My husband and I both mid 50's will be travelling from Australia to the continent for our first and probably only tour in July 2013.
The Plan so far is....after a ten day trip around England and Scotland with friends on our own
Thurs July 25th Early flight London to Rome
Fri, Sat, Sun Rome
Mon high speed train to Florence - overnight stay
Tues high speed train to Venice
Wed explore Venice, late train to Milan
Thurs explore Milan ovenight stay
Fri Milan to Zurich by Bernina Express overnight Zurich
(or fly late Zurich to Paris - is there an overnight train?)
Sat Sun Mon Paris
Tues Paris to London Eurostar
Wed, Thurs, Fri London then late flight back to OZ Friday August 9th
Does this sound do - able, sensible or fraught with difficutlies I have not picked up regarding the route and method of travel?
WE hope to stay in B&B Rick Steve style wherever possible so any recommendations would not go amiss there either.
Thanks in advance Guys!
