Hi, My fiance and I are taking off to Europe for our Honeymoon in June and can’t decide on the last leg of our trip. We fly into Paris, have 4 days in Paris, night train to Munich, 4 days in Munich, and from there we can’t decide whether to go to Venice and Rome or relax on the Amalfi coast for the last portion. Our flights fly out of Rome so from Munich we have 6 days before our flight leaves from Rome. Any ideas?

@sverstrepen: Rome was a must happen on my list. We will be in Rome in mid June ourselves. Between Venice and Rome my friend who lived there for a year said that there is more to see and do in Rome while Venice is more about relaxing. Perhaps that would help you decide. Though now that the Sistine Chapel is open again i can’t wait to see Rome! Have a great trip!

I’d be interested in hearing what your plans are in Paris.. We have a couple of days there at the end of our honeymoon.

I would skip Munich and go to London and Rome instead. Have a lovely trip!

I would do Venice and Rome over Amalfi coast. I just did a trip to Italy and did 5 days in Sorrento and it was nice, but 6 days was too much time there. I think it’d get boring and the time would be better spent 2 days in Venice and 4 days in Rome. Here’ s a recap I did of each of the places: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-italy-switzerland-trip-recap

Venice and Rome for sure! I’ve been to both, and you don’t need much time in Venice at all. You could pretty much do everything in 2 days. Rome has a lot more touristy things to do so spend a majority of your time there! I spent a week in Rome and barely had time to do all the things I wanted to do, and I spent 3 days in Venice and we ran out of things to do.

I am German-so hell yeah you have to go to Munich! Don’t skip it;)!
We did a euro trip a couple of years ago-also by train, and I saw both Rome and Venice as well as the Amalfi coast. I would strongly suggest you to see Rome and Venice! Amalfi is nice and all, but we only went there for a day-it is a nice scenery, but there is not a lot happening there. We mainly just saw it because we went to Pompeij. If you only want to relax it is better but otherwise pick Rome and Venice!
I loved Italy, but in my opinion Paris is wayyyy overrated. It is always rainy, people are rude, and you really have to watch out that you don’t get robbed by the gypsis-seriously, even their kids tried to rob us! The South of France, especially Cannes is way nicer;)

The amalfi coast should be nice that time of year. pp said “yes it’s beautiful, but..”
Sorry, but if you are into beautiful places, that is the understatement of the century. Also, the food! The food in that area is ridiculously good! The south of Italy is so amazing.
Im not going to tell you not to spend time in Rome or Venice. . But Venice for me is a one day deal. Rome is great and obviously a must. I wouldn’t spend less than three days there if you have the time. I say you should visit Venice, fly down to Naples, rent a car and travel for two days, seeing outside of the tourist bubble, then go to Rome before flying out. But that’s just me.

Do not skip out on Munich!! We LOVED Munich & was our favorite spot when we traveled around Europe for 2 months.
Personally, I would cut down the Paris & Munich to 2 days each, then travel to Venice for 2 days & spend 1 day in Rome (day before you fly out).. This leaves you with an extra couple days… How many extra? Maybe you could throw in Zurich?
We loved Zurich, you could paris > munich > zurich > venice > rome (??)
When I studied abroad in Italy we visited Rome in 1 day. It was a full day, but do-able (as long as you don’t want to spend all day in a particular museum).
For Munich & Paris look into the “New Europe Tours” http://www.neweuropetours.eu/ – they are FREE, you just have to tip.. I never had a bad tour while I was there!
