    While three weeks is a lot of time, you are spreading yourself very thin and covering lots of area. I’m especially looking at Venice->Munich->Vienna->Budapest. Covering 4 countries in as many days is tough. I would always have at least 2 or 3 days in each city.

    I think you’ve got at least 1 too many cities for 3 weeks. 3 weeks often works out:
    Day 1: flight from North America
    Day 2: Arrive jet-lagged, sleep-deprived and culture shocked — do as much as you can, but don’t plan on serious sight-seeing on day 2
    Day 21: ENTIRELY taken up with your flight home
    Day 20: Can easily be lost to getting to your departure city and/or other flight preparation issues

    I’d save Dublin for your next trip when you can spend enough time in Ireland to enjoy it. I like Ireland, but IMO Dublin is “just another city.” With 3 days at the end of your trip you could easily waste a full day getting to Dublin and then not really experience Ireland at all.

    To save some travel time Look at grouping London, Paris and Amsterdam at the beginning (or end) of your trip. They’re all connected by fast and frequent train service. Fly or overnight train to Venice then work back to Germany and fly home from one of the German cities or possibly Budapest or Prague.

    Thanks for your input!! We have reworked the itinerary a little bit and I think that this may be a bit more doable!
