1st trip to Europe

Jump to last reply

So my husband and I booked our first trip to Europe. We will be there for 15 days. We are flying in and out of Frankfurt because we have family in Bamberg and plan to stay with them for the first 5 nights while we are there. It is our hope that with their help, we can visit with them, take a few day trips, then continue on. However, after that, I've got nothing. I am literally overwhelmed. We both know that we would like to visit Paris and possibly Amsterdam. Italy is sounding pretty awesome as well. We plan to use the trains and buses while in Europe, so no car to rely on to get from place to place. I have no idea what our best option to get between countries is at this point so I could use some advice on that. Additionally, we'd like to spend around $150US per night at a hotel or apartment. We are in our mid 40's and would like to find a few centrally located places (not necessarily right in the heart of a major city) with good restaurants, good music, and more of a relaxing atmosphere. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Thanks!
