Best Rec for Two Weeks in Italy & Germany

Jump to last reply

We're first timers planning to visit Europe in June 2014 for two weeks (14 nights, not counting flight time). We'd like to split the time between Italy & Germany, but can't decide whether to try a home base in each country for a week, or to come up with a more linear approach, moving to the next region every 2-3 days.

We've done an east coast (USA) trip before, touring Baltimore, New York, Cape Cod, Boston, Philly in less time than that, and enjoyed it, but of course those are closer together.

A few notes to mention --
*we wish to travel exclusively by train
*budget is $10,000 USD for three (husband, daughter & me), including airfare from east coast USA

We're interested in not just hitting up the "big" towns, but more in a taste of the true culture. Areas of interest include Rome, Venice & Cinque Terre in Italy, while in Germany we're more inclined to visit smaller, less frequented villages and towns.

Thoughts? Is this a doable approach, or will we end our trip purely exhausted, having seen relatively little?
