Hi there is also a way to share a car with a traveler going in your direction. you can go to this site http://www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de/ and find people that are traveling to Munich and share their car expanses. I once traveled to Munich for as low as 30 euro :) over 6 years ago
Going to Rome with 2 grown daughters, where can we go for shopping, local people watching, and wine ?
Well it depends what do you want to shop. Here is a website where you can find valuable information and suggestions about shopping and restaurants - http://www.rome.info/shopping/ One of the places to go shopping is Piazza di Spagna. There are a lot of botiques there to choose from. As for the Wine you can try some of those two Antico Forno Roscioli, via dei Giubbonari 21. 22, Phone: 06/6875287 Trimani, via Goito 20, Phone: 06/4469661 http://www.rome.info/restaurants/#wine over 6 years ago
