My questions and concerns are:

a. Logistically, does this itinerary look okay to you? Any suggestions or changes in the order of cities we're planning to visit?

b. Should we, say, instead of taking overnight train to Prague (from Krakow), goto Vienna instead?

c. Are we doing the right thing by flying to Krakow from Paris? Or should we take the train to Krakow instead? Time is not an issue for us.

d. I am not sure if I've allotted enough time at Zermatt? Is one day enough for Matterhorn?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Cheers,
Sri
