Europe itinerary questions

Jump to last reply

We're going to be in Europe in July 2017 for 4 weeks and are trying to string together an itinerary.
Haven't been to continent before
Basically, the issue that I'm grappling with is whether it makes sense to do Dubrovnik and Triglav vs Cinque Terre and possibly a hike in Switzerland (Bernese Oberland or something similar). I'm not sure whether the Dalmatian coast, Amalfi coast, and Cinque Terre are going to be too similar to one another, and opted for more time in Toscana.
Also, with the schedule below I'm missing out on LEcce, Stromboli, and Capri altogether.....

Would like to have your thoughts. Why Triglav? Just found the pictures to the top of the summit pretty amazing and we are into that sort of thing.

We're flying in and out of Rome.
Basically, our itinerary is:
Day 1 - Land in Rome in the evening
Days 2-4: Rome
Day 5: Bus to Positano
Days 6,7: Positano
Day 8: Bus to Bari and catch ferry to Dubrovnik. Here I have a question - is Lecce a better option? We're after history and natural beauty
Days 9-10: Dubrovnik
Day 11-12: Drive to Bled over 2 days stopping at somewhere on the Dalmatian coast
Day 13: Bled (1/2 day), drive to Triglav national park
Days 14-15: Triglav (get to the top)
Day 16: Bled
Day 17: Bled to Venice
Days 18-19: Venice
Day 20-21: Padova
Day 22 - 27: Florence and Toscana (countryside)
Day 28: Head back to Rome
Day 29-30: Rome, Leave in the evening
