And jean; If you read my second paragraph, I agreed with you.

And also my third paragraph for 3 star hotels. There is no problem with what you are saying and what I am saying.

On booking.com you can find many reviews that for me are more reliable the TA.

Thanx so much everyone for your kind tips!

Its so refreshing to see how people can be so generous with their suggestions and advice, we really appreciate all the effort.

After reading some of the comments i think i may need to skip NYC but i'd rather put more time into Europe as we have never been there before.

By the way, has anyone flown AIR CHINA? they have such cheap flights from sydney to paris but i wasn't sure if we should go ahead with them :/

Anywho, thanx eveyone. xxx

Hi Melissa,
We recently had three weeks in Europe - with Emirates from Melbourne to London; Eurostar to Paris; overnight train to Venice; train to Florence; train t Rome; fly home.

I am confident that 3 weeks will keep you busy, but is enough time to have a good look at your European destinations - but I'd definitely skip NY this trip.

I looked at some of the cheap airlines - Air China; Southern China Airlines;Royal Brunei; Korean Air - the problem I found was that many of them were limited in destinations in Europe that they flew in and out of (we didn't want to waste time and money backtracking), or there were looonnngg layovers required to connect flights for the onward journey (again - it would have wasted precious time).

Peter's proposed schedule looks good - and it is definitely worth looking at Emirates - lots of flexibility in and out of Europe via their very busy hub in Dubai (which could also make an interesting stopover on the way home if you have the time!

Melissa, here are links to a couple of trip reorts that I wrote about (mostly) Venice. Rather long, but if you've got a lazy hour or two they may be of interest. I'm not particularly plugging Emirates, but they do have good connections into Europe. Emirates may be interesting come April, when their linkage with Qantas come on line.
