Help with itinerary - Italy / France

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are travelling to Europe for the first time in 2 weeks and I am struggling to finalise an itinerary because there are so many options available (I know it's late, we spontaneously decided a couple of weeks ago that we were going). At this stage, the only details I have confirmed are: land in London (we have friends there), go to Munich for Oktoberfest for 3 days/2 nights and then I'm stuck.... My plans are from Munich, go to Italy for 6-7 days and then to France for 4-5 days.. and then we go back to London. In Italy we would like to go to Rome, Florence and Venice and we will be taking the trains within Italy. In France we definitely want to go to Paris, and any other place would not be necessary, but a bonus.
- What would be the best mode of transport (fly or train) between countries? I have been looking at flying from Munich to Rome, travel by train up to Venice, and then fly over directly to Paris or train over to Lyon or Nice (if we can add another destination in France).
- What other destinations in France is a 'must see'?
- Any chance we can fit Milan in this trip?
We are extremely flexible with days, can add on a couple more days to the plan if necessary. We're in our late 20's and pretty easy going with what we want to see - countryside, museums, beaches, mountains, landmarks etc. Obviously, the cheaper the better however we are willing to spend more if it means we have a better experience.
I know it's a lot planning before we go (we fly out on 25th September) and I'm probably trying to cram way too much in, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Tara
