First Time Using Fodors: Only 9 Days to vacation in Europe, Please Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone! I have heard great things about this site so I have decided to give it a try. I hope I can get some help with our travel plans for a short trip to Europe. I already know 9 days in Europe is not a lot of time, but it is all the time my husband and I have so we want to make the best out of those 9 days. (we actually have 11 days but those extra 2 are our travel days from the NYC area and then wherever we leave out of in Europe) We will be traveling the end of June into early July 2013.

My husband and I are in our early 30's and both love the history that Europe offers. We love great food & wine, sightseeing at "must see" sites but also taking a stroll together to discover parts of a country that may not be as touristy. We love beautiful scenery & views: mountains, oceans, lakes, buildings, fountains, statues, castles, we love it all. We have both been to England & Scotland, and will travel to Italy in September (Ravello, Positano, Capri, Rome, & Florence) for a friend's wedding. I do not think we will be looking to spend a day on a beach as we can do that at home in the summer, however some days we may want to do some sightseeing and include some down time to just soak it all in.

I have a list of places I would love to see one day, but obviously can't do it all and with only 9 days it is very hard to choose. Is it better to stay in one country and do a few day trips or could we somehow visit two countries?
