Thank you again and again mamasqueak.
I'll go to the expo just in case super cheap.
but if not, i guess we can wait for a seat sale.
i don't think i can wait for the february expo though cause we plan to go first week of april.
(we need a booked flight when we apply for the visa right? since it's 3 months before departure, we need to apply on january?)
if we take the plane to rome, maybe we could stay a night in rome then?
what are the must see places, that we could do in an over night?
will follow the itinerary you gave me.
so that's florence, lucca and pisa, siena and cinque terre, then verona and venice. then fly to paris.
will skip san gimignano cause am sure i'll have to meet family since my grandmother will be with us.
around how much is renting a car in tuscany?
been trying to check online, but no cars are available for april. i guess too early pa kasi.
but just to give me an idea on our budget, around how much would that be?
would need a car to go from my aunt's place to florence, lucca and pisa, siena and to la spezia (to go to cinque terre)
so that's 3 days. hope it's not so expensive. but if ever, is it possible to commute there?
last question, (for now) how many hours and how much will it be to go from venice to paris by train?
i know it would be cheaper if we fly, but my husband and i might want to experience the sleeper train.
also, am so happy to share that I already found options for our accommodations in verona, venice and paris.
am really excited! really appreciate this thread and of course mama squeak and melody medley!
