Explore Transylvania’s rich and diverse past in this fascinating tour through a broad and mountainous region full of medieval Saxon towns, pretty villages, National Parks, fairy-tale castles, impressive forts, and romantic countryside. You will see Romania’s most exquisite castle, Peles Castle, a royal palace perched on a rolling green hill set against the stark beauty of the Carpathian Mountains – you could almost be in a Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale.
You will take a step back in time on your journey through Saxon Transylvania - past villages untouched by modern hands, past churches, castles, monuments and buildings with their medieval architecture intact, and sampling delicious traditional Romanian fare along the way that is sourced locally and farmed organically.
