First Trip to Europe. Need advice on travel.

Jump to last reply

My wife and I (both 30) are planning a trip to Europe sometime in September of this year. It will be our first time in Europe and we will only have about 2 weeks (15 days) total for this trip. We are thinking about Amsterdam(3-4 days) , Paris(3 days), Venice(2 days), Florence(2 days), and Rome(3-4 days) and we will be coming from the United States. I know this is a lot of locations in a short amount of time but we are the type of people who like to see as much as possible in one place and then move on. We will only be visiting the main attractions at each of the locations.

We are looking for some advice on what the best starting location will be and what’s the best way (plane or train) to get from one location to the next. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
