Possible Itinerary in Romania?

Jump to last reply

I had a thread on the Painted Monastaries but decided to start a new one for our possible schedule.

We still haven't booked flights but are very close to doing so. We cannot add another day on. Here is the rough schedule we've come up with focusing on Transylvania and the Painted Monastaries. Right now we plan to fly in and out of Targu Mures. We could fly to or from Bucharest but I think Targu Mures fits our schedule better. This trip is planned for June (departing June 15) so we should have plenty of daylight each day.
There are 4 of us in our family. 2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 11.

Thursday night – drive to hotel near airport (we live in England)
Friday – fly to Romania, arrive around 1pm, drive to painted monasteries area - about 300km, 4.5 hours - HOTEL 1
Saturday – painted monasteries – HOTEL 1
Sunday – painted monasteries – HOTEL 1
Monday – LONG drive to Brasov area – take road through Bicaz Gorge on the way for photos - arrive in Brasov – about 340km – about 5 hours – HOTEL 2
Tuesday – Brasov area (perhaps Black Church, Rasnov Fortress – Prejmer with octagonal church is just 12 km away, Harman fortified church is 5 miles away )– HOTEL 2
Wednesday – Bran/Walachia (30km – 40 min from Brasov) – HOTEL 2
Thursday – perhaps Sinaia – Peles Palace (48km, 50 minutes from Brasov) – open to suggestions here – some places from Tuesday? – HOTEL 2
Friday – drive to Poenari Castle (this is a must stop for our son) – climb – allow an hour just to climb - and then more time to visit and come back down – anything else here? – continue drive and stay near Sighisoara
(Drive from Brasov to Poenari Castle is 155km, 2.5 hours)
(Drive from Poenari to Sighisoara is around 180 km, 2.5 hours)
Saturday – Sighisoara (citadel, clock tower, weapons museum, church on the hill and more – vlad’s birthplace ) – perhaps also visit Biertan (walled church UNESCO site- 30 minutes away – probably no time but listing just in case)– continue on to hotel near/at airport (drive to airport is about 60km – 1 hour away)
Sunday – early morning flight out

Can someone please take a look and let me know what they think? There are a few places we are missing on this schedule that we would have liked to fit in but we don't want to feel rushed. They are: Sibiu, Snagov Monastery (supposed burial place of Vlad Tepes), and Targoviste. If we could fit one or more of them in by using Bucharest airport at one end of the trip I'd be interested to hear anyone's ideas. However, we'd prefer not to be driving somewhere new every day if possible.

I've also posted distances I got from the web and approximate drive times. If those are way off can someone please let me know?

Thanks for taking a look.
