First family trip to Europe

Jump to last reply

Hello, I'm in the beginning stages of planning a family trip to Europe. I'll be traveling w/ my wife and two daughters (4yo and 2yo), none of us have ever been to Europe. I am anticipating a slow pace and a lot of patience that will be involved traveling with such young kids, but we would like to attempt it before they are in school.

We are considering flying into Rome, spending 4 nts in Rome, train to Florence, 3 nts in Florence, train to Venice, 2 nts in Venice, fly from Venice to Salzburg, 3 nts in Salzburg, and finish up with 3 nts in Vienna, flying home from Vienna.

My 3 main questions: Is this itinerary much too ambitious for a first European trip/trip with young children? Also, are these cities appropriate for first time travelers abroad (we have the flexibility to add up to two days to any part of this trip)? And lastly, should we attempt to book everything ourselves or deal with a travel agency? My wife has wanted to visit Vienna the entire time I've known her, hence that leg of the trip. Any advice on the trip would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
