Venice, then ?, then Munich

Jump to last reply

In July, my wife and I will be spending two weeks in Italy and Germany. We fly into Venice, and plan on spending at least three days there, most likely with a couple of days in Florence. At the end of the trip, 0n days 10-14, we're meeting my son & his new wife in Munich to tour around Bavaria. For the 4 or 5 day gap between Venice/Florence and Munich, I have some ideas, including:

1. Train from Venice or Florence to the South Tyrol, probably staying in the town of Merano. I've long wanted to go to this area of Italy, and we enjoy hiking quite a bit. Depending on whether we're traveling from Venice or Florence, we could probably make a stop in Verona to see a few sights along the way, without spending the night. Since the trains go into Bolzano, with a regional train then continuing to Merano, we could potentially spend a night in Bolzano before moving on to Merano the next day.

2. Fly from Venice to Berlin. We could then spend 2-3 days in Berlin, then take a train to Prague, for another 2-3 days, finally taking a train to Munich. Both are places that we've never been, and would like to visit.

Which would you pick? We haven't been to any of these places, except for Munich. If we go to South Tyrol, is it worth a one night stopover in Bolzano? Would you suggest something completely different?

I'm giving the edge to South Tyrol, mainly because we much prefer to travel by train. But are we missing out on something really special by avoiding Berlin & Prague just to avoid flying?
