Leave room for desert!

And since no meal is complete without a desert, our final stop will be in a hidden garden, tucked away from the busy city. Here we try a delicious homemade tarte or pie with marmelade from the season's wild fruits from alpine meadows and forests of the mountains around Sibiu. Just like my grandmother used to make!
