Senior Women Hit the Road

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My friends and I are trying to plan a 2 week trip to Europe (our first) next Spring (maybe late April, early May). There is quite a bit of anxiety on my part as I am expected to see to all of the planning. But my friends are great travelling companions because they never complain about the final details as long as they don’t have to set things up.

Our goal is to spend less than $5000 if possible. We want to fly from the USA to London, take the train to Paris and fly to Rome.
I have allowed $300 per night for hotel simply because I understand there may not be triple rooms in some places. What do you think about renting short term apartment space? We are all seniors (60s – 70s) and even thought our spirit is willing to walk, our various body parts are no always compliant. So we would like to be within a ¼ mile of the subway.
Transfers are not included because we may end up taking a taxi instead of the shuttle or metro.
Food was hard to estimate, but we have 2 Diabetics and they require something more than junk and snack food.
What do you all think? If it is not do-able we can adjust the trip. Rome could be deleted if necessary.

PLAN: 14 days total

Charlotte  London (4 Nights)  Train to Paris (4 nights)  fly to Rome (4 nights) fly home to Charlotte

‘Open –jaw’ flight - $1350
Train - $150
Hotel -- $1200 (12 nights at $300 per night divided by 3)
Tours - $600
Food $700 (50 per day - 30 for dinner, 10 b’fast & lunch)

TOTAL - $4000
