An alternative to Europe's classic city breaks, is, nonetheless, a week-end in Bucharest, Romania's capital city. Bucharest was mentioned for the first time during the reign of prince Vlad the Impeller, better known as Dracula. Since then, Bucharest grew steadily, being now a really cosmopolitan city. Internationally renowned artists, like the composer and interpret George Enescu, and several well-known opera singers have performed in Bucharest.

Besides, its history and its own charm, Bucharest offers everything what a European capital city can offer - starting with all kind of museums and theatres, where we can arrange tickets (the theatres, the Opera and the Operetta are usually closed from end June to mid-September), to discos and night-clubs. Despite the fact that under communist rule part of the city has been destroyed, despite social problems of more recent periods, Bucharest is, as always, the most beautiful and diverse city in the region. A simple tour of Bucharest is not enough to know a city. A lifetime would rather be the period one should dedicate to Bucharest.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1, Thursday: Evening walk. Individual arrival on Bucharest's International Airport. Transfer to the hotel through the village of Otopeni. During an evening walk the charm of Bucharest, its tales and legends, the charm of its comfortable pubs shall be unfolded. Accommodation for 3 overnights in a top 3-star or 4-star hotel in Bucharest (Hotel Opera, Hotel Central, Hotel Venezia, or Hotel Capitol, or a hotel of a similar quality) or a 5 star hotel (Hotel Continental or equivalent).

Day 2, Friday: Tour of the city by car and foot. Sightseeing tour of Bucharest, with a visit of the Museum of the Village, which brings together original houses from the villages of Romania. A walking tour of the old centre, will close our day. In the evening, drive to Urlati, which is laid in one of the best wine regions in Romania, for a wine tasting and dinner. Exception will make the tours organised in September, when we shall attend a second concerto whithin the George Enescu International Festival.
