Renting Apartments in Paris

I just booked my tickets for a 3 week Europe trip.

Places to visit: Paris, Alps-Town (Interlaken), Prague, Krakow and Berlin

Here is how the draft Itinerary looks like:

Day 1 (Flight from Home)

Day 2 to Day 5 (Paris)

Day 6 (Train to Alps-Town)

Day 7 to Day 10 (Alps-Town -Interlaken)

Day 11 (Train to Prague)

Day 12 to Day 14 (Prague)

Day 15 (Train to Krakow)

Day 16 to Day 17 (Krakow & Day trip Auschwitz)

Day 18 (Train to Berlin)

Day 19 to Day 21 (Berlin)

Day 22 (Flight to Home)

I plan to rent apartments in most of the places (have 2 kids ages 7 and 3)

Any suggestions on:

- Renting Apartments in Paris

o Which sites to use (Airbnb??)

- Train travel from Paris to Alps-Town ( Interlaken)

o When and where to buy tickets

- Any comment on draft Itinerary

Your itinerary looks like you're covering too much distance and too many places in too little time. Use seat61.com to learn about train travel in Europe and which websites to book tickets. If you're traveling within the next 3 months buy your train tickets asap for the cheapest prices and know that you are likely booking too late for the cheapest fares.

Think twice about renting for such short stops. The delays and hassles of check ins and outs and the big time sinks of having anything go wrong with the apartment can really eat up time on a trip. It is not a big deal to have to wait for the plumber if you are there for two weeks, but when you are there 3 days, it is a big deal. Most Paris rentals are illegal so there is always the risk that you could have the booking cancelled last minute.
