Day 1 Depart USA

You depart on your overnight flight to Bucharest. Dinner and breakfast served on board.

Day 2 Welcome to Bucharest

Upon arrival at the airport your guide meets you and escorts you to your deluxe hotel located in the center of the city. The afternoon is free so you may want to head to one of the many parks within the city. Perhaps take a boat out on the lake? This evening you are going to one of Bucharest's favorite restaurants where the 1920's and ‘30's come alive. After dinner you are free to try one of the many jazz clubs or discotheques.

Day 3 A Walking Tour of Calea Victoriei

Bucharest is laden with historical charm; from the cobblestone streets of the old city center to the grand architecture of the Royal Palace and the lush greens of Cismigiu Park. Remodeled in the late 19th century by French architects, the city features large neo-classical buildings and even its own Arc de Triomphe on the elegant Soseaua Kiseieff, home to the city's mansion district. Today you will take a leisurely walking tour of Calea Victoriei, the oldest and, arguably, most charming street in the city. Built in 1692 to link the Old Princely Court to Mogosoaia Palace, it was initially paved with oak beams. Between the two world wars, the street developed into one of the most fashionable streets in the city. Your walking tour will begin at the Palace Square with the Romanian Athenaeum on one side and the Royal Palace on the other. The Palace has been transformed into the National Art Museum and you will have a private tour of the vast collection. In addition to the largest collection of Romanian art including sculptures by Brancusi, the museum also holds the former collection of the royal family including works by El Greco, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Breughels (father and son) Cezanne and Rubens. After an extensive visit and further strolling you come to The Military Club built in 1912 to serve the social, cultural and educational needs of the Romanian army. While the main part of the building is off-limits to civilians, you are invited to enjoy lunch at the sumptuous officer's club. After lunch you visit the George Enescu Museum located in the Cantacuzino Palace and the repository of the works of Romania's great composer and violinist a student of Johannes Brahms and a teacher of Yehudi Menuhin.This evening you will have a pre-theatre dinner before attending a performance by the George Enescu Philharmonic at the Romanian Athenaeum or the Romanian National Ballet at the Opera House.

Day 4 Ceausescu’s Legacy, the Old City and Dracula’s Court

Romania has been cursed with two despotic leaders, one ancient and somewhat mythical, one more current and all too real. The first, of course was Vlad Tepes or Vlad Dracul transformed by Bram Stoker into Dracula. The other was the megalomaniacal communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu who brutally ruled Romania until the collapse of Communism when he was caught trying to flee the city and shot by the people. Today you will visit the square where he made his last speech, realizing then that the tide had turned. You will also see what was called at that time the People's Palace which was built by the dictator for his personal and political use. With 1,100 rooms it is the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. We will visit what is now called Parliament Palace as well as the Palace of the Patriarch, the center of the Romanian Orthodox Church. You will have lunch at Carul cu Bere (The Beer Cart) which was opened in 1879 and soon became the most popular gathering spot for Bucharest's literati. Suitably refreshed you proceed on a walking tour of the Lispscani District. At the beginning of the 1400's, most merchants and craftsmen; Romanian, Austrian, Greek, Bulgarian, Serbian, Armenian and Jewish established their stores and shops in this section of the city. The area became known as Lispscani because of the many German traders from Lipsca or Leipzig. Today the cobblestone streets are home to many art galleries, antique shops and coffee houses. You have some time to explore before heading to the remains at the Old Princely Court built in the 15th Century by Vlad Tepes also known as Vlad Dracula. According to local lore, Vlad kept his prisoners in dungeons which commenced beneath the Princely Court and extended under the city. You conclude our day with a visit to the National History Museum.

Day 5 Driving to the Black Sea Coast

After breakfast your driver is waiting to take you to the Black Sea and the resort town of Constantza where your deluxe hotel awaits. After lunch you are free to enjoy the facilities of the hotel and take a dip in the pool or in the waters of the Black Sea. The sandy sea bottom slopes gently away from the shore, there are no dangerous currents and the sea has almost no tide so it is ideal for a refreshing dip

Day 6 The Greek and Roman Heritage of Romania

This morning your guide will be waiting to take you to the remains of the Greco-Roman city of Histria which was founded in the 7th Century BC by Greek merchants and flourished under Greek, Roman and Byzantine Empires. You will visit the remains of Aphrodite's Temple, The Temple of Zeus and the Roman Baths. You then drive back to Constantza where you will visit the square honoring Ovid who was exiled here by the Emperor Augustus. You will then visit the remains of a large complex of Roman buildings that linked the upper town of Tomis (as it was known in Roman times) to the harbor. Not all remains today but there are close to 10,000 square feet of colorful mosaics still visible. After lunch you return to the hotel for a free afternoon.

Day 7 Exploring Contemporary Constantza

This morning you will explore modern day Constantza starting with the port that dates to the times of the Greeks and is, today, the fourth largest port in Europe. You will pass the Genoese Lighthouse built to honor Genoese merchants and the Cathedral. You will visit the Casino, completed between the world wars in an art nouveau style and offering superb views of the sea. You walk the promenade where you will have lunch overlooking the sea before returning to the hotel for an afternoon of leisure

Day 8 Murfatlar Vineyards and the Return to Bucharest

You have the entire morning to relax on the beach or shop in town. After lunch your driver is ready to take us back to Bucharest. On the way back you stop at the Murfatlar for a tasting of some of their superb white and red wines with history of winemaking going back to Greek times.

Day 9 Return to USA

After breakfast, your driver is waiting to take you to the airport for your return trip.
