Planning a trip to France, Germany, and Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I are wanting to take a trip to Europe in two years, after I graduate from my master's program, and will be flying out of either Austin, TX or New Orleans, LA. We currently live in Texas but have family in Louisiana, so we will choose our departure city based on price. Seeing as neither of us have traveled to Europe before, could anyone give me advice as to how early I should start planning and give any suggestions on an itinerary? We want to start in France and work our way to Germany and Italy for a three-week trip. We plan on seeing cities such as Paris, Arles, Dresden, Munich, Venice, Florence, Rome, and maybe Sorrento. I'm wanting to leave the US in September and would like to make it to Munich for Oktoberfest. Just to give everyone an idea of our interests, we love history, food, and outdoor adventures. Thanks for any help you can provide!
