Planning your once-in-a-lifetime romantic European getaway? How many countries should you visit? How many cities should you include? My recommendation is no more than two countries that are within a day of travel from each other, and no more than two cities in each for a 2-week trip. If you try to fit any more than that into your two-week trip, you will be exhausted, and angry, and you might get a little hot-tempered.
The best way to spend two weeks in Italy? On a custom travel itinerary that includes, Venice, Florence, and Rome. Italy is a country that is easily traveled by train to visit these three iconic cities. Take a gondola ride along the canals of Venice, enjoy a Tuscan cooking class in Florence paired with wines of the region, and visit the historical sights of Rome. Trip tip: fly into Venice and return home from Rome.
Dreaming of Paris? Paris is a city that you could easily spend a full week exploring. For 7-10 days, you could add on day trips to explore the chateaus of the Loire Valley. If you will be visiting the Louvre, it is best to plan on spending a full day exploring all of the treasures within.
When in Spain, it is best to plan on a minimum of 10 days to get the best experience while you explore Madrid and Barcelona. You can add an optional tour to explore the beauty of Granada and the Alhambra.
There are so many beautiful places in Europe to explore. Ireland, Scotland, and England are just a few more ideas to stoke the fires for your European adventure. I would be honored to help you plan your romantic European getaway. Reach out to me here, when you are ready to get started.
