2 Months in Europe, France, England, Spain, Italy Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi my Fiancee and I are planning our first trip to Europe, and I really need your help! We planned this trip last summer and bought tickets but unfortunately things really crashed around us and we lost our money and tickets and didn't end up leaving. :(

That being said we are two students, I'm going to law school in the fall, he medical school in the fall and we will be far from each other when we are studying so this trip means much to us.

Onto the trip, I want to keep it budget friendly. We love nature, historical sites, local culture and FOOD. Also, I want to strike a balance between visiting touristy sites and local sites. I really don't know how to go about picking the cities but we have about two months to work with in France, England, Spain and Italy. I have somewhat of a general breakdown of dates and places but please fill me in on where to go, what to see, what to eat, ETC. I know this is a tall order but I will very much appreciate any help you can give. (We are from los angeles)

April 1-2 LAX-Heathrow
April 2-10 England
-Bath, London
April 10-11 England to France
April 11-18 France
-Paris, Giverny, Versailles
April 18-19 France to Italy
April 19-May 3 Italy
-Florence, Venice, Rome, Bologna (any other cities you'd recommend)
May 3-4 Italy to Spain
May 4-18 Spain
-Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Valencia, (Sevilla maybe)
May 18-19 Spain to LAX

That leaves May 19-31 about 12 days for any time extra in any of the countries or cities. Let me know of which countries to expand on or which cities to spend more time in. Also, please feel free to tell me what cities not to go to as well, and add extra cities we might not know of. We LOVE little towns, balancing urb and country would be wonderful as well.

I am so overwhelmed, I have no idea how to temporally situate much of this.

PLEASE HELP! THANK YOU!
