With no prior travelling experience whatsoever, I intend to travel to Europe with my wife at the beginning of June from Saudi Arabia.

I plan to go to Italy, then to France and back. Trip will be of 20 days and I plan on visiting 2 cities in each country. What would be the ideal budget for staying, eating and sightseeing and I would be grateful if you people could suggest to me some great cities to travel to. Cheers!

You've listed Paris, Florence and Venice on your profile as favourite places so I assume you already know some cities to visit. Throw in Rome too and you have three good choices for Italy. How do you plan on getting from Italy to France? Are you flying into and out of the same Italian city? Do you intend to visit French cities near the Italian border or is that not a problem? You need to give more details before anyone can offer you any sensible suggestions.
