Advice on Romania Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello! I’m planning a trip to Romania in July with my husband and 10 year old daughter, and am looking for advice on our itinerary. We have about 2 weeks. We plan on renting a car, and generally prefer basing ourselves in one place for a few days and taking day trips, when possible.

Day 1-4: Arrive Budapest, get to Brasov. 4 nights in Brasov. Day trips to Sinaia/Peles, Bran Castle/Rasnov, bear sighting trip

Day 5 – drive to Sighisoara, spend night

Day 6 – drive to Sibiu, 3 nights. Viscri/Biertan, Astra museum, villages like Sibiel, Transfagarasan Highway

Day 9 – drive toward Maramures – spend night near Turda, visit salt mine.

Day 10 – arrive Maramures, base ourselves in Breb for 3 nights or 4 nights. Visit Sighet, Sapanta, maybe cross into Ukraine to say we did it, small villages, wooden churches.

Day 13 maybe stay in Breb, or push on to Viseu de Sus

Day 14 – back to Bucharest, fly home

- What do you think of this general itinerary?
- Should we shorten time somewhere to give us more time in Maramures?
- We are thinking about flying back to Bucharest at the end to maximize our time. From Breb/ Viseu de Sus, what airport would you recommend? Baia Mare? Or perhaps rearrange timing and spend a day or two in Moldavia and fly back to Bucharest from Suceava or Iasi?
- We’re a little wary of renting the car at the Bucharest airport and driving to Brasov after a long international flight. Would it be feasible to arrange a driver or other easy transport from the airport to Brasov and then rent the car in Brasov with a drop off at some other airport?
- And finally, would you try to fit the Delta Danube/Black Sea coast into this trip as well? That seems like too much to me although my husband thinks it is a shame to go all the way to Romania and miss that.

Thanks for any and all advice!
