Detailed Description

Experience the finest luxuries of the Balkan Peninsula during your 11-day Bulgaria and Romania tour. These two geocentric regions have witnessed the rise and fall of the glorious empires of the ancient Persians, Greeks, and Romans. However, they have managed to maintain a strong tie to their culture and history through the ages, which is magnificently put on display. Revel in the hidden gems of Europe in Bulgaria and Romania, which are all the more priceless for being overlooked.

Your adventure through the Balkan Peninsula will begin with your arrival in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, where you will spend three nights. Your private tours will introduce you to the fabulous history and distinctive culture of the city and greater Bulgaria. You will also visit the remarkable Rila Monastery for insight into the religious history and architectural grandeur of the region. You will have one night in Plovdiv to discover the remains of the former Thracian trading center and one of the oldest towns in Europe.

You will continue your excellent exploration of the Balkans in Romania when transferring Bucharest. You will visit towns along the way such as Veliko and Tarnovo before strolling the streets of Romania's largest city with your private guide. In Braslov, you will have two nights to traverse the infamous region of Transylvania, home to the mythical Dracula and historical figure Vlad the Impaler. The final leg of your journey will take you to Sibiu for town nights to enjoy one of the best-preserved towns of Transylvania where you can visit Dracula-themed stores or wander the layers of a historic citadel.
