Hello travel folks!
My family (husband, 6 year old daughter, and myself) are traveling for about 5-6 weeks in Europe this June. Yes, that is just around the corner, I know!! Right now we are narrowing it down to Switzerland/Italy and France or Greece (not sure on the latter). France makes more sense logistically, but Greece is calling!
Here is our itinerary so far:
Could you please chime in on this if you see something you would nix or think we should add more or less time to? We will be travelling by train/public transport with the exception of having a car for four days while staying at an Agriturismo outside of Siena.
Fly into Geneva (frequent flyer miles to here)
Stay 2 nights in Geneva to recover from long flight from Kauai
4 nights in Murren, Switzerland
3 nights Varenna (Lake Como) we will have a pool here
2 nights Vernazza (Cinque Terre)
2 nights Florence
4 nights Rome
3 nights Agriturismo Marciano outside of Siena (Tuscany region)--day trip to Siena and possibly to Assisi
We had to jump from Florence to Rome and loop back to Siena/Tuscany because the Agriturismo we want to stay in was full due to my poor planning. I am very much behind the 8 ball here, I realize.
Is the Italy portion too much for just a tad over 2 weeks?
For all you parents of younger children, are there any suggestions of things to do or 'must see' with our super fun 6 year old daughter in mind?
I would greatly appreciate any input.
