. The clerk at reception will advise you of the schedule.
