    Old Town
    Stop: 3 hours
    Imagine yourself in the late 19th century, in a romantic era of peace and prosperity called the “Belle Époque." At the time, Bucharest was a city where the West met the East, instantly charming travelers with its multicultural diversity, bohemian lifestyle, and gorgeous architecture. The city experienced its greatest cultural boom during this period, and was known as the Paris of the East. This 3-hour private tour is structured as a story, taking you along the famous Victory Boulevard and through the restored Old Town. Each major attraction has its own tale to tell, allowing you to go back in time and discover the social and cultural life of the era. You’ll see beautiful palaces and historical buildings of Neoclassic, Art-Nouveau, Baroque, and Byzantine styles. The Old Town is an area bursting with life that still resembles the charm of the Belle Époque with its old street lamps, vintage cafés, bistros & lounges nestled within 18th century houses, and street musicians on every corner. You will be picked up and dropped off at your hotel in Bucharest, and accompanied by a private local guide who will tell you the stories of the 19th century, the history behind the buildings and answer any additional questions you have.
