Help me fill in the blanks!!!

Jump to last reply

I am posting AGAIN because you guys have been very helpful so far.

My husband (38) and I (28) are heading to Europe next month. Everything is booked... 4 nights in London, train to Paris for 4 nights, flight to Florence for 4 nights and train to Rome for 3 nights.

I am now starting to plan details... where to eat, where to shop, what to see... I'm using tripadvisor but it's very overwhelming as each city has hundreds of activities listed.

So please help me get started by giving me your favorite things to see and do in these 4 cities. Things we love and want to explore - FOOD!!!!, local markets, I want to shop (!!), day trips to nearby places (especially in Tuscany). Things that we like less but also want to do include museums, art, historical landmarks (we want to see the major things but not make our trip revolve around them).

Should we do the hop on hop off buses? Rent a car in Florence? Buy the city passes to skip lines? Any and all recommendations and tips are appreciated :)
