Need advice for 10 day road trip from Naples, Italy to Salzburg, Austria

If you had only 10 days to drive (or take the train) from Naples, Italy, ending up in Salzburg, Austria, what would you say were the do not miss cities along the way?

Ok..in order...Naples, Rome, Florence, Verona, Venice, Ljubljana and then, up to Salzburg over the Grossglockner Pass. Six cities in 10 days? That's a lot. If I have to get rid of one, I would choose Verona. Many would say Ljubljana, but I like to see the contrast of cultures!

Cheers,
Jan from Ljubljana!

Interesting question. I would drive and make it a point to avoid any CITY.
In order, south to north, I would see:
Orvieto
Siena--3 nites
Assisi--2 nites
Castelrotto/Dolomites
Oberammergau--3 nites
That is my kind of trip. You will have a drop charge on the car, but that goes with the territory.

Bob the Navigator has told you what HIS kind of trip is, but your question asked about not-to-miss cities along the way.

Will you have time in Naples that is not included in the 10 days? If so, you will have probably seen Naples and Pompeii.

Is this your first trip to Italy? Then I would suggest the "big three" (there are fairly good reasons WHY they are the "big three").

Three days each in Rome, Florence and Venice, one day to drive to Salzburg.

Hi maggi,

If you want to drive, I suggest going to www.viamichelin.com and www.mappy.com and looking for the "No Tolls" routes.

Thanks for all your quick responses! I see that Pompei is nearby - is that a "must see"? Is it worth the time for them to visit Capri (specifically the Blue Grotto?)

Whether to go to Capri or not is to some extent a question of when the trip is taking place. The Blue Grotto is not accessible if the water is high for any reason.

As far as I am concerned, I would not take time to go to Capri or to the Blue Grotto.

But if you go to Pompeii, I would also suggest taking in the National Archeological Museum in Naples, where almost all the artworks from Pompeii and Herculaneum are preserved.
