Romania in the Fall (1st Time)

Jump to last reply

After much discussion, my husband and I have decided to do a Black Sea trip in the fall to Romania, Istanbul, and the Crimea. I thought I would start with the Romania portion first (since that seems to be the most difficult). 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 Cluj-Napoca (2 nights) -- St Michael’s Church, Pharmaceutical Museum, night at the opera (Hungarian Opera House)

Arrange for a car and driver -- have contacted Discover Romania and Tours of Romania (Compass) -- any thoughts on who to use?

Drive to Sighetu Marmatiei with stops at villages such as Remetea,Chioarului, Giulesti, and Berbesti on the way.

Sighetu Marmatiei -- 2 nights here with a side trip to the Merry Cemetery in Sapanta.

Rural homestay -- 1 night in a village like Ieud, include visits to Barsana Monastery, Poienile Izie, and plum brandy distillerie

Drive to Suceava area -- 2 nights in the vicinity to see the Painted Churches

Drive to Sighisoara -- thru Bicas Gorge with stop at Red Lake, and perhaps stop at Praid salt mines. From here on we will travel on our own.

Sighisoara (2 nights)

Train to Brasov (3 nights) -- day trips to Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress (by public bus)

Car and driver to Bucharest with stops at Peles Castle in Sinaia and Rhein Cellars in Azuga (sparkling wine)

Bucharest (2 nights)

I greatly appreciate any suggestions, particularly regarding the car and driver. Thanks!
