Hello again everyone! Last week I posted about recommendations on a trip we were planning to southern Europe and got some great advice (https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/general-europe/barcelona-to-rome-first-timers-in-europe). Right before we booked our flights (thankfully!), we found out about a family trip in the works to Lisbon, Portugal in May 2020. With that being said, I feel like our September 2019 trip should be adjusted a bit. We were originally going to do Barcelona, Florence and Rome, but we will likely cut Barcelona and add it to the Lisbon trip in 2020. Now the question is, where to go?
After doing research on Rome, I think it's still a top destination. Other cities on our list are London and maybe Brussels. Does anyone have a good route for 11 days between London and Rome? Should we focus more north (might be chilly, end of september/early october)? As in my previous post, I would really like to see more than 1 country as I doubt we will have the opportunity to frequent Europe. Thanks for any advice!
