First Trip to Europe

Jump to last reply

We are starting to plan our first trip to Europe this December and are overwhelmed with all the options we have. Our options include; London, Paris, Milan, Venice, and Rome, but Paris is non-negotiable. We are foodies, shoppers, and like museums and art. For London, I feel it would be a good transition into Europe (as there is no language barrier, although I can speak French pretty well), and there is the Big Ben, Hyde Park, and shopping on Bond streets and Harrods. For Milan, they have excellent shopping and the Duomo, as well as being a good travel base to the rest of Italy. In Venice, they have the unique canals, aqua alta, and there isn't much like it in the world. And Lastly for Rome, they have the ancient temples, the Roman Forum, The Colosseum, great food, and good shopping. We will be going for 10-14 days (including travel time), and won't have time for all the destinations. I planned on staying in Paris for 5-7 days (including travel days), but don't know about the rest. Thanks in advance for all your help.
