3 Months in Europe: Paris, Italy, and Croatia - How long to stay and where?

Jump to last reply

My family has the amazing opportunity to travel to Europe for 3+ months (April, May, June/early July). It is me, my husband and 4 year old son. Our goal is to experience the culture and dive into the places we visit more deeply than just checking off must-see tourist sites. We want to feel the rhythm of the places we see and also make this trip something our young son can enjoy.

We are getting ready to start reserving accommodations, and have the following itinerary planned so far and welcome any suggestions you may have about how long to stay.

FRANCE
Paris: 3 wks, 21 nights
(Decided to skip French Riviera, would love suggestions on how to see "French Country Side, perhaps a day road trip)

ITALY
Cinque Terre (we're thinking Monterosso or Le Spezia): 1 wk, 7 nights
Florence: 3 wks
Rome: 2 wks
Amalfi Coast: 1 wk
Bari: 10 nights

CROATIA
Dubrovnik: 10 nights

Thank you fellow travelers!
~The Jarvis Family
