In restaurants, the prix fixe option is a popular way to enjoy a set three- or four-course menu for a good price.
  • Although lunch is generally served from noon until 2pm in France, dinner is served from 7:30pm onward. Those wishing to eat earlier can stop at a cafe, where light entrées and sandwiches are available throughout the afternoon and evening.
  • Roman food is typically freshly prepared and varies depending on the season. Must-try bites include cacio e pepe (a simple dish of pasta, cheese and pepper) and supplí (a fried rice ball similar to Sicily's arancini).
  • For more authentic meals, try local trattorias, small restaurants set away from the main piazzas. A typical Italian meal includes wines and the occasional beer, followed by a few sips of after-dinner drinks like grappa or limoncello.
  • In Spain, on the tour extension, breakfast like a local with just a pastry and coffee. Then, tuck into a three-course lunch featuring a Spanish staple like savory seafood paella or grilled meat and fried potatoes. Dinner is less hearty than lunch and is served late, between 9pm and midnight. Snack on small plates called tapas any time of day.

From world-class landmarks to great shopping, dining, and entertainment, there are plenty of things to do and see in all three places. Whatever your interests, you can find lots of ways to fill your time while experiencing the best of these amazing cities.

London, Paris, and Rome itinerary

London, Paris, and Rome Itinerary

One of the things that brings me the most joy from running a travel blog is helping people plan their trips. Whether it’s through my blog posts or my travel planning services , I always love hearing how my readers have had a richer experience on their journeys.

A lot of my readers and clients ask whether you can do London, Paris, and Rome in one trip. Once I tell them how easy it is, they ask me how many days you need for a trip to all three cities.

I tell them I recommend spending 14 days in London, Paris, and Rome. It’s the ideal length of time to see each city without feeling rushed. It will even allow you to take a day trip or two if you’d like to see more.

To fill in the details, today I want to share the official A Lady in London itinerary for visiting the British, French, and Italian capitals.

Rome Street

How to Use The Itinerary

There’s no right or wrong way to spend your time on an itinerary in London, Paris, and Rome. My guide offers a mix of the big sights and the local places Londoners, Parisians, and Romans frequent.

I’ve spent years living in the UK capital, I lived and worked in Paris for a time, and I’ve visited Rome numerous times, so I know the cities well. I hope this blog post gives you a solid overview of what you can experience in each one.

When you’re planning your trip to London, Paris, and Rome, you can adjust the schedule to fit your personal interests and tastes.

Big Ben

Best Time to Visit London, Paris, and Rome

As far as what the best time of year to travel to London, Paris, and Rome is, there’s no right or wrong answer. Much depends on your preferences for weather, daylight hours, tourist crowds, and seasonal events and festivities.

That said, keep in mind that a lot of restaurants and other businesses (especially in Paris) close for summer holidays in August, so you’ll want to be aware of that if you visit at the end of summer.

How to Pack for Your Trip

In terms of how to pack for a trip like this, the three cities have a fairly similar climate. You can use my guide to what to wear in London to help you. Italy can be warmer than France and the UK, so bear that in mind.

Seine in Paris

Where to Stay in London, Paris, and Rome

There are plenty of options for hotels, apartment rentals, and other accommodation in London, Paris, and Rome. Whatever you prefer, the cities have a lot of good places to choose from.

Given how big all three cities are, basing yourself in a central location is a wise idea. You can see my blog posts about the best area to stay in London and the best area to stay in Paris for more ideas.

You can also find deals and book accommodation in London here , in Paris here , and in Rome here . With so many options, you’re sure to find a place that fits your style.

Rome Hotel Lobby

Day 1: London – Buckingham Palace and Westminster

After you’ve arrived and gotten settled into your accommodation in the UK capital , start your 14-day London, Paris, and Rome itinerary at Buckingham Palace.

You can time your visit to watch the famous Changing the Guard ceremony, or just admire the monarch’s London residence from outside the gates.

If the dates of your trip coincide with the seasonal opening, you can tour Buckingham Palace . It’s a great way to see the state rooms, gardens, and annual exhibition while you’re visiting. You can book tickets here (you’ll need to book well in advance).

Buckingham Palace Guards

When you’re done at Buckingham Palace, walk through the green expanse of St James’s Park, over to Horse Guards Parade, and into Whitehall and Westminster . These areas are home to some of the most iconic London landmarks .

Westminster Abbey is beautiful, Big Ben is a must on any London itinerary, and the Houses of Parliament are stunning to see. If you have time, you can tour the abbey and parliament . You can book tickets here .

You can also do my free self-guided walking tour in Westminster if you want to explore more of the area than just the main attractions. It will show you around the side streets and local places Londoners spend time in.

Westminster Abbey and Big Ben

In the evening, you can eat dinner near your hotel if you’re feeling jet lagged or if you had to get up early to travel. If not, you can see my recommendations for restaurants in London to find a place you like.

If you still have energy left after dinner, you can take an open-top bus tour to get a feel for the city. It’s a great way to get an overview of what London has to offer visitors. You can book tickets here .

Day 2: London – South Bank and the City

Start the second morning of your London, Paris, and Rome trip by exploring the South Bank .

Right on the Thames , this is an ideal place to take in the views from the London Eye, browse the book market, or soak up the scene on the river. You can get London Eye tickets here (it’s best to buy them in advance, as they can sell out).

There are always pop-ups, street performers, and other entertainment going on along the South Bank, so it’s fun to walk beside the Thames and see what’s taking place while you’re in town.

South Bank, London

As you make your way from Westminster Bridge to Tower Bridge, you’ll go by Tate Modern and Borough Market. They’re two of the UK capital’s most famous landmarks, and they’re both worth a detour.

The museum is a fun place to discover, and the fact that it offers free entry means you can go in for as little or as long as you’d like to. There are panoramic views from the top of Tate Modern’s Blavatnik Building as well.

A bit farther down the river, Borough Market is the ideal spot to pick up something for lunch. It’s fun to meander through the stalls to soak up the colors and scents as you make up your mind.

Borough Market in London

After eating lunch at Borough Market, cross London Bridge and make your way into the City of London . Don’t miss the sweeping views of Tower Bridge as you go.

From the iconic dome of St Paul’s Cathedral to the historic lanes by Bank station, this area has amazing architectural history . You can take my free self-guided City of London walking tour if you want to see the highlights.

If not, head east to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. You can tour the tower and the bridge, or just take them in from the outside. You can book Tower of London tickets here .

Tower Bridge, London

When the sun starts to sink, walk across Tower Bridge and over to Bermondsey Street . This place is a favorite of Londoners, and there are great pubs and restaurants with delicious food and drinks here.

Whether you want a classic pub meal of fish and chips, a heaping bowl of pasta, or an excellent tapas dinner, you can find it on Bermondsey Street.

Day 3: London – Notting Hill or Bloomsbury and the West End

If it’s a Saturday, I recommend starting the third day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary in Notting Hill . With its vibrant shops and lovely mews , this west London neighborhood is always a treat to explore.

You’ll be able to discover the iconic Portobello Road Market in all its glory on a Saturday, too. I recommend arriving early to avoid the crowds, particularly if you’re in town during the busy summer months.

Away from the market, my self-guided Notting Hill walk is a great way to discover the local highlights of the area. It will show you around to see everything from the high streets to the secluded corners and mews.

Colorful Houses in Notting Hill

After eating lunch in Notting Hill, you can meander down into Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park for the afternoon.

There’s no shortage of things to see and do in these expansive green spaces, from boating on the Serpentine to browsing the art galleries and touring Kensington Palace.

If it’s not a Saturday or you’re not keen on Notting Hill, I recommend spending time in Bloomsbury today.

You can go to the British Museum (it offers free entry), or walk around and take in the area’s many squares. My free self-guided Bloomsbury walk will lead you to the best places in the neighborhood.

When you’ve finished exploring, you can take the Piccadilly line of the tube from Russell Square to Hyde Park Corner and walk around the green spaces and gardens.

Bloomsbury Pub

When the sun starts to go down, walk or take the tube through Mayfair to get to Soho and Covent Garden . They’re some of the most exciting places in London.

There’s no shortage of fun spots to find dinner in the West End. Whether you go to a timeless classic like Rules or opt for one of the many new restaurants opening all the time, you’ll be spoiled for choice in this part of London.

After dinner, you can see a show. There are always lots of plays, musicals, comedy acts, and other entertainments on, and they’re enjoyable ways to cap off a day of sightseeing in the city. From dramas to comedies and farces, you have plenty of options.

Harry Potter Theater, London

If you’re still up for going out afterwards, the bars and pubs in Soho and Covent Garden are a lot of fun.

My favorite one is Cahoots, a London Underground-themed speakeasy just off Carnaby Street in Kingly Court. It’s one of my favorite travel-themed bars in the UK capital.

If you just want to wander around, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, the Covent Garden Piazza, and Leicester Square are always fun places to walk around London at night .

The National Gallery is also open until 9pm every Friday, so you can take in the collection after-hours if you’d like to. It offers free entry, so you can see as much or as little as you have time for.

Soho, London at night

Day 4 in London: London Neighborhoods or Day Trip

On the fourth day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary, you can either explore some of the prettiest areas in central and west London, or take a day trip.

If you choose the former, start your morning in Belgravia . This luxurious central London neighborhood is known for its cute cafes and shops, particularly those on Elizabeth Street .

You can follow my self-guided Belgravia walking tour to see the highlights of the area, or just meander through the elegant streets and quiet mews. My top picks include Motcomb Street, Belgrave Square, and Pimlico Road.

Building in Belgrave Square, London

From Belgravia, walk over to Sloane Square and the King’s Road in Chelsea . This is a fun place to go shopping and have lunch, and you can eat at one of the many cafes and restaurants here.

If it’s a Saturday , you can explore the food market in Duke of York Square. If it’s not, there’s still a lot to do here. The King’s Road is one of the best shopping streets in London , and the Saatchi Gallery is free to pop into.

If you want more direction, you can take my self-guided Chelsea walk to see more of the neighborhood’s beautiful side streets and riverfront area.

Chelsea Embankment, London

From Chelsea, make your way to upscale Knightsbridge to go shopping at department stores like Harrods and Harvey Nichols. Alternatively, you can go to South Kensington to visit some of the museums.

The Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and V&A are right next to one another. All three of them offer free entry, so you can spend as much or as little time as you’d like exploring their collections and temporary exhibitions.

In the evening, you can go to dinner at one of the many restaurants outside the South Kensington tube station. There are plenty of different cuisines on offer here, so you’re sure to find something that appeals to your taste buds.

If you’re up for ending your day in style, there are lots of good nightlife spots around Walton Street and the King’s Road. From pubs to clubs, you have plenty of options to choose from.

South Kensington Restaurant

If you’re more interested in taking a day trip from London , you also have a lot of options.

If you’re a fan of the English countryside, my favorite is a day trip to the Cotswolds . You can go independently with or without a car , or take a guided day tour . If the latter appeals, you can book a tour here .

There are lots of towns and villages in the Cotswolds you can visit. My top picks include Painswick , Bibury, Upper Slaughter , and Castle Combe.

Arlington Row, Bibury, Cotswolds

If you want to go to the seaside, Brighton , Deal , and Hastings are my top recommendations. They all have fun beaches and lots of shops and restaurants to enjoy.

If history is your cup of tea, Winchester , Windsor Castle , Bath , Stonehenge , Canterbury and Dover , Lewes , and Amersham are ideal places for you. Amersham is so close you can even do it as a half day trip from London .

If you want to see famous university cities in the UK, look no further than Oxford and Cambridge . These two are some of the most popular day trips from London by train .

Radcliffe Camera, Oxford

If you’re up for traveling further afield, you can take a York day trip from London . It’s a beautiful city in the north of England, and it’s worth a special trip.

And if you really want to get out of town, you can take a day trip from London to Europe . From Lille to Amsterdam , there are plenty of options.

If you want my recommendations for seasonal trips, you can take a look at my blog posts about spring , summer , autumn , and winter day trips from London for more ideas.

House on Portugal Place, Cambridge

Day 5 in London: St James’s, Mayfair, and Marylebone

Start the fifth morning of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary in St James’s . This elegant part of the city is known for its stunning royal palace , men’s shops, luxury hotels , private members’ clubs, and art galleries.

You can walk down Jermyn Street or Piccadilly and go into legendary department stores like Fortnum & Mason.

When you’re done, you can walk across Piccadilly to get to Mayfair . This high-end neighborhood is home to luxury goods shops, fine-dining restaurants, and the curving stretch of Regent Street.

You can take my Mayfair walk if you want to see the side streets and mews, too.

Mayfair, London

Mayfair is a great place to enjoy a meal or afternoon tea . Whether you opt for a laid-back place on Heddon Street or splurge on a tasting menu at a Michelin-starred restaurant, you have a lot of options for lunch.

When it comes to tea, I recommend Brown’s Hotel afternoon tea or the awe-inspiring yellow room at Sketch.

After lunch or tea, walk across Oxford Street and make your way into Marylebone . This is another of my favorite London neighborhoods , especially because it has one of the best high streets in London .

Marylebone High Street Pub

There are plenty of shops to keep you busy on Marylebone High Street . They’re ideal places to get a taste of London’s famous retail therapy scene.

From boutiques to high street names, this road has it all. My top pick for a place to shop in Marylebone is Daunt Books. It’s one of the best independent bookshops in London , and it’s a treat to see the Edwardian interior with its stunning oak galleries.

If you’re interested, you can take my self-guided Marylebone walk to see more of the area. It will take you around to see pretty mews, more shopping streets, and gardens.

Marylebone Mews Houses in London

After you’ve explored Marylebone, make your way over to Regent’s Park . This is one of the most beloved green spaces in the city, and it’s a delight to walk around. If you visit in summer, the rose gardens are beautiful.

When the sun starts to sink, you can head back to Marylebone High Street for dinner, or leave via one of the other exits from the park to eat dinner in pretty Primrose Hill , alternative Camden , or classic Fitzrovia .

Day 6: London to Paris – The Marais and Riverside Sightseeing

Start the sixth day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary with an early train to the French capital. You’ll arrive mid-morning, and once you’ve checked into your hotel in Paris you can start exploring the City of Light.

Paris Carousel

I recommend spending your first day in Paris in the Marais . This historic quarter is known for everything from its Jewish heritage to its stylish shops, delicious restaurants, and pretty Place des Vosges.

The Picasso Museum is here, too, and the famous Centre Pompidou modern art museum is on the border of the neighborhood.

There are lots of great places to eat here, so it’s easy to find a spot for lunch as you discover the area. My favorite for a quick meal is L’As du Fallafel, a casual spot with delicious Middle Eastern food.

Place des Vosges, Paris

When you’re done in the Marais, you can stroll down to the Seine and cross one of the bridges to get to the Ile Saint-Louis. This island in the river is home to fun shops, historic streets, and scenic views.

It’s a treat to walk down Rue Saint-Louis en l’Ile, browse the shops, and get an ice cream cone at legendary glacier Berthillon.

From there you can cross the Pont Saint-Louis bridge to get to the Ile de la Cite. This island is home to the world-famous Notre Dame cathedral.

Notre Dame, Paris

It’s also the site of the Sainte-Chapelle, a 13th-century Gothic chapel with awe-inspiring stained-glass windows. It’s worth a special trip to see the stunning interior. You can book a ticket for the Sainte-Chapelle here .

When the sun starts to set, you can take a river cruise on the Seine to get a feel for the city. It’s a scenic way to get an overview of what Paris has to offer visitors. You can book tickets here .

Day 7: Paris – Champs-Elysees and Iconic Landmarks

Start the seventh day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary in the Jardin des Tuileries gardens. They’re beautiful for walking and people-watching. You can admire the Louvre from the grounds as well.

Walk up to and through the Place de la Concorde, which has a large Egyptian obelisk in the center. Once you’ve soaked up the scene, walk northwest up the legendary Avenue des Champs-Elysees.

As you head towards the Arc de Triomphe, you’ll pass landmarks like the Petit Palais and Grand Palais as well as gardens and shops.

When you get to the arch, you can go up to the top to take in the views, or go down to the Seine to get to the Eiffel Tower. Again, you can admire this famous structure from the ground or head to the top to see the panoramas. You can book a ticket here .

Eiffel Tower in Paris

After seeing the tower, walk down into the Champ de Mars park and over to Rue Cler. There are lots of classic restaurants and cafes here where you can eat lunch.

After eating, you can make your way to Hotel des Invalides to admire its ornate dome. You can go inside to see the army museum (or head over to the adjacent Rodin Museum if you like art). You can book a ticket here .

The Thinker Sculpture in Paris

From the museum you can walk or take the metro to the 6th arrondissement to explore your choice of places like the Luxembourg Gardens, the streets of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, or the 17th-century Eglise Saint-Sulpice church.

When evening comes, beat a path to Rue Mouffetard. This street is famous for its crepe stands and restaurants. It’s a fun place to eat in Paris.

There are plenty of bars around here, too. If you want to get a taste of the Paris nightlife scene, it’s a great area to do it.

Day 8: Paris – 1st Arrondissement and Montmartre

Begin your day in the 1st arrondissement today. From the beautiful buildings lining Place Vendome to the gardens and grounds of the Palais-Royal, it’s hard to go wrong here.

Palais Royal in Paris, France

There are famous cafes like Angelina on Rue de Rivoli, and great shopping on Rue Saint-Honore. I came here once with a personal shopper and it was amazing.

There’s no shortage of spots to get something to eat around here, either, so it’s an ideal place to have lunch before the next stop on your itinerary.

From the 1st, you can pop up to see the stunning Palais Garnier opera house, or hop on the metro and head to Montmartre (or do both if you have time).

Sacre Coeur in Paris, France

Montmartre is one of the most picturesque quarters of Paris, and there’s a lot to see here. From the Sacre-Coeur basilica on the hill to the pretty restaurants and streets, it’s a photographer’s dream.

Make sure to explore the side streets while you’re here as well. There are loads of small surprises to discover.

When the sun goes down, you can settle in at one of the many lively restaurants in Montmartre. There are fun bars in the area if you’re looking for after-dinner entertainment, too.

Paris Restaurant

If you’re interested in seeing a cabaret show, the famous Moulin Rouge is here. I went once and I really enjoyed the performance. You can book tickets here .

Day 9: Paris – Museums or Day Trip

On the ninth day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary, I recommend either seeing some of the famous museums or taking a day trip from Paris.

Most people are interested in seeing either the Louvre or the Musee d’Orsay while visiting, so you can take your pick or see both (they’re both big, so make sure to pace yourself). You can book Louvre tickets here , and Musee D’Orsay tickets here .

Sculpture gallery at the Louvre in Paris

Paris has plenty of other museums, too, so you can visit another one or two if you want to. Some of my favorites are the Centre Pompidou, the Musee Jacquemart-Andre, the Musee Marmottan Monet, and the Musee Nissim de Camondo.

There are always plenty of exhibitions on, too, so you can check out what’s showing when you’re in town before you travel.

If one museum is enough for you, there’s no shortage of great parks to discover in Paris. My top picks are Parc Monceau in the 8th arrondissement and Parc des Buttes-Chaumont in the 19th. They’re both home to beautiful grounds and gardens.

If you decide to take a day trip, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Options include royal palaces like Versailles and Fontainebleau, wine regions like Champagne and Burgundy , chateau-littered lands like the Loire Valley, and historic cathedrals like Chartres.

If you enjoy art, you can even take a day trip from Paris to Giverny to see Monet’s gardens. They’re as lush in real life as they are in his paintings.

I’ve done all these day trips and more, and I recommend them from personal experience. You can go independently by train or car, or take a guided tour. You can get ideas and book a tour here .

Art galleries in Giverny, France

Day 10: Rome – Famous Lunch and Big Sights

Start the tenth day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary with a flight to the Italian capital. You’ll arrive mid-morning, and once you’ve checked into your hotel in Rome you can start exploring.

But first, lunch. There’s no better place for it than Antico Forno Roscioli. This famous deli in Rome is the perfect place to sample classic Roman pizza.

In the afternoon, you can walk around to see the historic Piazza Navona, the famous Caravaggio paintings in San Luigi dei Francesi church, and the Pantheon.

When evening comes, you can watch the sunset at a rooftop bar in Rome. You can enjoy cocktails and aperitivo before heading to dinner.

Rome View

Day 11: Rome – Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Food Tour

Start the eleventh day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary at the Colosseum. You can save time by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets to avoid the crowds.

After you’ve taken in the ancient amphitheater, it’s a short walk to the Roman Forum. As with the Colosseum, you can pre-book your tickets to save time. Once inside, you can see the ruins and discover what life in Ancient Rome was like.

In the afternoon you can take a food tour with a local guide . They’ll take you around to sample some of the best food in the city (and show you the sights as you go).

Rome outdoor restaurant tables

After the tour you can spend time walking around, shopping, sightseeing , eating gelato, or taking a rest at your hotel. When evening comes, there are all kinds of restaurants to choose from in Rome.

Day 12: Rome – Museum and Sightseeing

I recommend starting the twelfth day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary with a tour of the Galleria Borghese. Set in the stunning Villa Borghese Pinciana, it’s one of the city’s best art museums.

It’s worth pre-booking a guided tour to fully appreciate the collection (and because tickets sell out in advance). You’ll see the main rooms of the museum and learn about everything from the important Bernini sculptures to the Caravaggio paintings.

Galleria Borghese

From there you can walk over to the Spanish Steps. This eye-catching Rococo staircase was built in the 18th century. It ascends from the Piazza di Spagna to the church of Trinita’ de’ Monti, and it’s stunning to see.

From the steps you can shop your way down the luxurious Via dei Condotti on your way to the Trevi Fountain.

Nicola Salvi’s 18th-century masterpiece is one of the most impressive fountains in the world. It takes up the whole side of a building, and the sculptures are beautiful.

Trevi Fountain

Afterwards, you can walk around, shop, do some more sightseeing at places like the Piazza del Popolo and Altare della Patria, or have a drink at an open-air cafe before heading to dinner in the city center.

Day 13: Rome – Vatican City

Start the last full day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary with a trip to Vatican City. You can pre-book skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican Museums and head inside to see the amazing art collection.

From the ancient Roman sculptures to the Renaissance masterpieces and the Sistine Chapel, the museums are truly impressive. With artworks by everyone from Michelangelo to Raphael, it’s hard not to be awed here.

Vatican Museums

From the museums it’s a short walk to St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. This is the most important church in the Catholic world, and it’s beautiful both inside and out.

Highlights include Michelangelo’s Pieta, which is often considered the most famous work of art in St Peter’s.

After visiting, you can walk down Via della Conciliazione to the River Tiber, admiring the hulking form of the Castel Sant’Angelo as you go.

When evening comes, you can enjoy a final dinner in Rome. Whether you choose an acclaimed restaurant or a casual cafe, it’s hard to go wrong here.

Rome Cocktail

Day 14: Rome – Departure

On the final day of your London, Paris, and Rome itinerary, I recommend spending the morning (or afternoon, depending on your departure time) doing any last-minute shopping you didn’t have time to do or filling in any gaps in your sightseeing agenda.

You’ll probably have heard about some additional places while you’re in the city, so this is a good opportunity to tick them off your list.

Whether it’s a local market, a museum, or a famous gelato shop, there’s plenty to keep you busy before you depart Italy.

Roman Forum

I hope you’ve enjoyed my London, Paris, and Rome itinerary. These three capitals are world-class cities, and there’s a lot to discover in each one. I’ve spent years exploring them, and I still don’t feel like I’ve seen everything. Happy travels!

Welcome to JetSetting Fools, here you will find our best travel tips for destinations worldwide. Some of the links on this site are Affiliate Links and if you use them to make a purchase, we may earn a commission. For more information, read our Disclosure Policy .

When my mom and sister revealed their zealous plans for their 15-day London, Paris, Rome Itinerary, I was curious how they planned their European trip (and, to be honest, I was skeptical that they would be able to pull it off). Creating a 15 Days in Europe Itinerary to these top three cities is no easy feat. 

Although we have visited all three destinations over multiple trips, we have never been to all three in a short two weeks. Intrigued by their ambitiously planned London, Paris, Rome tour, I wanted to know exactly how they devised their route and the details of their day-by-day itinerary. 

Why Plan a London, Paris Rome Trip? 

A London, Paris, Rome vacation is a bucket list trip. These cities rank as top worldwide destinations – alongside places like New York City , San Francisco and Bangkok . The difference is that London, Paris and Rome are relatively close together, which allows travelers to see all three in a short amount of time…but only with a solid trip plan. 

Unlike me, who wants to travel to eternity, my family approached their trip as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit these cities. It would be Tracy’s (my sister) first trip to Europe and Dianne’s (my mom) second trip (although, it would be her first time to London and Rome). They packed their 15-Day London, Paris, Rome Itinerary to the brim…and then heaped on a bit more for good measure.

For the first-time traveler to Europe or for the traveler who only anticipates ever going once, it’s an ideal itinerary that succinctly hits all the major sights and then some.

Breaking from our typical style of travel tips, we are presenting a Q&A regarding their diligent planning and execution of their trip abroad. Because they had detailed documentation, they are sharing their pre-trip preparation, experiences abroad, post-trip thoughts and a detailed account of their 15-Day London, Paris, Rome Itinerary Day-by-Day (including links!).

Fellow travelers planning self guided tours of London, Paris, Rome can use the tips from their experience to help plan their own perfect European trip. We also recommend using Travel Planning Printables to help you stay organized and reading our guide to plan your European Vacation !

Are There London, Paris, Rome Tours?

Absolutely! While it is possible to plan your own 2-Week London, Paris, Rome vacation (and my family is proof!), it does take an enormous amount of time and effort to create a seamless trip plan. 

Travelers can opt to tour London, Paris, Rome with a professional sightseeing tour group. The London, Paris, Italy vacation packages are planned by professionals – so all you need to do is show up and enjoy the sights! 

Young travelers – aged 18-35 – can start by searching Contiki . The company specializes in travel for young adults and offers fun and affordable London, Paris, Rome tour packages.

If you do decide to plan your Rome, Paris, London trip on your own, read on for detailed trip planning tips! 

London, Paris, Rome Itinerary: Pre-Trip Preparation

Pre-trip preparation is key to planning a trip to London, Paris and Italy – and they shared some of the steps they took to ensure their trip went off without a hitch.

How did you decide where to go and how much time to spend in each place?

Our European vacation was nearly three years in the making. A year and a half prior to the trip, we started checking out travel books from the library. Tracy read them cover-to-cover. Eight months out, we began researching flights. Five months prior to departure, we were booking accommodations.

We discussed our itinerary at length. We were constrained by Tracy’s limited time off work, but were determined to fit as much as we possibly could into our trip. We focused on the must-see cities and their best-known sights.

We originally created a London, Paris Italy Itinerary that included Florence and Venice. However, in the planning stages, we felt the time we would have to spend actually traveling between the cities was too much. We settled on Europe’s Big Three: London, Paris and Rome – with five nights in each city.

What luggage did you carry? Were you happy with what you packed?

We debated whether a backpack or suitcase would be better to tour London, Paris, Rome. Although I have traveled through Europe with a backpack before, we decided to use roller suitcases for this trip. We each had one large checked roller bag and a carry-on backpack. Our carry-on backpacks served as a daypack as we explored the cities.

We knew our 15-Day London, Paris, Rome Itinerary was ambitious and wanted to make sure we were as prepared as possible, so we ended up bringing things that we didn’t use. In our packing list , we packed too many shirts and warmer clothes (as we traveled in the autumn) and a lot of just-in-case medications. However, we are still glad we had them with us and wouldn’t have left anything behind.

Did you buy or use any specific travel gadgets or guides?

We purchased adapters and a converter. The adapters were essential, but the converter did not work properly and it turned out we didn’t really need one.

We always used our money belts and bra stashes and were glad we purchased them for our trip. Since we are not seasoned travelers, it made us feel more safe to have our money and important documents with us at all times and concealed beneath our clothing.

The guide book we used was Rick Steves’ Best of Europe . We tore out and carried only the information we needed for the cities we were visiting.

Of the entire trip, what were you most looking forward to?

We were really intent on checking off all the sights on our list. It might end up being my (Dianne’s) last trip and Tracy’s only trip to Europe. We didn’t want to miss a single sight that appealed to us.

London, Paris, Rome: Experiences By City

Travelers who plan a 2-Week London, Paris, Rome Itinerary will want to consider what they want to experience in each city. 

What London sights did you see?

The British Museum, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London, The Monument, Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace, Thames River Cruise, Greenwich (Royal Observatory and Maritime Museum), Big Ben, Westminster Bridge, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament (and viewed sessions), 10 Downing Street, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Covent Garden, Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park (including the Princess Diana Memorial), Wellington Arch, Westminster Cathedral and the National Library.

We did not see the Natural History Museum or walk Abbey Road. We could not Visit The Sky Garden because, while it is free to enter, prior reservations are required and we hadn’t made them.

What was the food like in London?

We ate a variety of food in London , from high tea to street food. We most enjoyed the food in Chinatown. Our high tea experience (which included sandwiches, sweets and a prosecco finish) was one of our most memorable dining experiences.

Where did you stay in London?

We stayed at the European Hotel for its close proximity to King’s Cross Station (which provided access to the entire city and even the Chunnel to Paris). The hotel offered a complimentary traditional English breakfast that included a lot of protein, which was a nice way to start the day. The rooms were much smaller than we had anticipated…and the bathroom was shockingly small, but sufficient. Also, the electricity and wifi were sometimes unreliable.

Any other recommendations for London?

The best way to see a lot of the city in an economical way is to purchase a weekly National Train paper pass. It allows visitors to use 2-for-1 vouchers for all the major sights – as well as transportation on the Tube and buses.

What were your highlights of London?

The Tower of London (with the Beefeater’s Tour), Kensington Palace and high tea.

What was the food like in Paris?

We ate quick food on-the-go a lot in Paris. Our favorite place to grab breakfast and lunch was at Paul, a bakery which has multiple locations. We had street crepes a few times and especially liked the Nutella crepes at Montmartre.

The Saint-Martin Canal neighborhood offered a wide variety of quaint cafes and restaurants. Our two favorite meals in the area were a savory buckwheat crepe at Lulu’s Creperies and a wild boar and chestnut stew at La Patache.

Where did you stay in Paris?

We stayed in a charming flat in an old building on the Saint-Martin Canal, which we found through Airbnb . It was nice to have the extra space and a washer/dryer (as we needed to do laundry by then!). It was well-situated in a residential neighborhood, but close to Gare de l’Est where we could access the Metro.

Any other recommendations for Paris?

We highly recommend the Paris Museum Pass (not to be confused with the Paris Pass). It offers entry into all the major sights in and around Paris at a reasonable cost. With the pass, we could enter certain sights to see just the highlights and not feel like we had to stay to get our money’s worth.

The best value for transportation around Paris is the weekly (calendar week only Monday through Sunday) Navigo Pass, which was good for the Metro, buses and trains (even the train to Versailles and the airport!).

What were your highlights of Paris?

Sainte Chappelle, Conciergerie, Musee Rodin, and the Tower of Notre Dame.

Rome, Italy

St. Peter's Basilica on St. Peter's Square in Vatican City, Rome, Italy

What sights did you see in Rome?

Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese Gardens, Villa Medici, Circus Maximus, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, Victor Emmanuel and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, St. Peter’s Basilica and Square, Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. John Lateran, Scala Sancta (Holy Stairs), Capitoline Museum, Bocca della Verita, Trastevere neighborhood, Piazza Santa Maria, Basilica di Santa Maria, Tiber Island, the Old Jewish neighborhood, Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona.

We did not make it to Ostia Antica nor Ostia di Lido (the beach on the Mediterranean).

What was the food like in Rome?

Hello Gelato! We ate gelato every day, because when in Rome… We also ate a lot of pizza, both at sidewalk cafes and where they scissor-cut the slices and sell them by weight.

Our best meal was at a little family-run restaurant in the Trastevere neighborhood. The chef used family recipes that had been handed-down through several generations.

Where did you stay in Rome?

We stayed in a small B&B in a very safe neighborhood, Salario, on the north side of the city. It was recently renovated and spacious. However, due to our delayed flight and unclear directions to the B&B, our late arrival (after midnight) resulted in a deplorable welcome from the host. Unfortunately, encounters like that are carried throughout the rest of the stay and sadly gave us a negative impression of Romans in general.

Any other recommendations for Rome?

What we would NOT recommend is the OMNIA Pass. We thought it would speed up our sightseeing by eliminating standing in long lines, but it never worked out that way. It was expensive ($109), included things we didn’t use and although it promised front-of-line entry, required longer waiting times than those with regular entry tickets.

Alternatively, we could have purchased the combo pass to the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill (Cost: $13.50) from the shortest ticket lines at the Palatine Hill entrance on Via di San Gregorio and then we could skip the ticket line at the Colosseum.

In addition, we could have bought our ticket to the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel, online (Cost: $22) and skipped the lines there, too. (The OMNIA Pass could possibly be to an advantage in the high season, though).

What were your highlights of Rome?

St. Peter’s Basilica and the many ruins throughout the city, although the most impressive were those at the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. We really enjoyed the time we spent walking through the Rome neighborhoods and piazzas.

European Trip Thoughts

Before planning your London, Paris, Rome tour, these are a few things you might want to consider. 

How much did you spend on your European Trip? Did you have a budget? Did you stick to it?

The total cost of our trip was $2550 each, just $50 more than we had budgeted. That amount includes everything we spent during our vacation – the flight and all transportation abroad, accommodations, food, drink, tours, passes, entertainment, souvenirs…everything!

We researched and carefully determined how to do our trip on a budget without missing any of the sights we wanted to see. For hardcore sightseers, like us, we found the city passes to the sights and public transportation passes to be quite beneficial financially.

We also were able to find entertainment deals on major websites (like Viator  and Get Your Guide ). We weren’t on a mission to spend as little as possible, but we were budget conscious and feel that the price we paid was well-worth the trip.

It should be noted that we found majorly discounted airline tickets from Toronto rather than from our home city in the United States. Therefore, we tacked on a mini-vacation to Canada on each end of our European trip, which is also included in the total cost of the trip (which, all-inclusive, was still less than if we had paid the more expensive airfare from our home city).

What about your European Trip exceeded your expectations?

We were pleasantly surprised that everything went pretty much according to plan, but perhaps that is because we were so diligent in our planning. The specific sights that exceeded our expectations (although, not necessarily top-of-the-list things to do) are:

London – The British Library, the National Gallery, House of Commons session, afternoon tea

Paris – Sainte Chapelle, Musee Rodin, Conciergerie

Rome – Palatine Hill, Capitoline Museum

What were your biggest disappointments on your European Trip?

London – Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. We spent too much time there and even though we arrived an hour and half before the event, we were unable to get close enough to really see. While standing in the sea of people, we felt like prime targets for pickpockets!

Paris – The interior of Versailles Chateau. It was over-crowded with a lot of people elbowing their way through. The rooms everyone was pushing to see were pretty, but not all that impressive to us for the hassle involved in seeing them. However, the Mesdames section, the gardens and the Trianons were worth seeing.

Rome – The Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. After spending several hours in the Vatican Museum, we were underwhelmed by the time we got to the Sistine Chapel. The small area was packed and a booming voice coming from speakers reminded guests that pictures were not allowed (although many blatantly disregarded the message and took photos anyway, which we thought was quite rude). We were expecting to be wowed, but instead felt like cattle being corralled. It wasn’t the experience we were anticipating.

What did you find difficult about traveling in Europe?

The language barrier in Paris and Rome made communication in those cities trying, especially as we were there for such a short time and had a full itinerary planned.

Rome was also an extremely difficult city to get around in using public transportation. The buses were always crowded and the Metro stations were few and far between. It would have been better if we had stayed closer to the sights or near a Metro station.

What was easier than you thought it would be?

The lines to get into the sights were not as long as we had anticipated. Of course, it helped that we were traveling in the shoulder season (mid-October).

What would you have done differently on your Trip To Europe?

We would have planned our travel between cities for early morning as it would have made getting acquainted with the new city much easier. More specifically, we would not again plan to arrive to a city after dark.

Also, it would have been extremely beneficial to have been able to use our mobile phones. We should have purchased an international data plan or purchased a WiFi pocket device for our time abroad so that we could have used them when we really needed to.

Additionally, we wish we had planned more time to simply walk the neighborhoods, relax in the parks and piazzas and enjoy people-watching from the cafes.

Top Tips For Your London, Paris, Rome Trip

Planning a 15 Day Europe Itinerary to London, Paris and Rome is not an easy task. Although we have outlined a detailed trip plan, we have a few more tips that will help make planning your trip to Europe just a little bit easier. 

City Sightseeing Passes

City sightseeing passes can offer substantial savings for travelers who want to visit the top ticketed attractions. London, Paris and Rome all offer a variety of sightseeing pass options (and some are better than others).

London Sightseeing Passes

The National Rail 2-for-1 vouchers are a fabulous way to see London sights on a budget …unless you are traveling solo (or with an odd number of people) and not using public transportation. The London Pass is another city pass that might save you money.

In lieu of using public transportation, consider getting around London using Big Bus Tours , which makes stops at all the top London attractions. 

Paris Museum Pass

We highly recommend buying the Paris Museum Pass while sightseeing in Paris , as we think it is well worth the money and added bonus of skipping the line. 

Alternatively, look at the Paris Pass , which includes the Paris Hop-On Hop-Off Bus and free public transportation, and might provide savings for your Paris trip . 

Rome Sightseeing Tips

We have yet to find a Rome sightseeing pass that we can recommend, as they don’t seem to offer the convenience and savings promised. Instead of spending money on a pass like OMNIA , organize your Rome sightseeing on your own.

Use the money you saved from buying a city pass and join a guided tour of the sights that are of most interest to you, like St. Peter’s Basilica , the  Vatican Museum , or the Colosseum . To get around the city, use the Rome Big Bus , public transportation or walk. 

As stated before, save time and money by purchasing the combo pass to the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill (Cost: $13.50) from the shortest ticket lines at the Palatine Hill entrance on Via di San Gregorio and then use your combo ticket to skip the ticket line at the Colosseum. Additionally, buy your ticket to the Vatican Museums , including the Sistine Chapel, online and skip the lines there, too.

Where To Stay in Europe

Choosing the type of accommodations and where to stay for a 2-week, multicity European trip can feel overwhelming. With 5 days in each city, travelers can opt to stay in a hotel, but a short-term apartment might be a better option. 

The main factors to consider when making your decision are location, cost, ease of check in, cleanliness and comfort. For any short stay in a city, location is key. It is optimal to be either in the city center or close to a public transit line. 

Airbnb in Europe

In general, we have found that staying in apartments is often less expensive than hotel rooms – but that is not always true with short stays where fees can add up in a hurry. However, it may be worth it for the added benefit of a kitchen and, usually, more space. Airbnb is our go-to site for finding the best Europe holiday apartments.

Europe Hotels

That said, we would not discount staying in hotels. At most hotels in Europe, the front desk staff speaks English and – with long days of sightseeing – a kitchen may not be necessary. When looking for hotels in London , Paris and Rome , we always start our search on Booking.com . Budget travelers can search for Hostels in London , Paris and Rome .

Pro Tip: Before you get started, read our top tips for Booking the Best Hotels .

Getting To Europe

All three cities – London, Paris, Rome – are easily accessible via plane, train, bus or car. 

Our preferred method of getting anywhere is by flying (we are JetSetting Fools, after all!) and when we do need to purchase plane tickets, we start our search for the best deals on airline tickets on Skyscanner .

Pro Tip: Read all our Tips for Cheaper Airfare .

Getting Around Europe

To get from city to city when flights are not possible, we usually rely on public transportation and take trains or buses. In Europe, we use Rail Europe to find train tickets and our preferred bus company is FlixBus – as it is economical, clean and comfortable (sometimes with on-board wifi, seat-back entertainment, refreshments and a toilet).

Renting a Car in Europe

For this Rome, Paris, London Itinerary, it is not necessary to rent a car. In fact, when bouncing between any big cities in Europe, it is best to use public transit. However, for travelers interested in seeing sights outside the city center,  renting a car can often save time and money (especially when traveling with more than two people).

Top Tip: We share tips for getting the Best Car Rental here . 

Before You Go To Europe: What You Will Need

We have a few final tips on what you will need for your London, Paris and Rome trip! You can find our Packing Hacks and other advice on our dedicated Travel Packing blog page. 

Comfortable Walking Shoes

Anyone planning a 2-Week Trip to London, Paris and Rome will need a good pair of walking shoes to most comfortably see the sights. The best travel shoes are lightweight and comfortable. I like wearing versatile sneakers , while Kris prefers Merrell trail shoes . 

Travel Camera

We’re certain you’ll be snapping tons of photos during your trip. Rather than relying on your mobile phone to capture the sights, upgrade to an actual travel camera for higher quality photos. We travel with a Canon Rebel (which takes amazing photos and is a great budget camera for beginners!) – and use an everyday 18-135mm lens .  

Maps and Guidebooks

It’s easy to get turned around in any foreign city! Make sure to have a good city map for London , Paris and Rome . Additionally, some travelers (like my mom and sister) like to use a trusted guidebook – like Rick Steves’ Europe .

European Trip Insurance

Travel insurance may cover lost luggage and trip delays, as well as illness or injured abroad . If you haven’t already obtained travel insurance for your trip to Europe, consider traveling protected with World Nomads .

Escape Around The World

Itinerary: London, Paris, and Rome

Table of Contents

Planning the best Europe itinerary can bring about a mixture of emotions. Many people feel both excited…..and confused! With so many unique cities, climates, activities, and cuisines to discover, it is difficult to know where to even start!

If it is your first time in Europe, treat it like a Sampler Platter at Applebee’s , and try a combination of destinations. With the use of high speed railways and short plane rides, most all European destinations become within easy reach of each other.

Each destination has it’s own vibe. Especially if you haven’t been to Europe before, it’s hard to estimate which destination you would like the best.

When in doubt, try the classic Western European combination of London + Paris + Rome!

I have put together a carefully curated two week itinerary covering London, Paris, and Rome… all in one trip! In fact, this Paris, London, Rome vacation even includes some bonus destinations that you can easily squeeze in during this trip if your energy and budget allows for it.

paris london italy trip

Day One: Depart To London

paris london italy trip

Now, of course the time spent flying will be based on where you’re leaving from. Maybe you live in Seattle , and you’re looking at 2 separate flights and a layover. Perhaps you live in Belgium , just a short train ride away. Unless you end up arriving in the morning/afternoon, this day will be dedicated to possible jetlag-inducing travel. Be sure that you have packed properly  beforehand, and it helps to plan your airport attire in advance (especially for long international flights.)

paris london italy trip

Flying into London, you are likely to arrive at Heathrow (LHR) , one of the busiest airports in the world. Additionally, there are alternative airports such as Gatwick (LGW) , City (LCY) , and Southend (SEN.)

If arriving by train from a nearby country in Europe, consider Eurostar.

Low on funds? Consider arriving by bus through a company like Ouibus.

Day Two: London

paris london italy trip

It’s time to explore! A great strategy for exploring a new city is a Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tour.  If this is your first time in London , you might be itching to check out the big tourist attractions (and get them out of the way.)

Today, take the tour and visit these locations:

  • Tower Of London
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Tower Bridge
  • Harrods and Harvey Nicholls

Day Three: London

paris london italy trip

As with yesterday, I would encourage you to continue with the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus tour , because while it is impossible to see everything in two days, you will at least be able to get the most famous attractions checked off of your list.

paris london italy trip

Try these locations out today:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Kensington Palace
  • View From The Shard
  • St. Paul’s Cathedral
  • Shakespeare Globe Theater
  • The British Museum

If you want to see London differently, check out the Emirates Air Line . Not to be confused with a plane flight, this air cable takes passengers across the Thames River , revealing stunning and unobstructed views.

Day Four: You Decide!

paris london italy trip

Okay…here’s the part of the itinerary where you get to make a choice based on your style. If you are like me, it will be difficult to choose between the two.

Your choices are….

Stonehenge or Harry Potter!

paris london italy trip

Stonehenge is an ancient man-made (………or, alien-made ) rock formation with mysterious origins to say the least. Located about two hours away from London by bus, this excursion will take at least a total of six hours when you factor in traffic and crowds.

Not a huge history buff? Consider a Harry Potter Tour! There are many times to choose from, such as:

  • Warner Bros Studio Tour   (approx. 7 hrs.)
  • Harry Potter Walking Tour (approx 2.5 hrs.)
  • Interactive Harry Potter Tour (approx. 2 hrs.)

Day Five: Journey To Paris

paris london italy trip

Today is the day you travel down to the City Of Lights! I would highly suggest timing your transportation so that you arrive in the morning, such as a 6am flight.

paris london italy trip

Speaking of flights, your air travel time will probably be around 1.5 hours . The most popular Paris airport is Charles de Gaulle (CDG), but you could also try Orly (ORY) or Beauvais-Tille (BVA.)

A train ride will take about 2.5 hours from London, and a bus ride will take 8 to 10 hours . If you are considering a bus trip, try to do an overnight route so you aren’t wasting a whole day.

Hopefully you still have several hours of daylight left to do some exploring. As previously suggested, Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tours are awesome for seeing all the big-name attractions using one convenient strategy.

paris london italy trip

Be sure to check out these must-see attractions today:

  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Champs- Élysées
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Grand Palais
  • Louvre Museum
  • Musée du Quai Branly
  • Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre
  • Parc des Buttes Chaumont (great place for a picnic!)

The goal for today is to take lots of pictures in as many places as possible and take note of a few places you may want to check out more in depth in the days to come. For example, it will take many days to properly get through the Louvre at a leisurely pace, so maybe today try to just check out the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo .

Day Six: Explore Paris

One of my favorite things about Paris is walking around without a strict plan. To venture among the beautiful architecture and cobblestone streets is truly romantic. So get “lost in Paris” but remember to download street maps on your phone and keep your wits about you at all times 🙂

paris london italy trip

There are many cool neighborhoods to explore. The Latin Quarter is a great place to explore, with such gems as:

  • The Rue St-Andre-des-Arts area
  • Luxembourg Gardens
  • Arenes de Lutece
  • Musée Cluny
  • Fountaine Saint-Michele

You can’t leave Paris without a dinner cruise on The Seine . There are many to choose from, and although it can be a little touristy, it’s a relaxing activity to indulge in after a long day of exploring.

Day Seven: You Decide!

paris london italy trip

It’s that part of the trip again! Paris is an amazing city, but there are also many places outside of France’s most famous city worth exploring.

This time you get three choices…

Disneyland Paris OR Versailles Palace ORRR a Wine Tasting Trip!

paris london italy trip

For the kid at heart , choose Disneyland Paris! Every Disney property is a little different, and this one is no exception. Last time I went, the entrance fee was a tiny bit more than the American Disneyland, and the overall vibe is a little on the mellow side. (6+ hours, but it just depends on long you want to stay.)

The Versailles Palace is the beautiful historical home of French royalty, with past residents such as Queen Marie Antoinette and and Louis XIV. Some notable places to visit include The Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, and the Versailles gardens. (6 hours.)

The wine in France is world-renowned for a good reason. By now, you may have already tasted wine during one of your meals in Paris… but why not go to the source? Spend the day in the countryside, touring vineyards and sipping wine with your loved one/s. (10.5 hours.)

Day Eight: Explore Paris

paris london italy trip

It’s your last full day in Paris! Today, you can do a little bit more exploring through my suggestions. Or maybe you want to revisit a location you breezed past earlier and dig deeper?

paris london italy trip

The fairly new Fondation Louis Vuitton is a very unique art museum and center of culture. It will certainly stand out in stark comparison to much of the historical buildings you will have seen on your trip thus far.

Are you into creepy experiences? If skulls don’t make you flinch, check out the Paris Catacombs. Underground lies the remains of six million Parisians, with tour guides narrating the history and circumstances behind this bizarre location.

Get some last minute shopping in at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann. The retail and shopping options fit a variety of budgets. If you want some city-specific souvenirs, there are several kiosks set up right outside as well.

Why not end your trip to Paris with a spectacular Moulin Rogue experience? Possibly the most famous cabaret show in the world, dozens of performers put on an entertaining show representing classic French culture.

Day Nine: Fly To Rome

paris london italy trip

Two destinations down, one more to go! Today it’s time to venture over to the last leg of the trip, Rome, Italy! An ancient city with tons of areas to explore, a few days won’t cover EVERYthing. But this itinerary will give you a great basic overview, and perhaps leave you curious to come back and explore even deeper.

paris london italy trip

The main airport for Rome is Leonardo da Vinci (FCO) located in Fiumicino. An alternative airport is Ciampino (CIA) which caters to budget airlines. Your flight from Paris will only take around 2 hours .

A high speed train ride from Paris to Rome will take around 11 hours, and an overnight train will take around 20 hours.

A bus ride from Paris to Rome , while the cheapest option, will take almost a full day at around 22 hours.

I will continue this itinerary as though you took a short plane ride and arrived in Rome in the morning/early afternoon.

Upon arrival, you already know what I’m about to suggest… A Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tour Of Rome! It’s easy, it’s convenient, it works.

paris london italy trip

Here are some places included on this tour that you’ll want to check out:

  • Spanish Steps
  • Trevi Fountain
  • Roman Forum
  • Circus Maximus
  • Piazza Venezia
  • Sistine Chapel
  • Palazzo Barberini

This bus tour will give you a great overview of your options in Rome, and allow you to see which attractions and areas you may want to explore more in depth, at least in the super-touristy areas.

Day Ten: Explore Rome

paris london italy trip

There are two tours today that I would suggest in order for you to experience the food and amazing history of Rome.

Start off your day with an in-depth tour of the Colosseum. There are several different types of tours to go on, so it depends on your budget, time, and overall interest in this attraction. The tours typically range from 2 hours to all day.

After you’ve learned some history, it’s time to get your hands messy and create your own pasta! Pasta is arguably Italy’s most popular dish, as well as an international phenomenon. There are many food tours to choose from which range from one to five hours, covering all types of Italian cuisine.

Day Eleven: You Decide!

paris london italy trip

It’s time for one more day trip! Now, you could certainly modify this whole trip to be full of a whole bunch of excursions. But I find that this leads to a lot of fatigue and stress. Two weeks of non-stop travel is a lot more involved than it seems on paper (or computer screen.) But, it’s completely up to you of course.

My top choices for you today are….

Trip To Florence OR Trip To The Tuscany Countryside ORRRR Trip To The Amalfi Coast!

paris london italy trip

Yes, you get three choices again this time, which may make it hard to narrow down. But I wanted you to see how many great options are just a reasonable train or bus ride away.

  • Florence, Italy is a world famous, beautiful city filled with amazing architecture and art that you’re likely to have learned about is history class. A day trip exploring the museums with lunch included is a great way to explore Florence for the first time.
  • The Tuscany region , which includes Florence and Pisa, is a mixture of scenic wine country and high art. A full day guided tour with transportation is included in this excursion, and is a great option if you opted not to do the suggested wine tour in the French portion of the trip.
  • Looking to visit the beautiful Italian coastline? A day trip to the Amalfi Coast is a wonderful option. This particular day trip includes a trip to Pompeii in the shadow of the famed Mount Vesuvius.

Day Twelve: Explore Rome

paris london italy trip

I think another food tour is more than necessary. This will allow you to spend some time visiting the city streets and discover places you may want to come back to later for seconds. There are so many hidden gems to explore in Rome.

Explore the historical side of Rome with an electric bike tour of Roman history. This tour covers The Appian Way, an ancient road constructed in 312 B.C. This tour is technically at the intermediate difficulty level, so bike novices may struggle. Just like in France, you also have the opportunity to go underground (without the millions of skulls.)

Day Thirteen: Explore Rome

paris london italy trip

Today is a leisurely day to allow yourself to (safely) get lost in this world class city a little bit and reflect on your (hopefully) amazing European trip. I will list a couple of options that you may want to consider if you’d like to do some more structured exploring. Try not to overwhelm yourself today so you can make sure you’re packed for the journey home and have your transportation to the airport planned out for tomorrow.

  • Angels and Demons Tour
  • Video Game Museum
  • Escape Rooms
  • Spa Day To Unwind
Make sure your baggage doesn’t exceed the baggage weight restrictions on your flight(s) home with your new souvenirs!

Day Fourteen: Fly Home

paris london italy trip

Welp, it’s time to go back to reality. After a week of life-changing experiences and some of the best food in the world, it’s time to take the long journey home.

If you live in Europe, you may consider taking the train or bus. Because of the location of Rome in proximity to other cities outside of Italy, this option might take at least half a day.

A non-stop flight from Rome to another European, North African, or West Asian country will take 5 hours or less, generally.

Flying to further international destinations can take a whole day and involve multiple legs and layovers, depending on your itinerary. A non-stop flight to New York City will take 10 hours and Los Angeles will take 13 hours.

I hope that this guide helps you to get a visual for what your trip could be. When you travel to Paris, London, Rome, it doesn’t have to be all that complicated! Did you see anything that you want to add to your bucket list? Have you ever been to any of these locations? I would love to know in the comments below! 🙂

I did that exact trip for my senior trip- London, Paris, and Rome! But if you are going to go to the Amalifi coast from Rome, you need to stay the night in one of the coastal towns! It will take about 4 hours to get there via train and bus/taxi, so you definitely need to stay overnight. Plus, it is absolutely gorgeous. A couple of hours on a day trip isn’t enough! Heck, I lived in Sorrento for a month and it wasn’t enough 🙂

I’m doing this trip in May and I’m SOOO EXCITED!

Michelle Felux

What a wonderful itinerary! I studied abroad in Rome and have visited Paris, but have not been to London yet. My favorite thing to do in Rome was take cooking classes through Cooking Classes in Rome. The chef there became one of my friends there, but he has the most amazing teacher – he takes you to Campo di Fiori to shop for your ingredients and then you are taught how to make a traditional Roman meal. Also – on Sundays in Piazza Navona there is an open air art market – SO MANY ARTISTS. You can browse pretty inexpensive acrylic paintings and roll them up and bring them home, giving your home a truly unique art piece with a story behind it.

Love your suggestions!! I’m going to subscribe to your blog to see what else you have going on. <3

Thank you so much for subscribing! I really love your suggestions as well, and I’ll refer to them on my upcoming trip to Rome in May 🙂

This sounds like an ideal itinerary to me. I would choose the Harry Potter tour over Stonehenge, though. LOL. You laid out a great and informative list of places to visit here and I only hope I can cross this off my bucket list at some point.

Thank you so much! I hope you can cross it off of your bucket list soon 🙂

One Week Itinerary: Rome, Paris, and London on a Budget

paris london italy trip

It's the ultimate first-time Europe itinerary -- jetting between London, Paris, and Rome in a single trip. These cities are packed with sites, they're easy to navigate, and they offer a rich introduction to the continent. This trip is a must-do for any traveler, and it can be accomplished affordably and in a single week, if you plan wisely.

While we don't claim that this is an exhaustive itinerary, we’ve crafted one that gives you a manageable taste of three very different cities.

A Note on Flights

To make the most of your time on the ground, book a red eye (a flight that arrives early in the morning) on the way to Europe so you can hit the ground running when you land -- assuming, of course, that you can rest on the plane. For the rest of us, there’s espresso and sunshine.

For the most efficient touring, you'll need to book an “open jaw” flight , if you can afford it (they’re often a little more expensive, though not always). This means you’ll be arriving in one city, and departing from another, so you don’t have to double-back on your itinerary. In our example below, you will be arriving in Rome and flying out of London.

A tip for booking open-jaw itineraries: Use the "multi-city" or "multiple stops" tool on flight web sites when you search for fares. You'll often find much better prices than if you booked the individual legs of your journey separately.

Notes on Where to Stay: The historic center of Rome, where almost all of the relevant sights are (the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain), is probably the most desirable area for first-time visitors, especially if you’re only staying a few days. The major sites are within a 30-minute walk, at most, and strolling is a pastime unto itself in Rome. Hotels in this area, however, tend to fill up far in advance, so if you’re booking your trip at the last minute, consider the Termini district, near the train station, for greater affordability and availability.

Hotels to consider in The Historic Center include Spanish Suite Campo de Fiori (rooms starting from $110). The Artemide (rooms starting from $250) is especially known for its excellent service.

Day 1: Arrival and the Ancient City

After you settle in at your hotel, head to the Roman Forum, and then to Palatine Hill. Rather than strolling around by yourself, consider investing in a guided tour, even if you don't think you're the tour type. There’s so much history here, but the narratives aren’t always immediately apparent. Rome Tours is highly recommended and is led by Classics scholar Daniella Hunt.

After your time atop Palatine Hill, make your way to the Colosseum. Make sure you buy tickets in advance for entry -- lines here are notoriously long. You can spend an hour, at least, wandering through the site. Grab an audio guide for extra enrichment, and make sure you make it to the second level for the views.

Watch the sunset from the Piazza del Campidoglio -- a well-known sightseeing spot that was designed by Michelangelo. For dinner, try one of the many homey restaurants on the small grid of streets behind the Colosseum, or enjoy a humble-but-hearty bowl of bucatini or one of the famous pizzas at Ponte Vittorio . From there, you can stroll along the Tiber, just adjacent.

Day 2: Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon

Start your morning with a counter cappuccino at famed Caffé Sant’Eustachio , where espresso is brewed with water from an ancient aqueduct.

Then, make your way to the newly restored Trevi Fountain and throw in a coin or two (over your shoulder, natch, to guarantee that you'll return) for good luck. Then onto the Pantheon -- a must see. Fit in some gelato and lunch (preferably in that order) while you’re at it. Gelateria Della Palma is excellent.

In the afternoon, head to the Piazza del Popolo, and end your day at the Piazza Navona -- a brilliant place to catch the sunset, if you time it right.

Day 3: The Vatican

On your last day in Rome, wake up early to enter Vatican City. Head on over to St. Peter’s Basilica, where you’ll likely have to stand in line for a security check. Entrance is free, unless you’d like to visit the top of the basilica's dome. If you’re interested in doing so, consider booking a tour, which will allow you to bypass the long lines.

After a bustling morning at Vatican City, enjoy a cafe lunch outside the Vatican museums -- Ristorante dei Musei is delicious.

After soaking up the sun a bit on the sidewalk, and maybe perking up with an espresso, wander through the Vatican Museums. Make sure to buy your tickets beforehand so you can skip the lines. You could spend all day admiring the grandeur of the Sistine Chapel -- if art is a high priority on your list, consider scheduling it earlier in your itinerary so you can come back, if you wish.

Finally, end your last night in Rome at La Pergola if you’re up for a splurge. This three-Michelin-starred restaurant does not disappoint, and the candlelit terrace and city view is almost worth the price tag alone.

Notes on Where to Stay: For easy access to Paris, a good place to stay is the centrally-located Marais neighborhood. Beyond convenience, it also represents a cultural nexus of the city, without the corporate glitz of the Champs Elysées or the touristy hype of the Eiffel Tower area (which is actually quite residential, apart from the area by the monument). Hôtel Providence Paris in the Marais is a chic choice, starting at only $170 per night.

If you’re looking for more of a budget option, steer clear of the Marais and check out the budget hotels and hostels in the Latin Quarter -- the historic student neighborhood and former haunt of literary heavyweights like Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. Be warned, however, that this area will feel touristy.

To consider when choosing a hotel: Paris is a small city, and walking across it takes astonishingly little time. The city-wide bike rental program, the Vélib, is also an excellent way to get around -- and nothing compares to the freedom of riding a bike in Paris on a warm day. With this in mind, don’t discount the possibility of finding a more affordable hotel in a less central area. The C.O.Q Hotel , for example, is a stylish new offering in the city that makes the most of its out-of-the-way neighborhood.

One last thing to consider: many restaurants and small businesses are closed in August, as that’s the universal month to vacation in the country. Plan your visit carefully if you choose to come during this time (though on the plus side, you'll find the city to be relatively peaceful).

Day 4: Arriving in Paris and Notre Dame

Catch a flight as early in the day as you can, so you’ll have a full day in Paris once you arrive and get settled. Carriers like Ryanair and EasyJet offer flights for as little as 30 euros between cities. For longer trips, train travel is recommended and enjoyable, but if you’re only here for one week, the airport (with all its hassles) is the fastest route.

Upon arrival, you should start where everyone starts -- at Notre Dame. It's worth the inevitable wait in line, and will anchor your entire Paris trip. Take time to wander back and forth over the Seine-spanning bridges, and through the alleyways of the nearby Marais. Stop for lunch at the excellent Middle Eastern takeout counter, L’As du Falafel.

Make your way to the storied (but admittedly overrated) Shakespeare and Company; play the bookstore’s rickety piano and maybe buy a postcard or two. Spend the evening at Le Centre Pompidou, Paris’s modern art museum with its inside-out design.

Finally, finish your day with dinner at Les Philosophes , which is famous for its French onion soup -- a dish many restaurants offer, but one that few master.

Day 5: The Louvre and Beyond

A Louvre visit is, of course, a must, and needs to be tackled first thing in the morning. Don’t deceive yourself that you’ll avoid the crowds, however.

In the afternoon, allow yourself to wander the nearby arcades, making sure to stop for macarons at famed patissier Pierre Hermé . L’imprimerie is a popular cafe usually busy with locals, and mains run no more than 20 euros.

Later, stroll by the Eiffel Tower -- the view from the top is iconic, but the line occasionally isn't worth it. The surrounding area is also overwhelmingly congested. A better way to enjoy the monument is to have a picnic on its lawns, or cross the bridge over to the Place du Trocadero. The view from here is particularly inspiring at night.

If you can afford it, treat yourself to a performance at the Opera Garnier in the evening. Just the building itself is a work of art, and it's free to browse the gilded lobby. Ask about same-day tickets, which can sometimes be purchased at a fraction of the price.

Day 6: Montmartre and the Musée d'Orsay

Reserve the morning for Montmartre, a neighborhood that once was its own windmill-filled village, and is known as the setting of the film Amélie . Its winding streets are a delight, full of curio shops and cafes. Arrive at the breathtaking Sacré-Coeur basilica and take in the views of the the city.

Nearby in Pigalle, the sex shops and their conspicuous advertisements aren't exactly family-friendly. That said, the neighborhood doesn’t feel dangerous, and the area has enjoyed a reputation for trendiness, rather than seediness, in recent years.

In the afternoon, visit The Musée d’Orsay, which many people describe as their favorite museum in Paris. It’s smaller, more intimate, and filled with natural light -- unlike the Louvre, which can feel dusty and dim on the inside.

If time and energy allow, walk along the Canal St. Martin and through the Belleville neighborhood in the evening. It’s a mix of up-and-coming young artists, Asian restaurants, and North African immigrants -- a picture of Paris's vibrant and dynamic future. Get a good night’s rest for your train journey to London the following morning.

Notes on Where to Stay: We recommend staying put in the area around Kings Cross/St. Pancras train station for your overnight in London. Not only will it make your commute with luggage much shorter, but it’s also a nonstop journey from there to Heathrow, Gatwick, and Luton airports.

The district is not quite as exciting or filled with sites as the West End, but it’s significantly more affordable. Kings Cross is also a short train (“tube”) ride away from major spots like Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the bevy of museums in Kensington.

Stay at The Great Northern Hotel , starting at 189 pounds per night, which offers a true taste of London charm at a relatively affordable price (plus, you'll get tea with biscuits and jam every afternoon). If you’re looking for a lower-budget option -- it is just one night, after all -- check out the Clink78 Hostel , which offers private rooms starting at 65 pounds per night, and is clean and reliable. Another option is the London outpost of the hip Generator hostel brand. It also offers private rooms.

Day 7: Arrival in London and Trafalgar Square

In the morning, catch the high-speed Eurostar train -- they run every hour or so -- from Gare du Nord. You’ll arrive at St. Pancras station in London in a little under two-and-a-half hours.

After you’ve arrived at your hotel, take the tube to Trafalgar Square, a great place to begin. Walk down the mall to Buckingham Palace, which will most likely be swarming with tourists -- but it’s still grand, and a must-see.

After stopping for for a bite to eat ( Portrait Restaurant in the National Gallery and Cafe in the Crypt are both convenient options), step into the National Gallery in the afternoon -- it’s worth wandering around for at least an hour. Don’t try to see everything; just pick one or two galleries that strike your fancy. If you’re really feeling ambitious, make your way to St. Paul’s Cathedral before 4 p.m., and be sure to buy your ticket beforehand for a discount.

Finally, head to The Quality Chophouse , not too far away, for a classically British meal that’s doesn't feel forced. Try the steak and the confit potatoes, and the terrines are also very good. It’s a great place to end your journey in London, and start dreaming about your next trip.

Customizable Itinerary

London – luscious london.

London is a city that stands at the top of everyone’s destination list, filled with vast history and captivating heritage. Your private transfer will await your arrival at the airport, ready to escort you to your sensational hotel in the heart of the city. Glass-topped boats may float down the River Thames reflecting the Gothic exterior of Parliament. Teahouses can fill with people ordering tiers of cucumber sandwiches and sweet pistachio cakes. People will stroll along the pebbled walkways of the park as elements of the city and country’s imperial past acting as embellishments to the contemporary culture.

What's Included:

London – A Different World

Your guide will meet you at your hotel after breakfast and lead you into the cosmopolitan splendor of London. Westminster Abbey is situated near Parliament and was erected in the 11th century by Edward the Confessor. For over seven centuries, patriarchs were crowned in the abbey and buried in the catacombs. At the North Transept, you find Poet’s Corner, where statues of numerous poets and writers commemorate scholars like Sir Walter Scott and William Shakespeare. A familiar herbaceous aroma lingers in the air, and the regal poses of historic poets add to the grace of the cloister.

London – Explore at Leisure

After breakfast, the day is yours to experience London as you wish, from strolling along the 350 acres of Hyde Park to venturing into the subterranean world of London to view Churchill’s War Rooms. The majesty of London runs so deep that it is impossible to see everything in a single day. The Globe Theatre sits alongside the water commemorated by a small museum near the more contemporary Tate Modern. You can visit King’s Cross Station to see Platform 9 ¾ from the Harry Potter series or The British Museum's more than 13 million ancient artifacts.

Paris – Under the English Channel

Your private transfer will meet you at the hotel and escort you to St. Pancras International, where you board the comforts of your luxury train car. The Chunnel opened in 1994, connecting Folkestone, England to Calais, France by 31 miles underneath the English Channel. When you reach Paris, your private transfer will greet you at the train station and escort you to the comforts and spectacular views of your hotel. The aroma of mouthwatering macaroons may drift from Angelina, Audrey Hepburn’s favorite café in the city, across the boulevard from the Tuileries Gardens providing the perfect welcoming ambiance.

Paris – Towers and Triomphe

Morning in Paris is immediately different than morning in London. The air has a different aroma, one filled with fresh pastries and sweet, fruity tarts. After your meal, your guide meets you at the hotel and whisks you out into the city famed for its romantic architecture and artistic sensibilities. Place de la Concorde is one of the largest public squares in France measuring more than 21 acres and touching the edge of the glamorous Champs Elysees. The trickling water may add to the classical ambiance.

Paris – Exclaiming Paris Exploration

The day is yours to enjoy Paris at your whim and pleasure. You could spend the day in regal opulence at the Palace of Versailles or wander through the limitless wonders of the Louvre. The Musee d’Orsay decorates the Old Train station on the famed Left Bank. The museum opened in the 1980s and houses collections of French artists between 1848 and 1915. The large decorative timepiece emanates Beaux-Arts design. You can find the famous Renoir, Bal du Moulin de la Galette , or Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, which was painted in 1876 in the iconic impressionist’s style.

Rome – Lights to Eternity

Your private transfer will escort you to the airport for your flight to the Eternal City, Rome. Rome has a skyline of historic cathedrals, built with stone dating back to the Roman Empire. Palm trees line the boulevards and rustle in the breeze. The aroma of zesty orange trees gives way to the scent of freshly made pasta and herbaceous basil. After settling into your luxurious hotel, the ancient history may become visceral, placing you at the center of the grand palaces and wondrous domes, elegant artwork and mouthwatering cuisine.

Rome – City in the Spotlight

Your guide will meet you at the hotel after breakfast and take you deeper into the historic center of the city, touching the Colosseum and wandering into the Pantheon. The edifice was erected between 118 and 128 AD with powerful granite Corinthian columns supporting the pediment linking to the rotunda. The Oculus floods the interior with natural light, moving with the shifting sun. A statue of Madonna and Child marks the tomb of Renaissance master Raphael. The marble figures stand watch with delicate features inside the decadent pagan building refurbished as a 17th-century church.

Rome – Roman Holiday

You can savor the foam of a frothy cappuccino, even dipping biscotti into the coffee to absorb some of the extra flavors, and adding a little crunch. The day is yours in Rome to relish in the city as you please, so visit the Vatican Museum to see the Sistine Chapel or enjoy the energetic ambiance around the Spanish Steps. The Galleria Borghese was established in the early 20th century in the former Villa Borghese Pinciana. The villa was constructed in the 17th century. The aroma of orange zest enlivens the morning around the estate in the summer. 

Rome - Roman Expression

With another day at your leisure in Rome, you can bask in the city's exceptional beauty at your pace. You can wander through the dynamic galleries of the Diocletian Baths or witness the masterpieces of Raphael on display in Villa Farnesina. You could also venture outside of the ancient city gates to view the preserved catacombs of St Callixtus. Your guide can lead you 65 feet underground to find the labyrinth beneath the edges of Rome where ancient Christians buried their dead and decorated their tombs with fascinating iconography.  

Rome – Depart to Home

In the morning you find the sounds of the city coursing around the soothing Tiber River. The Castel Sant’Angelo rises above the banks of the river with a cylindrical tower, once home to historic popes and commissioned by Emperor Hadrian. The glories of Rome’s past continue, giving it the name the Eternal City. After breakfast, your private transfer will meet you at your hotel and escort you to the Fiumicino Airport for your flight home. Although your vacation is ending you know the images of your time in Europe will continue, just like Rome, to ceaselessly inspire you.

Trip Highlights

  • Witness the architectural grandeur of the Parliament building and the Elizabeth Tower, home to Big Ben

Where you could stay

paris london italy trip

Just moments from bustling Soho and a stone’s throw from Mayfair, the Ham Yard Hotel is an oasis of calm in the heart of central London.

Quintessentially British but with a modern twist, the hotel is bursting with character and is impeccably styled, its decor a unique mix of vibrant colours, patterns and textures. Each room has been individually designed and features floor-to-ceiling windows. There is the option of interconnecting rooms, making it an ideal base for families.

Enjoy sweeping views across the London skyline from the roof terrace, a haven of tranquility with lush planting and tinkling fountains. There’s a real buzz around the beehive and the kitchen garden keeps the hotel restaurant’s larder well stocked. When you need to put your feet up, you can relax with the papers or a book in the library or curl up in front of the fireplace in the drawing room.

There’s a world of culture on your doorstep, but in between soaking it up at the nearby galleries and museums be sure to pull up a chair at the bar and sip an expertly mixed cocktail or enjoy a decadent afternoon tea.

Since its opening in 1906 César Ritz, this London landmark has been a firm favourite of royalty, heads of state and thousands of discerning guests for over a century, and has become a symbol synonymous with true luxury.

Its opulent Louis XVI neoclassical style flows throughout the establishment, from the grand Long Gallery lobby and into each of its 111 rooms with their signature blue, yellow, rose pink or peach colours. Some offer exquisite views into Green Park or Piccadilly and a handful can be connected for families.

23 suites range in size from 62 square metres (665 square feet) to a positively palatial 260 square metres (2,802 square feet) five bedroom suite. Each enjoy 24-hour butler service and a one-way London airport transfer in the chauffeur driven Ritz Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The Palm Court is the setting for the quintessentially British Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, while the Rivoli Bar is the place for Champagne and cocktails amidst Art Deco glamour. The Ritz Restaurant, one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world, serves timeless fine French classics.

There is also a spa on the seventh floor, a tranquil sanctuary in this bustling part of town, and the exclusive Ritz Club with its own bar, award-winning restaurant and 24 hour gaming facilities which residents of the hotel are welcome to visit during their stay.

Wonderfully located between the Strand and the northern banks of the River Thames, The Savoy has stood as a London landmark since its opening in 1889.

268 luxury rooms and suites celebrate two distinct historic styles – stately English Edwardian and Art Deco grandeur – each encapsulating a timeless London glamour. Many enjoy wonderful views across the river and to other monuments around the city.

Those staying in suites have a dedicated butler service, and all guests have access to Beauty and Fitness, a private facility in which offers spa treatments, a private pool, and 24-hour gym.

Fine dining is central to The Savoy’s history, indeed upon its opening it attracted an aristocratic crowd in full regalia, suppering in public for the first time. Today, Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill offers informal dining in a stylish Deco setting, whilst Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill presents a British menu with a French touch. Simpson’s-in-the-Strand celebrates the best of British and is famous for its roasts.

The award-winning Beaufort Bar is renowned for pushing the boundaries of mixology and the Knight’s Bar is perfect for pre-theatre drinks. The beautiful Thames Foyer is where The Savoy serves one of London’s best Afternoon Teas.

With its beautiful architecture, fascinating history and cosmopolitan buzz, London really does tick all the boxes. Enjoy everything this wonderful city has to offer with a stay at The Rosewood London; located in an Edwardian Grade II listed building, its grand stonework and stunning facade indicative of what lies within.

The hotel is located on High Holborn, one of the capital’s most historic thoroughfares. You’re ideally situated to explore the heart of the city with Covent Garden, the City and the West End on your doorstep. When you’re not out exploring, relax in one of the 262 rooms or 44 suites complete with bespoke furnishings, marble bathrooms and Nespresso coffee machines.

The rich history of both the city and the hotel is reflected in its design which marries together a traditional manor house feel with modern British style. Guests enter the hotel through a impressive archway which leads to a grand Edwardian courtyard. The rose bronze gallery links the hotel’s public spaces and the spectacular Renaissance-style marble staircase winds its way through all seven storeys.

Sit back and enjoy the innovative cuisine in the dining room with its reclaimed oak, antique mirrors and red leather banquettes. The mirror room is a dazzling delight and here you can indulge in the most British of traditions, afternoon tea. One room sure to get you talking is Scarfes Bar; here the walls are covered in the artwork of Gerald Scarfe, acclaimed British artist and political cartoonist for the Sunday Times for 44 years. The terrace, with seasonal planting and lush greenery, is a real oasis of calm and the heated benches mean you can sit and soak up the atmosphere no matter what the weather is doing.

The streets of London are just begging to be explored and you have the National Gallery, Charles Dickens museum and the British Museum are just a stone’s throw away and the Tate Modern across the Thames. The glitz and glamour of the West End is calling so be sure to catch a show at one of the city’s many magical theatres.

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey stands next to the magnificent Houses of Parliament and is steeped in more than 1,000 years of history.

The Tower of London

One of the city’s most famous landmarks, the Tower of London has seen several phases of expansion, mainly under Kings Richard the Lionheart, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Tower is perhaps best known as a prison, a function it performed from 1100 right up until 1952. A highlight for many are the Crown Jewels. Still regularly used by The Queen in important national ceremonies, they are the most powerful symbols of the British Monarchy, holding deep religious and cultural significance in the nation’s history.

Royal London

Britain is renowned for its pomp and ceremony and the British Royal Family is the most famous in the world.

Hunt treasure in the British Museum

Journey around the world’s history through the British Museum’s collections of cultural artefacts on this special treasure hunt. You’ll discover how ancient civilisations used to entertain themselves, from the Egyptians (who were so keen on board games they buried their dead with them) to the Mesopotamians (creators of backgammon) to the traditional Roman knucklebones. At the end, the winners will receive medals in a prize-giving ceremony.

paris london italy trip

Explore the Southbank

London’s unofficial culture mile, the Southbank boasts free exhibitions, movies at the British Film Institute and shows at the National Theatre.

paris london italy trip

Visit Shakespeare's Globe

The Southbank’s world-class cultural institutions include Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Step back in time as you enter into this reconstruction of Shakespeare’s premier venue, where people still flock to see productions of the Bard’s work.

Three fun-filled nights in Paris

After three nights in the vibrant English capital, you’ll travel by Eurostar across the Channel to Paris . The French capital is seductive, stunning and timeless.

There’s plenty to do and see that captivates little ones. Everyone can recreate their favourite patisserie with a private class in French baking.

  • 48 rooms and suites
  • Private garden
  • Guerlain spa

A former private residence, Relais Christine is a charming boutique hotel nestled in Paris’ Left Bank in Saint-Germain des-Prés.

With just 48 rooms and suites, the hotel has a wonderfully intimate feel. Antique furnishings, rich fabrics and exquisite marble bathrooms give rooms an undeniably French feel, and some come with balconies from which to admire this corner of the capital.

The cosy lounge with fireplace is the perfect place to relax with a morning coffee and the papers, or a glass of wine before you set off to discover the Latin Quarter which lies right on your doorstep.

A paved courtyard sits between the front and back buildings and leads to the entrance. A beautiful garden, accessible to only a few hotel guests, is a real oasis of calm where greenery is laced across the walls and flowers tumble from the balconies above.

There is also a Guerlain spa with Jacuzzi, sauna, exercise room and private treatment rooms where you can relax and unwind.

paris london italy trip

The former home of Napoleon’s grand nephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, the Shangri-La Paris is every bit as regal as you might expect.

Beyond the elegant façade is a hotel that oozes old-world charm. The opulent rooms are decorated in soft shades of blue, white and ecru with silk-threaded wallpaper, textured panels and custom-made furnishings. Marble bathrooms come with underfloor heating, some offering views of the Eiffel Tower from the bathtub.

Dining at the Shangri-La is a real treat, its restaurants showered with stars. L’Abeille is named after Napoleon’s favourite emblem, the bee, and has been awarded two Michelin stars for its exceptional French cuisine. It also enjoys a prime location, looking out over the garden. Not to be outshone, Shang Palace, inspired by south east China’s culinary traditions, has been awarded one star. For French and Asian cuisine, dine under the huge glass dome at La Bauhihia.

The hotel’s fitness centre, housed in the original stables of the Prince’s home, features an indoor swimming pool, open-air terrace, treatment rooms and a gym. You’re also ideally situated to explore the city, adjacent to the Jardins du Trocadéro and opposite the Eiffel Tower.

paris london italy trip

Having undergone nearly four years of refurbishment to the tune of €200 million, the Ritz Paris finally re-opens it doors from April 2016.

One of the most iconic hotels in the world, the Ritz is famous for being Ernest Hemingway’s old haunt during the 1920s, where he was said to have been joined by his contemporary F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today, Bar Hemingway is headed up by one of the world’s best bartenders, Colin Field.

Another famous patron of the hotel was Coco Chanel, who moved into a suite from 1934 until her death in 1971 – so it seems fitting that the Ritz is home to the first and only Chanel Spa in the world. The spa will be located in the new Ritz Club, which is also home to a pool, Turkish bath and sauna.

The rooms and suites have all been completely refurbished, with heated bathroom floors in all rooms and private terraces for all the suites. The classic design remains, but with modern amenities to ensure a stay at the Ritz is as comfortable and luxurious as it is a glimpse into Paris’ decadent past.

The backstage tour of Versailles

After visiting the main rooms of the palace, enjoy exclusive access to apartments and rooms closed to the public, such as the apartments of Madame de Tourvel, secret passages and a gallery located above the Hall of Mirrors.

Spend three nights exploring Rome

Your last stop takes you to the epicentre of European culture and history. Rome , Italy’s capital and largest city, needs little introduction. See the city like the locals with a ride on a Vespa, the most popular and stylish mode of transport, before travelling back in time to the age of Michelangelo on a tour of the Vatican City. No trip to Italy would be complete without a taste of the country’s most prized cuisine: pizza. You’ll learn essential and lifelong skills at an authentically Italian pizza-making class, leaving with a new team of pizza bakers ready to take on dinner duty.

Street life in Rome

The sights of Vatican City

paris london italy trip

The Vatican City is the smallest state in the world, covering just 0.44 square kilometres. At the sprawling Vatican Museum, you’ll tour the seemingly endless collection of treasures as you make your way to the single work of art that dwarfs them all: Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. This tour will end with the extraordinary St. Peter’s Basilica designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

paris london italy trip

Take a pizza-making workshop

No visit to Italy would be complete without tasting an authentic Italian pizza, but what better way to experience this Italian dish than making your own? You’ll be welcomed by a professional pizza maker and be taken through the process. You’ll get to knead the dough, create the toppings, pop it into the oven and, best of all, eat your creation too.

paris london italy trip

Set off on a Vespa tour

See the sights of Rome from the back of a vintage Vespa, in true ‘Roman Holiday’ style as you weave your way through large avenues to tiny alleyways. The tour will be led by a private bilingual guide and will take in all the most important monuments and neighbourhoods. Driven by professional Vespa drivers, passengers are assured complete safety and peace of mind.

Edit Sober: Visit the café haunts of literary giants like Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, and many others. Grab a coffee and a journal and you’ll fit right in.

Ah, the Eternal City. Home of bruschetta, Catholicism, gladiators, democracy, Michelangelo, and of course, the Roman ruins.

Or, take the slushy on the go and walk around the area, filled with ancient ruins like the Roman Forum. Testaccio: Flip the switch and head to the anti-trendy neighborhood packed with those escaping the art-gazing, site-seeing scene. The rich history and authentic, mouth-watering food draw many to the circular streets lined with bars and nightclubs.

Taste of Italy Pasta-Making Class (extra cost)

When in Rome: cook pasta. Learn to craft the dough for homemade pasta, and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by your own hands. You’ll also get to taste local snacks and learn about Italian food traditions. Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

Today you get to explore centuries worth of culinary perfection, unbelievable architecture, and local fashion on your own. And let it be said, Rome looks goooood for being 2,000 years old. (It must moisturize.) Shop, eat, drink, and talk like an Italian (with your hands) during your free day. Embrace the culture and indulge in carbs during your last day in the Eternal City.

Capitoline Museum: Strike a pose with sculptures of ancient romans (face-swaps recommended). Up on a hill overlooking the Forum, this museum has some amazing ancient sculptures.

This excursion is  pre-book  only; if your trip is less than 90 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase. This excursion is also non-refundable 95 days prior to departure.

Arrivederci, amici! Translation: Goodbye, friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?

American travelers cannot get enough of England, and to this day it consistently ranks in the three most popular European countries in terms of visitors per year. Nearly everyone visits London, one of the world`s most important cities and the epicenter of what was once a vast world empire, but England should definitely be explored in-depth, from the charm of the Cotswolds to the seaside resorts on the English Channel and the Irish Sea to the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Westcountry. England is a country where the present day and over a millennia of history routinely intersect.

France remains one of the worlds most talked-about and written-about destinations. Whether the romance of Paris sweeps you off your feet or you fall gently for the relaxed life of Provence, France is a place for lovers, and will leave you spellbound. Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's great cities, with enough monuments, museums, restaurants, theatres and shows to last a lifetime. The northern provinces of Normandy and Brittany are steeped in history while the Loire Valley is world famous for its châteaux. And there is more to explore.

paris london italy trip

Paris is regarded as one of the most dynamic cities in Europe, and for good reason: the city assaults the senses; demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled. Gaze at impressive monuments and savor its gourmet cheeses, chocolates, wines, and seafood. Paris is relatively small as capitals go, with many of its major sights and museums within walking distance of each other. A world of discovery awaits in every hidden corner and at all the famous sites, there is so much to explore. Visit the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Jardin des Tuileries, Latin Quarter, Avenue des Champs Elysees, Musee d'Orsay, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe and so much more!

paris london italy trip

With sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways, Venice is straight out of an 18th-century Canaletto masterpiece. No matter how many times you have seen it in movies or TV commercials, the real thing is more surreal and dreamlike than you ever imagined. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale are exotic melanges of Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. It is full of secrets, ineffably romantic, and - at times - given over entirely to pleasure. You must walk everywhere in Venice and where you cannot walk, you go by water. Explore Piazza San Marco, Stroll Across the Rialto Bridge, Get Lost in the Endless Canals, Admire the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Visit the San Giorgio dei Greci, Walk Around the Jewish Ghetto, Learn About Venice's Musical History, Tour Venice's Unique Architecture at Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Celebrate One of Venice' Many Festivals, Go Window Shopping, and so much more.

paris london italy trip

Rome is undeniably stunning, from its rich ancient culture, must try pizzas and coffees or just experience a touch of Europe. This city is packed full of sights, with thousands of years of history layered upon itself - you'll find everything here from Roman ruins to Renaissance art. It's also home to fantastic food, the Vatican City, and sights galore. Explore and discover the Roman Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine; Discover the Vatican, the smallest independent state in the world; Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain; Marvel at the Pantheon; Sit on the Spanish Steps; Wander the Piazzas; Eat the best Gelato in Rome; Climb Palatine Hill; Walk the Ancient Appian Way; Go to the Vatican Museums and so much more.

11 Best first-time Europe itineraries for 1, 2, or 3 weeks

Europe is going to be very busy in the summer of 2024 as the world is back to normal and travel demand is higher than ever. One other key factor is that most European currencies are still hovering at lower levels historically compared to the US dollar, which means that Europe will feel somewhat cheap again this year. In fact, according to our World Backpacker Index , European cities like Lisbon, Madrid, and Munich are about 30% cheaper to visit than Boston, Chicago, and New York City. In other words, flying to Europe might seem expensive, but most things will be cheaper once you get there compared to the costs of visiting a large US city.

Below you’ll find 11 of the most popular and best itineraries for a first visit to Europe. Your first visit is not really the time to be different or creative, and the famous destinations tend to be popular for a reason. In other words, it’s kind of silly to visit, say, Bulgaria, if you’ve not yet been to France or Italy. I lay out the best options along with how long to stay in each place as a general guide. I also discuss Mediterranean cruises, which can actually be an amazing way to see a lot of Europe on your first visit, especially if you don’t like going back and forth to train stations and airports every 2 or 3 days.

For a bit of fun you might be interested in the cheapest 5-star hotels in Europe , which start at US$80 per night for really nice hotels. It helps show that if you choose some of the cheaper cities, you can treat yourself to some luxury that you can’t afford in most other places.

This article was last updated in March, 2024.

There are 11 starter itineraries described in detail below

  • Classic London and Paris
  • England and Scotland
  • Paris and Italy
  • Mediterranean cruise
  • France, Belgium, and Netherlands
  • Paris and elsewhere in France
  • Switzerland
  • Best of cheap eastern Europe

For each itinerary there are suggestions of other destinations that are easy to add on to the main cities.

Note: This article was most recently updated in March, 2024

Building the best itinerary for your first trip to Europe

Below there are 11 popular itineraries for one week in Europe. If you’ve only got a week then choose one of them and assume you’ll return again to conquer more of this amazing part of the world. If you’ve got more time then you can choose from some of the top add-on suggestions for each one.

Start in the most famous cities

Your first visit to Europe is no time to try to be different or edgy. I recommend that you  focus on these 5 great cities  before you start branching out into cheaper or more obscure places.

Keep your travel days to a minimum

paris london italy trip

Spend 3 (or 4) nights in almost every major city

paris london italy trip

So many first-time visitors are initially planning on spending only 1 or 2 nights in major cities that I wrote a detailed explanation of why  3 nights is ideal for almost all European cities , even if you want to see as much as possible.

3 (or 4) nights will be enough for any city on your first trip

Most first-time visitors are tempted to move too quickly, but it can also be a mistake to move too slowly. It’s really amazing how much you can see in two full sightseeing days. If you spend too long in one city you’ll end up seeing things that are way down your list, while you could be in another city seeing things at the top of your list there.

Choose cities that are easy to reach from each other

paris london italy trip

For your first trip it’s best to visit cities that are no more than a 5-hour train ride apart.

Choose cities that are connected by reasonable train rides rather than flights

To build on the point above, finding cheap flights within Europe is easy, but train travel is about a million times more enjoyable and less stressful. You’ll enjoy the train rides almost as much as the cities, so focus on places that are within 5 hours of each other by train.

Start with one of the classic itineraries below, and then add to it if you have more time

If you only have 7 days then you’ll find a list below of classic itineraries that are well-suited to a first visit to Europe. Hopefully you have more than 7 days though, and if you do you can add in one or more of the suggested add-on cities to build an itinerary that appeals most to you.

Price of travel

Best 1-week itineraries for the first time in Europe

Itinerary 1: classic london and paris.

  • London  (3 or 4 nights)
  • Paris  (3 or 4 nights)

Fly into either city and take the 2-hour Eurostar train between them

paris london italy trip

London highlights

  • Big Ben and Parliament
  • Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral
  • Tower of London and Tower Bridge
  • West End shows (Broadway equivalent) and classic pubs
  • Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle

Paris is actually far more beautiful than London and the food is famously much better as well. Since Paris gets so many tourists from non-French speaking countries, it’s easy to get by on just English, and the Metro system makes it fast and easy to get around. The architecture of both cities is amazing from the Tower of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey to the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. These cities each pack a huge punch and they are very different from each other as well. Actually, England is arguably the best choice for your first trip to Europe .

Paris highlights

  • Eiffel Tower
  • Louvre Museum and Museum de Orsay
  • Arc de Triomphe and other monuments
  • Montmartre neighborhood and Sacré Coeur Cathedral
  • Probably the world’s best affordable restaurants and wine

Best add-ons to London and Paris

  • Edinburgh  (2 or 3 nights, from London)
  • Amsterdam  (2 or 3 nights, from Paris)
  • Bruges  and  Brussels  (2 nights, from Paris)

Itinerary 2: England and Scotland

  • York (1 night)
  • Edinburgh, Scotland  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Inverness, Scotland (2 or 3 nights)

paris london italy trip

York is a small Roman city with intact city walls and one of the most famous cathedrals in Europe. Edinburgh is not only the capital of Scotland, but it’s easily the second most interesting city in all of Britain. If your time is short, skip York and spend more time in Edinburgh.

If you prefer to focus on the south of England on your first trip then the best option is to go to Bath or nearby Bristol after London. Bath is another of England’s top destinations and it’s a gorgeous city that has been a spa resort for many centuries. It’s also reasonably close to Stonehenge. You can also easily get to Cornwall in England’s southwest corner from Bath, and that’s a whole different and fascinating experience (with nicer weather than up north).

If you’ve got more than a week and want to spend more time in Scotland, especially in the summer months, the place to head to is Inverness. It’s a small town that is considered the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, but it’s an interesting and charming place on its own. You can take day-trips by bus to the highlights of the Highlands including the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness. Between you and me, it’s better to minimize time in Loch Ness or skip it altogether because it’s not one of the more photogenic parts of Scotland and the monster has always been a hoax.

Travel times between the recommended places

  • London to York by train: 2 hours
  • York to Edinburgh by train: 2.5 hours
  • London to Edinburgh by train: 4 hours
  • Edinburgh to Inverness by train: 3.5 hours
  • London to Bath by train: 85 minutes

Best add-ons to England and Scotland

  • Paris  (3 or 4 nights from London)
  • Amsterdam  (3 nights from Paris)

Itinerary 3: Paris and Italy

  • Paris (3 or 4 nights)
  • Venice (1 night)
  • Florence (2 or 3 nights)
  • Rome (3 nights)

paris london italy trip

From Paris you can easily fly to Venice (or nearby Treviso) where you should try to spend about 24 hours. Venice is small enough to see in a full day, and so crowded that most people are satisfied to leave after that day. The key is to stay in the main part of the main island so you can enjoy Venice before the cruise passengers and day-trippers arrive, and also after they leave for the day. Two nights in Venice would not be wasted time, and it’s possibly the most gorgeous city in the entire world, but you can see the best of it in a bit over 24 hours.

paris london italy trip

Rome also lives up to the hype and spending a day in the Vatican City will be a highlight even for non-Catholics, but it’s also a crowded and busy city so three days is usually enough for most people. Similar to Paris, Rome is an unusually beautiful city from almost any angle when you are in the historical center. You’ll walk through a stunning piazza (town square) and then turn a corner and you’ll see gorgeous buildings or public statues that are as nice as anything in the museums. Seriously, it’s worth a visit.

Paris to Venice flight: 1 hour 35 minutes Venice to Florence by train: 1 hour 53 minutes Florence to Rome by train: 1 hour 16 minutes

You can of course instead fly from Paris to Rome and then go north to Florence and then to Venice and fly home (or back to Paris) from there, and it would be just as enjoyable.

Best add-ons to Paris and Italy

  • Nice/Cannes/Monaco  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Avignon (2 nights)
  • Bourges (2 nights)
  • Bordeaux (2 nights)
  • Aix-en-Provence (2 nights)
  • Reims (2 nights)
  • Dijon/Burgundy (2 nights)
  • Milan  (1 or 2 nights)
  • Lake Como (2 nights)
  • Siena (2 nights)
  • Cinque Terre (1 night)
  • Naples / Sorrento /Amalfi Coast/Pompeii/Capri (3 to 5 nights)
  • Sicily (3 to 4 nights)

Itinerary 4: Mediterranean cruise

paris london italy trip

In spite of the reputation of cruises to be floating buffets, they can actually be an excellent way to visit a great number of amazing European cities in a short time. The ship typically is in port from the early morning until mid evening, often giving you the opportunity to have dinner in the city (unlike Caribbean cruises). Better still, the cruise ports are often near the center of town, so you can just walk off the ship and do sightseeing on foot or by public transportation.

Mediterranean cruises usually start at 7 nights but can go up to 3 weeks, which can provide an amazing tour of the entire region without having to pack and repack your bags more than once. They also can provide excellent value, especially compared to the price of taking trains or flights and finding new hotels in every destination.

Most popular Mediterranean departure ports

Barcelona, Spain – It’s an easy port to reach. Ships generally go from Barcelona with stops in France and then Italy.

Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy – The port isn’t very close to Rome, but it’s easy to get back and forth. Ships go west to France and Spain as well as south around the tip of Italy and then on to Croatia, Venice, and to Greece.

Venice, Italy – The cruise ships no longer dock close to the best tourist areas, but it’s easy enough to visit Venice for a day or two before boarding a ship. Ships starting in Venice go south and then head west and to Rome and then to France, or they go south to Croatia and then head east to Greece.

Athens, Greece – The cruise port of Piraeus is just south of Athens and easy to reach. Ships from Athens usually head west towards Croatia, Italy, France, and Spain, but there are also ships that visit Greek islands and Turkey.

>>> Check for deals on Mediterranean cruises

Alternative to consider: a river cruise

paris london italy trip

Amsterdam ,  Budapest , and  Prague  are some of the most popular river cruise ports, but there are dozens of others including many smaller towns in France where few other tourists will be when you stroll off the ship. There is little or no entertainment on the river cruise ships, but passengers don’t miss it because the entire day and into the evening is spent just steps from local cultural offerings and restaurants.

>>> Check for Europe and river cruise deals

Itinerary 5: France, Belgium, and Netherlands

  • Paris  (3 nights)
  • Brussels  and  Bruges  (1 or 2 nights)
  • Amsterdam  (2 or 3 nights)

Paris to Brussels: 1 hour 22 minutes Brussels to Bruge: 58 minutes Bruges to Amsterdam: 2 hours 45 minutes Amsterdam to Paris: 3 hours 17 minutes

paris london italy trip

Spending 4 nights in Paris and 3 nights in Amsterdam would be a great trip, but if you want to see something else you’ve got a couple options in between. My advice is to spend an afternoon looking around the Grand Place (main square) in Brussels and then hop a 58-minute train ride to Bruges for a night or two. Brussels isn’t a great tourist city, but Bruges really is so it’s a better option for most people. Whatever you choose out of this group, you can be back in Paris on another high-speed train for your flight home.

Best add-ons to France, Belgium, and Netherlands

  • Luxembourg City  (1 or 2 nights)
  • Cologne, Germany (1 or 2 nights)
  • Interlaken, Switzerland  (2 or 3 nights)

>>> Check Paris hotel deals >>> Check Bruges hotel deals >>> Check Amsterdam hotel deals

Itinerary 6: Paris and elsewhere in France

And a choice of:

  • Normandy (2 nights)

paris london italy trip

While Nice is a wonderful tourist city for a look at the French Riviera, the other larger cities of Lyon and Marseilles are probably better saved for a future trip because they are light on key sights compared to many smaller towns. Wine lovers can rent a car or take trains into Bordeaux or Burgundy. Since you can get between most of these towns by train in 2 hours or less, spending only 2 nights in each one is a reasonable option if you want to see a lot in a short time.

Normandy is an interesting choice and easy to reach in only about two hours by train from Paris. Some visitors like to see the famous WWII beaches and memorials, while others (especially in summer) like to check out one or more of the beach-resort towns. Deauville is one of the more famous of those, and it’s also famous for its horse race track and as one of the epicenters of the industry in Europe.

Best add-ons to Paris and elsewhere

  • More France, of course

>>> Check Paris hotel deals >>> Check Nice hotel deals

Itinerary 7: Italy

  • Rome  (3 nights)
  • Florence  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Venice  (1 or 2 nights)

Rome to Florence: 1 hour 16 minutes Florence to Venice: 1 hour 53 minutes

paris london italy trip

Venice is small enough that you can see the main sights in about 24 hours, and it’s so insanely crowded that many people tire of it after about a day as well. It’s better to pay more for a hotel to be on the main island and visit quickly than to save money with a hotel on the mainland where you’ll be in crowds going back and forth as well. Florence is the most relaxing of the 3, and also a great base for side trips to Pisa, Siena, and Cinque Terre, just to name a few.

Going to Italy? Here are the  best first-time Italy itineraries for 3 days to 2 weeks  (in much greater detail)

Best add-ons to Italy

>>> Check Rome hotel deals >>> Check Florence hotel deals >>> Check Venice hotel deals

Itinerary 8: Spain

  • Madrid  (4 nights) (including day trip to Toledo)
  • Barcelona  (3 nights)

Madrid to Barcelona: 2 hours 30 minutes

paris london italy trip

A huge part of Spain’s tourism industry is built around its southern beaches and islands such as Ibiza, Mallorca, and Tenerife (in the Canary Islands). For most people it’s best to ignore those places on your first trip because none of the beaches are special enough to spend days on them compared to the culture of the cities.

Best add-ons to Spain

  • Valencia  (2 nights)
  • Seville  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Granada  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Lisbon  (3 nights)

By popular demand, I’ve added a full article on where to go in Spain with itineraries from 7 to 10 days up to two weeks .

Itinerary 9: Germany

  • Berlin  (3 nights)
  • Munich  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Rothenburg ob der Tauber (1 night)
  • Füssen (1 night)

Berlin to Munich: 6 hours 2 minutes Munich to Rothenburg ob der Tauber: 2 hours 56 minutes Munich to Füssen: 2 hours 4 minutes

paris london italy trip

Those two cities are the keys to a Germany visit, and after that you’ve got a wide variety of choices. I cover most of the popular choices in my article on  where to go in Germany , which covers several smaller towns that are major highlights.

Best add-ons to Germany

  • Cologne (1 or 2 nights)
  • Hamburg  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Amsterdam  (3 nights)
  • Prague  (3 nights)
  • Salzburg  (2 or 3 nights)
  • Vienna  (3 nights)
  • Interlaken, Switzerland  (3 nights)
  • Lucerne, Switzerland  (2 or 3 nights)

>>> Check Berlin hotel deals >>> Check Munich hotel deals

Itinerary 10: Switzerland

  • Interlaken  (3 nights)
  • Bern (1 night)
  • Lucerne  (3 nights)

Zurich Airport to Interlaken: 2 hours 10 minutes Interlaken to Bern: 53 minutes Bern to Lucerne: 1 hour 50 minutes Lucerne to Zurich Airport: 1 hour 3 minutes

paris london italy trip

Interlaken is the best hub for the most dramatic Alps views and experiences. The one-hour cable car ride up to the Schilthorn observation deck is something you’ll never forget, and the only thing that might be more dramatic is the train ride up to the Jungfraujoch station, which is the highest in Europe. Lucerne is almost as beautiful with a scenic lake at its heart and also great mountaintop views nearby. If you do want to see a Swiss city then the capital of Bern is the most interesting and photogenic on a short visit. Read more about  where to go in Switzerland  for even more ideas.

Itinerary 11: Eastern Europe’s best cheap cities

Each of these cities is beautiful and historic, but English is less widely spoken so they can also be quite a bit more challenging for a first-time visitor. Another difficulty is that the trains between them are still quite slow compared to the high-speed rail in the West, so it takes most of a day from one to another, and a bus is often a better choice. I cover this best cheap Europe itinerary more fully in the linked article.

Prague to Budapest: 6 hours 41 minutes Budapest to Krakow: 9 hours 54 minutes (flying might be better)

Best add-ons to cheap Eastern Europe

11 Best first-time Europe itineraries for 1, 2, or 3 weeks " --> All Comments

Hi Roger, was reading your article and reply to various questions and its actually too good and kind from you. if you pls,help me out a route plan for 15days. but my catch is, i have to start from Stockholm.i like to end in rome to head back home. in between what should be my plan?thanks

' src=

I’m happy to help. Stockholm to Rome could be done in 15 days, but it would require skipping quite a few great places along the way. My recommendation would be to choose 5 or maybe 6 cities total and spend 3 days in each. If Stockholm is one of your cities you’d only have 12 days left but even if Stockholm didn’t count on the 15 days I think it’s probably best to fly from Stockholm to a city closer to Italy and then do the rest of it on shorter train rides. You could do Stockholm to Copenhagen by train, but those are pretty long train rides and honestly those two cities are pretty similar to each other.

So maybe Stockholm and then a flight to Paris and then trains to Venice, Florence and Rome? That sort of thing. Stockholm is just so remote that it would require at least 3 or 4 longer train journeys but if you flew from Stockholm to Paris (or Berlin or Prague or Budapest or wherever) the remaining train rides would be relatively short. I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions. -Roger

Firstly, I would like to thank you for the article and itineraries; they are very helpful.

My wife and I are planning a 3 to 4-month trip around the EU (Western Europe). Before I delve into the specifics of our itinerary, I am wondering if the same 3 to 5-day in each-city principle applies for cases where travellers will spend more time travelling around?

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Raf

Wow. That sounds amazing! Even when traveling for longer periods like that I’d recommend a minimum of 3 nights in almost any place you go. The main reason is your travel days tend to be kind of long when you factor in everything from checking out of one hotel to getting to the train station and waiting and then the journey time and then getting to your next hotel and getting situated. All of that usually takes 4 to 6 hours even when the train journey is only an hour or two, so you just don’t get much sightseeing done on those days. So if you only stay 2 nights in each city it means every other day is a travel day and that just takes up too much time.

That said, I think 3 or 4 days is enough time in most places as well. If you really want to get to know Paris, for example, you might stay a week there. But for most cities there are diminishing marginal returns starting on day 3 or 4. In other words, you’ll be able to see the 10 things that most interest you in 3 days or so, and at that point you might be ready to see the Top 10 things in the next city instead of the #11 through #20 things in the first city.

Another thing that is important with longer trips like that is to plan some down time at least every few weeks. If you try to do sightseeing 7 days per week for weeks at a time it starts to feel like a job. What I like to do is every two or three weeks find a smaller town or cheaper place where I can rent a little apartment or some place larger and more comfortable than a typical small European hotel room. And I like to stop in places without many sights otherwise it’s too tempting to keep sightseeing every day.

I’ve actually done quite a few long trips like this and I’m happy to help with any other advice if you like. -Roger

Comment*We are planning on Athens to Amsterdam from June 4, 2024 to Amsterdam June 24th.

We are thinking trains to major cities inbetween Athens and Amsterdam. We are open to anything and everything.

Priorities: Parthenon in Athens, Art Museums in Amsterdam (3-5 days in Amsterdam) Can you help us?

That is a tricky one. Both Athens and Amsterdam are great and very worthwhile, but once you go north of Athens to Thessaloniki in northern Greece, the train service is spotty and very slow all the way until you reach Budapest. Strangely enough, buses tend to be faster and much more frequent in those “eastern” countries like Bulgaria and Romania. Also, being perfectly honest, most of those in-between cities such as Sofia and Belgrade are kind of dull by European standards, although they are quite cheap.

If you really want to visit Athens I’d definitely start there and then after a few days fly to Budapest or some other city in that area that interests you and then carry on from there by train. In fact, Athens to Budapest and then trains to Prague then Berlin and then Amsterdam could be perfect. You could even add in a couple of days in Cesky Krumlov near Prague if you want to include a gorgeous smaller town among the big cities.

Those are all first-class cities and several of them are quite affordable as well. I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions. -Roger

Hi, my wife and I would like to visit Rome, Florence, Italy, Venice, Prague, Berlin and maybe Switzerland. This will be the first time travelling to Europe and I would appreciate your help in planning where to start, where to stay, how to get there and where to go. We will be coming from Trinidad and Tobago for 2 weeks. If possible, i would like a day-to-day plan.

Unfortunately I don’t have time to do a day-by-day plan for you, but I can help get you started. If you’ve got 14 nights I would keep the list to 5 total cities. If you tried to include Switzerland on this trip it would mean spending only 1 or 2 days in some cities and that means spending every other day on trains.

I think the best thing to do would be to fly into Berlin or Prague and then spend 3 days there and then take a train to the other one and spend 3 days there and then fly to Venice. Spend 1 or 2 days in Venice and then take a short train ride to Florence for 2 days or so and then a train ride down to Rome for your final 3 days and then a flight home or back to your starting city if that is cheaper. I’m happy to help if you have any other questions. -Roger

Hi, Roger. My wife and I (56 and 63) want to do our first trip to Europe from Canada and would like to start by visiting Portugal (Lisbon and Porto) and Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Granada y Sevilla with day trips to close small cities in between). What it would be your suggestion for: 1. Stay in each city for a 15/17 days trip? 2. any additions/modifications? 3. Train over flights internally? 4. If we travel with one suitcase of 50 Lbs would it work to take public transit when required? 5. Instead of this plan, would it be better to visit 1/2 famous city in different countries? Would appreciate your inputs. Than you Roger

If you’ve only got about 16 days I’d recommend choosing 5 or maybe 6 cities in total. I strongly believe that 3 nights is the best amount of time to stay in each city so you have two full sightseeing days in each one, although some smaller cities can be done a bit quicker. I go over the reasons in detail on this other article about how long to stay in each European city , but the main point is that if you stay only two nights it means literally spending every other day on trains or in airports and such and you just don’t get much sightseeing done on those travel days with all of the packing and unpacking and checking in and out of hotels.

I’d definitely include Lisbon, Madrid, and Barcelona. You could add a 2-day visit to Porto and 2 or 3 days each in Sevilla and Granada. I’d save Valencia for a future trip. It’s nice, but aside from the new buildings clustered in one area, it’s more generic than any of the others on your list.

The only train between Portugal and Madrid goes over night and I’m not a fan of those so I’d fly on that leg. But from there I’d definitely take the high-speed trains, which are fast and comfortable. Buy your tickets at least a couple months in advance for the best fares.

There will be room for a 50 lb suitcase on the flights (of course) and on the trains as well. On older trains they have you put them on racks above the seats, but on most of the more modern ones (like the high-speed trains) they also have room for larger bags at each end of the carriage. If you can lift them, there will definitely be room for them.

I think your plan sounds really good and those are all great cities. That said, for most first-time visitors to Europe I’d recommend Paris and Italy as those are really more dramatic and interesting, although also more crowded and somewhat more expensive as well. I think once you do the Iberia trip you’ll be hooked and you’ll start planning a trip to France and Italy for the coming years. Let me know if you have any other questions. -Roger

Hi, Roger. Thank you for your comments and recommendations and also for your prompt response. I have modified my plan as I have now 22 days. My Itinerary is Porto(3), Lisbon(3), Seville(2), Malaga(2), Madrid(3),Barcelona(3), Zaragoza(2) and Bilbao(3). What do you think? is this a good plan? Any suggestions? I am still debating between Malaga and Granada though. I included Bilbao to visit friends. The question on the luggage was more related to the comfort to pull a large back in public transit than the allowance in the planes or trains. I will appreciate your inputs. Thank you again, Roger

Those six more days will help a lot. I think your new plan looks really good. You can probably enjoy Porto in 2 days and add an extra day somewhere else, but you might also be dealing with jet-lag so 3 days might be better. Your itinerary looks efficient and logical.

I really like Granada and Malaga, but I think if I were to choose between the two I would go with Granada. Malaga is (in my opinion) an underrated city that is close to some extremely popular beach towns and it’s got a lot going for it, but if you aren’t also going to be staying by the beach I think I’d save it for another trip. Granada has got the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens and those are unlike anything else in Spain or the world for that matter. Granada is small enough to enjoy in two days and I think seeing the Alhambra will be more memorable than anything in Malaga.

Buy your train tickets as early as possible for the best times and fares, and the flight for Lisbon to Seville (or you could take a bus).

And again, your 50 lb suitcase will fit on city to city trains (although not as well on buses or trams within a city), but still (as the saying goes) no one ever went on a trip around Europe like this and swore they would pack more stuff the next time. In other words, 40 lbs is much easier than 50 lbs and getting laundry done cheaply in a country like Spain is quite easy. Let me know if you have any other questions. -Roger

Comment*Hi travelling first time to europe next year we are 55 years age group any suggestions for 10-12 days itenary with guided tour would be nice if any suggestion are there also april or may better time to visit there anil

Actually, all of my best suggestions for first-time visits to Europe are in the article above. If you specifically want a guided tour you’ll obviously just be choosing from the ones that are available from the companies you look it, although many of those should resemble the itineraries in my article. Planning your own trip to Europe is actually quite easy, and especially if you are going to the classic and most popular cities. I’ve got lots of articles that could help you.

I’m not sure how many guided tours you’ve done, but one thing to consider is that they always move at the speed of the slowest person in the group. If YOU are the slowest person in the group then it’s fine, but if you are 55 then you should be much faster than most other people on a guided tour. For example, if you have a coach/bus tour for a day with 5 or 6 stops, you always have to wait for the slowest people to get on an off the bus. I’ve done countless day tours this way and it can be frustrating waiting 10 extra minutes many times each day as slow people are trying their best.

I think my top two best suggestions are London and maybe another stop or two in England and then Paris and other stop or two in France, OR, Paris then another stop in France and then Venice, Florence, and Rome. It obviously depends whether England or Italy sounds more interesting. Let me know if I can be of any other help. -Roger

Planning a family trip with a adult and nearly adult children. Hoping to be able to do 18 to 20 days. Must sees are Paris, Venice, England, and Prague but would adore seeing more! What route would you suggest and should we rent a car, fly, train, river cruise? There are so many options and I’m completely overwhelmed! A suggested itinerary would be amazing!! Thank you!

That sounds like a great start to a plan. As far as “England” is concerned it’s probably best to just think of it as 3 or probably 4 nights in London. With 4 nights you’d have enough time for a good day trip to Bath/Stonehenge and Windsor or to Oxford or even York, but London is big enough to keep you busy and it’s probably best to just stay there and then take the Eurostar train to Paris for 3 or 4 nights.

Prague is a bit out of the way, but you can fly there cheaply enough if you want and then after 3 nights fly to Venice. After 2 nights in Venice I’d take a train down to Florence for 2 nights and then another train to Rome for 3 nights. That would be just about a perfect 18 to 20 day trip including Prague. I definitely wouldn’t rent a car as they tend to be counter productive when visiting a string of large cities that have bad traffic and expensive parking. Your itinerary doesn’t really work with a river cruise at all, but hopefully you can plan one in the future.

It would probably be cheapest to fly from Rome back to London for your flight home (being careful of which of London’s 5 airports you fly into because your flight home will almost certainly go out of Heathrow), but if you can get a flight home straight from Rome for a good price, that would be even better. Getting around by train in Europe is by far the best way wherever it’s close and fast enough, so I’d focus on trains in the places I mentioned. I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions. -Roger

Yes, I meant London. Thank you for picking up on that. After reading though your site and many, many of these informative comments, I think I have figured out a basic itinerary and would love your feedback and suggestions!

-Fly into London London(3 days) -Eurostar Train to Paris Paris (3 days) -Train to Switzerland – unsure which train company Switzerland (3 days) -Train to Venice?? Venice (2 days) -Train to Florence – which train company? Is there a pass? Florence (2 days) -Train to Rome Rome (2 days) -Fly to Prague Prague (3 days) -Fly home out of Prague

Very interested to hear your feedback. I know you suggest 3 nights but I am ok with missing out on some things in Rome/Florence if needed. Would love train suggestions and if passes are best. NO idea on how the trains operate in Europe.

Thank you so much for your time!

This itinerary looks amazing. My only real suggestion would be to spend only one day in Venice and three days in Rome, or at least a day and a half in Venice rather than two, but you’ll enjoy it no matter what. The thing is that Venice is about the size of a theme park like Disneyland and from 9 AM until 5 PM it feels even more crowded than Disneyland. It’s absolutely amazing, but also easy to get tired of the crowds and you’ll do your best sightseeing in the mornings before the day-trippers come and in the evenings after they’ve left. And Rome is huge with a long list of really cool sights so with only one full sightseeing day you’ll miss quite a few of them. But again, you’ll enjoy it no matter how you divide your time.

In most of Europe including between France and Switzerland and Italy, there is just one rail company per country so just book whatever comes up. From Paris to Basel, Switzerland you’ll take the France national service and then change trains to a Swiss train for your ride to Interlaken or Lucern. Then from Switzerland you’ll take (probably) a Swiss train to Spiez or Brig and then change there for an Italian train to Venice. You’ll buy it just as one ticket and it’ll include all the legs required to get from one city to your final city, and usually come with seat reservations as well (except in Switzerland).

My favorite site for checking schedules all over Europe is the Trainline . But you can also check the official rail sites of each country involved and I’d definitely check those prices before booking anything. My article on buying European train tickets in advance is still pretty much up to date and it has links to the various national train companies.

It will be cheapest if you lock in your dates and buy all of your train tickets as early as possible, which will be around 3 months out in most cases. The tickets start off really cheap and go up in price as more seats are sold on each train, so earlier is always better. There are no rail passes that would be helpful on a trip like this, but that’s mostly because the tickets will be pretty cheap already, especially the ones within Italy.

Trains in Europe are really fun and shockingly easy once you get started. All the important signs will be in English as well as a local language. For most of them you can literally walk aboard just before it leaves and you are fine as long as you have a reserved seat, but the Eurostar works more like a flight with security and such so you have to be checked in at least 30 minutes in advance. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I won’t have time to update that other older article about trains vs planes vs buses, partly because these days there is a clear choice depending on which two cities you are going between. There are places in eastern Europe where there are advantages to each mode, but for the cities you’ll be doing the train is going to be the fastest, by far the most enjoyable, and probably the cheapest as well, at least once you factor in airport transportation costs. It’s going to be a great trip! -Roger

Thank you SO much for all of your help. Your in-depth website is an amazing resource! I get so lost in it and spend hours scouring your resources and links – it has everything anyone could need! And, the fact that you are also personally answering comments and offering personalized advice is mind blowing! Thank you for all that you do to inform us!

If you could suggest on a 14-15 day iterinary covering Athens, rome Milan paris London and Finland from New Delhi / Mumbai.

If you have 14 to 15 days I’d suggest choosing about 5 cities in total to visit. So your list should work out fairly well, although it depends on how much of Finland you’d hope to see. I’m guessing you must have a specific reason for wanting to go there? Finland normally isn’t very popular and honestly there isn’t much to see. Helsinki is, in my opinion, the least interesting of the Nordic capitals, although it’s pleasant enough and the country has some nice forests. If you are visiting relatives or something, that requires different planning of course.

It might be easiest to fly from Mumbai to London and then use that as a base. You could spend a few nights there and then fly to Helsinki and back after that or Helsinki to Paris for a few days. After Paris you could fly to Milan or Rome and then take a train to the other and then fly to Athens to finish your trip.

Milan actually isn’t a popular tourist city. It’s the home of most of Italy’s big banks and fashion brands, but neither of those are accessible to most tourists. Italy has amazing fashion shopping in Rome as well as Florence. Venice is also more popular. I hope this helps and I’m happy to help more if you have questions. -Roger

Comment* Planning first trip to Europe Want to do tour of England, Scotland, Wales and then to Paris for sites and Monet Gardens. Might take train to Brussels and Bruge. Then to Switzerland and home. Any suggestions what tour group to contact. Want slower pace trip…at least 3 weeks. Thank you.

I enjoy helping people plan independent trips, and I honestly don’t know much about booking all-inclusive tours like you are after. I’d imagine you’d have to do at least a few different tours to cover all the places you have in mind. The one outfit that I am familiar with is Rick Steves, who I am a huge fan of for his Europe travel guides and I know he has a big tour organization. I’d start with them and see if they have anything that fits what you are looking for. Best of luck. -Roger

The total distance between those London and Paris is 453 km and you’ll need 8-9 hours to cover this road trip. One important thing that you must know is that you won’t get a continuous road track till Paris, moreover you’ll have to go for a ferry. You can drive till Brighton from London and then you’ll have to catch a ferry to reach the bordering town of France, Dieppe.

3 week itinerary London Paris Italy

In order to reach Brighton, you’ll have to take the A23 route, from south of Trafalgar Square and head towards Brighton. A23 road is a major road in the United Kingdom between London and Brighton, East Sussex, England. The distance between those cities is 88 km and you can cover it within 1 and 1/2 hour drive.

Since you are already in London, I am not focusing on places to see within the city, as I suppose you would have already explored the must-see places by now. Hence, we can focus on French and Italian lands. Keep driving towards the Dyke Road. From the port of Brighton, now you’ll have to catch the Transmanche Ferry for Dieppe. The best part about this ferry ride is that you can carry your car over the English Channel. It will take you 4 hours to reach and a ticket per head is 15 pounds.

After your short drive from London, you’ll get a break of 4 hours. So enjoy the voyage, relax, shop, eat and enjoy the view of blue waters before you kick start your  3-week itinerary – London Paris Italy.

The coastal city of Dieppe is the nearest beach to Paris. You can stop for a while and explore the city’s touristy attractions, including Estran Cité de la Mer: The Marine Museum, displaying replicas of ships and maritime history of this city. It would cost you €3 and it’s open till 6:30 p.m. daily. Château-Musée de Dieppe or the Castle Museum is another attraction, which exhibits fine art pieces and beautiful sculptures. It’s open daily till 6 p.m. and would cost you €5.

It is popularly known as the ‘spa town ‘. If time permits, do check-out the 19th century Church of St. Eloi, the 17th century Carmelite convent, a feudal motte, the château de la Minière etc. You can either chose to dine at Dieppe or you can prefer try out any of the local restaurants. The nearby attractions, including Gerberoy and Lyons-la-Foret are also worth-seeing. These countrysides are 24 km away from this suburb. You can save these beautiful off beaten places for your return journey.

paris 3 week itinerary london paris italy

Paris cannot be covered in 2 days. The city has so much to offer that often tourists plan out a 2-week trip to explore this city. However, we can focus on the must-visit places of Paris and can save the off beaten places for our return journey.

Things you should do soon after reaching Paris –

  • Apart from driving in your car, be prepared to cover long distances on foot, particularly at prominent boulevards and galleries.
  • The first thing you should do is visit the tourist office on the Champs-Élysées; from where you can fetch information about the various landmarks, leaflets for on-going events
  • You should also purchase a Carte-Musée-Monument (Museum & Monument Pass) for free entry into the major attractions of the city.

1. Paris, Texas

Paris, Texas

Often referred to as the “second biggest Paris in the world,” this quaint little town in Lamar County is located in northeast Texas, along the western edge of the Piney Woods and northeast of the  Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex .

Paris may have the Eiffel Tower, but Paris, Texas boast a 65-foot replica , situated at the site of the Love Civic Center, with a giant red cowboy hat crowning its tip. In addition to its historic downtown, Paris has many beautiful 19th-century to mid-20th-century houses. A noteworthy, annual event to catch is the “Hamfest,” which draws ham radio operators to Paris in droves the second Saturday of each October.

2. Italy, Texas

Touted as “The Biggest Little Town in Texas,” Italy is located in Ellis County, 15 miles south of Waxahachie and 20 miles north of Hillsboro.

Settlers founded Italy, Texas, in 1879, and began farming the fertile soil surrounding the community. Their crops included cotton, sweet potatoes, wheat, and corn. When the railroad came to town in 1890, Italy became a market center, and its population grew until the Great Depression. Italy claims Dale Evans, wife of beloved singing cowboy Roy Rogers, among its notable former residents.

You’ll find small town charm with all comforts of home in this Lone Star community.

3. Edinburg, Texas

Edinburg Texas

Founded on October 10, 1908, Edinburg, Texas, is located in Hidalgo County in the Rio Grande Valley and serves as the county seat. “Edinburg lies at the epicenter of one of the most dynamic regions in North America,” shares its website , “a region that is keeping pace with the speed of change.”

With a strong sense of community pride found among its residents, the town boasts excellent quality of life, top-notch educational facilities, and a pro-business attitude. Edinburg “has been recognized as an All-America City three times by the National Civic League, placing it among a handful of outstanding communities in the nation.”

Having met a few fine folks from this area, this Hill Country writer can vouch that Edinburg is home to big-hearted Texans with no shortage of Lone Star hospitality.

4.  London, Texas

London Texas

Situated in Kimble County, London, Texas, is one for the bucket list. The community is a small town gem, to say the least, as the population is only around 180. The town square was designated as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1971.

Another interesting piece of history associated with this Texas town is a mysterious artifact called the “London Hammer,” a hammer made of iron and wood that was discovered encased in rock.  Some researchers regard the hammer as an out-place-artifact. They ask how a man-made tool could be contained within a formation of rock alleged to be 400 million-years-old.

Max Hahn and his wife found the artifact in the 1930s while taking a walk along the Red Creek near London. At the time, they thought it was only a strange piece of rock with a bit of wood embedded in it. The couple carried it home with them. It wasn’t until 10 years later, when their son Max broke the object open, that they discovered the hammer hidden inside the rock.

5. Athens, Texas

Athens, Texas, found in Henderson County, is often referred to as the “Black-Eyed Pea Capital of the World.”

“Athens has the charm of a small southern town,” according to its website , “while still retaining many of the qualities of a larger city.” Visitors will find Athens a jewel of a town to explore for the whole family, from its great outdoors, to downtown shopping among art galleries and a historical museum. This Texas town is rich in heritage and ready to roll out the red carpet for visitors.

<ul> <li><strong>Average home value: </strong>$494,456</li> <li><strong>Livability score (out of 100):</strong> 60</li> <li><strong>Weather woes:</strong> Year-round heavy rains and high humidity</li> </ul>

Hawaii is one of the most popular travel destinations, as well as one that's becoming too expensive.

Aida Mollenkamp, travel planner and founder of Salt & Wind Travel , noted that many of her agency's clients are starting to struggle with Hawaii's costs.

"The major issue is that hotel rates, meals and tours are more expensive than before. Historically, our clients have been between a boutique four-star and five-star traveler, but have largely had to go down a class in hotels to meet their budget," said Mollenkamp. "We now suggest they budget at least $800 per day for lodging, transport, activities and food for a trip for 2 (but again, that will rarely cover a five-star these days)."

In some places, the time of year impacts your trip's costs. But this hasn't been the case with Hawaii.

"We aren't seeing as much seasonality in the hotel rates as we did pre-COVID," said Mollenkamp. "Inflation and cost of living have hit Hawai'i hard the last few years, so the companies pass it through to make sure they can still pay competitive wages. Five-star hotels that used to cost around $500 per night are now starting at $800 per night in shoulder season."

Specific places, like Maui, are even more expensive.

"Here, a week-long stay for a couple can reach approximately $4,200, which applies if you restrict your impulsive spending on dining, local activities, etc.," said Justin Albertynas, expert traveler and CEO of travel-tech startup Ratepunk . "The reason behind it being an expensive destination can be summarized in one sentence: Many want to go there, but there are few places to stay."

Italy isn't much different from Hawaii in terms of how travel costs.

"Italy is a funny scenario because you can still do a more affordable trip if you go off the beaten path to say, Sicily or the Alps. However, many of our clients want at least part of their trip to hit a major tourism spot, be it Florence or the Amalfi Coast," said Mollenkamp.

"The destinations have much longer high seasons than they used to -- now extending from early May through October -- and hotel rates reflect that," said Mollenkamp. "I'd say, on average, we've seen hotels 2x in price in these areas compared to their pre-COVID rates."

Other areas that have increased in price, Mollenkamp said. That includes private drivers, alternative lodgings like Airbnb and tours.

<p>With a million-dollar budget, you can stay at the best hotels and resorts in the world boasting unbelievable amenities, or even stay on your own private island. Here are some of the most luxurious accommodations you can find.</p>

The Maldives

The Maldives has long been a luxury destination, one that's already at the high end of many travelers' budgets. But it's also become more expensive.

"Prices for a week-long stay in [an iconic overwater] villa can easily stretch into the thousands, influenced by factors such as the level of luxury, resort amenities, and seasonality," said Albertynas. "While experienced travelers might occasionally snag hotel deals, dining costs, local activities, flights, and internal transfers can drastically inflate the overall expense of a vacation here."

Flight prices alone can put the Maldives out of reach. You can expect to spend anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 on a single ticket. Multiply that by the number of people traveling with you and you're already looking at a pricey vacation -- without factoring in anything once you're there.

Property expenses totaled £49.5 million ($56.5 million) for the year. The next largest expense was staff payroll, which cost £24.1 million ($27.5 million). King Charles already has signaled he intends to cut staffing.</p>

Paris and London

While many parts of France and the U.K. are still affordable, top destinations like Paris and London are becoming less so for the typical middle-class family.

"Accommodation costs in central areas of these cities have surged, making it challenging for budget-conscious travelers to find affordable lodging options," said Stephanie Webb, travel expert and Tripshepherd travel guide. "Additionally, dining out and admission fees for attractions have also seen considerable price hikes, contributing to the overall affordability challenge."

Take Paris, for example.

"In Paris, the average cost of a hotel room in central areas can exceed $200 per night, with luxury accommodations reaching several hundred dollars or more," said Webb. "Dining at renowned restaurants or visiting popular attractions like the Louvre Museum can also come with hefty price tags."

In London, accommodations, food, and admission fees have also become increasingly expensive.

Ways To Make These Destinations More Affordable

Just because these places are expensive, it doesn't mean you can't still go. You'll need to plan accordingly, though. Here are a few tips to make your trip happen:

  • Start saving up ahead of time. Put aside a little extra money into a high-yield savings account each month until you have enough for the entire trip.
  • Create a travel budget. No matter where you're going, it's important to have a realistic budget that covers things like flights, accommodations, food, entertainment, souvenirs, and attractions.
  • Have flexibility in your schedule. If possible, go during the shoulder season or off-season. It might not always help, but it can often get you lower prices on hotels, flights, and the like.
  • Bundle your trip. Getting a vacation bundle that includes things like flights, accommodations, and rental vehicles or events could save you money overall.
  • Use a rewards card. Some credit cards offer rewards or bonuses in the form of miles or other travel perks. Just be sure to pay off your card every month before interest hits.
