Survey - When to do a road trip - spring(May) or fall(Sept)?

Jump to last reply

We are starting to plan a 3-week road trip for next year. The proposed loop starts in Munich - Prague-Vienna-Budapest-Zagreb-Trieste-Venice-Innsbruck-Munich. We are seasoned drivers in Europe and have been to most of the locations except for Czech, Hungary & Croatia. All of our lodging will be planned & confirmed.

In 2011, we did a similar trip in May to France for 10 days. One of our best trips. Had a great time & no major surprises. Met a lot of great people, stayed in various types of lodgings & ate at wonderful restaurants. We've also driven in Italy, Greece, Germany, Austria & Switzerland. But always in May or June. Now we're thinking maybe fall.

So now I would like your opinion on when to do this new trip. Looking for plus & minuses. Thank you.
