Day 1: Arrival in Bucharest, city tour
Arrive in Bucharest, meet up with your guide, and rejuvenate after your flight at the sleek Berthelot hotel, situated right in the center of town. It’s a wonderful starting point for an investigation of the deep history and diverse culture of the city.
Traditionally a center for intellectualism, the arts, and avant-garde thought, Bucharest experienced a significant interruption with the advent of Communism in Romania. The present-day capitol still holds obvious remnants of this epoch in the form of Ceausescu-related monuments constructed on a grand scale. Surviving French-influenced architecture exists side-by-side with cool, modern office buildings to complete Bucharest’s current incarnation.
Follow your guide on an expansive city tour, and glean an exclusive perspective on the daily life of this outstanding city.
*should you travel to Bucharest on a flight that arrives late in the afternoon or evening, the city tour can also be done the next morning
