Need help planning 21 days in Europe

Jump to last reply

Hi ... I'm new to this site and was very encouraged by reading all the travel posts. Many very knowledgeable travelers on this site!! My husband and I are planning our first trip to Europe and have allowed for 21-24 days of travel for June 2016. We enjoy food, culture and history. We like art and appreciate it but both my husband and I prefer being outdoors. I've chosen the following cities to visit and the days/nights are extremely flexible at this point.

Paris (5-6 nights)
London (5-6 nights)
Venice (3 nights)
Rome (5-6 nights)

However, when pricing out airfare ... I've found some awesome rates from SFO to BRU (Brussels) via Icelandair. I'm now rethinking my itinerary and possibly adding a few days in Belgium. Should I do it? or just pay the $600+ difference to fly direct to CDG. Also, flying home I found really good rates flying from FCO (Rome) to SFO with a possible 24 hour layover in Instanbul. Would that be worth a day trip? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!!
