HELP! Alps - 10 Days by car

by akis3k


Hi there - greetings!

Could you help us? My wife and I are planning to fly to Vienna this Saturday, rent a car and spend 10 days mainly in the ALPS in Austria, Italy, France and Switzerland.

Could you be so kind as to suggest a really good route/car itinerary/experience you had there?

Also, what is a must see and do? What is to avoid? What is there economical to buy? What did you love and what did you hate?

Looking forward to your response asap.

Best wishes for your travels this year too!

I agree with the last poster - you'll be hard pushed to cover all 4 countries.
I would leave France out of the equation
Driving holidays are such a persnao hing that it's hard to recommend any particular routes or journies, but if it were me I'd want to spend some time away from the car.
Here is one solution but there are so man more:-
Day 1
Drive from Vienna to Cortina D'Ampesso/Italian Dolomites.(apprx 6 hours journey)
Two nights/1 full day in Cortina
Day 3
Cortina D Ampesso to Madonna di Campiglio/Italian Brenta Dolomites - take the scenic route through the Val Gardena (approx 3 1/2 hours journey)
Two nights/1full day in Madonna di Campiglio
Day 5
Madonna di Campiglio to St.Moritz/Switzerland - take the route along the southern edge of the Stelvio National Park (approx 3 hours)
Two nights/1 full day in St Moritz(recommend you stop outside St.Mortiz - much cheaper)
Day 7
St Moritz to Salzburg/Austria - try to get some time in Berchtesgaden/Germany
Approx 4 1/2 hours)
2 nights/ 1 full day
Day 9
Return to Vienna and 1 night stop over.

I just wish to point out that although Cortina d'Ampezzo is in a very scenic location it is THE most expensive place in Italy. There are other towns and villages in that region where it is much cheaper to stay.

For what it's worth, there is a very nice 3 star hotel in Cortina - Hotel Olimpia.
I stayed there two years running, but not in the summer months.
You should ne able to get a room in the summer for around 100 Euros per night.
However, this is only bed and breakfast.
Eating out in Cortina IS exepnsive.

I just happened to hear recently on the Italian TV that also this year Cortina is no. 1 in the list of the most expensive holiday resorts.

Travel Tips for Florence

Florence's heart!

by Laura_Mexico

This city is great cause it's so small and it allows you to walk around and have many nice views. It's less crowded than Rome (at least in June it was) and it's a peaceful and enchanting place. You can start your tour in Piazza della Signoria (Signoria square) and walk to the many museums, restaurants and attractions around. You can get free maps and information about the town in the tourism information offices, which are located either in the train station or spread around the town.

Like shoes?

by CourtneyLyn

The Salvatore Ferragamo museum houses some of the world's most famous shoes. The museum has shoes dating back to the 1920s, worn by many famous actresses and actors like Sophia Loren and Katharine Hepburn. You would never think shoes could be so interesting.

Via Tornabuoni

by ForestqueenNYC about Ferragamo, Versace, Armani, Dior, Gucci, et al

Via Tornabuoni has some of the most fashionable and expensive stores in the world. Probably will not appeal to the younger crowd because these stores cater to an older group and therefore the styles tend to be a bit conservative.

Florence has great train...

by rozehill

Florence has great train station,Stazione S. Maria Novella
The Italian trains are very good, don't have to be expensive, so if you have plenty of time but not plenty of money you can get a cheap fare for the trains which stop at all the wee towns before your destination.

Café – it wasn’t very cold...

by vysnaite

Café – it wasn’t very cold while being in Florence that day, but my body was craving for something warm and sweet (As usual), so we decided to go for coffee to cafeteria, and after some wandering found really a very nice one, it’s impossible not to notice it, cute place, we thought costs will be bigger than around, but it was even cheeper than at some places on the way.
