Tour Italy, Central & Eastern Europe On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “Gondola With the Wind” can be seen on the web if you have a high speed internet connection. The movie begins in Italy with Rome, Pisa, Florence, and Venice. It then features Vienna (Austria), glorious Prague (Czech Republic), Poland (including Warsaw & Auschwitz), Ukraine, and Budapest (Hungary).

This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached. I still sell nothing.

Experience Sicily & Malta On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “Don Corleone’s Island” presents highlights of Sicily (Italy) and Malta, starring a “Godfather” movie shrine, the Mt Etna volcano, Greek Temple of Concord, fantastic Roman mosaics, a Norman mountain top castle, vivid Byzantine mosaics in a Catholic cathedral; then Malta’s landscape of 16th Century walls and forts, the scenic former Arab fortress of Mdina, and a tour of Malta’s Grand Harbor.

Good eurotrip route?

A couple of friends and I want to go on the cliché trip to Europe after graduate high school next summer. We’ll be a group of 4 girls, all 18 (one 17 until halfway through the trip, but I don’t think that should be too much of an issue) and we want to visit 8 cities (Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Nice, Paris, Amsterdam, and London) for 1 month and 1 week. We realize that’s not the largest amount of time, but we’re working with what we have. We’ve all visited Europe before with our families, study abroad programs, teen summer tours, or all of the above.

Italy / Switzerland - please advise

Hey y’all,

I’m graduating from LSU soon, and I’d really like to travel a bit before I start work. I’ve never been to Europe, but I’ve always been fascinated with Italy. I’d really appreciate any advice or recommendations that could help me create a more solid itinerary. I’m not into huge tourist attractions, and I don’t really care for the all the hustle and bustle that comes along with big cities, but obviously places like Rome and Venice still made my list.

I’ve done some research, and here’s what I’m thinking so far.

Help with my summer 2012 itinerary please!

Hi everyone! I am looking for some help with my itinerary for backpacking Europe this summer from the end of May through the beginning of July. My boyfriend and I are going for exactly six weeks and I am a little concerned that we are trying to fit too much into a too short amount of time. We are flying into London on May 29 and flying out of Milan on July 10, so those are set in stone.

May Euro trip help!!-- Rome, Barcelona, Figueres, Dublin, Galway!

Hey! So I’ve been dying to do a Euro Trip. I spent the majority of last winter scouring travel books, sites, and anything else I could get my hands on. I decided upon a handful of places to hit in May. I get off from college the 2nd of May and am willing to travel up until the 24th or so.

I was leaning more or so the 8th to the 23rd (dates can be flexible).

Would it be plausible to hit Rome, Italy first. Then fly to Barcelona to spend time there and take a day trip to Figueres to see Salvador Dalí`s museum. Then I would fly to Ireland to see friends from the summer who live there.

Travelling while studying abroad

Hi!

I’m studying abroad in Florence in the spring. Planning on going to Venice for Part of Carnevale. It starts on my 20th birthday which also happens to be my friends 21st. Also, I was thinking about going to Dublin for St. Patrick’s day then to London, Liverpool, and Edinburgh because the week after is our spring break. I was wondering if Dublin on St. Patrick’s day is worth it because hostels alone are like triple the price. Would it be better to reverse the plan and start in London and end in Dublin? Also looking for tips on hostels and booking with ryanair (ie.

Sept. 1 - Oct. 1 2012: 1 Month - England, France, Spain, Italy

My wife and I have never been to europe. We would be leaving from Maryland in the USA (flying out of BWI). We are planning a 1 month trip next year, and are tentatively planning for sept 1st through oct 1st. We are tentatively aiming for 5 days in England, 9 days in France, 5 days in Spain, and 11 days in Italy. We are budgeting $10k. We are in our late 20’s.

First and foremost i’d like a critique, or any feedback on our proposed itinerary below.
1. What am I missing?
2. What would you add?
3. What would you take away?
4. Are we trying to do too much?
