This past summer we went to Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Sorrento, Pisa, and Brussels. I used expedia. Rome is a loud and dirty. We spent 4 days and felt like too much. Once you get over there you can fly or take trains. I will try to help you any way I can.

My friend is on a sort of similar trip to this now.  They flew into Istanbul, but in your case you could do somewhere in Italy.  Bought a Eurorail pass and are working their way west and then flying out of Spain (or for you London) or you could go in the opposite direction. 

Book your hotel rooms on the train if you want a flexible schedule or do it ahead of time and try and stay on schedule.

try tripadvisor.com. That’s where I go when I want to go somewhere that I’ve never been and don’t know anyone there. They have lots of travelers that have done what you did and more and knows just how to help you.

We’re planning on doing a multi-destination honeymoon in Europe too, next year after I have graduated. We want to go to Spain (Madrid, Barcelona), France (Paris, Southern France), England (London, Oxford, Cambridge, Stonehenge) and Germany (Berlin, Munich). We also want to go to Italy but that would be a whole separate trip on its own because there’s so many places in Italy that we want to go to!

Hubby is the one who’s going to handle the planning of the trip because he’s very much into flying and frequent flyer miles (that’s how we’re going to buy our first-class tickets, with his FF miles), but I think what he’s planning is on flying into one country, then taking trains or flights between countries, and then flying back home from another country. Like, flying into Heathrow but flying back from Frankfurt.

We did a 2 week pass and had to pay extra for 1st class reservations in Italy.

Be careful of trying to cram too many cities into a 10-14 day trip, especially if you’re planning to do a lot of sightseeing in each city. Just to spend 2 days in each spot you’ve listed, you’d need at least 12 days in Europe (excluding the days traveling to and from the US), and on 5 of those days you would spend at least a couple hours traveling between cities. Honestly, you may end up feeling like you’ve spent your entire trip traveling between locations and running from one site to the next.
