Trip changes- added Paris and Florence!

Jump to last reply

I changed my trip around last night. Basically added a week and replaced NYC with Paris. So now I have another night in both Rome and London, nearly a week in Paris, and 3 nights in Florence between Venice and Rome.

So Paris and Florence are the two completely new additions and now j have more planning to do. Lodging is all taken care of. Reccomendations for food would be much appreciated.

Does anyone have tips for eating inexpensively in Paris? I'm a little more budget minded now that I've added a week, but I'd rather have more time than shopping/dining money.

What do you love doing in Florence? I'd love to hear about your favorite sites. I'm going for the Accademia and Uffizi mostly, but I'd also like to see some of the city. are there any good free or inexpensive walking tours?

I'm still tentatively considering a day trip to Pompeii from Rome. I realize it will certainly be dependent on the weather. But one of the issues I'm encountering is that most of the tours I had bookmarked are now mostly too expensive for my blood. There's a walks of Italy tour I'd consider but because of winter scheduling, there's only one day I could go. Not optimal. Is it advisable to independently tour? Are there any good audio guides for that? I figure I'll go to Naples for the Christmas alley and the national museum and then visit Pompeii if the weather allows. Pompeii is on my bucket list and I'd hate to pass on it when I'm so close!

Are there any museums/sites that you advise buying tickets ahead of time? So far I have Borghese. I generally play it by ear but I expect that early January might be busy in both Rome and Paris.

Are there any good day trips from Paris in case I need a break? The two obvious ones that everyone I know has suggested are Disney and Versailles but neither sound all that fun in the winter. Any small cities or villages that are easy to reach and would be interesting even in January?

Thanks so much for any suggestions you can give me!
