The more exotic destinations of the longer tour proposed for 2019 have certainly raised a lot of interest but also some nervousness about the amount of driving involved. For this reason the planned route has been shortened resulting in a manageable average daily drive of less than 200 miles.
The plan is now to take the car train from Dusseldorf to Innesbruck. We will then drive through Austria and the Dolomites, Slovenia and down the Adriatic coast to stay in Dubrovnik for 2 nights. After taking the overnight ferry to Ancona we will cross the Apennines into Umbria and travel through Tuscany and the La Spezia coast through Northern Ital. Then over the Alps into France and home with two rest days along the way. This would shorten the route to around 2000 miles driven in 11 days plus 4 rest days, 15 days in total.
