Itinerary

DAY 1:  BUCHAREST - CONSTANTA - DANUBE DELTA

Pick up from your hotel at and drive to Constanta, the oldest city on the Romanian territory (657 BC). In the area, a Greek colony was founded called Tomis. Later on, the Greek settlements have been conquered by the Romans and renamed Constantiana, after the sister of the Roman Emperor Constantin the Great.  Nowadays Constanta became the largest harbor at the Black Sea and the fourth largest commercial harbor in Europe. In the Old Town you will visit: The Museum of History & Archeology, The Roman Edifice with mosaic (the largest mosaic from the Roman Empire), the statue representing Publius Ovidius Naso, The Muslim Mosque built by the first king of Romania, Carol Ist  as a homage to the local Muslim community (going up in the Minaret Tower you can have a splendid panoramic view of the whole city of Constanta), The Orthodox Cathedral dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul  (monument of Byzantine architectural style), The Aquarium Constanta, the first public aquarium in Romania, and the Genoese lighthouse first built in the 13th century, and rebuilt in the present shape in 1858-1860.

Lunch break in Constanta (meal "on your own") followed by drive to the Danube Delta. You will arrive there in time for dinner (also "on your own") before settling in for the night at your accommodation.

DAY 2:  DANUBE DELTA - BUCHAREST

Breakfast at the hotel is included in the tour price. After breakfast, a boat will be ready to take you for a few hours trip in the heart of the delta.

The Danube Delta is the largest river delta in Europe and home of 300 species of birds and 160 species of fish. There are about 20 protected areas including the 500-year-old Letea Forest and Europe’s largest pelican colony.

At the end of the boat trip, you will continue your itinerary toward Tulcea. This city (mentioned for the first time in the 8th century BC) is known as "The gate to the Danube Delta," and it is located on the site of seven hills. Tulcea's ancient name was Aegyssus, and it was a Greek settlement initially. You will have lunch ("on your own") and head to Bucharest, arriving in the evening.
