    What to Expect
    Wandering through the medieval towns of Transylvania, it’s easy to forget what century you’re in. Begin your tour back in time in central Brașov, where you’ll meet your guide and climb aboard a car or minivan for the trip north. During the scenic 1.5-hour drive, listen to interesting facts and anecdotes about Romanian history from your guide.

    Your first stop is the 14th-century village of Viscri, built by Saxon colonists. As you approach, admire the impressive whitewashed walls and red-roofed towers that surround the village, designed to protect early inhabitants from invading Turks. Wander the rustic streets of the town and visit its UNESCO World Heritage-listed church (own expense).

    Continue on to the remarkably well-preserved Sighişoara, so rich in history that the entire village is a UNESCO site. Hear about the medieval town’s legendary former resident Vlad the Impaler, a Wallachian prince and warlord who inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional character Dracula. Enjoy free time to explore Sighişoara’s cobblestoned streets, bell tower and citadel on your own, and visit a café to purchase lunch if you wish.

    Finally, visit the hilltop Rupea Fortress, which was built for defense in the 1300s and later repurposed as a Saxon village in the 18th century. Head inside the walls for a guided tour (own expense), and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside before the return drive to Brașov.

    We were party of a big guided tour of Romania and opted to separate and go on this. It was incredibly worth it. Our group did the same tour, but it cost 3 times as much and the others saw 1/3 of what we saw....More
