PARIS or AMALFI COAST - WHICH ONE?

Jump to last reply

I'm new to the Fodor's forum and am really enjoying reading all of the excellent posts! I value the input of the members and need your advice as to whether we should visit Paris or the Amalfi Coast.

We are planning our first trip to Italy for late September/early October of 2013. We plan to stay for 12 days and allow an additional 2 days for travel to and from. Originally had planned to:

Fly into Florence, spend 4 nights in Tuscany
Travel to Rome for 4 nights
Head to Amalfi Coast for 4 nights
Fly out of Naples back to US

When we learned that some flights to Italy from the US connect through CDG in Paris, we thought about shortening the stay at each location in Italy to 3 nights and spend 3 nights in Paris. I'm quickly learning that this isn't such a good idea..

SO - if you had to choose between Paris or the Amalfi Coast, which location would you visit? I'm now thinking we might fly to Rome, then travel to Tuscany, then visit Paris and fly from there back to the US.

I'd also love input regarding the airline that offers the best comfort and experience.

Thanks so much for posting replies!

Janet
