Trip Report Really late trip report, June 2009

Jump to last reply

So yes I'm behind, but fodors helped me plan our honeymoon vacation to Italy and Germany last year so I figure I should at least post a little about it. I finally finished a travbuddy site about our trip here http://www.travbuddy.com/travel-blogs/70275/road-1

There are photos and the writing is what we each wrote in our diaries everyday while over there and I have to admit my husband typed it up and I haven't read it since I wrote the entries so I apoligize if there is bad grammar/spelling.

The trip ended up looking like this: 3 nights in Sankt Goar, nighttrain to Milan, 1 night in Milan, 4 nights in Vernazza, 5 nights in Rome, 1 night Bologna, 5 nights in Munich, 4 nights in Berlin, 3 nights in Amsterdam, and 1 night in Cologne.

My favorite things/places were:
1. Vernazza: I would never have left if we weren't going to Rome! The food was amazing and the hiking gorgeous. We talk about going back for our 10th Anniversary (yes we plan ahead!) about every month. We stayed in the hotel La Mala, and while a splurge it was so worth it, we had room 31 I believe.

2. Scavi Tour in Rome: well worth the effort to book it

3. Munich: We loved the laid back feeling and all the history of Munich. The food was also great and there are tons of daytrip opportunities. My husband also enjoyed the beer.

4. Burg Eltz: I loved the outside of the castle and the walk from the train staion in Moselkern.

5. Milano Duomo: While Milan itself was not the most exciting the Duomo was amazing. The best part was going up on the roof.

6. Food: we both like food a lot, especially when traveling, both German and Italian food was great, we only had 2 bad meals in the days we spent in those countries. Now I just wish they had tap water at restaurants so I could drink that instead of Coke...

Least favorite
1. Amsterdam- we enjoyed it but found 3 days too much for us and the food uninteresting. We are glad we went but probably wouldn't go back.

2. The night train to Berlin ending before Berlin. They woke us up at about 5 am and told us to get off. We weren't supposed to arrive until 6:30 and found out we were about a 45 minute regional train ride away, we ended up getting on the regional train without a ticket because we were mad they left us in the middle of nowhere!

We are also planning a trip for next Fall to Oktoberfest, Austria, Budapest, and Poland so I will probably be asking some questions in a few months.
