    We start our trip from Bucharest by driving to the small town of Urlati where we visit a superb manor-now-museum built in the 1850s in a typical Romanian architectural style: Bellu Manor. Its owner was a 'boyar', a rich landowner class from feudal times, influential in Romanian politics and economy. This is a marvellous example of old Romanian lifestyle and culture with many original, well-preserved exhibits.

  • A premium wine tasting with local cheese and superb views!
