Italy/France/Ireland - Seeking Help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are trying to plan a trip to celebrate her daughter's graduation from college to take place September 2011 to include Italy, France & Ireland from New York. My initial thoughts are to fly into Florence and drive to and stay in Castellina (I visited for a short time previously and vowed I wanted to get back). They both want to see Rome (I've been before) so I thought perhaps we'd drive down to Rome and drop the car and stay a few nights before flying to Paris. After a few nights in Paris (which is my sister's pick), my niece really wants to go to Ireland and I do too - she's thinking Dublin and I'd like to experience a more rural area as well. We'll fly back to NY from there. Are we crazy to think we can do all of this in about 11-12 days? Any ideas about itinerary, where to stay along the way (hotel vs. apartment), particularly what areas of Paris and Dublin we should stay in would be greatly appreciated. In terms of where to stay, we don't plan on being in our room much at all, so a clean and basic accomodation works best. Rather spend money on great food and wine. Thanks so much for any help you are able to provide.
