This the tentative plan that I’ve come up with. I realize that I’m being a little over ambitious. I need some advice as to what I can skip completely and also suggestions for places that I’ve missed out on.I want to include Rome and maybe even Venice but i can’t seem to work out how.Some help please!!!

Brussels
Amsterdam
Berlin
Prague
Vienna
Garmisch
Baden Baden (Black forest)
Interlaken
Barcelona- Ibiza-Valencia
Toulouse
Paris-Versailles
London

The trip is to be for about a month. I’m interested in sight-seeing, beaches and night-life. How many days does each of these places require?What other places would be en-route?Are any of the places that I’ve mentioned so similar that they can be skipped out? This trip is supposed to be in June. Are there any festivals that I should look out for?Can this trip be covered by train or are flights more time saving?

I am leaving from london with $4500 for 32 days
London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Baden-Baden, Interlaken, Milan, Barcelona, Paris, London

Why Vienna? I wouldn’t cut it because it’s like another destination in your list, but it’s the first place I’d cut if you don’t have a specific reason (there are good ones) to include it. Brussels, even though I’m a fan and it also doesn’t duplicate another destination, would be my second cut.

Train will actually be faster than flying for most of this, particularly since some of your destinations are off the beaten track of big cities. Any flight takes nearly 5 hours when you add getting to/from airports to check-in time and flight time. Also, you’ll probably have a dozen trains a day to choose from, but often only one reasonably priced flight which could easily be at a time that screws up the entire day.
