Itinerary Recommendation - Family Trip

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a graduation trip for my daughter in 2017. My wife and I visited Austria, Germany and Switzerland several years ago with Go Ahead vacations and enjoyed Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Lucerne, and Heidelberg. We loved the Alps. I'd like to introduce my daughter and son to European culture, architechture and history. While we enjoy art and museums we'd rather be outside enjoying culture, arcitecture and natural beauty. We'll be using American Airlines miles for our flights and will be traveling for 3 weeks. Here is my tentative itinerary: flying in to Pariis - Paris 3 nights (early a.m. arrival on day 1), fly to Rome 3 nights (mid morning arrival), fly to Vienna 3 nights, rent a car and drive Vienna-Hallstat-Salzburg (1 day), Salzburg 3 nights, Salzburg to Munich via the German Alpine Road (leaving GAR at Hausham), 2 nights in Munich, Munich to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein and overnight in Garmisch, Garmisch to Lucerne 3 nights with day trips to Pilatus and Lauterbrunnen, Lucerne to Heidelberg via rail - 2 nights in Heidelberg, Frankfurt - home. I know this seems like a lot in 3 weeks but I think its manageable based on previous vacation travel we've done. Does anyone have any other recommendations that might fit our architecture, history and culture preferences? I'd love to find a way to get to Prague but I'm struggling with getting there and getting our fill of the Alps. I'd also be open to an itinerary north through Italy via maybe Pisa and Lake Como. And if train travel is recommended for a particular segment, please let me know. Thanks for any suggestions.
