Help! Itinerary suggestion for 35 days in Italy and France.

Jump to last reply

I, 'Mom', am taking my 19 & 18 yr old boys, and 14 yr old girl on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to France and Italy this July. The 19 year old will already be in Barcelona so I was thinking of the other 3 of us flying into Barcelona ( may as well see it and make sure we find each other! ) on about June 27 and leaving Europe ( departure location tbd ) as late as August 1. So, I'd like to stay in Barcelona for 1 or 2 nights, then stay/see some of Provence & the French Riviera over about 5 days, then over to Italy, then back up north to Paris (flying?) and stay there for about 5 days with a day trip to WWII sites. In Italy, we definitely want to see Rome, Florence, Venice, some part of Tuscany, Positano/Pompeii/Amalfi coast and Cinque Terre. My husband will meet us in Rome and be with us for a week. We have a somewhat healthy budget, $30K, and don't mind staying in apts., B&Bs, and the odd nice hotel. We could do a quick flight once, and am willing to do any type of transportation ( trains, hired drivers etc. ) and day tours/guides. Please help any way you can. This may be the last big trip my boys ever do with me and I want to make it the best of their life! Oh, none of us has ever been to France or Italy.��
