Full description
Visit Sighisoara, founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century. Depart from Sibiu in the morning and set off for Sighisoara, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches which could rival the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna. It is also the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, ruler of the province of Walachia from 1456 to 1462 and the figure who inspired Bram Stoker's fictional creation, Count Dracula.  On your way back to Sibiu, you will cross Biertan village, one of the most important Saxon villages with fortified churches in Transylvania. Learn about this fascinating region from a specialized English-speaking guide. Visit the fortified church in Biertan, with its beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. Hear about its history as a seat of the Lutheran Evangelical Bishop in Transylvania between 1572 and 1867. After an exciting day of discovery, sit back and relax as your are transferred back to Sibiu.

A small initial misunderstanding: if I hadn't phoned the assistance center, I would have been waiting in vain in Piața Mare, the group had already left ... Anyway, a very nice tour. The fortified church of Biertan, magnificent Sighişoara, is beautiful and evocative. Extremely knowledgeable guide.
