So me and my hubby are going on a brief roadtrip in Europe. We both have quite short vacations and want to see as much as possible and hope that with a lot of good planning in beforehand we will be able to visit all of these places and see as much as possible. Can anyone please provide some input whether you have been to a similar roadtrip, any advice or tips?
This is our travel plan:
Day 1: Arriving in Munich 12.30, pick up the rented car at 13.00 at the airport, spend the rest of the day in munich
Day 2: Drive from Munich -> Füssen & Neuschwanstein Castle -> Liechtenstein -> Zürich
Day 3: Drive from Zürich -> Lucerne & Mt. Pilatus -> Bern -> Genève -> Lyon
Day 4: Drive from Lyon -> Marseille
Day 6: Drive from Milano -> La Spezia -> Pisa -> Firenze
Day 7: Drive from Firenze -> Roma
Day 10: Drive from Salzburg to Munich Airport.
I've listed the things we want to see/do at each place, so we have a timely plan. I've also made sure that my overnight reservations are located in areas where there's parking included or a parking lot in walking distance and also relatively close to metro stations in bigger cities, so that we easily can just take a metro in to the city centre. I think that by planning it so much and making sure we know where to go and what to do that we save a lot of time that we usually would throw away by looking for parking lots and locations. We don't have a big list set for each place, its just a few must-do things. In places like Cannes and Nice, its just driving by, stopping to take a couple of pictures and then drive on... and in Liechtenstein its just driving through the country on our way to Zürich, maybe a short picknik lunch at the road-side or something...
