Itinerary Advice - Paris, Ghent, Rhine Valley, Venice, Florence, Rome

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Europe from mid-October to early November of next year, and wanted to get advice on squeezing in a visit to Rhine Valley and the Black Forest to my itinerary. Here's my tentative plans so far:

6 nights - Paris (Versailles, Fontainebleu)
2 nights - Ghent
3 nights - Rhine Valley/Black Forest
2 nights - Venice
5 nights - Florence with daytrips (Siena, San Gimignano)
5 nights - Rome

From my research the longest travel times would be Ghent to Rhine Valley, and Rhine Valley to Venice. I don't drive, so will have to rely on trains/buses/flights to get around. Initially my plans were Paris - Munich - Venice - Florence - Rome, but the more I read about Rhine Valley, the more enamoured I am of adding it to my trip! I'm open to suggestions though and started planning ahead so this itinerary it still very flexible.

About me: I live in SE Asia and have mostly traveled just around that region (Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam). I love food (especially cheese, chocolate, and coffee) art, and architecture. I'd love suggestions on food and museum tours-- I've read good things about Walks of Italy, Eating Italy, and Paris by Mouth's tours!

Budget is around 8000 Euro including flights. This would be my first trip to Europe, but (hopefully) won't be the only one. Flight duration and expenses from where I live mean I'd usually have to stay for 3-4 weeks to make it worth it though, so saving up for another one will take me a year or two to save up.
