Berlin to Rome by Car

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 with two young adult daughters and planning a trip to Europe. My daughters are especially interested in Germany and its history. Also we thought we like to see a little Switzerland and alps etc and charming Italy. We love food, countrysides, great scenery, perhaps a little adventure activity/trekking etc, and I am an avid nature/landscape photographer. While we like to spend time in the countryside we also want to take in the great city sights of Berlin, Florence and Rome etc.

We have 17 nights/18 days in total and I made a tentative plan from Berlin to Rome as follows and appreciate any tips and advice. Any other alternate route suggestions? Is this too much places to cover? Perhaps I should drop Venice or Amalfi and spend more time in other places. Appreciate all advice.

The plan as follows:
Day1 - Arrive Berlin by air and afternoon sightseeing and overnight in Berlin
Day 2 - Sightseeing a and overnight in Berlin
Day 3 - Rent car and drive to Nuremberg.
Day 4 - Sightseeing/Museums etc in Nuremberg
Day 5 - Full day drive and see along route to Interlaken Switzerland overnight in Interlaken
Day 6 - Sightseeing and activity in and around Interlaken overnight in Interlaken
Day 7 - Sightseeing and activity in and around Interlaken overnight in Interlaken
Day 8 - Full day drive to Como Italy overnight near Como
Day 9 - Drive to Venice Park car outside and overnight in Venice
Day 10 - Sightseeing in Venice in morning and drive to Florence (Tuscany) in afternoon overnight near Florence
Day 11 - Sightseeing in and around Florence (Tuscany)
Day 12 - Sightseeing in and around Florence (Tuscany)
Day 13 - Drive to Amalfi Coast and overnight in Amalfi Coast (Positano?)
Day 14 - Sightseeing in and around Amalfi Coast
Day 15 - Sightseeing relaxation in and around Amalfi Coast
Day 16 - Drive to Rome and return car in Rome
Day 17 - Sightseeing in Rome
Day 18 - Flight home from Rome airport
