By car:
The fastest route is via Germany, Switzerland (via Basel, beautiful route!) and pass the border through the Gotthard at Como. An overnight stay around Lugano in Switzerland is a good distance, however: Switzerland is quite pricey. Right across the border near Como it is also good to relax. From there it is still about 500 kilometers to Passignano. Another option is via Austria (Dusseldorf, Wurzburg, Fussen, Fernpass,)

Tips for accommodation via Austria
