London, Paris, Prague and Rome with 4 year old and 8 month old

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, my wife and I are planning our first trip to Europe in November 2014. We've been waiting for a long time to visit Europe, but have not been able to schedule a trip until now. Thought about waiting for the kids to be older, but then again also didn't want to wait so long!

Here's the plan:
London 4 days, Paris 5 days, Prague 4 days, and finally Rome 5 days. We will be flying from city to city, except London-Paris which is by Eurostar.
We'll also be making day trips: Cesky Krumlov from Prague, and Florence from Rome.

The idea is to minimize the changing of hotel rooms (planning to source from AirBNB) and to minimize travel stress. Originally we thought about taking the trains, but the long journey and train changes sounded really tiring, especially when we plan to bring 2 umbrella strollers (prams), and 2 suitcases. I will be carrying 1 backpack too.
We are planning to bring diapers for the 20-day trip. We're from a warm country, so we'll also be bringing sufficient warm clothing. Hence the 2 suitcases :)

We plan to book the day trips only when we arrive in the city, in case of any unforseen circumstances eg. children falling sick, or too many things to see in the city.

Would love to hear any advice and feedback on our itinerary.
Thanks in advance!
