Day 4: Porumbacu de Sus - Transfagarasan Road - Bucharest

After the traditional organic breakfast and delicious coffee in the morning, we leave the villages behind and head back to Bucharest.

Today, as we enter the Carpathian Mountains, we will discover the most scenic high-altitude road in Romania - Transfagarasan Road, named by Top Gear "the best driving road in the world" at 2,000m high! The winding road is one of Romania's must-see attractions, offering amazing panoramic views, so prepare your camera for some breath-taking shots!

**Between 1st of July and 30th of October, the Transfagarasan Road is usually open and we can also visit Curtea de Arges Monastery on the route; when the weather conditions do not permit it and the road is closed, we will change our route to Olt River Valley and visit Cozia Monastery instead.

In the evening, we arrive in Bucharest; drop-off at your hotel or airport (if your flight departure is in the same day). End of our rural break in Romania.
