London, Paris and Italy in 1 month

Jump to last reply

Hello. I've been reading the forums for a couple weeks now and, first thing, I must thank you all for the great info.

I'm brazilian and planning a trip to Europe between September and October (September 12 and October 14) with my wife and our little daughter (3 years old). Last year we've traveled to Portugal and Paris (15 days only), but this time we are aiming to a longer trip.

Our current itinerary is this:

September
13 - Arrive in London
14 - London
15 - London
16 - London
17 - London
18 - London
19 - London
20 - Mont St-Michel
21 - Mont St-Michel
22 - Mont St-Michel
23 - Paris/Disneyland Paris
24 - Disneyland Paris
25 - Disneyland Paris
26 - Disneyland Paris
27 - Paris
28 - Paris
29 - Paris
30 - Paris

October
1 - Paris
2 - Venice
3 - Venice
4 - Florence
5 - Florence/Pisa
6 - Florence/Assisi
7 - Rome
8 - Rome
9 - Rome
10- Rome
11- Rome/Pompei
12 - Rome
13 - Rome
14 - Back to Rio

And now, the problems:

1. Mont St-Michel is a logistic nightmare! I didn't want to go all the way to Paris and then take the train to Rennes and the bus to MSM just to do the same thing back to Paris. The only option I found was take the Ferry from Portsmouth to St. Malo and then the bus (?) to MSM. Either one are too tiresome and too expensive. Is there anyway around this problem? Should I sacrifice MSM?

2. I know that there are too many cities and too little time, so, I'm willing to sacrifice Venice and go directly from Paris to Florence. On the other hand, Venice is very close to Florence and this doesn't sound like a great economy of time or money. What do you think?

If you could, I would like to hear any thoughts on this itinerary.

Thanks,
Paulo
