Hi guys, I have only managed to plan till the 10th July and have no idea how to plan on. I have to get back to London by 24th July to catch the flight home.
Places I have in mind to visit:
1)Rome
2)Cinque Terra
3)Gimmewald
4)Prague
5) Vienna
6) Munich and towns along the Rhine
7)Amsterdam
8)Belgium

Advise please? Or anyone who will be along the way? I do not mind taking another flight from Barcerlona by Ryanair though. Thanks!

Cinque Terre is a must visit I think.

Depending on interest, Ithink Rome, Prague, Vienna and Amsterdam are rewarding in their own ways. What are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to interacting with the locals and have a sense of the local culture. And of course, the food and architecture is also what I am aftering. haha

In the 14 day’s left how about flying from Barcelona to Rome (Skyscanner) then rest by train.

Rome (3 Day’s) -> Cinque Terra (2) -> Switzerland, possibly Gimmewald (2) -> Munich (2) -> Prague (2) -> Amsterdam (2-3) -> London

Just a suggestion covering some of the places you want to see.

From Munich to Prague to Amsterdam. Will the journey between those cities take a very long time?

Munich to Prague about 6 Hours, direct.

Prague to Amsterdam can be long, but can be done on a night train.

Another option could be skipping Amsterdam and fly direct from Prague back to London, Lot’s of cheap flight’s on that route. And add the day’s for Amsterdam to Switzerland, Prague and Munich.

hi davy, I am seriously considering your advise. The only issue is, is there any way I can get from Amsterdam to London heathrow to catch my flight at 630pm on 24th July? I cant find Ryanair. Any cheap advises on that? Thanks!

The only budget airline that does this route is BMI.

The main problem is Heathrow is not the best budget airport in London, most low cost companies use Stansted, Luton or Gatwick.

you could fly into one of the lower cost airports earlier in the day and then take the train/tube/bus from there to Heathrow. It’d probably take up a better part of the day though, as you should probably arrive in London at least 5 hours before your flight at 6:30pm, to give you time to change airports and still be at Heathrow about 2hrs ahead of your flight.

One thing to note is that connection’s between London airport’s are usually rather expensive
