Hi there, my husband and are wanting to fly to Europe this September. We live in Melbourne, Australia & this is our first time to Europe.
We have a total of 10 days, but we understand that 2 days will be taken travelling to and from Europe.
Yes, this is way too much to do in 8 days. I understand that each of these cities could be done alone in 8 days, but we don't have the luxury of this. We will not be returning back to Europe anytime soon as we have 3 small children under 5 years of age financially we won't be able to do this in a long time.
What is the best way to fit in these 3 places?
What is your advice in making this work?
How should we travel between countries & in what order?
Our novice idea was to fly Melbourne to Barcelona, stay 3 days then do an overnight train to Paris. There stay 3 days, then overnight train from Paris to Venice. Here stay 2 days then fly out from Venice region to Melbourne?
The aim of our trip is to have a short romantic European getaway. To walk around and enjoy where we are, see beautiful sites, immerse ourselves in the new environment, enjoying great food.
Please note we are not architecturally or art inclined but not adverse either. Our only desire is to have lunch/dinner at Eiffel Tower. Yes, we are simple, young people, in our late 20's.
Thank you in advance for your helpful tips.
