This eight-day tour is for those who are still enchanted by the mystery of Dracula. Join us on this guided, eight-day tour to discover the castles and fortresses that inspired chilling stories of vampires and legends surrounding Dracula, the lead character of the famous, late-nineteenth-century Gothic horror novel by Bram Stoker.

Starting with a Bucharest sightseeing tour, this trip will take you to Transylvania through the beautiful Transfagarasan Road. See some of the medieval cities and landmarks of Transylvania, including the castles of Poenari and Corvin. Walk through the cobblestone streets of Sighișoara, a city with the only inhabited medieval fortress in Europe.
