Sibiu walking tour with a local guide

Guided City Walks in Sibiu and around

Tour details

TOUR description

If the walls of the Old Town of Sibiu could talk, you never have needed a guide. But, as they are always quiet, it would be a pleasure for me to share with you the history behind each building, street, tower or square that has a story to tell to the curious eyes of the visitor. During the guided tour, I’ll lead your steps through the cobbled streets, from the imposing medieval walls, to the romantic squares surrounded by historical buildings; from the colourful Orthodox Cathedral, to the majestic Lutheran Church, from the legends of the Bridge of Lies to the amazing stories of the medieval guilds. The tour will be also a good opportunity to find out more about the historical, geographical, economical or cultural aspects of Sibiu, in particular, or Transylvania and Romania, in general.
But this tour can be more than that. If my tourists want, this tour can be like having a walk with an old friend in his new town. We can stop at any time a have a short break at one of my favourites cafes, or even have lunch or dinner, if we get hungry. Also, to be honest, I don't really like guiding large groups in Sibiu. I prefer to get to know my tourists, to interact more with them and to share together thoughts and ideas.
