We are a couple in our early fourties with an 8 year old son,planning a 10 days trip to Europe (Germany, France ,Italy and Switzerland for Bernina express and Brienz Rothorn Railway trip only) From May 3rd to 13rd May 2020. We like scenic places, mountains and beaches, and aren't very big on museums and forts.
Below is the first draft of our itinerary, would appreciate your feedback - are we trying to do too much? We don't like very hectic trips and have tried to keep in medium paced.
We are planning travel these countries by train.
Day1-May 4th reach Paris from Mumbai
Day 3-5 -Italy: Rome,Venice, Siena,Milan, Tuscany
Day 6-8 Germany: Cologne, Rhine River, Heidelberg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Munich
Day 9-Switzeralnd-Bernina Express and if possible Brienz Rothorn Railway trip
Day 10-13th May : Leave in the evening from Geneva/Zurich to Mumbai
Kindly let us know if we should add/omit some places in our plan? What should be the iternary ? Which would be the best rail pass for all of these countries? Would Airbnb be a good option to stay?
