Itinerary & Notes

Welcome to Romania! Upon arrival into the country’s capital of Bucharest, head to your hotel where you will check in and meet your Songlines Travel Leaders. Have the rest of the afternoon to explore the city under your own steam. Bucharest boasts a host of good museums, parks and trendy cafes. It is also home to the bizarre Palace of Parliament, which is well worth a visit. In the evening, rejoin your tour group for dinner where you will enjoy typical Romanian food, local wine and traditional music.
