First timer

My friends and I recently graduated high school last year, and we have decided that it would be a lot of fun to do a europe backpacking trip this summer. We plan to leave during may and stay for around 21 days. Now we’ve all been throwing around cities like Paris, London, Munich, Zurich, ect. But I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of around 5-6 cities that would make for an excellent trip.

We plan on going out and experiencing the night life quite a lot, but we also want to see the historic side of things.

Please help me plan my first eurotrip :D

Hi everyone!

I’m planing my first Eurotrip and I’ve made a list of the places I wanna go to so far. I’ve got about 32 days for this trip starting in May. In June I start Law school so this might be my last chance at freedom for a long time.

I’m 23 years old, male, and adventurous. I love outdoor activities, partying, and also sightseeing (museums, landmarks, etc…)

Please help me narrow the list down to the top 10 or 11 places to go. I figure that’ll give me about 3 days per place, give or take. I’m traveling alone also. Anyway, here’s the list:


How many cities are ideal in a 2 month trip?

I’m starting my planning for Europe now and I don’t want to pick too many cities. What is an ideal amount of cities when traveling in the Spain-France-Germany-Italy area of Europe? Should I hit all the major cities? Do you know of any minor cities that would be better to visit in any of these places? How long should I spend in each city?

Also, you think a final detour to Russia would be worth it for this trip?
