Help with itenerary for family trip

Jump to last reply

Hello. I won a trip through my employer in America. I am planning to take my husband and two daughters ages 11 and 13 on the trip with me to Europe. We would like to travel in September but due to school starting late August we are planning the first few weeks in August or we could also travel in July.

I am interested in the following places and I was looking for suggestions or where to fly into and what is the best way to get to the destinations (route and once we arrive). I have read a great deal and I think the train is the best option, but I wanted to get some clarity.

Leave from Chicago or Minneapolis - should we fly into Paris or London? We are interested in the following places to visit in no particular order.

London for 3-4 days
Paris for 3-4 days
Switzerland 3-4 days

My husband is interested in Germany and my oldest daughter is interested in Amsterdam due to a book she read but otherwise none of us feel strongly about where the third place should be to visit. My thought is to take in some of the countryside and amazing views in Switzerland after visiting two major cities and spending many days with heavy tourist schedules. I think i am looking for some relaxation with amazing views after the busy city visits. But I am not sold on this. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me as to this idea or if I should consider something else. I realize that this is a pretty open question - like when people come to America and say they have two weeks and what should they see.

The following places appeal to me in Switzerland but all for different reasons. If we are looking to relax and see just some of the country what one or two places may make the best sense for 3/4 days and then fly home from where?

I so appreciate any thoughts. And then once I get this figured out I do have questions on flats and things to do. But I will take it one thing at a time. Thanks in advance.

Carla
