Month Itinerary England, France, Germany, Italy does this work?

Jump to last reply

Thank goodness I had not booked my apartments as my trip with my 15 year old grand-daughter has changed. We were able to add another week stretching our vacation to a month. I would love to visit the Dordogne area of France as I have never been there and your comments makes it sound like a beautiful place to experience. She wants to visit Italy as she was only a year old on our last trip together with her parents.

These are my thoughts right now to hit areas before the heat arrives. We leave June 3 and I thought we would fly into Munich, rent car go to Rothenburg, Neuschwanstein castle, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Salzburg. Love the countryside of Germany and it's beautiful villages.

Take train to Venice from Munich (Been to Venice many times so just want short visit for her)including day trip to Verona. From Venice fly to Tours, France to rent car to tour the Dordogne area. Drive to Paris, visiting Claude Monet's garden at Giverny on the way. Drop car outer Paris (Orly or Port d'Orleans).

Eurostar to London after at least 5 days Paris possibly 7 if time allows. London for 7 days with 2 day trips while there. Fly back home

I had the trip reversed when we only had 3 weeks and didn't have the Dordogne or Venice included. Checking last June's weather, I am trying to rearrange schedule by temperature.

How does this sound? Wondering about reasonable time to allow for Germany and Venice. Reasonable time to tour Dordogne and drive to Paris. I do plan to come back to this area one day by myself but want my grand-daughter to see it. Also is there a central place to stay in the Dordogne or should I stay in different areas to make my way to Paris? Also want to see Mont Saint-Michel. I think I can add a few more days if needed to get everything on this trip. Just need to get her back in time for summer soccer and volleyball. Thanks for your input.
