Crimea in the Fall (1st time)

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip in the fall that will include Romania, Istanbul, and the Crimea. I have made some progress on the Romania portion, so now I want to move on to the Crimea. We are in our 60's, well-traveled, independent, and most interested in culture and history (and wine).

This is what I have so far:

Fly into Simferopol and arrange transport to Yalta.

Yalta (3 nights) -- visit Livadia Palace, Vorontosov and Alupka Palaces, Swallows Nest, Massandra Winery, dinner with a local family (my husband speaks some Russian so he is really looking forward to this)

Arrange transport to Bakhchysarav along the scenic southern route and include a stop at the Naval Museum.

Bakhchysarav (3 nights) -- visit Khan's palace, Uspensky Monastery and the Cave Cities,
arrange a 1-day tour of Sevastopol inculding Crimean War sites and the Museum of 4 Wars

Transport to Simferopol and fly to Istanbul

Thanks so much for your help!
