First Trip to Europe!

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I are planning our first trip to Europe we received plane tickets as a wedding gift (Got married in August) to Europe and back, but so far that's all we have booked. We are a young couple 24 & 28 and neither have ever been, although my husband has German roots so we are pretty excited! I would love suggestions and advice as we plan our trip. This is kind of an itinerary we have as of right now. He likes history stuff, cars, beer, good food and I like art, good food, shopping, wine. :-) We will have a rental car in Germany, but otherwise we will just use public transportation in the other countries. We land in Rome and depart from London. I'm debating the Italy part of our trip right now we have May 1-4th in Rome and a night in Venice (5-6th) I'm wondering if we would be able to add on Florence and subject a day from Rome or if that would make things to crazy. Or if we should subtract a day from Rome and add to Venice. As far as Germany goes we are leaning towards the Munich/Southern Germany areas, but are still in planning stages and trying to figure everything out. We go the beginning of May. Have first class tickets so we plan to sleep on the plane ride to Europe so we can just go as soon as we land in Rome. I'm trying to stick to around $100-150/night for hotels (I figure we won't be in the hotel that much, just need something safe, clean, and offers a good breakfast would be a big plus as that's one meal we wouldn't have to pay for.) Thinking about having one nice meal a day and then a less expensive one for the other meal. I know we want to see the sistine chapel, and then the Efile Towel and that sort of thing. :-) Thanks in Advance! -Hannah
