Itinerary Advice for 2.5 Weeks in Europe

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be spending some time in Europe from June 14-July 1. We fly into Barcelona from Canada and here is what I have planned for our trip.

June 14-18 - Barcelona (3.5 Days)
June 18 (am) - Fly Vueling to Nice, France.
June 18-21 - Day 1 in Nice, Day 2 Cannes, Day 3 Monaco
June 21 (am) - Train or Bus to Cinque Terre, Italy
June 21-23 - 2 Days to relax in Cinque Terre
June 23 (am) - Travel to Florence/Tuscany by Car or Train
June 23-25 - Spend 2 Days in Florence or Tuscany. 1 Day visiting each.
June 25 (am) - Travel to Rome by Car or Train
June 25-July 1 - Rome. Make 1 day trip to Naples/Pompeii
Jule 1 (am) - Fly back to Canada

So in summary, 3.5 days in Barcelona, 3 Days for Nice, Cannes and Monaco, 2 Days in Cinque Terre, 2 Days for Florence/Tuscany, 5.5 Days in Rome with 1 Day trip to Naples/Pompeii.

I know this is a lot of traveling around for 2.5 weeks and we are prepared for a busy vacation. I also know that I won't have enough time in any 1 spot to see all of the attractions. This is our first trip to Europe, so our goal is to get a taste of the great spots from Barcelona to Rome.

Right now we are starting with a more detailed itinerary for Barcelona and I think 3.5 days is good enough to see quite a bit. We are now starting to plan more details for our next stop in Nice, but I wanted to ask what you all think of my overall plan for our travels.

We are also considering using AirBnb for all of our stops. I have heard nothing but great things and I think it would be a great way to save some money on hotels so we can spend more on attractions.

Thanks!
