4 to 5 weeks in Europe not rushed

Jump to last reply

We are a mid to late 20 cpl with a 2 year old son. Our plan is land in Amsterdam from sydney and fly out from a different city back to Sydney. No set time on length of holiday yet, but looking at around 4 to 4.5 weeks. Our work is very flexible. We are not one bit religious or into art. There's a few churches we wouldn't mind seeing as listed but not interested in dong tours of them or into art museums. We would like to go to history museums to get to know a bit more about each city. The holiday we want is to just wander around seeing the landmarks while doing a few tours of our choice. We are looking to go in September. Sorry for the layout, it's a bit rushed trying to get it sorted and my head is in circles haha.

AMSTERDAM 4 nights.
*Canal cruise
*Anne frank house
*Amsterdam museum
*vondelpark
*Half day tour to zaanse schans windmills, market and volendam

DAY 5 Fly to Liverpool
LIVERPOOL 3nights
*Liverpool match at Anfield
*beetles museum.
*Slavery museum
*Albert Dock

train to London
LONDON 7 nights
* Houses of Parliament and Big Ben
*westminster abbey
*the guards museum
*Trafalgar Square
*Buckingham palace ( tour)
*Hyde park
*st Paul's cathedral
*Tower of London
*Tower bridge

Train to Paris
PARIS 4
*Eiffel Tower/ champ de Mars
*river cruise
*Arc de triomphe
*Montparnasse tower
*Notre dame
*palace of Versailles

Is this enough days to see mentioned places at a slow pace? We would like a rest day at each city to do nothing but wander around. After Paris we would like to spend 10-12 nights at beach location or two just relax and chill out before heading home. First choice was the Greek Islands but we were told it gets a lot of party goers at that time of year, so are thinking Barcelona or maybe just go to south France. We are unsure. Open upto any ideas, we are still trying to get our head around Europe with so little notice that we are going.
