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 and starting from Ovid Square you will be given a general introduction into the history of Dobrogea region and the city of Constanta. Then we 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 Old Marina, passing the magnificent but dilapidated Casino located on the seafront. 

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, the Romanian Coast’s flagship resort. Travel above the resort and have a bird’s view of hotels, beach and the lake on a telegondola ride. Then, we return on foot along the promenade and visit the beach. Late afternoon return to Bucharest.
