Germant to Italy Travel

So a friend and I are planning on flying into Munich on March 27th and flying out on April 5th. During that time we’d like to go to Florence and possibly Rome. I am having a hard time figuring out what is the most cost effective route to take transportation wise. Plane tickets from Germany to Italy aren’t too bad. It seems a waste to get a EuroPass, renting a car isn’t too bad either but from what I’ve read it’s a pain to deal with parking and map reading, road rules, etc. So…any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

Berlin to Frankfurt- Erfurt

Hi all.
I have been planning my trip for the summer of 09 and have just found out I have three or four more days I can add to my trip. I will be in Berlin for five days, then was looking at Erfurt on the way to Frankfurt where my plane will be leaving to come back to the US.

Question about where Eurail passes are valid

I am interested in buying a France-Germany-Italy Eurail pass and going from Venice-Munich by train with it. I realize I would have to pass through Austria for this, however I once read somewhere that Salzburg, Austria is included in with Germany’s railpass, and this would be the city that the train would pass through, I imagine. Does this mean I can use the pass without having to buy an extra part to cover the Austria leg?
The Salzburg being incl.
