Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 and intend to travel Europe in Mid may 2014. I am planning to travel with my parents who are 75 plusyears.the scheduled itinerary is as follows-
Day 1. ArriveLondon
Day 2.London
Day 3.London
day 4.Paris
Day 5.Paris
Day 6. Paris
Day 7. Zurich
Day 8. Switzerland
Day 9.Switzerland
Day 10Switzerland
Day 11. Rome
Day 12. Venice
Day 13. Venice
Day 14. London
Day 15. Fly home
While my wife and I have travelled in Europe, this is a first time for my parents. I wish to understand whether or not htis is a doable program as it should not be hectic as their movement on foot shall be rather restricted.We plan to move around in London using hop on hop off, and proceed to Paris by a flight or train (which should i prefer!) I plan to use the swiss rail pass for travelling in Switzerland and procced to Rome and do venice by train before flying back to london.
Can anyone please suggest the comfortable way to travel with seniors in these places without involving too much of walking around. Also should Rome and Venice be included in the itinerary as I believe both these places are seen best on Foot.(Have never been to Italy before !)
Any suggestions are most welcome !
