We have already booked our rooms. I did London, Paris, and Barcelona in 8 days a few years ago. Taking the morning trains won't be an issue. I travel for work and just drove 7 hours around Illinois the other day so I think I can do the move around bit. We took one of the days of our time in ...

I'm going with 2 gfs and we spent $1600 on all airbnb accommodations for 11 nights. So only 5-600 each. I don't really hard budget on vacations, I'm thinking $1-200/day spending. Each day differs, so some days will be spent hiking or doing a tour. I doubt I'll spend $2k but who knows. I heard everyt...

Hey, I changed the itinerary. 2 nights in Venice 2 nights cinque terre 3 Florence 4 Rome. I'm thinking of using the last day to day trip to positano. I figure if you get on a train in the morning it's not a big deal to move around a lot. ...
