Ideas for late September '08 trip to Cental Europe?

Hello - I'm again in early planning stages for a trip with DH for the fall of '08. The first itinerary idea is to begin in Prague, travel down to Vienna, (stopping along the way) then to Croatia and end in Venice. I hope 14 days will be enough time but if you think not, pls let me know. After driving through northern italy, I'm hoping that we can take the train more on this trip. I'm looking for input on places to stop, stay, see along the route or if you have other suggestions. OUr interests are good food, good wine, good scenery and a taste of culture. thanks!

If you sub Slovenia for Croatia it will work. Croatia takes 2 weeks by itself. Because of rental problems in those locations I would ride the trains this time. I would do 4-3-3-4 and see Lake Bled as a day trip from Ljubljana. Those 4 destinations will take all of your days.

Thanks Bob - to make sure I understand...4 days in Prague, 3 days in Vienna, 3 days in Slovenia and 4 days in Venice? Not to slight Venice but we've been there the past two years for 3 and 4 days at a time. I was planning to just see the guggenheim, overnight and fly home from there. If we don't do 4 days in venice, how would you swizzle the time??

OK--to plan B:
Prague---5 nites--with a day trip to one of the spa towns[Karslbad?]
Train to Vienna---3 nites
Train to Ljubjana---3 nites with day trip to Lake Bled
Get car---drive to Piran on coast---see Postjana[sp] caves enroute.--2 nites
Drop car at Koper---taxi to Trieste[30E]--train to Venice--last nite

I may have lost count, but you get the idea. We have done all of this on 2 seperate trips. Have fun !

Hmmm ! I just thought that you could also touch into Croatia by driving to Pula in the Istria region of Croatia instead of Piran and still drop the car at Koper.
