The trip starts at your hotel in Bucharest, from where the guide will pick you up in the morning. After about an hour and a half you will reach the base of the hills on which lies one of the largest wine regions in Romania: Dealu Mare.
But until you reach the vineyards, you will stop at an old aristocratic manor to get to know the old-fashioned lifestyle: the Bellu manor in Urlati.
Bellu manor in Urlati
The Bellu manor was built in the middle of the 19th century, in the old Romanian style. It was the home of the family of Baron Alexandru Bellu, a descendant of a wealthy Macedonian family who settled in Urlați.
The manor is located in a picturesque area, surrounded by a park with old trees.
After a guided tour inside and in the pavilion, you can take a walk on the domain to see the vineyards that stretch out on the hills.

The stone church
The stone church is built of the famous Naeni stone extracted from the nearby quarry. From the foundation to the altar, the builders used the same material – stone.
The Thracian Necropolis
Near the church you will see the Thracian Necropolis. Between 800 and 600 BC, Thracians living on the tops of the area buried their dead in stone-hollowed tombs. The first such tombs were opened in 1938 and since then the place has been called the Thracian Necropolis.
After you explore the Necropolis, it’s time to go back to Bucharest. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel or other location of your choice.
