My boyfriend and I had the idea of driving the scenic route from Germany to Italy after two months of hiding out in the very South of Germany watching the snow fall as the days tick by.
We started to get a bit of cabin fever to say the least and decided we needed to go on a drive. I never realized how exciiiting Europe is until we had this opportunity to pull out the map and decide where to drive to. It was between Paris and Venice for me, i’m a sucker for the romantic cities, and in the end we decided on Venice because the drive was seemingly shorter and we could find parking easier in Venice than Paris we assumed.
My boyfriend is the smart one here and realized we would have to pay tolls in Austria and Italy that would total to 36 euros each way. To save the 70 euros, he spent 2 hours of mapping to plan our toll-free, scenic route.
Driving the scenic route from Germany to Italy was a beautiful trip that I can’t wait to share with you. Here is my photo diary of driving the scenic route from Germany to Italy:
