2 Weeks in Europe. Please advise!

Jump to last reply

Hi, I've just started planning a Europe trip for myself, likely to take place sometime this October. I've worked out a rough draft of the cities that I want to visit, with a general focus on the arts (architecture, history, etc). I have not actually planned the itinerary for each day as yet, so advice on that is much appreciated as well. Please note that I'll be flying in from, and back to, Singapore. I'll be getting the France-Italy 4D Eurail.

Day 1 - Arrive morning/noon in London.
Day 2 - London
Day 3 - London. Leave for Paris in the afternoon/evening (2.5H).
Day 4 - Paris
Day 5 - Paris
Day 6 - Versailles (Day Trip)
Day 7 - Leave for Lyon (2.5H). Lunch in Lyon. Leave for Marseille at noon-ish (2H). Leave for Nice in the evening (2.5H). *Eurail Day 1*
Day 8 - Leave for Milan (5H) Lunch in Milan. Leave for Venice in the evening (2.5H) *Eurail Day 2*
Day 9 - Venice
Day 10 - Venice
Day 11 - Leave for Florence (2H). *Eurail Day 3*
Day 12 - Florence
Day 13 - Leave for Rome in the afternoon (2H) *Eurail Day 4*
Day 14 - Rome
Day 15 - Leave Rome in the afternoon/at night.

*The durations for the train journeys are from raileurope.com

So in all I'd have:
2.5D London
3D Paris (Incl 1D Versailles)
1D Lyon-Marseille-Nice
0.5D Milan
2D Venice
2.5D Florence
2.5D Rome

Day 7 is my "rest" day if you will. Might not actually hop off and on the train if I don't feel up to it.

So, that's it at this stage. Please comment!
