Help with first time trip with family

Jump to last reply

We are finally taking a European trip.

Here are our facts
*We are a family of five: girls are 9, 11, 14
*planning on going for two to three weeks
*Original plan was to fly into London, train to Paris and train to and fly out of Milan (but I have noticed posts saying NOT to do that, but not sure why)
* While we want to see London, Paris and Milan- ideally we would be spending more time outside of these big cities. We know that we don't have time to really do much there so want to experience more small town culture with the short amount of time we do have
* we are active and any ideas of hikes, biking, even camping (if we can easily get equipment) are welcome.
* we are using United miles- so any help with best cities or ways to fly I would love to know.


Thank you!!!
