My daughter (16) and I will be traveling to Europe this summer. I went to Italy many moons ago but consider myself a first timer. She is an artist and passionate about going to Paris, Rome, and Florence. I will add Venice to the itinerary and would love to make a stop in Germany. We are definitely on a budget, but want to make the most of our trip and have about 2-2.5 weeks (July). I would love some assistance on where to begin, how to make the most of our time, and do so without spending a fortunate. I've read a couple of guidebooks and many forums but looking to the experts here. Thanks in advance.
