I’m planning a trip for my in-laws, husband & myself starting in London. Initially we were going to rent a car with my husband driving. However after reading lots of comments from the forum & Rick’s book, I think we’ll stick with trains & buses. My in-laws have some mobility issues, so the trip will be less active than if it was just myself & husband.
The plan is to spend 3 nights / 4 days seeing London. Then train to Guildford, rent a car & drive to Headley where my husband’s family is from. Stay 2 nights in Headley area, then return the car & train to Bath.
2 nights / 3 days in Bath taking the train or buses for day trips.
Take the train to Cotswolds area & 2 nights / 3 days in Moreton-in-Marsh.
Take the train to York & spend 2 nights / 3 days & then train to Edinburgh.
Spend 3 nights / 4 days in Edinburgh. Fly out of Edinburgh to London. Overnight in London & take the Eurostar train to Paris.
Spending 3 nights in Paris & then travel to Normandy area via car.
Return car to Paris & flying to Rome. Spending 3 nights / 4 days in Rome seeing sights & then taking train to Orvieto, renting a car & visiting our favorite villages. Return the car, train back to Rome & fly back to US.
I’m open to suggestions & ideas of what we really need to see that I didn’t list. Thank you.
