Paris and London or Paris and Rome? (7 nights trip)

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Europe and we have narrowed down our preferred destination to either Paris-London or Paris-Rome.

The trip will be from Dec 23 to Dec 31. Arriving in Europe on Dec 24th and 7 nights.

I am a bit torn between the second city being London or Rome so I have a few pros and cons

Pros for London:
1. Flight will be cheaper. I see that round trips to London (LAX-LHR) is around $1200 while round trips to Paris is around $1700 (LAX-CDG) and there is no one way option for LAX-CDG without going into ridiculous pricing. So even if we do Paris-Rome we still have to make it back to Paris for the return leg of the round trip.

2. Distance is shorter, we should be able to take Eurostars between London and Paris as opposed to a flight between Paris and Rome. This will help on with getting back to London for the return leg of the round trip back to LA.

3. Rome would be saved for years down the line when we do something like Rome Florence and Venice trip (SO does want to see Venice a lot)

4. Maybe catch a premier league fixture on boxing day as I am a Liverpool fan or at least experience watching a match in a pub with a crowd as I am often watching it alone at 6AM in west coast USA.

Pros for Rome:
1. We are more interested in the sights in Rome compare to London.

2. We would like the experience Italian cuisine.


So I am stuck between the better budget and shorter travel distance of London-Paris and more interest in the sights of Rome and Paris. Which one would you suggest?
