Too little, too much?

Jump to last reply

First time, early 50's travellers to Europe, not sure when we can return.We have been advised not to try and cram too much into our 5 week trip, better to experience more fully one city than snapshots of several so we have planned accordingly. We are unsure, however, of the following 2 options for a 10 day component of the trip- basically should we squeeze Venice in- and would welcome comments.

Option1
5 nights London
5 nights Nice( incorporating the grand prix and a day trip)
31.05.11 - arrive Paris by train
1,2,3 June - Paris highlights, day trip
04.06.11 - depart for rome (fly)
5,6,7,8 - Rome highlights, day trips
09.06.11 - Depart Rome for Greece and islands(booked)

Option 2
5 nights London
5 nights Nice
31.05.11 arrive Paris by train
1,2 June - Paris highlights
03.06.11 Paris- Venice(fly)
04 - Venice highlights
05.06.11 Venice - Rome(train)
6,7,8, - Rome highlights
09.06.11 Depart Rome for Greece and islands
