Rome may be too big to see in only 48 hours, though when you try to squeeze it all in you're bound to learn a few things along the way.
Our first taste of Italy was a brief two day stay in Florence, where we were lucky enough to rent our own apartment and do quite a bit spending just under $200.
France was the second stop in this journey, and we made sure to explore as much as we could within the five days we got to spend there.
Also apologies in advance, this is a long one.
London was our first stop in our self-guided European tour and I couldn't imagine a better place for our journey to begin. Here's what we saw, where we stayed, ate, and what I figured out from all of it.
While we will only be able to spend two days in Florence, we're going to see as much of it as we can. Everything I've looked into so far seems to give this place an endless glow, and it might be just what we need to calm down from the craziness of London and Paris.
