New to this site, a big fan of Ricks DVDs!
We are a family of 2 adults and one child 5 years old, want to travel either June-July or Sept-oct (advice?) for approx 32-33 nights, coming from Australia.
Places we really want to visit;
- London 6 nights
- Paris 5 nights
- Lauterbrunnen Switzerland area 4 nights
- Hallstatt Austria 3 nights
- Munich 5 nights
- Amsterdam 5 nights Total 28 nights so have room for another 1-2 stops along the way.
Other places of interest are;
- Rhine Bacharach Germany
- Lake Como area
- a nice beach town with something different architecture wise with swimming beaches (suggestions)
- other suggestions
We want to experience something different in each place and want to limit long train travel. we don't want to travel overnight as heard this can be a bit hard to get proper sleep?
I'd like help with best order in which to travel to minimise time spent on train (inc minimum change overs), does the itinerary give us a good variety of experiences and are the nights spent in each too long/short, I'm finding it hard to work in a beach without making train travel too long. Would any of the travel between stops be better to hire a car rather than rail?
There are a lot of rail websites so unsure which is best, I'd like to prebook accommodation and rail.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
