My 22-year old daughter and I are making a trip to Europe this summer. We were in Europe 4 years ago, visiting friends in Germany and then had a week in Paris. We have 3-3.5 weeks in June. We enjoy wandering around cities and discovering things, visiting gardens, palaces, museums (short visits, not all day…), having coffee and cake in a café. I know lots of itineraries are posted on the forum, but I’d appreciate any feedback. We had more stops, but I've dropped them so that we aren't moving too often.
--Arrive in Munich early June. We may stay overnight in Munich, in part because my daughter doesn't do well with jetlag.
--Salzburg – 4-5 nights. First time in Salzburg. Would like to do a day trip outside the city in addition to city sights.
--Train to Venice – 6-7 nights. Our first time in Italy. Daughter has a friend living near Modena for the summer and we would like to meet her one day either in Modena, or somewhere else. I'm thinking of splitting this stay between Venice and possibly Verona.
--Fly from Venice to Germany for 7-8 nights (we will be near both Düsseldorf and Hamburg). This puts us in Germany in mid-June, which is when our friends are all available.
--Paris – 4-5 nights (we loved Paris), via train from Düsseldorf or fly from Hamburg, depending on which friend we are with
--Fly back to SFO from Paris.
