SHORE EXCURSION CONSTANTA: itinerary

The shore excursion to Constanta is a journey back in time. We’ll begin by walking through the old town centre, much of it built in the Middle Ages, and absorb its unique atmosphere.

At Piata Ovidiu (Ovid’s Square) stands a statue dedicated to the Roman poet Ovid, who was exiled by Emperor Augustus in 8 AD. At the Roman Mosaic Edifice, we can admire what’s left of the intricate mosaics created during the rule of the Roman Empire.

Also in the square, we’ll find the Natural Sciences Museum and the Museum of Archaeology.

The tour continues at the Cazinoul, or Casino. This art-nouveau style building was designed by architects Daniel Renard and Petre Antonescu, and completed between the two World Wars. It’s stunning architecture has made it a symbol of the city and its location overlooking the Black Sea makes it a great spot for photos.

No shore excursion of Constanta would be complete without visiting the Orthodox Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul. This Greco-Roman cathedral was built on the ruins of the ancient town of Tomis, some of which can still be seen in the church grounds.

We then return to the harbour for boarding.
