Planning a trip to Europe with family of 4+1 kid

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 10-12 day trip in April 2013 to Europe with my wife kid and parents. I would fly out from Mumbai to London-Paris-Switzerland- Italy and fly back to Mumbai. (3-2-3-2 nights stay in each country)

I am planning to rent a car through the trip and do the sightseeing myself at popular destinations in each country. We don't mind staying in hotels or rental apartments or villas to accommodate 4 adults & 1 kid (2 yr old)

While planning I need the following help from the knowledgeable members of this forum

- Is car convenient to travel across all these countries? my goal is an optimum budget as the other option is to travel in a group on coach basis with a pre-decided itinerary with no flexibility at all..

- How is parking in general in europe at different sightseeing places.. is there any website to look for this information?

- need your suggestions to places I should visit in each of the countries keeping in mind I would be driving to these places..

- vegetarian food options around where i can have dinner around in the places suggested...

- Can local guides be booked in advance who would guide us upon arrival at those venues (in english or hindi (??)

This is our first time into Europe as a tourist (i have been before for business).. so any suggestions w.r.t to how I should plan are more than welcome

thanks in advance!
