We are a family of 4 (x2 daughters 19 and 15) and are looking at travelling to from Auckland to Greece, Germany, Italy, Spain and may be London though not as important. We are looking at travelling around Mid Dec to Mid January for approx 4-5 weeks. We plan to have Xmas in Germany with family friends. We would like to know the best route that allows us not to back track and save on time travel especially. Would prefer to go somewhere in Italy that isn't too frenetic. Northern Italy perhaps? We have been to Rome and Venice so would like to see somewhere different. Milan maybe?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.
