Two Weeks in Europe - September

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are going on a two week trip this year in late September through early October. It will be our first time in Europe. We already booked our tickets where we will fly in and out of Munich. We have an idea of all the places we want to hit up, but I thought I would throw our ideas out there and see if anyone has any advise.

We plan to rent a car and do our entire trip in a car so we have more freedom to go where and when we please. That way we don't have to rely on train schedules and what not. We will be getting the car rental in Munich and dropping off in Munich, even thought we are going to multiple countries. We are aware of the required insurance and international driver's license for Italy, so that's not an issue for us.

We are planning to stay at bed and breakfasts or a private room in a house/apartment so we can get the full European experience and learn some culture along the way. I know this is a lot (as most newbs do), but I wanted to get other thoughts on this itinerary.

Day 1: Arrive in Munich
Day 2: Munich
Day 3: Munich
Day 4: Drive from Munich through Austria to Venice
Day 5: Venice 1/2 day / Drive from Venice to Rome
Day 6: Rome
Day 7: Rome / day drive to Pompeii
Day 8: Drive from Rome to Florence
Day 9: Florence
Day 10: Drive to Pisa 1/2 day / Drive to Genoa
Day 11: Genoa / Drive to Zurich
Day 12: Zurich
Day 13: Drive to Munich
Day 14: Leave Munich

Now that you have an idea of what we want to do, let the comments roll in!!
