I've been to Spain but when I was about 6 months old so I don't remember it. But, I' went to Italy about 3 years ago and loved it! I'm not sure where your going in Italy but assuming your going to Rome some of my favorite things I did was obviously get some gelato, visit Vatican City, and overall just enjoy and soak in all the amazing architecture (we don't have much here in the US). I'm not sure how set in stone your trip is but if you get the chance the country side is absolutely stunning and there are some amazing pizza places all throughout! Not sure if this was any help but I hope you have a fun time and I'm going to France in February (school trip) so I might need some advice from you on what to expect!

Rome and Venice are very touristical city, there are hundreds of things to see in Rome, non that much in Venice. The only suggestion I can give you is to be careful of traps for tourists such as bars or restaurants in the main squares of the cities. A bottle of water or a coffee which normally cost 1 euro may cost even up to 3/4 euro there and you feel horrible when they just want to steal you money because you are a tourist. I know sometimes is not that easy, but try to buy things in supermarkets and try not to have lunch/dinner in the very centre of the city.

 

With Tripadvisor you can easily find the names of restaurants with a good ration of quality/price, and you absolutely have to try a "carbonara" in Rome. As for the pizza, it's better if you eat it in Rome rather than Venice.

Where in England will you be visiting? London? How many days will you be staying?

Basque Country! I only was on the French part of the region (except for San Sebastian), but I loved it, love that the mountains and the sea "meet". Brittany is another beautiful region (well, mostly its coasts), as well as Alsace and of course Provence and its little gorgeous villages :wub: but I'm not really helping because they are all far away from each other :lol:

There are so many things to see that it's impossible to choose
