The trip.me way of travel
A complete Romania travel experience enables you to see the local life, culture, and diverse sightseeing attractions. Usually, visitors head to the capital Bucharest first and then navigate their way to other destinations during their trips to Romania. There are several direct flights to Bucharest available from Europe.
On a round trip Romania tour from Bucharest, visitors can see the sights of this urban city. Architectural buildings, art museums and cultural experiences abound in the capital. The Parliament Palace and the Romanian Athenaeum are two of the must-see places of interest here. Along the way, you can stop at shopping boutiques and cafés. Food and drink at local bars/pubs, and entertainment too are an integral part of any tour to the capital. You can also make a trip to the impressive wellness center Therme Bucharest located a short distance from the city for a rejuvenating time.
Any trip to Romania is incomplete without visiting one of its most famous tourist attractions –Transylvania. After all, vampires and mysterious castles make for an unbeatable combination. Many Romania travel packages offer a tour of the castles and places associated with this legend inspired by the Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler or Vlad Dracula. These include Bran Castle, the royal court in Targoviste, Bistrita, the Corvin castle–one of the most splendid castles in Romania, and the ruins of the Poenari Castle.
The Transylvania region has so much more to offer besides the Dracula factor. Visit the well-preserved medieval fortifications in various cities. Taking a walk down the streets here is like time-traveling into the medieval past. Among UNESCO World Heritage sites located here are the Dacian fortresses, the beautiful medieval city of Sighisoara with its amazing historic center, and the fortified churches in seven villages including Valea Viilor, Biertan, and Saschiz. You can get a flavor of local life in a rural setting while visiting these picturesque villages. On Romania tours, you can also explore the incredible Turda underground salt mine.
Breathtaking Carpathian Mountains and Danube Delta
If you are looking for stunning natural beauty and mesmerizing vistas when you travel to Romania, make a trip to places located near the Carpathian Mountains. The mountains are home to forests, gorges, lakes and caves. Visit the Apuseni Mountains, a part of the Carpathians, to see the Scarisoara cave–a big glacier cave. Another superb attraction is the Peles Castle near Sinaia. You can also travel to the Bucovina region to take a look at the painted monasteries of Moldovita and Sucevita recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The exquisite frescoes that adorn the external walls of these monasteries make for a fabulous sight.
Another sightseeing attraction on a trip to Romania is the Danube Delta. The mighty Danube River that originates in Germany makes its way to Romania where it forms a delta before emptying into the Black Sea. It is a great place for birdwatching on a private boat trip. You can even go fishing here.
Depending on what you're after, Romania is a year round destination. There's a great deal of variation in climate (Bucharest can reach 40°C in summer, while Brasov can hit -35°C in winter), but winter visits hold their own kind of charm in a country that wears its rugged side very much on its sleeve.
For coastal fun, May to August is the obvious time to visit, and it's also a great time to explore the Danube. In bustling Bucharest it could get oppressively hot, so it might be best to stick to the edges of this time period.

Bordering the Black Sea and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, Romania’s medieval citadels and modern cities offer a hypnotic blend of the old and new. Its pristine landscape and myriad attractions make it an interesting travel destination. Mountains and rivers, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, culture and diversity – experience it all on exciting Romania tours. Starting from the buzzing capital Bucharest, you can journey to several amazing places spread across the country.
Castles, Vampires and Medieval Cities
One of the prime attractions on a Romania holiday is Transylvania made famous as the setting of Bram Stoker’s vampire novel Dracula. A remarkable natural landscape dotted with enchanting castles and fortresses along with the mystery of the vampire legend make the region a delight for travelers. As you explore the several castles in Transylvania, you will also come across the ones associated with Count Dracula.
Transylvania’s majestic mountains, lush meadows, forests, and cities with a rich medieval history have a unique allure. On Romania private tours, you can get an in-depth look into several sites of interest in Transylvania. Discover the medieval history and Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture of the lovely city of Brasov and explore the city of Sibiu that is known for its medieval structures and cultural attractions. Transylvania is also home to some of Romania’s spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
A Romania holiday package provides an opportunity to explore the country’s gorgeous vistas. The stunning Carpathian Mountains have several national parks while the Danube Delta–the second largest delta in Europe–has wonderful attractions of its own. You can also enjoy the sun, sand and sea along the beautiful beaches of the Black Sea coastline during summer. Idyllic villages with verdant surroundings and a laidback charm are also a part of the appeal of a Romania vacation.
The most interesting parts of Romania's culture are to be found in the strong folk traditions which still thrive today in rural communities of the country. Wood carving, ceramics, weaving and more remain crucial parts of rural life and can fascinate visitors to Romania's small mountain villages. You'll also find plenty of traditional folk music and dance in these areas.
Romanian cuisine can be roughly defined as "hearty", with meat and vegetable soups taking pride place on the dinner table. Don't be surprised to be offered tripe soup and even calf foot soup. There's a great deal of Hungarian and German influence in the food, so you'll find sauerkraut and more involved in many typical dishes.

Corina was extremely helpful in guiding us in development and establishment of an itinerary that met our personal interests and timelines, as well as steering us toward historical Romanian locations and experiences. We loved our Tripme "Secret Romania Adventure" and have many great memories to share with our family and friends. When additional family priorities made date changes necessary, the direct contact with Corina became invaluable.Read More Read More Less
Once in lifetime trip to Romania that that my family will never forget. Our trip planner had everything planned to the smallest detail - all travel, accommodations, and all venues were confirmed and paid ahead of time allowing us to move from city to city without any confusion or hassle.
A big part of our trip was to visit the village our family originated from. Our planner arranged to have a local speaking guide to accompany us for the day but she exceeded our expectations by contacting building caretakers and distant relatives prior to our arrival so we could actually visit the buildings and the people, rather than just "look around".
I would recommend Trip.me to anyone who wants to visit a country they are not familiar with - they certainly removed all of the anxiety out of our trip.
Florin , Corina's husband was great , he was so kind , helpful & knowledgeable.
We were so grateful to have him as our companion for the whole trip.
Corina's communication responsivenss and planning for the trip to Transylvania was very good. The actual trip with Florin, our guide an driver, exceeded our expectations. Florin was an excellent and personable guide, a good safe driver, and pleasant company over five days.Read More Read More Less
