Itinerary – 16 days by car through italy

Feels like only yesterday I shared with you my thoughts before a trip. And now the 16 days in italy with the car are already behind me again. my first real road trip took me to many great places and gave me a lot of adventures, about which i will of course report in detail in the next few weeks. But first of all, so that you know what I have to tell you, I would like to show you my route in advance.

It started in the night from friday to saturday. On 4. June 2016 i got into the car at half past one, entered the first destination into my navi and started my road trip, still slightly tired but full of anticipation.

Around 700 kilometers lay ahead. the first stage through switzerland down to lago maggiore was one of the longer ones of the trip. Most of the time I "only" drove about 200 kilometers a day. in the next few days she visited the cinque terre, pisa, lake bolsena and rome.

The longest stay I had then in naples, the southernmost point of the route. 5 days i spent there to visit the many great places like the islands of capri and ischia. Otherwise, I have always stayed only one or two nights in one accommodation.

After 12 days my way from naples led me north again for quite a distance. I had to cover over 500 kilometers to get to bologna. Afterwards I went to lake garda and venice, before I drove home on the great dolomite road. not only because of the traffic jam on the brennerautobahn this was by far the longest distance i had to cover. Only after 13 hours and about 1.000 kilometers i could park the car at home.

Below you can find an overview of the different stages and the places I visited during the 16 days.
