June or July dilemma...

Hi TA members

As we are planning for our vacation for this year, we were just wondering what could be a better time w.r.to London, Paris and Italy cities visit (first time visitors) - either 3rd week of June or first week of July. I read Q&A which talks about Summer vs Winter, but here the issue is more of a choice between a period of few weeks. Weather may be same and flight tickets are same (as of now) and hence its just convenience of visiting attraction in terms of cost/time and train travel between cities. We are family of three - couple and 12 years old daughter and first timers to this part of the world.Appreciate any suggestions / insights. Thanks in advance.

Unanswerable - all will be busy, weather could be variable. Trains costs etc will be the same in any of these weeks - why would they vary. Your choice

For the time period you are looking at there are no insights to give. None of those weeks coincide with school holiday periods, although major cities like London, Paris and Rome are always busy.

You want to get your inter-city transport booked up as soon as possible once you decide though. It gets expensive if you leave it until the last minute.

Not very different, but July tends to be a bit wetter than June. Tends to, but not always

Italy will be warmer (hotter) in July than June. If you are from Thailand, maybe it does not really matter. July would be busier though.
