Help in planning a 21 day European trip in 2014

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 21 day trip to Europe with my 18 year old granddaughter from approximately April 28 - May 21, 2014. Like most, I would like for us to see as much as possible within the time frame, while taking into account that I am in my 60s and don't get around as well as I did when I last visited there when I was 20 and saw 7 counties in five weeks..

I cannot walk long distances because of knee problems. This will be a lifetime trip for the two of us. It very well may be the only trip to Europe that we ever get to take together, and I want it to be a very memorable experience fir both of us. Here are my current thoughts for an itinerary:

April 28 - Fly from the USA to Amsterdam
April 29 - Arrive in Amsterdam
May 1 - Fly to London
May 1 - 4 London
May 5 Take train to Pairs
May 5 - 8 Paris
May 9 - Fly from Paris to Rome
May 12 - Take train to Florence
May 12-14 Florence
May 14 - Train to Venice
May 14-16 - Venice
May 16 - Night train to Lucerne
May 17-18 Lucerne
May 19 - Train to Zurich
May 21 - Flight to USA

Instead of Switzerland, we could go to Innsbruck and Salzburg, Austria and fly home from Munich. I have been to all of the above places except Amsterdam (I want to see all the beautiful blooming tulips and other flowers).. It has been over 40 years since I traveled to these places, I feel sure they will look a great deal different now and fthe way I remember them. .

Thank you for any suggestions. I do admit this trip is doable, but ambitious. There are so many places that we can go. Renting a car is also an option.
