    Guys, wake the fuck up, this is not a back pack thread.

    That is why I like dogs, more than most people.

    Sounds exhausting.

    Just go to Ibiza for the entire trip. Rent a car and set yourself up in a finca somewhere in the interior. You will leave thinking that 20 days wasn't enough.

    Hmmmm, I live on an island off the coast of San Diego, so not really feeling your suggestion. What else do you have for me?

    Gotcha.

    So, in that case, for your Italy part, I wouldn't stay in either Venice or Florence. Actually, I would cut out the Tuscany part out of it and base yourself a little further North. Stay in Verona and take day trips (via train) from there. Easy to hit Venice, Bologna, Parma plus Vicenza, Padova, Modena (whatever suits your interest). One full day/evening in Venice is sufficient. If you already have flights from Florence, head down there for a full day to end your Italian portion. The main thing is that pretty much any mid-sized city or small city in Italy, you will be stoked with. Some have better museums, some have better Cathedrals, some have cooler palaces, all have incredible dining experiences (just have to do your research). You are going at a good time of the year and won't have to deal with too many crowds but if things return to normal, it will still be a little annoying in Venice and Florence.

    Bordeaux: wouldn't be my first choice but admittedly, I have only spent the night there once in the past and also one night in St. Emilion. OK enough but nothing remarkable. I like the area around Toulouse better (Albi, Cordes sur Ciel, and all the small villages out there). Or San Sebastian is not much further. Good stuff to explore around there. La Rochelle?

    Having said that, even your proposed itinerary is fine and it would be difficult to go wrong with that. Enjoy.

    But, seriously, I am not a beach/nightclub person at all and Ibiza is still highly recommended. Or Menorca. Or North Cyprus.

    I was in Mallorca for a day at the end of my Mediterranean cruise on October and was very impressed. It would be quite a bit different than the other things you plan to visit and a nice way to end the trip relaxing and soaking up some sun.

    edit: but, yeah, if you live in San Diego it might lose some of its appeal. Still a cool spot. Perhaps consider Barcelona?
