Day 1: Bucharest – Curtea de Arges – Transfăgărășan road – Sibiu (D)
Meet your guide at 8am at your Bucharest hotel, and take a seat in your vehicle. Then, head onward to Curtea de Arges — former capital of Wallachia — to begin your 2-day tour. Here, take in top attractions including the Monastery Curtea de Arges — widely considered among Europe’s most beautiful monasteries.
Take the winding Transfăgărășan road through Moldoveanu and Negoiu — the two of the highest peaks in Romania — and admire panoramic views over the region’s spectacular scenery. Then, in the afternoon, arrive in the pretty medieval town of Sibiu.
In Sibiu, follow your guide on a walking tour and discover sites of interest including the baroque Brukenthal Palace, the 19th-century Bridge of Lies, the Grand Square, and the 14th-century Lutheran Cathedral. Along the way, gain insight into centuries of rich Romanian history.

After breakfast, visit the ancient city of Brașov — famous for its medieval Saxon walls and bastions. Enjoy a walking tour of the historical center and take in local landmarks such as the 14th-century Black Church — the largest gothic church in Romania — Catherine's Gate, the 15th-century Council House, and the Șchei Gate.
Next, head to Bran Castle — built between 1377 and 1382 and famous as the fictional home of Count Dracula. Learn of the castle’s role in defending the region from attack and hear of powerful monarchs such as Vlad the Impaler who once ruled the land.
