The private day trip around Transylvania and Wallachia will start from Brasov, and go to the Rasnov Citadel, the origin of mysterious legends... You'll hear the sinister stories about the next monument we'll visit, Bran castle. Are the stories that place the murky obsessions of Count Dracula himself in this location true?
After some free time to have lunch in Sinaia we'll go to Peles Castle, one of the most beautiful buildings in the city which holds a curious record for precocity and innovation throughout Europe. Then we'll return to Brasov. The tour will follow a similar itinerary to the Transylvania and Wallachia Castles Tour.

We'll visit the famous Church of the Hill and the Clock Tower, home to the city's History Museum.
After spending free time having lunch, we'll go back to Brasov. During the return journey, we'll admire the Rupea Citadel one of the most symbolic bastions in the region. The tour will be similar to the Sighisoara Trip.

The tour will leave from Brasov to Viscri, a small town in the Transylvania region full of many hidden secrets. We'll wander around the historic centre, which stands out for its fortified church. Next, the tour will continue on to the city of Sighisoara. Here, in Vlad Tepes' birthplace, we'll visit the famous Church of the Hill and the Clock Tower.
