1-Day Constanta & the Black Sea Coast Private Tour

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 day tour to 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 long-neglected, quaint Old Town, the feel of history and the unique atmosphere of this wind-swept city.

Program/What to expect

We set off in the morning travelling east across the vast expanse of the Baragan plain, then after crossing the Danube, we pass the rolling hills of Dobrogea, the ancient territory between Danube and the Black Sea.

Arrival in Constanta around 11:00 am, and before starting the tour we will have a refreshment drink to one of the open-air terrace cafes in Ovidiu Square, the main square of the historical center of Constanta. 

You will be given a general introduction into the history of Dobrogea region and of the city of Constanta. Then we may visit the Roman Edifice with Mosaic. While the building itself needs a make over, the outstanding mosaic pavement (partially preserved) is a beautiful testimony of the flourishing ancient Roman city of Constanta.

Next, visit of the Great Mosque, one of the city’s defining landmarks. The 140-step minaret provides panoramic views over the sea and the city.

We continue with a stroll on the promenade running along the coastline, from the port all the way to the Romanian Fleet Command and the Old Marina, passing the magnificent but dilapidated Casino located on the seafront, ‘the most famous abandoned building’ in Romania. 

We will stop for lunch and relaxation to one of the restaurants or cafes lying around the Old Marina. There are some fine seafood restaurants offering fresh fish caught by local fishermen.

In the afternoon, visit the popular beach resort of Mamaia and have a glimpse of the Romanian Coast’s flagship resort. Have a little stroll on the beach and maybe a cocktail with great view at a sky bar. Late afternoon return to Bucharest.
