It's moderately whirlwind, but at their ages, you are probably counting on 14-16 hour days. with the amount of territory you're covering, you will give up 25-35 hours in intra-europe transportation by train - - 15-20 if you would rent a car instead. Plus, a car would save you money.

Train might be a little more relaxing, since you are the only available driver.

Either way, I predict you will have a great trip.

Best wishes,

Rex

Your itinerary is too extensive for 12 days.Consider renting a car in Zurich , driving south and spending your vaccation in and around southern Switzerland and northern Italy, ie: the beautiful lake country.Ascona, Locarno, Bellagio and other sites would be wonderful in June. Good Luck.

I agree that eithe Chamonix or Florence should probably be sacrificed. These are the two furthest apart points. Consider yourself to have an eleven day trip, not twelve if you give up one whole day to get between two points so widely separated from each other.
