Our family of 4 is the the planning stage of a trip for this August(16-31).

Is the following itinerary realistic in a 2 week time frame?

Fly into Munich, then head straight down to a "base" village for 4 nights. Tour alpine villages, see castles, hike.

Salzburg-2 nights

Train to Venice-1 night (just want to see the city...plan to walk, walk,walk!)

Train to Tuscany- 4 nights(maybe 5) : one day for Florence, one day to see a couple of hill towns, possibly visit Cinque Terre.

Train to Rome for 2-3 nights. Have been before, but thought to show kids the highlights.

Fly home from Rome

Is there a better itinerary which would incorporate beautiful German villages/scenery, with the inclusion of Italy. We are very flexible.....do not have to visit Rome, but would love to see Venice and Tuscany.

We plan to use a combination of car rentals and trains, given the cost of rental drop-off fees. We also hope to keep "complicated" travelling to a minimun.

ANY and ALL suggestions are greatly appreciated, as this is a somewhat daunting undertaking.

Thanks all!
Lori
