Driving back from Italy

With my rental Audi, it was time to drive back home to Germany.  I did enjoy the Audi a lot and really pushed the car to the limit.

Roman Pantheon - I love this building.  There's something special in a building that has a whole on top and has been standing here since the Roman times.

Tuscan Landscape

Some photos of the Tuscan landscape on my Italian roadtrip.

Going down to Italy I stopped by Florence.  Funny thing was I didn't know the Italian name and had only German and Italian maps with me.  After that I started writing down the local names when traveling.

Italian Road Trip

Back in 2008, I rented a Audi A3, with only 3km on the odometer.  The clutch was stiff, and everything new.

I took it down to Tuscany, drove around on the small side street and passing hill-top villages, visiting Rome, Florence, Siena and finally coming back North though the Brenner Pass in Austria.

3000km and 7 days later, I retuned the car.  Happy and with the broken-in clutch.
