  • DAY 2: RANCA MOUNTAIN RESORT - TRANSALPINA ROAD - SIBIU
Day 2: Ranca Mountain Resort - Transalpina Road - Sibiu

In the morning, enjoy your breakfast "with a view" at the pension, overlooking the valleys and mountains.

We leave Ranca Mountain Resort behind and continue our scenic drive on TransAlpina Road, heading to Sibiu medieval city.

Transalpina Road is a not-to-be-missed attraction of our tour, being the highest road in Romania and one of the most beautiful ones in terms of scenery! Winding its way through valleys and plateaus up to 2,145 m in Pasul Urdele, the road offers breathtaking views together with lots of driving excitement. Transalpina is known also as the "King's Road", as it was fully modernized in the time of King Carol the 2nd, being inaugurated in 1939 by the King himself. Conceived as a strategic military access route, the road was also restored by the German army during the SWW, but was left completely forgotten during the communist time, being only recently renovated and opened.

Optional lunch stop on the route.

In the evening arrival in Sibiu, one of the loveliest and best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, where we will spend our last night.

Accommodation in a 4* hotel, centrally located, with a delicious traditional dinner included in a local restaurant. Food culture is one of the main attractions of the city, as Sibiu was named "European Region of Gastronomy" in 2019!
