2 week itinerary in March? Frankfurt-Paris-Berlin-Vence-Frankfurt...

Jump to last reply

Hello Fellow Fodorites, I just got two business class tix on Lufthansa March 17-31, flying ATL to FRA and back FRA-ATL (we'll be getting to ATL and back on Delta miles from SFO, not ticketed yet).

We are "carry-on" travelers and fairly fit, fifties.

We'd like to get to Paris. We've been, but not for some time.

We love train travel and are keen to do the Paris-Berlin overnight train and are happy with another couple of day trips on the trains.

I'd like to be in Venice (our favorite) Mar 21-22-23 for a workshop, if we can swing it.

We need to end up at FRA to fly back on Mar 31.

Reviewing the map, I'm thinking FRA-Strassbourg (or Cologne?) -Paris-Berlin-Nuremburg/Munich-Venice-FRA.

DH will be working part of the weekdays via internet broadband card/laptop. I'll be off so only need internet contact (have iphone etc.).
I've been to Mainz, Heidelberg and Munich; he's only stopped at FRA & MUC. We haven't seen much of France between Paris and Germany. (Love Switzerland and Austria but of course too much for this trip). Proportionally prefer more time in France or northern Italy as it can work out.

OK, thanks for your thoughts; this one is brand new and I'm just starting; appreciate feedback or suggestions, particularly for routing. I know logically we should forget Berlin, the outlier, but DH is WWII film buff and we are unlikely to get there on another trip. (FB Fodorites, I'm keeping this off FB.)

Our interests: history, culture, scenery, good food but not necessarily fancy restaurants (like bistros; don't need the Michelin 3 star, for ex.), walking around town; don't like to drive if possible (do enough at home). Coffee/hot chocolate at neighborhood cafes, etc. Just being away from our native habitat for a while and being in new and interesting places. Would like to consolidate in a few places but seems tough on this trip!
