London and Paris Trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are thinking of going to London and Paris for our Honeymoon. Another option would be to go to London and somewhere in Italy like Rome, Venice, or Florence. We would leave on May 15th (arrive around noon on the 16th) and return on May 31th. Not sure when we would want to make the change from London.
- Total budget is around $8k USD ($2.5k flight, $2.4k hotel, $1.8K food, & $1.3K other). If we spend less on flights and hotels then it could go towards food and the other stuff or just save some. Does this seem reasonable? Also does anyone used WestJet, they seem to have the best flight prices? What is a reasonable price for a flight?
- As far as a place to stay in both places we do not need a super nice hotel, but something nicer than a motel 6. A B&B would also be an option. A/C would be needed. It would be nice if they had a central location in both places. Does anyone have a suggestion?
- We want to do a scenic train trip from one or both of the cities. We want to do a day trip or two out of the city (could be part of the train trip) to a less city like location. Any ideas?
- We would prefer to use public transportation and not rent a car. Even renting bikes and riding around the city would be fun.
- In London we would minimally want to do the following (touristy things): See the Tower of London, Go to a museum, See a play/musical/show, see a castle, see big ben, and go to a market (for shopping and food).
- In Paris we would minimally want to do the following (touristy things): Eiffel Tower, Luxembourg Gardens, and Picasso museum.

Any input is appreciated.
