Dealu Mare is one of the most beautiful wine-growing districts in Romania and said to be the “Tuscany” of Romania. Indeed, it is situated on the same latitude as Northern Italy, but tourism is still largely undeveloped. A cultural place with excellent wines from sunny south facing hills and more than 3.000 years of settlement history. Thracians, Dacians and Romans left their traces everywhere. Places to visit: Stone church and open air sculpture camp at Năeni (with a spectacular panoramic view), vineyards at Pietroasele, Fințești, and Săhăteni.
Special recommendation: A cycling tour through the vineyards. Information about the Dealu Mare Cycling Route can be found on www.travelbuzau.com.
Access: Dealu Mare extends to around 60 km northwards of the DN 1B between Ploiești and Buzău. The best way to discover it is to leave the national road and take one of the several small parallel roads that lead through the vineyards.
