3 week european Travel itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Thanks to those who have already given me some advice. I'm traveling to Europe for 3 weeks in July. My mother (who is 70) will be traveling with us. She is originally from Austria so she will be staying with family once we get to Austria. I will also be traveling with my 12 & 13 year old son and daughter. Below I have a tentative itinerary that I'd love some feedback on. I do not plan on getting a car at all, so I was planning on taking the trains everywhere (possibly fly from Paris to Munich/Innsbruck). Anything anyone would add or change? This will my kids' first trip to Europe. Thanks in advance for your help.

    With that many trains investigate some kind of railpass though the efficacy of that may be weather you take a train between Paris and Austria - a potentially expensive rail journey - you could take an overnight train (you could give you and your kids the perhaps romantic experience of an overnight train from Paris to Munich - arriving in Vienna about 9am) and whether you take the long day train ride from Lausanne to Naples (could here take an overnight train from Milan, Italy to Naples but not from Switzerland itself)

    anyway for lots of great info on European trains and passes I always spotlight these IMO fantastic sites - www.budgeteuropetravel.com; www.seat61.com; www.ricksteves.com.

    An alternative to a railpass (check out the Eurail Select Saverpass - the only one I would consider for your plans) you can get discounted tickets froml sites of national railways (like www.trenitalia.com for Italy) if you do no wish any flexibility as those limited in number seats must be booked weeks in advance to guarantee and then are typically mnon-changeable nor refundable - and keep in mind the Eurail Select Pass is first class which IME of years of taking European trains has significant benefits - especially for a family of 4 who wishes to easily find seats together - baggage is always much easier to store IME in first class - so when comparing prices consider that the pass is first class and the cheapest tickets are 2nd class - kind of like comparing apples to oranges IMO.
