We are 2 60+ year olds driving from UK to Crete at the end of April and want to spend 5 nights whilst travelling from Calais to Ancona.
We don't want to stay in cities but have broken the journey roughly
1. Calais to Cologne area
2. Cologne to Heidelberg area
3. Heidelberg to Munich area
4. Munich to Verona
5. Verona to Bologna/Ancona
We will use the motorways most of the time but would like to visit places en route to break up the monotony and visit scenic areas/
castles etc. Any suggestions please?
