Looking for some advice on our first trip to Europe in September 2019. As of now, plan is to do an open jaw trip between Barcelona and Rome over about 10-11 days. These are our top 2 cities we want to see. I am coming here to get advice on where to go in between. I understand that travel is time consuming, BUT I definitely don't see myself being able to go to Europe yearly so we want to take in as much as we can in the little time we have. We're young and will keep pushing no matter how tired we may be, lol!
Where would you go in between? Initial thoughts were stop over in Nice, Florence and then on to Rome. After looking at travel between Barcelona and Nice it looks like flying would be the easiest option so this has me thinking.. could we just fly somewhere else? Is Brussels way too far off the map? How do you like Zurich, Munich, Paris? Open to any recommendations. We enjoy culture, FOOD, wine, and beer. I really just want to immerse in the culture and see as much as we can.
