Constanta & Black Sea Coast 1-Day Private Tour

Overview

I invite you on a private day tour to Constanta, the biggest port in the Black Sea and one of the largest cities in Romania. Modern day Constanta is the ancient city of Tomis, with a history going back to the days of the Greek colonists who founded it. Tomis became a place of exile for a melancholic Poet, and a thriving port in the time of Constantin The Great -a splendid Roman Mosaic bears testimony to that period. Constanta was then overrun by barbaric tribes, fell into a long decline under Ottoman control, and rose once again as a cosmopolitan, active trade center -before communism left its mark…

The shabby historical district is coming back to life but still undergoes a slow rehabilitation, the magnificent Casino is ‘one of the most beautiful abandoned buildings’ in Romania… even so you may love Constanta for the seafront promenade, the quaint Old Town, the feel of history and the unique atmosphere of this wind-swept city. 

This is not all – before returning to Bucharest, visit the bustling beach resort of Mamaia and enjoy a spectacular telegondola ride that offers a panoramic view of the entire resort from above!

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 Dobruja, the ancient territory between Danube and the Black Sea.

Arrival in Constanta and starting from Ovid Square you will be given a general introduction into the history of the region. Then you will admire the Roman Edifice with Mosaic. While the building itself needs a make over, the mosaic pavement (partially preserved) is outstanding.

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 Old Marina, passing the famous Casino, the iconic symbol of the city. 

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, just a short drive north of Constanta. Travel above the resort and have a bird’s view of hotels, beach and the sea on a telegondola ride. Then, we return on foot along the beach promenade (about 2 km walk -or, we may return with telegondola). Late afternoon return to Bucharest.
