10 week trip to Europe!

Jump to last reply

For all you experienced European travelers out there, we're in need of some advise!

Two mates and myself are really keen to go to Europe for about 10 weeks next year as we'll finally be finished up with uni. We're all young and healthy and we're looking to do the trip relatively cheaply while still having an awesome time. At this rate, we'll probably get a 2-3 month continuous europass so that we can keep our options open. How much should we expecting to spend? We'll be staying in hostels most of the time, taking advantage of night trains wherever possible!

So just of the top of our heads, we've come up with a super quick itinerary with very rough time estimates.

London (5 days)
Paris (5 days)

(maybe Luxembourg 3 days?)
Brussels (3 days)
Brugge (3 days)
(maybe The Hague?)
Amsterdam (3 days)

Berlin (4 days)
Heidelburg (2 days)
Neuschwanstein (1 day) mainly to see the castle
Munich (3 days)

Prague (4 days)
Vienna (3 days)
Bratislava (3 days)
Budapest (3 days)
(maybe Bled)

and then starting in Venice, we'd like to spend just over two weeks in Italy, seeing Naples, Positano, Rome, Florence, Pisa and hopefully Como. We're thinking of hiring a car through italy, just to give us even more freedom.

and then finally travel around through Monaco and Nice to Barcelona where we can spend 3-4 days before heading out (probably back to London then back to Aus)

Does it sound feasible? What changes could you recommend? I've got a feeling that it might be a bit much... Any guidance would be greatly appreciated :) Cheers!

Also, is Summer really that bad for travelling to Europe? At the moment we're looking at starting somewhere between July 1st and mid-August and earlier would probably be more convenient.

Thanks in advance!!!

p.s. if you by chance can recommend a completely different path to follow please shout out
