Three Countries, 21 days and 4 kids???

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip for next year (summer 2014) for my husband, myself and 4 kids (ages next year 11 yrs, 11 yrs, 9 years and 8years) to Europe. We would like to go for 3 weeks and I've planned a detailed itinerary which includes 4 1/2 days in London, 4 1/2 days in Paris, and 12 days traveling through Italy. On paper it seems like it would be a wonderful trip, but I know traveling with kids, sometimes things are more than what you've planned for. We've not traveled to Europe as a family...just myself and the two older kids have been to Paris a couple years ago to visit friends.

We plan on traveling by EuroStar, plane from Paris to Naples and train through Italy.

Do you think it would be better to shorten the trip to only 2 weeks and only do London and Paris? Then do Italy another time? OR do you think that we would be fine doing the whole 3 weeks?

Thanks for any advice!
