Munich is the capital of Bavaria and is known worldwide for Oktoberfest, a festival that takes place between September and October, with a mission to celebrate the passion these people have for the beer. The festival, which this year ends on October 3, takes place during two weeks in the Theresienwiesen, a site located 10 minutes from downtown where you get up tents that house bars, restaurants, music venues and spaces for dance.

If you do not arrive during the Oktoberfest, Munich also offers many other attractions (good beer there all year and everywhere) and the Gothic church of Our Lady, the Olympic city, museums Kunstareal area and the elegant stores Maximilianstr street fashion. During the tour can not fail to try «fast food» typical of Munich, which is the Weisswurst, a white sausage that is served with a Brezno (equal to the pretzel) and a huge glass of wheat beer.

Passing through the spectacular scenery of the Austrian mountains, the route from Munich to Italy goes through Innsbruck, the Tyrolean capital of culture, a site that seems to be the set of a Disney film, ideal for a short visit. The ride to Pisa is 720 kilometers (41 euros toll), but in this case it is done in two stages, for a day (or a couple) in the incomparable Florence.

After passing through Innsbruck, the route passes through places such as Verona (it has an impressive historic center, with a Roman amphitheater, a multitude of churches of different styles and Juliet’s house, where he was wooed by Romeo as Shakespeare) and Bologna ( the second largest historical center of Italy, famous for being one of the best places to eat in the whole country). And then goes into the landscape of Tuscany, one of the most suggestive of the Earth, which combines hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, ancient haciendas Renaissance and magenta sun that shines as anywhere in the world.

Florence is the historical and emotional capital of Tuscany, a place where they still felt that constant search for beauty that was the Renaissance. Its emblem is the largest church of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi’s masterpiece, located on the Piazza del Duomo, which is the starting point for any tour of the city.

In a short stay can not miss places like the Uffizi Gallery (one of the oldest and largest art galleries in the world), the Ponte Vecchio, the Galleria dell’Accademia (where Michelangelo’s David) and some of the many ice cream shops downtown, where the «gelatto» reaches height of art. A tip: avoid the fall visit to Florence in the European summer, when overflowing with tourists.

Bon voyage!
