3 Week Honeymoon in October...Italy-France-Spain...need advice please...

Jump to last reply

Ok so its my first European extravaganza and I want to make sure I'm not over-extending ourselves. Here's the loose plan...

We fly into Venice on Oct 11 and then fly back from Madrid on November 2. We plan to do Venice, train to Florence and then Rome; fly to Paris (possible day trip to Provence) and then fly to Barcelona, train to Madrid.

My gut is telling me its a little too much, although we do have 23 days altogether. Right now, if I had to cut anything it would be Barcelona, and I'd just go straight from Paris to Madrid.

Also trying to nail down how many days to spend in each place. Here's what I'm thinking:
4 nights in Venice, Florence and Rome
5 in Paris (provence day trip)
and then 5 in Spain

This is still very loose and the only thing set in stone is flying into Venice and out of Madrid. Any advice would be very appreciated!
