Amsterdam + Alps + Tuscany in 2 weeks

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I am new to Fodor's Travel, so please forgive me if this is a repeated post!

My husband and I are planning to head to Europe in the fall of 2015 for only 2 weeks (14 days of actually being in Europe - travel to and from Canada not included in that 2 weeks). We have both been to Europe seperately only once, making us quite inexperienced at travelling. This is likely going to be our only trip to Europe together before starting a family so we really want to make the best of it!

Although we would love to see everything Europe has to offer, we have narrowed it down to wanting to go to Amsterdam for 5 days, the Alps (Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland) for 4 days and Tuscany for 5 days. Is this an attainable trip?? We don't want to feel too rushed, although that is likely impossible. We are planning to book private apartments with Airbnb.com

Amsterdam interests - canal cruise, cafes, bike rentals, heineken experience, van gogh museum, ann frank house, cheap food/alcohol, good beer, fall festivals

Alps interests - scenic views, hikes, tram rides, para-gliding, affordable cafes, quaint old town/city, comfortable weather in fall (most interested in Switzerland, but open to other Alpine towns/cities instead)

Tuscany interests - good food/wine, cooking classes, wine tours, hot springs, country side

Any advice about any or all of these destinations would be greatly appreciated! Would also love to hear input about whether or not this itinerary is attainable while not feeling too too rushed!

Thanks :)
