The medieval town of Sighisoara is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for good reason. Enclosed by once strong defensive fortifications, Sighisoara Citadel is a celebration of colour and charm. The use of vehicles is restricted inside the Citadel so walking along its stony lanes feels like a time travel like no other. The medieval Old Town is very small yet full of hidden treasures. Read on and find out what to do in Sighisoara, this medieval gem of a town located right in the heart of the stunning Transylvania region.

One of the main reasons we decided to plan a trip to Romania in the first place was the country’s castles. The idea of going castle hunting in Transylvania fascinated us. Bran Castle or Castelul Bran, one of the best castles in Romania, was definitely among the ones we wanted to visit. Since picturesque Brasov was the first stop on our Transylvania road trip, a half day trip from Brasov to Bran Castle was one of the very first things we enjoyed in Romania. 

Bulgaria’s proximity to Greece makes it an ideal destination for short or even longer trips from our country. Bansko, in particular, is very popular with Greeks. Especially those living in Northern Greece. For the latter it’s approximately a 3-hour drive to Bulgaria’s top ski resort. However, that’s not the case for people living in Central or Southern Greece. For us, driving to Bansko from Athens, apart from being quite tiring, is also expensive. Fuel and road tolls cost way more than catching a Ryanair or Wizz Air flight to Sofia. So when the opportunity arose for us to visit Bansko in order to attend the Bloggers On Top 2018 Unconference, we booked our cheap flights to the Bulgarian capital and then all we had to figure out was how to get from Sofia to Bansko. 

Venice is a destination unlike any other. The floating city got us under its spell from the very first moment we laid eyes on its beautiful canals and pastel-coloured buildings. Walking around Venice’s picturesque cobblestone streets is enchanting. Yet seeing the city from the water is pure magic. Be it a private gondola ride, a vaporetto ride or a Venice boat tour the best vantage point to marvel at the charms of La Serenissima is the water.
