Hello! My husband and I are planning a trip to Europe this fall. We only have about 2 weeks but are very open to suggestions - and need them! There are just too many amazing places to visit and we're feeling overwhelmed.
Last fall we did Rome (4 nights), Positano (3 nights), Capri (2 nights), Cortona (4 nights), and Florence (2 nights), and it was amazing, although we feel like we could have stayed in Florence for a couple more days. Something similar would be amazing, in that we'd love a mix of city sizes (big, small, medium), and even topography. We're aiming to hit about 3 or 4 places, but would prefer not to move around much more than that. Our favourite travel experiences often come when we're in one spot for a little bit longer so we can soak in the vibe of the city.
Some places we've already been, and therefore aren't at the top of our list for this trip include London, Paris, the south of France, Portugal, and Italy. We are really open to travelling throughout Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, etc. and would also love to explore some other parts of France and even the UK.
We love history, museums, general sightseeing, and activities like walking, hiking, biking, but most of all we are major food lovers (I'm actually a chef myself), so the culinary aspect is massive for us.
We have a medium-sized budget...we aren't swimming in money, but definitely don't like to cheap out when it comes to travel.
I know this is a terribly vague request, but if anyone has any suggestions we would be incredibly appreciative!
