Europe Advice -- First Time There, Traveling Mid-April to Early May 2011

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I will be traveling to Europe for the first time and would love any advice you may offer. We're flying in and out of Barcelona and will be in Europe for about 15-16 days incluidng over Easter. Places we'd love to see include London, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Venice, Florence and possibly others -- depending on what great suggestions we receive :) We have no idea what to do, the best way to get around, or what would be a good deal vs. a bad deal. If possible, we would like to spend no more than a few thousand dollars for the entire trip. We just really want to see these places while we're young and can do it. If you would be so kind as to help answer any of the following questions, we'd really appreciate it.

Where should we go and when?
What's the best way to do everyting on a moderate budget?
What are sites we definitely shouldn't miss?
What cool things are there to do besides visit sites in the various places?
Where should we stay?
What is the best way to get around?
Should we do the Eurail thing?
What should we bring / not bring?
What should we wear / not wear?
What are the best souvenirs?

Any other insider information would be great! Thanks so much in advance for helping us plan a wonderful vacation :)
