I am posting my itinerary of my trip this year with a friend. I shared the entire itinerary to give you a sense of how my friend and I will be traveling to England so no need to comment on the Italy portion unless you would like to.
Trip: England & Italy
Date: May 3-June 17, 2010
Departure: May 3, 2010 8:45pm
Arrival in Birmingham, England: May 4, 2010 6:30am
Train to Nottingham
Nottingham: 4-5 days (May 4-8/9)
London: 4 days (May 9-13)
London to France (travel south to Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Italian Riviera including Genoa). We were thinking of spending 1-2 days in these places.
Options: (May 13 or 14, 2010) Fly London to Nice with Easyjet OR another airline that is cheaper. We looked at Easyjet would cost us 145 pounds each one-way!
thetrainline.com – I found this site for trains within England. Is this a good site or is there another useful site?
Genoa to Cinque Terre (4 days)
Rome (5 days)
Fondi (2-3 days)
Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast & Island of Ischia & Capri (total of 10-12 days). We will be based in Sorrento staying at a friend’s house – a local that I met last year. : )
Amantea (5 -7 days)
I appreciate any positive or helpful feedback that you may have.
