France, Switzerland, Italy Newbie Itinerary Critique

Jump to last reply

Ok, I've finally pencilled in my itinerary and am ready to book my accomodations that I have identified. Again, this is my first trip to Europe and I will be travelling with my wife and two teenagers. I plan on train travel between each destination. I am not sure if this is possible between Bern Oberland and Venice, but I am guessing it should be. We will be travelling in peak August, but we will have A/C in each location and will try to do much of our site seeing early morning and late afternoon.

Paris (B&B) - 5 Nights
Switzerland (B&B in Lauterbraunnen) - 5 Nights
Venice (B&B on Grand Canal, near Riealto Bridge) - 4 Nights
Rome (B&B apartment near the Colleseum) - 6 Nights

I was wondering if this is too much time in Rome. Since we have a really nice Grand Canal view place in Venice, I was wondering if I should just add another day there especially since I will lose much of the first day travelling from Swiss Alps. What are the top day trips out of Rome for this time of year? Also, is it possible when travelling from Venice to Rome to stop off in FLorence to visit for half day before continuing to Rome?

Thanks very much for your help and tips for a first timer.
