First timer: Rome & Paris in 7 days??

Jump to last reply

I just made an impulse decision to try and do our first trip to Rome & Paris for late May or early June (yes, next month, hope I can pull of some last minute planning). I've been to Spain several years ago, but that is it for Europe and my husband has never been. I'm so overwhelmed about where to start.

First, we are in are mid-30's, very active and really just want to see the sights. We can probably only swing a 10day trip maximum which includes travel days. I've seen some package deals like through go-today travel and other websites that include airfare, hotels and then you can add on airport transfers, tours, etc. Because I don't have a ton of time to plan, I'm wondering if this might be the better way (and possibly cheaper) way to go.

Secondly, one of the package deals has 3 full days in Rome and 3 full days in Paris..is that enough? I also thought about just focusing on Italy and adding Venice and Florence, but I really am dying to see Paris too..I thought seeing Rome and Paris was a good compromise to experience both cities for a first trip, I just worry that we will be too rushed? I would probably want to add on at least one extra day in Paris.

Any advice for this newbie as far as how to book, time constraints with trying to see both of these cities in under 10 days, etc. I'm also a little worried because I am vegan so I worry that with the language barrier and all of the delicious Italian food with cheese in it that I'm going to have a hard time? That might be another forum question for me to pose. But, right now, I am just looking for any advice. This forum is awesome, so glad that I found it. Thanks for any advice!
