I've been searching for an itinerary that inspires me and I'm getting close!
My husband and I (in our 50's) fly in to Prague, then out of Budapest, 18 nights, April 20-May 6. I already have 6 nights booked in Prague, then 2 nights in Český Krumlov - so that's set.
Please take a look at my proposed itinerary below. I'd like to keep our train trips between locations to around 3 hours (certainly under 5 hours if possible), but don't want to spend nights in places that aren't worthwhile either (tough tradeoff, I know!).
Is Ljubljana worth 4 nights? Or should we stop somewhere for one night on the way from CK, or as we leave heading to Budapest?
Here's my draft itinerary:
April 19, Land Prague
April 20 Prague
April 21 Prague
April 22 Prague, DAY TRIP maybe: Terezin
April 23 Prague, DAY TRIP maybe: The Konopiste Castle,
April 24, Prague
April 25, Český Krumlov
April 26, Český Krumlov
April 27, Ljubljana, or stop somewhere on the way to Ljubljana to break up the long train: Idea - Graz?
April 28, Ljubljana
April 29, Ljubljana
April 30, Ljubljana, or stop somewhere for one night on the way to Budapest to break up the long train: Ideas - Maribor Slovania, Ptuj Slovenia, or Graz Austria, or other options???
May 1, Budapest
May 2, Budapest
May 3, Budapest
May 4, Budapest
May 5, Budapest
May 6, Budapest
May 7, flight home
