Spain-France-Germany-Austria-Italy on snow/ice free roads early April
I am doing a trip from Lagos to Morocco for the rally de gazelles
. Only spending 2-3 days at the rally though and plan to cross over to Europe for a few days then return to Morocco.
My route from Morocco;
Ferry from Tangier to Barcelona
Barcelona to Bilboa
over to Pau (France)
Issue is how to cross from Austria into Italy on clear roads in April. Not looking good on the maps.
On paper, I have two options
Abort German/Austria leg. From Paris, head down to Lyon-Marselleile-Cannes- then Genoa in Italy for a ferry back to Tangier
Or from Mattighoffen, head to
Vienna then find a route through Eastern Austria/Western Hungary to avoid the mountains
and cross over near the coast into Italy then head to Genoa for ferry rendezvous.
My key stops are;
if no reasonable route(s) from Austria to Italy for the time of year, I will skip the the post Paris stops and just head south-east from Paris
Routing advice welcome.
