Two and a Half Week Birthday Vacation

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are currently planning a large trip to celebrate our 30th birthdays next year (We will be traveling the beginning of June). Our budget is around $5,000, which will include everything, except airfare. We have about two and a half weeks.

We usually spend our vacations at the beach. This time I was thinking of something different since we will have an extended period of time. We are very active and enjoy the outdoors. I am looking to experience different cultures and enjoy new foods.

I was considering France and Italy; Paris, Nice, And Two cities in Italy (Venice, Florence or Rome).

1. Would this be possible with our budget? (We do have Starwood points that we could use for hotels)
2. Does anyone have any other suggestions of other places we could go? We don’t mind large cities but would also like somewhere to relax and take things at a slow pace. Open to all ideas, doesn’t have to be Europe.

I truly appreciate everyone’s time and input!

Thanks,
