Thanks all.

Got back yesterday afternoon.

Trip log is in my sig. It's pretty extensive. I tried to keep it updated as we went along. Haven't pulled pics off the camera yet.

Had an amazing time. Weather was amazing by and large; if a little cooler than expected. Didn't get to cross the Grossglockner because of foggy snow/rain, and it rained the first night we were in Venice while trying to find dinner, and it rained while driving through the Val d'Orcia south of Florence when I wanted to get some of the eponynous "Tuscany" landscape pics. Overall, not bad for 2 full weeks.

Top Tip: if you're not completely sold on actually _sleeping_ in Venice, try Marghera (we stayed at the "Casa Villa Gardenia," about 100yds from the train station) and taking the EUR1.5 train ride into Venice. We had secured, private, free parking for the 2 nights we were there, and didn't have to schlep _any_ luggage through Venice proper.

-MrB

Delivery Day

Congrats on a beautiful car. My wife, 1 yr old son, & I will be doing our 1st Ed this September. 2014 535d xdrive.

For part of our 2 wk trip, we're staying 3 nts in Venice then 4 nts in Florence, including a Side trip out of Florence 1 day along Chianti Wine Trail ss222.

Do u have any suggestions for small towns ~1/2 way between Venice & Florence? (1/2 way pit stop/lunch).

General Italy driving/navigating through the ztl tips?

Stop for a nice lunch in Ferarra and take a quick stroll through Palazzo Schifanoia to see some of the most amazing frescos in Italy! You will likely be the only one there and they are outdoors in a courtyard; perfect for a 1 yr old in a stroller.
