When we travelled Italy we based ourselves in one town (staying from 3 - 7 nights) and used this as a base to travel north/south/east/west to visit areas i.e. Sienna in Tuscany, Montefalco in Umbria staying on farms.
I was wondering which areas would be suitable for this in Austria? (not necessarily farm stays). We will have a vehicle from Vienna and travelling along the Danube towards Salzburg and then Innsbruck before heading into lower Germany.
We love the countryside and experiencing small towns with lots of character. My thoughts to start with were Krems, Grein, Melk, Linz? Not sure? However we will only have about 12 days to do this.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
Thanking you, Chris
