Honeymoon 2015 (Advice Needed)

Jump to last reply

Hello,

My fiancé and I are in the process of planning a trip to Europe for our honeymoon. We will be arriving on December 14, 2015 and returning to the US on January 2nd, 2016. We are planning this trip ourselves, rather than going through a travel agent. We don't have too much experience with Europe, so I was hoping you guys could offer some basic advice. We know going in December, rather than more warm weather months, will likely change the dynamic and cost of the trip. I would greatly appreciate some feedback on which of the following itineraries will be more fitting for a honeymoon in December. I know the trip involves jumping around multiple countries, but we really want to experience each of these areas, if only for a brief period of time. From a budget standpoint, I would like to say we can keep the majority of hotels under $150 USD per night, which seems rather realistic in December, if that makes any bearing on which itinerary is best. My fiancé and I are both in our mid-late 20's and will be looking for a mixture of touring the historical areas as well as relaxing with a bottle of wine. Any and all advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Itinerary 1
Rome (Dec 14, 15, 16) 3 nights and train to Florence
Florence (Dec 17, 18) 2 nights and train to Venice

London (Dec 21, 22, 23) 3 nights and train to Paris
