Hidden Gems Tour

Tour information

This romantic tour will uncover four of the most diverse and beautiful neighborhoods in Bucharest: Batistei, Armenian Quarter, Mantuleasa and the Jewish Quarter. The evolution of Bucharest is one of the best examples of the ambiguous relationship existing between the Romanian lands and the Ottoman Empire. This, in turn, created a rich mixture of architecture, cultures and cuisines. While perfectly preserving the spirit of the city, these former slums were later transformed into beautiful bourgeois communities that somehow managed to escape the hectic passage of time of the 20th century. To top it all off, we’ve also included is some leisure time in Bucharest’s most beautiful summer gardens and tea-houses, some of which are in 100-year-old houses.

This tour includes:
