Village Life, Vampires, and Variety

With warm hospitality, varied cuisine and superb wines, Roman ruins and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, scenic rural landscape, and cultured cities, it’s not surprising that Romania is sometimes dubbed “the new Italy.” Combine that with the spooky, and sometimes kitschy, history of Transylvania and Dracula, and you reveal a varied and diverse country begging to be explored.

Traveler Reviews

  • "Awesome experience exploring a region off the beaten path that exudes old world charm, culture, and a history that is older than my everyday experience; I stayed in a hotel built in the 1400s, Wow! I loved the intricate woodwork and the over-the-top extravagance of Peles Castle."
