Please critic this 21 day European adventure, spring of 2014

First, a little background on us. I lived for one year in France (near Toul) & two years in Germany (Wurzburg) in the mid-60s. I also did a 3 week trip to Germany, Denmark & Norway in 1997 with my wife and daughter. This time we are traveling with good friends who have never been to Europe. They would like to see parts of France, Austria & Italy. They do not want to "blitz" these countries. No hard core "go,go,go" We are all mid-60s but pretty healthy.

Our tentative plan is to fly into Paris & spend 3 or 4 days seeing the major sites. Then lease a car and head to Rheims & Toul (have to see my old home & school). Then off to Austria via Freiburg (see the cathedral), Neuschwanstein Castle and Garmisch. Then maybe Salzburg & on to Vienna for a couple days. Then on to Venice & Florence. IF (big IF) we have time & the energy we could park the car near Florence & do a r/t train ride to Rome for a couple days. Then back to Florence and on to Nice, Marseille and either to Barcelona or Paris for the flight home. Returning the car in Barcelona would cost some extra bucks but also save us some driving.

The odds of this trip going exactly as above are slim. We're very open to suggestions. I'm guessing the major criticism will be "too much driving" and "not enough relaxing". Well, let's hear your options. :-)

TIA
