advice for italy/spain/france

Jump to last reply

I am doing a cruise with family from rome, to marseille, barcelona, velencia, mallorca, then back to rome. After that I plan to do another 3-4 week backpacking trip across italy spain and france solo to see more places/re-visit certain places that i didn't spend enough time in during the cruise. This is my first trip to Europe and I'm interested in doing a mix of cities tours to see grand architectures, historic sites and more rural areas to see scenic paths. Here are a list of cities i plan to visit

Start in Rome - 2 days

Train to Florence - 3 days

Train to Cinque Terre - 4 days

Fly to Barcelona - 2 days

Fly to Seville/Granada - 4 days

Fly to Tenerife - 3-4 days

Fly Paris - 3-4 days

I think it will give me a good balance of nature and cities experience.

Do you think each places will offer different experience?

Would you route it differently to optimize travelling?

So far I have only planned Paris, are there scenic places to see in France near Paris?
