First time Europe Trip - March/April 2013

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I've been reading some of the posts on the forum and i have a few questions of my own for my upcoming trip. I'm from the Caribbean so travelling with the train is going to be a very new experience to me.

I'm planning an 18 day trip to Europe. My initial plans look like this:

UK:
7nights - mainly to explore London and possibly do a day trip or two outside of London. I'm staying on Piccadilly, so some ideas on what to do will be greatly appreciated.

Paris:
2nights - Take a train from London to Paris and not to sure what to do except for visiting the eiffel tower and louvre.

Geneva:
1night - take a train from Paris to Geneva en route to Italy and overnight in Geneva.

Italy:
Turin: 3 nights
Venice: 1 night
Florence: 1 night
Rome: 4 nights

I know that spending one or two nights in any of those cities will not be enough but even if i go to spend a few hours to see the place, i'd be happy.

My questions:
Do i need to book train tickets in advance for travel from London/Paris, Paris/Geneva, etc?

My arrival and departure point is Gatwick. Will i have enough time if i fly from Rome to Gatwick to my final destination?

Can you guys suggest places to stay in Italy which would be close to the train stations?

Thanks in advance and if any of my questions are a repeat of what has already been posted on the forums - kindly accept my apology as i want to get specific answers to my specific questions.
