Up for a challenge? Plan this itinerary

Jump to last reply

I know many fodorites love a trip planning challenge so see what you can do with this one.
Places I would like to include (in no particular order):
Rovinj, Croatia; Ljubljana and Bled Slovenia
Venice, Italy
About a week in North-Central Italy towns such as Ferrera, Parma, Mantova, others?
Netherlands: Haarlem, Delft, Leiden
Iceland: Reykjavik and Golden Circle Day Tour

Trip will be for about 4 weeks, beginning the last week of June 2012

So which order to do them in, and how long for each?

I’m trying to figure out the best way to get from place to place – open to planes, trains, buses and boats. But do not want to rent a car. Would like to keep train or bus rides to about 4 hours or less (each).

Will fly in/out of Boston, MA (although could do NYC if got significantly better/cheaper flights)

How did I come up with this list? Well, except for Venice , these are places I’ve wanted to see but have not been able to work into other trips. A friend I’ve always wanted to travel with suggested we go to Venice, as that’s one place she’s never been (we have both traveled quite a bit) – but I’ve been three times in the last decade - so I’m looking at places that aren’t too far from Venice to combine with it. Most of my summer trips I try to split my time between someplace with a high chance of hot, sunny weather, with some time in Northern Europe.
