critique my itineraries

Hi all – I’ve posted two itineraries in the eurotrips section, and I’d love some critique/comments, but trips scroll down so fast there I’m not sure anyone even notices some of them. Both of these are dream itineraries, although I’m hoping I might be able to do one or the other during summer 2010. So far I’ve left the time spent in places blank, as some places will warrant a lot of time and others will just be stops along a day’s train ride. Comments on how long you think it’ll take to complete either itinerary are also appreciated.

Eastern Europe, December 2008-January 2009

Hi everyone! I’m planning a solo backpacking trip (my first!) for this December/January. I got a great deal on a flight to Poland so that’s my starting point. I need some pointers on where to go/avoid and also some ideas on how over-crowded my current itinerary is looking. Help?

The dates in question are 10 December 2008 – 25 January 2009 (42 days). I need to be back in Aberdeen, Scotland for the 26th as I have classes, so I need to end up somewhere on the 25th with direct air connections to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Right now I have:

10/12 thru 11/12 – Wroclaw, Poland

Draft Itinerary

Hi everyone!

I’ve been racking my brain trying to sort out a travel itinerary for Europe next year for myself and friends. I’ve come up with this:

Valencia (Benicassim Festival) – 5 nights

Zurich (via overnight train) – 2 nights outwith transfer

Ljubljana (via overnight train) – 3 nights outwith transfer

Budapest (via overnight train) – 3 nights outwith transfer

Prague – 3 nights

Munich – 4 nights

Stuttgart – 3 nights

Paris – 4 nights

Amsterdam – 4nights

Can you please review my itinerary and/or give me transportation tips?

My friend and I are going to Europe for 14 days and we had the following itinerary in mind. Please let me know what you think. I know it might seem a bit rushed but we would love to squeeze this all in. Also Euro Rail seems a touch expensive but I am wondering if it is our best bet. We are definitely budget-minded but time is a bigger concern as we want to do as much justice as possible to each place.

Itinerary Help needed - France, Italy 14 days


I’m planning my first backpacker trip to Europe, and need advice on my itinerary. I have roughly 14 days to spend in France and Italy (followed by a week or so in the UK, then back to Paris for flight home).

I would prefer to visit Paris at the end of the week, say a Wednesday to a Sunday, instead of being there over a weekend, and monday, tuesday, since a lot of the must-see museums are closed on either a monday or a tuesday.

The other requirement is that I have to be in Rome over a weekend; a friend is joining me from London, and that’s only possible over a weekend.

France, Spain, Italy Itinerary help please!

Hi everyone! My friends and I are attempting to draft up an itinerary for traveling in Western Europe, and I was hoping you all could give me your opinion on it. Keep in mind that this is a very, very rough itinerary!
We are studying in England beforehand, so we would take the Eurostar from London to Paris. The trip would be from August 16th-September 9th, with us finally heading back home from Rome.

France (August 16th-24th) – Paris, Nice, Cannes, Bourdeaux, Toulouse

Spain (August 25th-31st) – Barcelona, Madrid…anywhere else?

Italy (September 1st-9th)

Itinerary questions - Switzerland and Greece

I will be in Switzerland for 4.5 days this summer, traveling from Salzburg into Italy. What are the places I should definitely hit up? What would your ideal itinerary be? Right now I’m thinking Zurich – Lucerne – Lugano, but I’ve never been, so I welcome thoughts.

I will be in Greece for 4.5 days as well (flying in and out of Athens), and I’ve been told that’s a long time to spend just in Athens. So right now I’m thinking 1 day in Athens, 1 daytrip to Delphi, and then 2 days of island time. What islands are easy to get to from Athens? Are there other areas I should be checking out?
