Questions about Rome, Venice, Florence, Positano and Paris

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

Just a few quick questions about a trip I have this summer with my husband (age 28) for our first time to Europe!

1. Is two nights in Venice enough to get a nice feel of the city or do we need a 3rd?

2. We were thinking of visiting Pompeii but not quite sure how/where to go from. We will be doing the following Paris (4 nights) - Venice (2-3 nights) - Florence (3 nights) - Positano (4-5 nights) - Rome (3 nights). All city to city transportation by train (except from Paris to Venice of course!)

3. From Florence, would we take a train to Salerno then ferry to Positano? Or is there a different option that is better?

4. Day Trips:
a) We were thinking of doing a day trip from Florence to Cinque Terre (guided) and another day trip to Tuscany for a vespa wine tour (also guided). Is Florence the best location to do these from?

b) We also were thinking of a day trip to Capri from Positano. Any thoughts?

5. Should we be looking at 4 nights or 5 in Positano? We wanted to relax, swim, etc but we are unsure whether this is the best location as it is high season. We are open to suggestions.

6. Food:
How much on average should we budget for food everyday? Some of the places do have breakfast, but we will likely do sandwiches and grazing throughout the day and then a nicer dinner (with wine of course!) Would averaging 130$ a day be enough (2500 for the 18-19 day trip)?

7. We are planning to be in Paris for Bastille. Just was curious what this was like? Is it a big deal with lots of festivities?

Thanks everyone!
