Hi everyone,
I am very new to this website and hoping to get some help in creating a comfortable and an enjoyable itinerary. We have a one year old who will be 17 months when we take the trip to Europe. This will be our first trip to Europe in September 2014. I would really like to squeeze in Spain or Prague, because I am not sure if we will be able to go back ever again :( but I know its not practical. So here is what I am thinking:

Land in Paris from Seattle.
4 days in Paris. not sure what to see other than paris in france... help!

9 days in Italy:
2 in Venice
3 in Florence
really want to visit Pisa
4 days in Rome

5 days in Switzerland.
want to explore Interlaken, Zurich?

My questions:
1) Should I go to Switzerland before Italy. From Paris?
2) Is there any chance I can squeeze in any other country?
3) Should I rent a car with a toddler or just use trains?
4) Are the days enough for each city or too much?
5) Is $5000 enough budget for all this? (we r not much into shopping and expensive dinning)
