first european holiday itinery

Jump to last reply

Hi we are an Australian family of 2 adults and 2 children (11 and 8) who are planning on visiting family in Malta and incorporating a 5 week European holiday( as it is very expensive for 4 of us to fly to europe so would like to see as much as possible). We are planning on going June/July and wish to visit London, Paris, Malta, Berlin, Munich, Salzburg, Venice, Verona, Florence, Tuscany and Rome. We plan to fly from Australia to London and fly home from Rome.

Is the following itinery doable?
London 4 days then Eurostar to Paris
Paris for 4 days including Versailles
Fly to Malta for 1 week
Fly Malta to Frankfurt (visit family in Kassel so take the train from Frankfurt airport)
Train to Berlin
2 days Berlin then night train to Munich
In Munich want to see city, BMW plant, day tour to Neuschwanstein castle, day trip by train to salzburg (kids want to do sound of music tour)
Fly munich to venice and spend 2 days in venice
Train venice to verona and stay overnight
Train verona to Florence. Spend a day sightseeing in florence, then do a day tour to siena, pisa and san gimignano
train to Rome and spend 3 nights before flying home

We realise this is a busy itinery - trying to squeeze in as much as possible.
No idea about where to stay suitable for a family - wondering about an apartment in london and paris.
would be interested in your thoughts or suggestions including rail passes
thanks
