Yep, if you are looking for a cute little town, try Oberammergau. You can also drive by Etal (and stop by the monestary and brewery), and then take the gorgeous road from Ettal to Reute. It will...

Hope it worked out for you. I have a friend in our local club that got a bill for ~$1,000 for violating the terms of his rental by taking the car on the track. That was a pretty big shocker to get...

Daily rate: Well, once you have paid for 4 hours, you have paid for 24 hours. So the €20 car would cost €120 per day.

Yes, the dolomites are a much better driving road than the high passes.
