2 1/2 weeks: Is this crazy?

Jump to last reply

The wife and I are going to Europe for 17 nights at the end of July/beginning of August. I went on a 9 county, 2 week tour of Europe when I was 17 (I'm not 34 and my wife is 32). My wife has never been. We started with a ridiculous itinerary, that included about 10 places. I still think our itinerary is a bit too busy and overly ambitious. Here's where we're at right now along with the reasons we want to go to each place:

Copenhagen, 2 nights: Eating at Noma is what started this whole trip. We've wanted to eat here for a long time.
Switzerland (Jungfrau region), 2 nights: I am an avid hiker and love mountains.
Rome, 4 nights: Art, Vatican.
Florence, 3 nights: Art. I've wanted to see Il Duomo since I was a kid.
Cinque Terre (probably Manarola), 1 night: Looks beautiful. We want to drive the Rivieras.
Monte Carlo, 1 night: Break up the drive and stay somewhere ritzy
Paris, 4 nights: Art, the wife loves the idea of Paris, romance, etc.

We plan on flying from Copenhagen to Zurich, then driving to Grindelwald. Then driving to Milan and flying to Rome. Train from Rome to Florence. Drive the Italian and French Rivieras to Marseille and fly to Paris.

This is a lot of traveling, I know. I keep trying to talk myself out of Copenhagen but really don't want to miss Noma. The only place I've been is Paris. We don't mind driving and enjoy road trips in the states. I would appreciate some input and/or suggestions. Thank you.
