Tour Romania's seaside city of Constanta with your private guide and comfortable car
Spend a relaxing day visiting the port city of Constanta and the Black Sea Coast, enjoying the salty Black Sea breeze.
I invite you on a private tour of Constanta, Romania's largest port at the Black Sea and one of the most important cities. Modern day Constanta is the ancient city of Tomis, with a history going back to 600 BC when it was founded by the Greek colonists. It is worth visiting Constanta for the seafront promenade, the quaint Old Town and the unique atmosphere of this wind-swept seacoast city.
In the afternoon, walk on the beach and stick your feet in the Black Sea at Mamaia, the most popular beach resort in Romania, located on the northern outskirts of Constanta.
In case you are more than 4 people and need a larger vehicle I can arrange for a minivan.
We set off in the morning travelling east across the vast expanse of the Baragan plain, then passing the rolling hills of Dobrogea, the ancient territory between Danube and the Black Sea.
Upon arrival in Constanta around 11:00 am, we will have a refreshing drink to one of the open-air cafes in Ovidiu Square, the main square of the old town.
You will be given a general introduction into the history of the region and visit the Roman Edifice with Mosaic. Then, enjoy a leisure stroll around the Old Town and on the seafront promenade, passing the magnificent Casino, now derelict. We stop for lunch to one of the restaurants/cafes lying around the old bay.
Later, visit the Great Mosque, one of the city's defining landmarks. The 140-step minaret provides panoramic views over the sea and the city.
In the afternoon, short drive to visit the popular beach resort of Mamaia, Romanian Coast's flagship resort. Walk on the beach and stick your feet in the Black Sea -or you may even have a swim. Evening return to Bucharest.
