Sleeping

Don’t expect luxury in Sibiu’s tranquil surrounds: the guesthouses in Cisnădie, Răşinari and along roads in between are simple, home-run affairs, and all the more charming for it. There are plenty of options listed on www.ruraltourism.ro. More glamorous digs, and efficient hostels, await in Sibiu itself.

Eating

Cisnădie has a handful of cafes and pizza places, but it's hard to beat the range of places to dine back in nearby Sibiu.
