First time in Europe in 2 months. Please help!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, my husband and I have never taken a vacation and just found out we are able to travel for our 10th wedding anniversary. We've always wanted to visit Europe, and this would be our first time there. We only have about 2 weeks from around April 19 to May 5. We're in our early 30s and thinking to start a family, so sadly, this might be our only opportunity in a long time. We come from a very small town in the US. This would be a BIG dream come true, but we're so overwhelmed right now. I really wish we had more time to research, plan, and save money. Any help you guys might give us would be highly appreciated.

Here is what we're thinking:

1 week in Italy:
-Fly into Rome, spend a night or two here. See Colosseum and Vatican City. Other must sees in Rome?
-Rent a car and drive around, maybe spend a night in Florence, a night in Genoa. Advise on car rentals?
-Stay in Venice for at least 3 days.
-Fly from Venice to Paris.

1 week in France:
-Eiffel Tower
-Other must see places, local restaurants, need a place to stay.

Does this look efficient? Do we need to spend more time in Italy? Is Naples worth the backtrack? Need help finding lodging, yummy food, and other must sees. Would love to hit the popular places but I'm concerned with waiting lines. Also I'm into structural photography, he's into woodworking, machines and cars. Are there any places to look at micro cars? He would love this very much.

Thank you so much in advance for your time and suggestions!
