Please critic our itinerary....and your thoughts on Budapest

Jump to last reply

We have just figured out the (loose dates) for our trip to Europe this September.

So you'll know a little about us...2 couples traveling together. Adventureous and flexible. Love car trips and have driven all over Ireland, Nova Scotia, Canada, a bit in South America and Asia.

A big part of the fun is getting in the car and traveling all day to our next destination stopping in various little towns etc. along the way. The guys trade off driving so no one gets burned out.

we are interested in the cities but look forward more to the country side and meeting the locals. We like museums but don't prefer to see every one or stay for hours on end. We like history, architecture, scenery, culture and discovering out of the way places. We will be renting a car and driving from place to place. We have a time frame from Sept 19-Oct 4.

That being said, here's what we have in mind. Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions. It will be very much appreciated.

Sept 19: Leave CA on a red eye arriving in Vienna.

20 & 21 Vienna

22 stay in Cresky Krumlov

23-25 Drive to Prague and stay 3 nights

26-28 Drive to Budapest and say 3 nights

29 Drive to Zahgreb and stay 1 night (going because my husbands relatives are from here. He wants to see if he looks like anyone ;0)

30-Oct 2 Istria (area) 3 nights

Oct 3-4 Vienna and fly home

Again this is really just a first pass at the itinerary and nothing is written in stone at this point. Is there anything that is glaringly wrong that stands out for you???

We also talked about skippping Buadpest?? What are your thoughts on that.

Again, thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
I also posted this on Trip advisor but didn't receive much reponse.
