Italy, Krakow and more

by /bio/mcleffler »

Interested in planning bucket list trip to Italy and Krakow with my daughter. Thought we might be able to explore a few other spots too. What do you pros think about a trip to Rome, Venice, Florence, Vienna, Prague, and Krakow? Anything I should consider instead. 2 weeks crazy?

Definitely crazy, Rome only can be explored for 7 days in a row. same relates to Venice and Florence. It will become a very rushed trip for you unless you cut your cities list

I figured but this is a first trip. We likely will stay in each spot 3 days. I do think cutting the trip essential but what to cut ????? My must sees are St. Peter’s, colosseum, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Venice canalsand hanging around people watching. Been thinking we’d like to some hiking day trips or two. When we do that, we’ll stay an extra day in that spot.

It really all depends on where you are coming from .  There are non-stop flights between Rome and Krakow (Ryan Air), so one routing you could explore if you are starting out from the USA is to take a flight to Venice, spend some days there, then take a fast train to Rome, spend some days there, then take a flight to Krakow so you can visit Auschwitz. You can all that in less than 2 weeks so given how little you want to see in all those places, so after visiting Auschwitz, you could take a non-stop flight someplace for hiking that puts you in a good position to take a flight back home.  (I'd probably fly from Krakow to Dublin airport, and spend a few days in the pretty Irish countryside, doing some walking and trekking, and then fly from Dublin airport back to the US).

Taking so many plane fights puts in you at a lot of risk of getting grounded for bad weather, and even if the flights are short, you still need to spend hours in the airport and getting to and from the airport.  So only you know if in the end it's going feel worth it or cause for regret.
