WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The journey starts early in the morning in Bucharest heading northwards to the former capital of the medieval Wallachian principality, Curtea de Arges. Situated in a picturesque landscape, this is one of the most historically significant places in Romania. Curtea de Arges is the home of an old Princely Court, dated back to the 14th century and a famous monastery, with a very interesting yet gruesome legend.
After the visit, travel toward the Carpathian Mountains stopping to admire the Vidraru Dam, one of the largest in Romania. Finally, enjoy a memorable ride along the picturesque Transfagarasan, declared by Top Gear, “the best road in the world”. Built high up in the Fagaras Mountains, the road stretches for 62 miles (100 km), offering breathtaking views.
Stops will be made on the way to admire the scenery, take photos and simply enjoy the strong and healthy mountain air before heading back to Bucharest, which will be reached in the evening.
