16 days Venice to Paris

Jump to last reply

I have sixteen full days, not counting arrival and departure dates, and I'm tempted to break it up between Venice > Florence > Nice > Paris (or Marseille, but probably Paris).

This is a faster pace than I usually travel - I try to aim for five to seven days in a city - but I have no idea what to cut! The feedback I'm looking for is, for those who know the cities: can this be done without feeling rushed? Or do I need to make some hard choices?

I enjoy art, architecture, and just walking around and exploring. I can spend a couple days just doing this. I'll go to the theater if there is something playing.

I have been to Paris twice now, so I am fine with just a weekend there. I spent five days on an island off the coast of Venice in December when I was younger. I was poor and Venice was cold, empty, and lovely, and I told myself I would return soon. That was 25 years ago.

My current thoughts are:

- arrival Venice mid-afternoon
three days Venice
five days Florence
five days Nice
three days Paris (final weekend)

(I also speak French and some Italian, and I have enough miles to fly there first class. I'm hoping that mean I'll be refreshed and not haggard the first day!)
