Full description
On the first day you will have a city tour of Bucharest, where Western and Eastern cultures merge beautifully. After an overnight stay in the city, you will leave the next day for the beautiful Transylvania region. You will stop at an important religious landmark, Curtea de Arges Monastery (replace in the summertime with a road trip to Trasnfăgărășan). You then head to Sibiu, named the European Capital of Culture in 2007.

On day three, visit Sibiel – a quaint Transylvanian village praised as one of the most authentic and well-preserved rural areas in Europe. After a short walk in the village, your tour continues with a short trip to Alba Iulia, before visiting the Turda Salt Mine. The next morning will be devoted to a city tour of Cluj-Napoca. From Cluj, you will be heading to the northwestern part of Romania, Maramureș, a region resembling a fascinating open-air museum. You end the day with a Romanian dinner and folklore show. The next day you will visit two ancient wooden churches that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site: Poienile Izei (Iza Meadows) and Barsana.

Next up is Biertan, the largest fortified church in Transylvania, built by the Saxons in the sixteenth century and nowadays listed as a UNESCO monument. An important highlight of the Classic Romania Tour is Sighișoara, the only inhabited medieval fortress included in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Eventually you will reach Brasov, a city founded by the Teutonic Knights, located at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. After an overnight stay, you will take a walking tour of Brașov before visiting the famous Bran Castle. Here, you will learn about the legend of Dracula. On the last day you will return to Bucharest.
