1. Yes, during week days, IF you leave very early, do not expect to visit the interior of the castles. Avoid 15-18th of August. 15th of August is national day, so it will be crowded.
2. No, if you want to visit the castles and the places around or even have a lunch. On Transfagarasan you can visit Cetatea Poienari, a fortress related to Vlad the Impaler.

Hi Mike! If you hire a car it’s possible to do Peles and Bran in one day (once again, during the week, not the weekend when all the access roads to these areas are full with traffic jams). Transfagarasan is also doable in one day, but also by car and if you leave Bucharest very early. If you go by train, then Sinaia/Peles and/or Brasov (Brasov is on the same route, only about an hour further away from Sinaia).

Yes, but it should be during working days, Monday - Thursday, otherwise it will be really crowded. Also, you should start your trip really early. Have fun

It is possible if you have a good car/driver. And you start your journey at 05.00 a.m./sunrise/dawn... Do not expect to be back before 11.00 p.m.
Good luck and drive safely.
