Parents' first time in Europe - help on itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello! This is my first time posting on Fodor's after a long time reading everyone's helpful posts to plan my own travel. Please bear with me!

I myself have stayed in Spain for 6 weeks before and am going to Italy for a month very soon. I plan to go with my parents (both in their mid fifties, active, can walk anywhere on normal terrain) to Europe during May next year for 2 weeks. It will be their first time in Europe. As I spent 6 weeks in Granada before and very much enjoyed getting to know the city, I'm not the type who wants to see many places in a short time period. However, my parents can only afford 2 weeks off of work, so I have thought of a very rough draft itinerary based on the cities I've heard them casually mention before.

Day 1-4: Prague
Day 5-7: Budapest
Day 8-12: Paris
Day 13-14: possibly Southern France/Provence, but we might spend more time in Paris if they want to.

My parents mostly enjoy good walks, scenic train ride, and leisurely mornings sipping coffee in a cute coffeeshop. Museums are not a must, nor are "must-see" sights. My dad also enjoys driving and has no problem driving manual. Among the destinations above only Prague and Paris have to be in the itinerary. Do you think I should stick to those and take side trips to smaller towns instead? The only thing is I've read many threads on Prague vs. Budapest, which only made me want to give them both an equal chance. (The only reason Prague got 4 days is to account for jet lag).

Or, should we take an entirely different itinerary altogether? Should we replace the cities with smaller towns to better fit the short time allotment? Just that my dad talks about Prague and my mom talks about Paris sometimes, so I wanted to incorporate those into the trip. Any opinions are appreciated!
