Help with London / Italy Plans

Jump to last reply

This being our first trip we're planning abroad, I'm a little overwhelmed.

We're thinking of spending a week(ish) in the UK with London as a base, and a week(ish) in Florence, with a lot of small Tuscan town exploring. (We'll have a car.)

We're both crazy for London, and being from New York City, the size and scope of London and getting around probably is not going to shock us much. But I'm also a little afraid we'd start to feel like we're in "NYC overseas." We'd want to see a few of the major sights, but most of the London leg wouldn't be about major tourist attractions.

Anyhow. I ramble, Point being, the more I read about London, the more I think we might want to take a few days off of the London week and spend more time in Italy. We're quiet vacationers and like to amble around exploring. We love food, wine, history.

I guess there are no real solid answers here, but I'd love to hear some personal opinions from other travelers who enjoy quiet trips, discovering on their own, and exploring.
