2-3 week Europe itinerary - help!

Jump to last reply

Hi travel friends,

My husband and I are finally planning a trip to Europe. Neither of us has ever been. We are looking at 2-3 weeks in April /May. Scotland is very high on our list. I was just hoping you can help shape our itinerary and provide general tips for planning. We are big fans of beer, hiking /nature, and are seeking a good mix of picturesque smaller towns and cities.

Was thinking about Scotland (Edinburgh, Oban with day trips to Glencoe and other highland areas), Germany (Munich, Bavaria), and northern Italy (Genoa, Portofino, and suggestions for a northern lake town?).

I have also considered Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, or Austria instead of Italy. Thoughts? Too ambitious for 16-21 days? Other suggestions? If I have to make a shorter trip, what should I prioritize? As a first time traveler, any help is greatly appreciated!
