Help deranged aunt

Jump to last reply

Sixteen year old niece who loves to travel (been to Japan, Iceland, Rome and Paris) was visiting last night. She's been enthusiastically lobbying for a trip to London this summer. I explained that although we have loads of frequent flier miles, arrangements have to be made well in advance, especially for four travelers (18 year old sister jumped on board too). To demonstrate my point, I gave her our login info to Virgin Atlantic. I was astounded when she found lots of availability and, under enthusiastic duress, we booked four business class tickets to London, leaving on 9 July, returning 22 July. Now what??? I know it's going to be hot and crowded. Obviously we want to spend time in London, maybe a return to Paris by train. I'm also thinking Venice, which will be extraordinarily crowded and hot, but we'd really like to introduce them to this magical city. I'm looking for suggestions for places to add (maybe Lake Como?) and suggestions for accommodations for four. I must learn to resist the charms of teens who love to travel.
