Next summer we are having the trip of a lifetime - my husband and two kids plus my parents will be travelling to Italy for 10 days then doing an 11 day Mediterranean cruise. After, most of us are returning to the states but my daughter and I will have two weeks to explore between Rome and Paris (we will be flying out of Paris) on our own. Since we will have seen most of Italy already, i'd like to take her to Switzerland or Austria - even Southern Germany is okay, then eventually to Paris. I'm really open with where we go.
Here is the impo info:
We'll have 14+ days.
I do NOT want to rent a car (prefer a train - esp. scenic trains)
want village life but am open to cities too.
interested in any ideas to really immerse in local culture
interested in ways to meet other families/children
I think that's it. At the end I'd like to spend 4-5 in Paris with her.
Thanks in advance for your help!
