I've found the feedback from the kind contributors on this site to be extremely useful in the planning of a family holiday. Whether I have taken any notice of this in the following draft itinerary - only you can be the judge!

Following are the places we want to see on tour and the number of days I have tentatively assigned to them. Unquestionably this will be an appetizer trip - not a banquet. Obviously we'd want to spend seven days at every place but I've tried to do justice to them all.

From NZ we are planning to fly to Paris late August next year:

PARIS - 2 nights
Fast train to Marseille. Pick up euro lease car and travel to -
Cote D'Azur - 2 nights
Nice - 1 night
La Spezzia - 1 night (leave car there whilst public transport to CT)
CT - 1 night
Tuscany - 6 nights
Outskirts of Rome - 5 nights daytrips to places like Anzio and Cassino
Amalfi Coast - 3 nights
4 nights heading inland on way to L'Aquila and Ancona
2 nights Ancona
3 nights outskirts of Venice
2 nights Lake Como
3 nights Munich
1 night Nuremburg
1 night Dusseldorf and then back for
1 night Frankfurt
Fly back to NZ

The bigger cities we will stay on the outskirts of and use public transport to get in and out.
If anybody has any suggestions for apartments, villas or hotels along the way, please sing out. Any other comment on this very fluid itinerary, would love to hear it.
Cheers
