Here's what I have so far, but it seems too rushed:
Paris June 17-20
Carcassonne: June 21-22
Nice: June 22-23 (just to break up the Carcassonne-La Spezia travel time)
La Spezia/Cinque Terre: June 23-25
Rome (via lunch stop in Pisa) June 25-28
Venice: June 28-30
Gimmelwald: June 30-July 2
Munich: July 2-July 3
Fly from Munich to London
London: July 3-July 5
Fly home on the evening of July 5th.
Here's my problems/questions:
- The Carcassonne to Cinque Terre stretch is a long one. We don't really want to stay in Nice, but I didn't want to waste a whole day on the train, when at least we could somewhat enjoy a part of an evening in Nice.
2.We really wanted to already be in Cinque Terre on the 23rd, with no travel involved on that date because it's our anniversary.
The Venice to Gimmelwald stretch is another long one. Any advice?
We really wanted at least a day and a half to 2 full days in Gimmelwald.
In Munich we'd like to rent a car and drive the romantic road, stay overnight in Rothenburg, then drive back to Munich the next day, return the car and then fly out to London. Is this too much in 2 days?
On the bahn.de website I can't seem to search without it requiring the departure time. I would like to just find out what times of day the route is available. Is it possible to search without specifying a time?
We're open to flying within Europe once in a while to save time, but looking on RyanAir, Easyjet, etc. it seems the flights between places are pretty limited to big cities. Is this true?
Any advice on how to make our itinerary/trip more enjoyable we'd really appreciate!Thank you!
