Italy, The Beauty & Wonder, June-July 2023

Car rental or Train or maybe Both? Any recommendations?

I'm planning a trip through Italy in June and July. I'm a single guy semi-retired and I love Europe. I'm from the east coast of America and recently returned from a sailing trip in Croatia and Greece. I'm a non-smoker, healthy, active, and have no baggage or hangups. I hope to travel by car and train starting in Milan and working my way south to Sicilia. I plan to use BnBs and hotels and expect to cover much of the cost. My dates are flexible. Reply to this

Hi Sailor1,
I was several times in Italy and if you want to visit the big cities like
- Milan
- Venezia
- Bologna
- Florence
- Rome
- Naples
as I did in the past I would recommend the train. Then you only need one ticket for yourself, don't have to bother with parking or traffic and the mentionned cities aere all connected via high speed trains. Just to the south of Italy and over to Sicily the trains are slower and also if you want to visit more rural areas. Check out Interrail or Eurrail pass for only one country. In my blog you find information about the country in German but you can enjoy the photos or use auto-translate.
Have a nice journey,

I would like to add something:
Weather in june and july in Italy will be hot. Especially in the south. So fine for bathing but notso good for cultural city trips. Reply to this

Honestly, I'd avoid driving in Italy...especially in old city centers or big cities...use the trains...more convenient.. Reply to this
