Constanta city tour from Bucharest description:
The largest port in Romania and also one of the oldest cities in the country is Constanta. During summer it is a very popular destination, but you can enjoy a Constanta city tour all year long.
If you want to discover the Roman traces and other civilizations that still live in the city, but you don’t have time to stay there, you can book this day trip from Bucharest. After a guided tour in the old town of Constanta, you will have a few hours at the beach in Mamaia, a well-known resort on the Black Sea.
If you stay longer in the city, you can try also other day trips from Bucharest.
Your day trip will start in Bucharest, where your guide will pick you up from the airport or from your hotel. After a 2,5 hours drive on the Sun highway, the nickname of this road, you will arrive in Constanta. On the way, you will pass on the Anghel Saligny bridge, across the Danube.
Once you arrive, you can start your guided tour in Constanta. Your guide will show you the old buildings in the city centre of Constanta, Roman ruins, the tourist port and the symbol of the city: the casino, on the seashore. Usually, these places are included in all Constanta tours.
Your guide will also tell you Greek legends about the city, Roman tales from an antique poet, local stories and the Constanta casino history. This way you will discover how different religions and cultures can cohabitate together, in harmony.
You will also have lunch in the city centre.
Your day trip from Bucharest to the Black sea will continue in the afternoon. You will travel near Constanta, in Mamaia resort. Mamaia is probably the most popular seaside resort in Romania due to its many clubs and music festivals.
It has very few permanent inhabitants (7 declared in 2002), but is overpopulated during the summer. Mamaia is built on a coastal ridge between the Black Sea and the estuary called Siutghiol (Süt-Göl: “milky lake” in Turkish). The ridge has a length of 8 km, but a width of only 300 m. The very long and wide beach is covered with very fine sand, mineral parts, shell parts.
You can spend an hour or two on it to sunbathe and to breathe the salty air.
After this, it is time to go back to Bucharest. After the ride back, your guide will drop you off at your hotel.
