30-day road trip 2015

Jump to last reply

I've read some other road trip threads, but I still can't make up my mind about our summer 2015 30-day road trip. So for those of you who want to offer advice/opinions, I'd be grateful :)

This summer we are picking up a Volvo in Sweden, then taking the ferry from Sweden to Germany. We'll be driving with our 5-yr old daughter for a month. We've been to Europe about 10 times (lived there twice) and we're hoping to stay away from major cities since we'll be driving (so no Rome or Paris) This is our latest itinerary:
Goteborg Sweden -3 days
Heidelberg Germany -2 days
Verona/lake region in Italy - 3 days
Pacentro 2/3 days (this is where my family is from and cannot be taken off the list.)
Pompei - 1 day
Florence area - 3 days
Provence - 4 days
Lyon (to visit friends) 2 days
Disneyland Paris 2 days
Bruges - 1 day
Pinneberg - 1 day
Malmo - 1 day

I know everyone asks this, but is this too much driving with our 5 year old? Have other people attempted this with a young child and if so how did it go? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
