Black Sea Day Tour to Constanta and Mamaia

A great summery day tour, a mixture of golden sand, sapphire water, culture, history and yummy cuisine, by Eddie

Constanta is the 5th largest city in Romania, a harbor and touristic city that lies on the western coast of the Black Sea.  A cosmopolitan place where East meets West in a perfect harmony. The oldest city in Romania was founded by the Greek colonists from Miletus, in the 7th century b.c., under the name of Tomis.

Mamaia is the Romanian Ibiza, the most exclusive summer resort in Romania.

If you choose this Black Sea tour, in a single day  you could have a sunbath in Mamaia and feel the Greek and Roman vibes of Constanta.

Don't forget your beachwear and let's hit the Sun Motorway!

Highlights - Black Sea Tour to Constanta and Mamaia

  • Small Group Tour - up to 5 people. Due to the group small size, the shared tour version is  almost private in many ways. You'll get more value and fun
  • Ovidius Square - everything is here, pedestrian streets, coffee shops, restaurants, museums, historical monuments, cathedrals. And the Black Sea is very close.
  • The Roman Edifice with Mosaic - one of the largest mosaics discovered on the former territory of the Roman Empire. Built between the 3th and the 4th century a.d., over a surface of 2000 square meters,   this is the living proof of how important the city of Tomis was, especially for trade.
  • Museum of National History and Archeology Constanta -  the second most important museum in Romania, hosts an impressive collection. We are going to see here the Glykon Snake statue - the only piece in the world - representing a Roman  mythological deity.

Itinerary -  Black Sea Day Tour to Constanta and Mamaia

We leave Bucharest in the morning and head east to Constanta, driving on the Sun Motorway.

Once arrived to Constanta we start a nice walking tour around Ovidius Square and toward the Black Sea  shore.

First stop is the Museum of National History and Archeology Constanta, and we find here objects dating from the Paleolithic to the Modern era.  

Next stop will be the Roman Edifice with Mosaic where you could admire the ruins of an impressive ancient commercial center  and warehouse, where the floor is covered in 1700 years old Roman mosaic.

Then we are going to stop and visit the Grand Mosque. The first building in Romania to use the reinforced concrete.

Our walking tour will contine with the promenade alleys by the sea and the Constanta Casino.

You will have free time for lunch and/or shopping and then back in the car.

While we are at the Black Sea shore, the best thing to do here is to feel the sand under your feet. Thus, after a 15 minutes car ride we are going to experience this in Mamaia,  our last stop before Bucharest.

Our Black Sea tour ends in Bucharest after this charming day.

For private tours - by request - we could skip (ongoing) some of the tour components in order to have more time for others. Also, based on a prior request, we could have a different tour configuration, if possible.
