Schengen Help!

Jump to last reply

I apologize to those of you who have seen this question on this forum for the 5,000th time. I did make an effort to look up previous discussions, but none seemed to match my itinerary in a way that put my mind completely at ease so I ask:

As an American will I get into trouble with this itinerary where the Schengen region issue is concerned?

July 8 - 22 - Ireland
July 23 - Aug 4 - Scotland
Aug. 5 - 12 London
(It is my understanding that the Schengen clock begins at this juncture of my trip)
Aug. 13 - 15 Belgium
Aug. 16 - 26 Paris
Aug. 27 - Sept. 1 Switzerland
Sept. 2 - 21 Italy
Sept. 22 - 25 Poland
Sept. 26 - 29 Prague
Sept. 30 - Oct. 8 Munich

From the time we enter Belgium until the day we fly out of Munich is 57 days
We may have a 1 day layover in Iceland on the way to Seattle.

My husband, mother and father are on vacation, we are tourists the entire time. From what I understand we do not need a visa, except it seemed questionable that we may need one in Poland? I am a novice international traveler, I don't quite understand the difference between a travel visa vs. traveling without a visa? I also saw on the US Embassy website there was a ESTA? Am I naïve to think I can travel throughout these countries with just my passport or is there additional visa/non-visa paperwork that I will need?

Thank you all so much for any advice/help you can offer. One day, I plan to be very good at this :D lol.
