Day 7: Sibiu - Transfagarasan Road - Bucharest

Breakfast in the morning, then we will enjoy a sightseeing tour of the medieval Sibiu, also known as Hermannstadt.

Being so well preserved, the city gained in 2007 the title of the "European Capital of Culture". Highlights of the city tour include: the Big Square, the Little Square, Huet Square, the Iron Bridge, the Council Tower, the old fortifications of the city, the Evangelical Church and the Orthodox Church.

After the city tour, we will return back to Bucharest, via the famous Transfagarasan Road - "the best road in the world" according to Top Gear team in 2009. The road is one of the most spectacular routes in Romania, crossing Fagaras, the highest mountains in the country, and reaches the maximum altitude of 2,042 m close to the Balea Glacier Lake, offering amazing panoramic views. So, prepare your camera for some breath-taking shots!

Optional, you can enjoy lunch in a special location, at the on-site restaurant & terrace at the Balea Glacier Lake!

In the evening, we arrive back in Bucharest; drop-off at your hotel or airport (if your flight departure is in the same day).

**Please note that Transfagarasan Road is usually open between 1st of July - 30th of October; when the road is closed or the weather conditions do not permit it, we will follow the Olt River Valley instead.
