Please give tips, comments, and recommendations regarding methods of travel, where to stay, where to eat, etc. A friend will be picking up a 4 series so we will have a car for one mode of transportation.

Thank you in advance!!
Day 1-3 Munich (SC) Hotel Leonardo is awesome, I highly recommend it. Underground parking, close to BMW Welt, and has an amazing breakfast buffet. There is a Thai restaurant called "Yum". It is amazing, reserve far ahead. Very important * They have special pricing for BMW Welt customers @ hotel Leonardo, I didn't get to take advantage of this when I picked up mine.

Day 3-5 Stuttgart (SC) Hotels anywhere near the center are fine. The U-Bahn makes it really easy to get around. If you want recommendations for Stuttgart, PM me and I will give you my personal list. Visit the castle in Ludwigsburg, I'm not really a tour guy but my sister dragged me on it and I had a really good time.

Day 5-8 Zurich (SC everywhere) Interesting city, check it out. Make sure and stop at the border and get a vignette (autobahn toll sticker for Switzerland)

Day 8-10 Milano (my favorite little town around Milano is Busto Arsitzio, pretty cool spot)

Day 11-13 Prague Raddison Blu in Prauge is amazing. Underground parking too. The hotel chef has a Michelin star or two? Either way, the entire dining experience was excellent. The city is really lively and there is a lot to see. I will be going again sometime soon.

Day 13-14 Munich (SC) Fly out!

*SC= Speed Cameras - be careful out there...

The drive from Milan to Prague is pretty long. I had Paris as that destination but I really didn't enjoy France that much. For me, Prague was much cooler. Maybe the south of France would be a better option. Check Virtualtourist or some travel site for reviews.

You don't need to go down to Rome to get the "Italian" experience. Milano is amazing and has a lot of great dining options.

Lastly, you may want to shuffle the order of the trip into something that makes more sense logistically.
