Night train from Paris

Jump to last reply

We're planning an approx three week family trip from end of November, allowing around a week each for London (with a day trip or two) and Paris(with a day trip or two).
We are also allowing around a week for Italy. Our early thought was to base ourselves in Rome, with a possible side trip to Florence for a couple of days. However, are now considering the Thello night train from Paris to Venice. If we allowed a couple of days to see Venice, we would then move on to Florence for, say, two days, which would leave us with 3-4 days to see Rome.
Does anybody have experience with the Paris - Venice night train?
Is trying to see the "essence" of Vencie-Florence-Rome in 7 or 8 days too desperately rushed? My hope is that there will be fewer people about in mid December, making gallery and museum access somewhat easier, but perhaps this is a misjudgement?
Our family is self and wife in late 40's, and our three kids (two girls 20 & 18 and 16yo son) - we would still need to work out the trip detail, but I know it will be one of compromise - they're not all going to want to just do the things that I'd like to do and see (they certainly don't at home!!!). We live in Australia, so it will be a big trip.

thanks,

Rob
