2-Day Medieval Transylvania with Brasov and Sighisoara Tour from Bucharest
From US$ 209.15
Overview

Avoid the rigid itinerary of a tourist group excursion on a 2-day private tour of Transylvania’s medieval landmarks, enjoying the flexibility to explore at your own pace and focus on aspects that interest you. Discover iconic locations such as Bran Castle, Brasov, and Sighisoara, and gain insight into the region’s legends, culture, and cuisine from your professional guide. Round-trip transport, overnight accommodation, and breakfast are included for a seamless experience.

What to Expect
Day 1: Bucharest - Sinaia - Bran - Brasov - Sighisoara
On the first day you will be picked up from Bucharest and we will drive towards the beautiful Prahova Valley.Our first stop will be at the imposing and magnificent palace of Peles. Built by the royal family of Romania during the 19th century, this palace offers an insight of 19th century German Renaissance style of decorations. The next stop will be in Bran Castle, known also as Dracula’s Castle. The imposing construction watches over a valley from a strategic position, it was originally built as a fortress at the former border between Wallachia and Transylvania. Together we shall discover the connection between the legendary ruler, Vlad the Impaler, and the infamous vampire.
In the afternoon we will head to the city of Brasov, a city that retains its medieval charm with the help of its well kept historical center. Our walking tour of this lovely town starts from the main square from where we shall admire the old City Hall with its clock tower, the monumental Gothic Black Church, the fortifications, the two watch towers up the hill, the craftsmen guilds and the narrowest street in Europe.
In the evening sets in we will reach Sighisoara, where you will be accommodated.

Day 2: Sighisoara - Sibiu - Bucharest
After breakfast, we will go on a tour of the medieval citadel of Sighisoara, one of the very few permanently inhabited citadels in Europe. This is also the birthplace of the legendary Vlad Dracula, whose house we will see, after which we will climb to the top of the 500 year old clock tower for a fantastic view over the town. 
Next stop will be Sibiu, also known as Hermannstadt. This is the heart of the German community living in Romania, the German Saxons having lived here for over 800 years. A former European capital of culture, Sibiu boasts many great sights from medieval times when it was a citadel: the Great Square, the Brukenthal Museum and an infamous Bridge of Lies. 
Afterwards, we drive along the spectacular Olt river valley going back to Bucharest.
