Road Trip from Paris to Rome with Kids?

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 5, with three children who would be ages 4, 7, and 9 by the time we travel. We are just starting out with planning, and honestly are planning for waaay in advance (October 2015), because we want to do this trip right! So any helpful information would be greatly appreciated! This will be our first time and our ideal trip with be to fly into London. Then we want to take the underwater rail to Paris. We'd prefer to drive by car from Paris to Rome so we can see more things that we wouldn't normally see by air or train. We are a road-trippin' kind of family and would love to do what we do here in the U.S. on our first Europe trip! Then we would fly out of Rome.

We need suggestions for how many days to spend in each location (how should we break up the three weeks we would be spending there) and what sites/cities to stop by (considering our kids' ages) along the way on our road trip from Paris to Rome. Also advice on how to rent a car in Europe.

Anyway, we are starting out planning so suggestions would be greatly appreciated so we can map out a realistic itinerary/budget for our family. THANK YOU!
