Hello All! I am looking for any information/advice on a trip we are planning in August. I am including our itinerary we have as of now. Will begin booking in Feb and looking for help conserving expenses while being frugal on. Plan to purchase all expenses prior to trip. Flight looks like $3330 is the best I can find. Flying to Rome on a Friday. Land on Sat morn.
Sat: Vatican/St. Peters/climb dome/Trevi Fountain. will buy Vatican museum ticket with a tour time $90.00 (for 2)Stay 2 nights in Rome (suggestions of where!!!) Should I buy a metro pass?
Sunday: Church at St Pere’s (we’re catholic) Pantheon/Coloseum/Old Forum. WHAT PASS WILL GET US IN the last 2 for lowest cost?) Could we possibly see the Pope? Do we have more time to see anything else?
Mon: Travel to Venice in the morning. Gondola ride/Glass blowing demonstration/ visit St Mark area. 1 night stay (SUGGESTIONS) Do I need a museum pass here?
Tues: Day in Venice/watch sunrise:] see market/ What about going to the beach? Evening: Overnight train (Thello) to Paris. Will have wine and pack picnic
Wed: Arrive around 9:30 in Paris. Notre Dame (go up tower) St Chapelle/Eiffel Tower/Arch De Triumph (to top) Eiffel Tower in evening. Need hotel for 2 nights in Paris Will get Paris pass & metro pass?
Thurs: Day in Paris/ Louvre/Orangeria/Moulin rouge Seine river cruise (?) We do not plan to stay long in the Louvre- I have been and my daughter is not into it but I’m making her see highlights. Monet is my FAVE- thus the Orangeria.
Fri: Early train to London. Red bus tour/pic in red phone booth/find Harry Potter train location/Big Ben/London Bridge. Train to Oxford? Stay at Oxford dorm apartment.
Sat: Visit Oxford (Suggestions of what not to miss) evening back to London.
Sun: Church at Westminster Abby in morning. Buckingham palace/Changing Guards.
Mon: Flight home I’ve roughly calculated this to cost around $5000. (No souvenirs in this)
Is this doable? Suggestions? This is a mother (41)/daughter (21 yo) trip. We are traveling light
