Last Quarter 2013 European Fly/Road Trip

Jump to last reply

I will start by saying that my family and I have just completed a road trip here in Australia in 10 days that covered 2600 klms. So distance isn't the issue. So I am asking for advice on length of stay and if I should either include places I haven't thought of or exclude places. So this is what I am thinking of a schedule.

Fly into Paris and spend 4 or 5 days.

Fly into Lisbon spend 3 days

Fly into Madrid and spend 2 days and then get a car (probably the lease scheme).

Drive to Valencia spend 2 days

Drive to Barcelona spend 4 days

Drive to Marseilles spend 2 days

Drive to Nice/Cannes area and spend 3 days

Drive to Genoa (spend 2 days)

Drive to Milan (spend 2 days)

Drive to Venice (spend 3 days)

Drive to Florence (spend 3 days including day trip to Pisa)

Drive to Rome (spend 4 days)

total holiday time is around 30 days give or take.

Back home to Australia

As I say I am certain that there are many things I haven't thought of as we are 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 4, 11 and 13) but we are used to driving large distances coming from Queensland in Australia. So I am interested in thoughts and ideas and if some places are worth staying longer/shorter etc...
