Itinerary Suggestions

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are going to Europe in Oct 13, we don't want to try to see everything but have some things we want to be sure to do. Here are the things:

Southern Germany
*Possibly a clock making tour or something similar
*Castles
*Day trip to Salzburg

Northern Italy
*Cooking classe in say Parma or Genoa
*Churches

Switzerland
*Chocolate and cheese factory tours
*Mont Blanc day trip

We plan to spend 15 (not including travel days)

We are keen on purchasing an open jaw ticket

We definitely want to travel by train

We like the smaller towns, the intimate local feel, cobblestone streets

Our main dilemma is transportation, we don't want to spend all of our time traveling by train.

Should we pick a city and do day trips?

We do not want to stay in normal "hotels" per se. We are open to monastery, farm stay, B&B and castles.

It seems a lot of these places are very close to one another. We don't want to get overwhelmed.

Thanks for any help you can give!
