We've just decided on Paris for our Honeymoon on Oct 2 - Oct 11. A big part of the reason is that Paris is the only European city to offer a direct flight from our hometown of Cincinnati (I never underestimate the ease of travel as an important factor in a destination consideration). At first I was going to split the time between Paris and one other city, possibly Barcelona, but now I'm leaning on just doing all Paris...with some possible day trips to Normandy, wine country, etc. I have a couple questions that I'm hoping to get some help with:
1. I'm planning on reserving a nicer 4 or 5 star hotel, which run very expensive, and am hoping to keep within a budget on food...can we eat in Paris reasonably ($100 per day for both of us)?
2. Any good day trips for people who enjoy food, wine, history that are not too far away from Paris (hour and a half would be the most I'd like to travel)?
3. Is a day trip to London reasonable?
4. Does my plan sound reasonable or is this too much time in one city and perhaps I should reconsider my Barcelona plan?
thanks in advance!
