Italy or Spain

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I are planning a trip to Europe in October. We've never been to Europe. She is an adult too (late 30's). We're deciding between Italy and Spain. We love to be outdoors. We want to experience the culture, people, art, archetecture, country-side, food etc!
We want to stay in boutique-type hotels - No large chain hotels.
So I have 2 questions:
1. Spain or Italy for first trip to Europe?
2. And then where in each location?

I'm leaning toward Italy. I've read about Cinque Terre and think we would love the hiking. But also want to experience Florence. We have about 10 days - 12 includiing 2 days for travel - is it possible to do both? Open to ALL suggestions!

Thanks very much.
