Input on April 2016 Europe trip

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 10-day trip for our 10-year anniversary. We are planning to go at the end of April, which is the best time of year based on our work schedules (though I'd ideally like to go in May for slightly warmer weather). This is the outline we have so far:

1. London - 1 night - main thing he wants to see is Harry Potter stuff, pubs and maybe a soccer game. I've been there a few times and seen the major sites.
2. Paris - 2 nights - mostly for the food!! (I have been there a few times also)
3. Nice and surrounding area - 2 nights
4. Genoa (maybe - have a colleague there)/Cinque Terre/and/or Tuscany - 3-4 nights
5. Venice - 1-2 nights

This might seem like a lot of hopping but we went to four places on our honeymoon (same length trip) and it was fine for us. London and Paris are definites and I'm very interested in Nice (never been). It's the Italy parts I'm less certain about. We don't like museums (or religious history) that much, more walking around, beautiful/unique scenery, eating, drinking and relaxing! I realize CT is a lot about hiking and that is OK for 1 or 2 days (2-3 hrs/day). I have been reading how crowded/touristy it can be, and I'm also wondering about the weather in April. I'm wondering if it would be better to limit the time there and focus on Tuscany instead? I have always wanted to stay in a castle. We're not opposed to renting a car but I think training would be better.

Any input is welcome.
