Bucharest is a large city with many interesting sights. For this reason, it can be difficult to see all these places if you only spend 2 days here.
In order to get the full Bucharest experience, you should combine two modes of travel: by foot and by bus.
Like in other major cities from Europe, there is a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus in Bucharest.

The start and finish bus stations is

Piata Unirii (click to see on google maps)

Piata Presei Libere (click to see on google maps)

This is where you can find the buses more easily, because they are stationed. Despite this, you can also grab one of the buses at any other stop along the way.

The bus can be picked up at 14 different points

all signalled by a red sign and the words ‘Bucharest City Tour’.

In case you want to see where all these stops are located in Bucharest, you will find a map in the link from the end of the article.

If you will take the bus from Piata Unirii, you could also join our free walking tour in the Old Town which starts close by every day at 10:30 am. This way, you can check out the places available only by foot before deciding to go for a bus ride.
