Vienna-Venice-Rome-Paris trip ?

Hello there,

I am visiting Vienna for few days but I would like to make a hop on hop off :) trip to the above cities; I am thinking of taking a night train from Vienna to Venice and stay there for one day and take another train to Rome and stay there for another day, then fly to Paris for a couple of days.

It seems to be tiring but worthwhile.

what do you think of this itinerary and if you have any recommendations

Thanks a lot

What do I think of this itinerary? I think it's crazy! You want to visit four of the world's most iconic cities and spend a day or two maximum in each one? Do Vienna and no more than ONE other in this time!

For the amount of travel you need to do it's just not worth it. And don't think for one second that you will arrive fresh and ready to go after taking a night train. Two days of this and you will be absolutely exhausted and your experiences will be nothing but a blur. If you have such a short time, stay in Vienna, and do the rest when you can do these destinations justice.

I think this looks more like an episode of the Amazing Race. I suppose if you love train stations and airports and this is the main purpose of your travels than go for it. However, if you are actually wanting to see attractions and enjoy quality time in any of the cities you have mentioned, then this plan is not particularly advisable.

Keep in mind that many major attractions in these cities can take multiple hours to visit and there are hundreds of places to visit in each. As such, you would likely see 1 or 2 major attractions before needing to return to your hotel to check-out and make your way to the train station or airport to move on, and this is a real shame! This is really not the way to go in my opinion.

I think it would be best for you to decide on 1 or 2 places only and invest your time there.

Best of luck with your travel research and enjoy your trip to Europe.
