help deciding between 2 itineraries!

Jump to last reply

Hi - We are travelling to Europe from New Zealand next September (husband/myself and 14 year old daughter). I have two itineraries I am trying to decide between.

1) Barcelona 5 nights, Cinque Terre 3 nights, Florence 3 nights then Rome 5 nights
2) Barcelona 4 nights, Amalfi 4 nights, Florence 2 nights, Cinque Terre 2 nights and Rome 4 nights.

We are interested in wondering around and soaking up the culture/atmosphere rather than spending heaps of time in museums and art galleries - thought we could maybe skip Florence for this reason but have heard the atmosphere is great even if you are not into all the art etc. We plan to see the very main tourist sites but to tell you the truth I would prefer seeing people, eating good (not expensive) local food, I love cobbled streets and little shops and markets. I want to be able to walk out of our accommodation and straight into the thick of it on some days as well as having some days that are a little more full with site seeing etc. I know its probably easier to just do either CT or Amalfi however really struggling to make a decision between the two and hence have the 2nd itinerary as an option that combines the two.
Any thoughts on itinerary will be greatly appreciated (ps have been to Venice so dont need to add that into itinerary). PS, I will be celebrating my 50th birthday on our trip and would love any suggestions for an amazing experience/dinner venue etc to celebrate that! Thanks in advance:)
