The low­down Bucharest

GET­TING THERE

BA, Ryanair and Wizz Air all op­er­ate non­stop flights to Bucharest from UK air­ports.

STAY

The Athe­nee Palace Hil­ton (www3.hil­ton.com) is one of the city’s finest ho­tels and most im­pres­sive build­ings. Rates are sur­pris­ingly rea­son­able, too, and it’s only about 25 min­utes’ walk from the race start/fin­ish.

FUEL

Head to the old town, where there are plenty of restau­rants, or, if you’re de­ter­mined to have your pre­race carbs, try Trat­to­ria La Famiglia, Strada Ni­co­lae Go­lescu 14, where you can get a pasta din­ner for 26 Lei (£5) and a hefty glass of wine for 16 Lei (£3).

WARM UP

The Cis­migiu Gar­dens, near the city cen­tre, are stun­ning. Of­ten busy at the week­ends, so it’s worth get­ting there for an early run in breath­tak­ing sur­round­ings.
