We are planning our first Europe trip from USA in March of 2012. Found some travel packages from TravelZoo, however, they aren't to the destinations that we'd want and we believe if we plan our vacation ourselves it will come out to be much cheaper.
Currently, we are looking at flight fare for two from NYC or IAD to Paris and back to NYC or IAD from Paris or Rome. Best we've found so far is 1400 round trip for both. We plan to fly into Paris, take bus/train to the hotel from the airport, stay couple of days, take train to rome and stay in switzerland, venice and florence for a day each.
- Is $1400 roundtrip for two people to Paris generally what people pay?
- How is the public transportation around Paris Airport, is it easy to find a bus/train that would take us to the main city where most hotels are?
