Then, make your way through northern Italy, staying in both Florence and Venice, giving you as much time as possible to soak up the Italian summer sun and good life. After Italy you’ll head to Austria, enjoying a leisurely drive through one of the world’s most picturesque places, stopping at Italy’s largest lake, Lake Garda on route to the Austrian Alps. Spend time in the Austrian mountains breathing in that fresh alpine air before you head underground and discover the remarkable Salt Mines.
