My First Eurotrip

Jump to last reply

My 14yo daughter and I will be embarking on our first eurotrip in less than a week. We will be covering London, Naples, Pompei, Rome, Florence, Sienna/Pisa, Venice, Lourdes, Paris then back to London.
All air flights have been booked, but we have not booked trains to travel between Pompei to Rome, Rome to Florence, Florence to Pisa/Sienna, Florence to Venice - period covering 8 days.
As we will be leaving in 5 days (1/4/13), do we need to purchase rail tickets in advance to save on costs /time and ensure seating between major trips like Rome-Florence and Florence-Venice?
Do we need to pre-book tours to see Rome, Venice and Florence?
Any tips on where we could enjoy decent meals, souvenir shopping?
We're planning to bring 2 luggages to check in (total 40kgs) and leave 1 luggage with my daughter in London and carry only 1x 20k + 2 hand-carries as we travel around Italy/France. Would this be a sensible idea?
Any tips on transport, safety, food, shopping (on a budget) would be much appreciated!
