Long Drive: Austria to Italy

Travel Date:

Saturday, 24th May 2014

For the past few days, I usually woke up at around 4:00 am. Not much to pack since we only stayed for 1 night at the hotel. We had our breakfast at KONRADS Restaurant, who served another satisfying meal. Left at Hilton Innsbruck Hotel at around 08:00 am.

Glided through the Europa Bridge in Innsbruck, Tirol, Austria measures 623 feet high / 190 meters high and 650 feet long. Drove through the Alps via Brenner Pass, a mountain pass which situated in between the border of Austria and Italy.

We arrived at Verona, Italy at lunch time. We stayed there for a couple of hours to do another sightseeing walking tour in this fair city. You may find more our first Italian experience in Verona in the next few articles.

From Verona, we headed to Per Venizia (Port of Venice) to sail. See more thrilled moments as we explore the romantic islands of Venice in the next article.
