Hello there, This summer we want to travel from the Netherlands to Paris, and then to Italy. I'm traveling with a child, so I don't want the routes to be too long. We don't want to be in the train for like 6 hours. So I planned this: Breda - Brussels or directly to Paris. Paris - Lyon.
Then I get stuck. I want to travel to Italy then. If not to far out of the direction we would like to see Marseille and Nice and Monte Carlo. But if that is a route that takes much more time then we would like to go straight to Italy. But if I use the app interrail app I get incredibly long train times, either from Lyon or from Nice. Is that correct? What is the fastest route to get to Italy? If going through Lyon/Marseille/Nice takes so long, then maybe it's better to go from Paris straight to Italy? Or maybe a sleeping train? I can’t see how I can find this in the interrail app. I hope someone can give me advice on this.
And them in Italy we want to see: Milan, Venice, Rome, Toscane and maybe Florence. Any tips on what a good route would be in Italy?
And then we want to go back to the Netherlands. Is there a sleeping train that we can take back?
If any of you have any tips for where to stay/sleep, what to see (adult with 9 year old), that’s of course very welcome! Or if any of you would take a different route, that’s interesting too. I’m just orienting.
