    Hi,

    Can some one recommend some places to spend the above days in the respective country?
    I am planning to start my trip from Gothenburg, sweden on Nov 30 to Amsterdam by Air.

    I will stay in amsterdam for 3 days(30,1,2,3)

    On 3rd 12:20 – 13:40, Eindhoven to Prague by Air (Wizz Air…around 18 euro)(3,4,5)

    On 5th, I would like to take night train from Prague to Switzerland (6,7,8,)

    9th in Milan
    10 and 11 in Venice
    12 Rome, vatican city.

    12, night (22:20 -23:55) by wizz air (around 23 euro) to Budapest (13,14)

    15th early morning, at (6:15 – 8:25) Budapest to Gothenburg (Wizz air around 22 euro)

    If the above plan is fine, please help me in selecting the cities to travel during those dates.

    Instead of old museums, I prefer mainly sceneries.
    Thank youuuuuuuuuu…..

    Try posting questions about hostels in our “hostels” forum. You might not get too much traffic here.

    Your trip is pretty rushed. Travel time (even flying can kill a day, although your late night flight is a good option) will cut into the time you have in these places. I’d skip Milan in favor of an additional day in Rome and I’d spend some time working out the travel logistics of getting to/from Interlaken — it’s not easy. Further, the Hurry-up-and=wait nature of flying makes it very tiring. Several flights in a short time can be exhausting.

    Removed Milan from the trip.
    But, I am not sure, where to travel in these countries….how to spend the allocated time for these countries.

    Please let me know, the cities which I can cover during this period and how about the accommodation in that place.

    Thank you for your help.

    Just using some standard rules of thumb for travel applied to 14 days.
    1. An average of 3 days per city, so choose 5
    2. An average of 1 flight per week in addition to arrival and darture, so pick a smaller area you can cover with 2 flights in addition to those to/from Gothenburg.
    3. An average of 1 country per week

    My recommendation would be…
    Since you’re interested in scenery, think about Switzerland and Italy. Spend another day in Interlaken and take a scenic train to Italy (you might end up with an overnight in Milan since that’s the transportation hub). Add some time in Cinque Terre for the scenery and maybe a day or two in Florence. Plan at least 3 days in and around Rome.
