Hi! I’m from Argentina and i’m planning a trip to Europe for next nov/dic-jan-feb. I’m already thinking and investigating about the itinerary, plane tickets and hostels.

My plan (that needs to be reevaluated a thousand times) is:

London 8d
Edinburgh 6d
Amsterdam 4d
Bruges 1d
Ghent 2d
Hamburg 2d
Berlin 7d
Prague 4d
Kracow 3d
Budapest 3d
Bratislava 2d
Vienna 2d
Salzburg 2d
Munich 3d
Venice 3d
Rome 5d
Florence 2d
Milan 1d
Zurich 3d
Marseille 2d
Barcelona 7d
Madrid 5d
Paris 7d
Frankfurt 2d

It’s my first time visiting Europe and I would like to travel arround as much as possible without going insane. I really enjoy long stays in places that I like.

Right now the plan is traveling alone, but a friend of mine may be joining me.
I need help with the itinerary, transports (my idea is traveling by train) and accomodation (hostels preferably)

Any other suggestion or recomendation is always welcome!

Thanks!
Muchas gracias!

This is a pretty good itinerary. You are spending lots of time in a lot of cities, but that’s a good thing! Leave yourself open to leaving a city early if you find yourself to be bored. There are a few cities I would cut time down in or skip totally (frankfurt, zurich, milan) but that’s just me.

As for hostels, don’t book anything in advance. The time of year you are travelling you will be fine and it will give you lots of flexibility.

Any specific questions?

You’ll probably want to take some day trips from the big cities where you are staying for several days. Check libraries, bookstore discount bins and on-line sources for a cheap or free copy (used or out of date will work fine for planning purposes) of “Europe by Eurail”. It details lots of interesting day trips from Continental Europe’s major cities. “Britain by Britrail” details dozens of day trips from London and Edinburgh.

Hey quite a long vacation you are having! It would be great if you go with some friend, solo trips are a little bore especially when it’s such a long one.
