Well, I like seeing a ot of places on one trip too (as oposed to those who stay an entire month in just one city) but you may be pushing it a bit by staying only one night in every sinlge city. Once you get there you are not going to want to leave less hat 24 hours later!! Pehaps on smaller cities it's fine, but there's sooo much to do (specially in London and Paris).... personally I'd skip Belgium (lovely place, but not worth it with the amount of time you've got) and stay a little longer in Paris and London instead...
I dunno.. thats my two cents anyway...

Well, first off, not being a fan of Amsterdam, I'd skip it, but I know that's not a popular idea!

Second, Frankfurt is ... not the best of Germany, I don't think. Unless you have a specific reason for going there, you might consider another destination - Cologne (Koln), Heidelburg, Berlin (though that's far from your route, I realize), for example. To me, Frankfurt is mostly a business centre, not so interesting culturally. But that's my opinion again.

Consider Brugges instead of Brussels, just for a change. The canal tour I took there was really a beautiful and relaxing way to spend a few hours, and it was very different from the other places I visited on that trip.

I assume from Gradoli you'll be able to make a day trip or two out into the countryside? We just got back from a week in Italy, and the countryside looked very appealing, although we didn't have time to take it in, unfortunately.

Sounds like a fun trip, though!
