Planning road trip from Munich to Florence, advice?

Jump to last reply

My friend and I were planning to fly into Munich in January (found cheap flight), rent a car (found cheap rental) and roadtrip down the autobahn into Austria, cross over into Switzerland to get on the 13 south, stop in Lichtenstein for food/awesome passport stamp, back into Switzerland to continue south into Italy entering around Milan and go south from there to Florence. We'd then base in Florence for at least a week, and hopefully have another week to be somewhere else (thinking maybe Rome or southern France, but would be completely and totally open to new ideas)

So, idea right now is at least five countries and one car:
Germany
Austria
Switzerland
Lichtenstein
Italy

Between the two of us we speak fluent English and Spanish, rudimentary French, limited Italian, and a teeny bit of German. We can also drive stick shift. Mostly, we want to wander, see all the things, eat all the foods and get more passport stamps than a toilet seat gets ass, and see as much as we can in a two or three week period. Have absolutely no idea yet what we might be getting ourselves into in terms of border crossings, visas, odd traffic laws, etc. This trip is still in the very early planning stages and we're just looking for some advice.

Thanks!
