More time in London or add Paris/Venice?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in Europe this summer for a long trip that includes Ireland and the Amalfi Coast as the highlights. We've found that getting from Ireland down to Italy is actually cheaper if we make some stops at some of the big cities along the way, which had already interested us so we've set aside a few days.

Let me start by saying that I know the time allotted here is nowhere near the time needed to do these cities right. We're still young (30) so we'll be back to Europe to spend more time in them, though probably not any time very soon.

That said, our options are to either spend two full days in London (not counting the travel days on each end), or to add another day and spend one full day in London and another in Paris, again not counting travel days. Additionally, instead of Paris we could do Venice for about the same price. We've been to Venice but only for a day and it was cold, rainy, and flooded (November) so we didn't really get to experience it. London and Paris we've never been to.

So basically, two questions...

1) London with two full days plus two half days (travel days), or London/Paris each with one full day plus three half days (travel days)?

2) Would Venice be worth doing over Paris?

Quick background. We are both 30 and aren't obsessed with hitting tourist spots, and aren't really museum people.
