car tour in april

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are trying to find ways to get around in Italy & Germany. We will fly out of US on April 16 arriving April 17 somewhere...do not have tickets yet.

This is our first and only trip to Europe so we want to do a lot in a short time. We will be in country from the 17th-27th

This is what we want to do:

Rent a car to drive on Nurburg Ring, only date available is the 22nd.

So before or after we get there we want to go to Porsche factory and museum, and Mercedes museum, which the Porsche factory has to be during the week.

Go to Bologna and do the tours there, spending 1 or 2 days?

And spend 3-4 days in Venice.

I am looking at flying into Stuttgart on the 17th, going to Porsche one day and Mercedes the next, then traveling to Nurnburg Ring to rent a car to drive on the 22nd. (only day available) what is the best way to get there? Rental car, train, fly? We don't know about the roads, we would like to see the country but not spend all the time driving. The train rides I found are longer than driving time by my estimates? Are there airlines that do short flights, I keep finding ones to Amsterdam or Frankfurt and we still have a long distance to drive? Can we fly straight from Stuttgart to Cologne?

And then when we leave Nurmburg we want to go to Bologna for a car tour and then finish in Venice. It appears we need to take a train from Bologna to Venice, as I could not find a direct flight. We can fly out from Venice to US thru Amsterdam.

Any suggestions would be great, as to names of airlines, schedules...
Thanks, Sandy
