14D13N : London - Paris - Italy

Jump to last reply

This is supposed to be a 17D16N trip but owing to potential leave issues, has been cut down to 14D13N. :(

Just wanna know what you think about the following draft itinerary:

Day 1 - 3: London. We'll be arriving early morning of Day 1 via a direct British Airways flight from Singapore.
Day 4: London & Paris (will be taking 12nn train from London to Paris)
Day 5 - 7: Paris
Day 8: Paris to Venice via an 11am~ easyJet flight. Overnight in Venice
Day 9: Take 1pm~ train from Venice to Florence. Florence will be our base for the next 3 days
Day 10: Florence to Pisa Day Trip (via Train)
Day 11: Florence to outlet shops: Space & The Mall (the ladies in our group say this is a must)
Day 12: Take 1pm~ train from Florence to Rome
Day 13: Vatican.
Day 14: Rome. Flight back to Singapore at 8.45pm

Trip starts around last week of April 2015. There will be 4 of us and this will be our first long trip out of Singapore (longest we've flown is Singapore to Sydney) so I am not sure how jetlag -- if any -- will affect us (admittedly I haven't factored it during planning -- haven't got a clue).

Weather wise, it seems the temperature during our travel period is around 10 deg celsius so I guess a cotton undershirt and a (quite thick) fleece jacket should suffice?

Having said the above, I don't really have specifics yet as to what places (museums etc) we will be visiting at this point but I'm quite certain that it will most likely be the major tourist attractions.

For the london to paris train trip, do we need to go through immigration counters on our way out of london and in of paris (similar to airport process)?

For the train trips in Italy, it seems it will be better for us to just purchase point to point tickets rather than a rail pass?

For accommodation, we are looking at getting a 2 bedroom unit from Airbnb with a nightly budget of 200 EUR / 250 USD. As I haven't tried Airbnb before, appreciate if you can give us tips/advise on what to look for, specially in choosing the location of the apartment/unit. Also should you have a particular unit to suggest / recommend, appreciate if you could share it to us.

Thanks in advance to all those who will spend time replying to my post.
