How much driving is too much during an 11 day trip?

Jump to last reply

My wife, three teenage children and I are flying into Zurich July 1st. We depart July 12th. We have much we want to see: the Swiss Alps, northern Italy, Venice, Vienna or Salzburg, Prague, and Munich. Google maps tells me this itinerary - starting in Zurich, driving south toward Milan and over to Verona and Venice, then northeast to Vienna, northwest to Prague, and Southwest to Munich (then back to Zurich for our return home) - is 22 hours +.

Is this crazy?

Here's the problem: my wife's "musts" include Venice and Prague. Quite frankly, as much as I'd like to visit Prague, I'd be happy cutting 5.5 hours of total drive time by eliminating it and going to Munich via Salzburg.

Thanks in advance for your input.
