European Dream Vacation

Jump to last reply

I am planning a European dream for my and I to take next year. We are almost 50 (not quite yet and have been married almost 30 years.

We plan to leave in Mid-April and stay in the following cities.

Amsterdam - 3 days
Frankfurt - 2 days
Munich - 2 days
Verona - 3 days (Making a day trip to Venice 1 day)
Lucerne - 3 days

We will be departing from the Austin, TX area and are planning on being gone a total of 16-17 days so there is a little bit of flexibility. We are planning on making all the bookings our self for flights and hotels.

The plan is to rent a car in Amsterdam and make this a driving trip as my we both like to see the countryside and those little things off the beaten path. The cities are about 250 miles apart.

We have been to Europe once about 15 years ago and visited both London and Paris. We know these are a lot of cities to visit in this short amount of time but we may never have the opportunity to return and so we will just see and enjoy as much as we can.

We would certainly appreciate any comments about 1) The proposed itinerary, 2) Our ability to truly rent a car and drive to all of our destinations, 3) Must sees in the cities listed, 4) Advice on booking air fare and hotels, 5) Best travel guides to help us plan outings and places to go and finally 6) Anything else that comes to mind

Thanks in advance for your help!

Blessings from Steve and Cynthia
