2 Week European Itinerary

Jump to last reply

New to the forum. My girlfriend and I are trying to plan out a European trip. We got a suggestion from one of her co-workers who recently went on a tour with a company called GoAhead, where they did a Grand Tour of Europe in 16 days. They visited London, Paris, Amsterdam, Heidelberg, Lucerne, Como, Venice, and Rome.

I've read several different posts here, both old (as far back as 2007) and new (as recent as this week) suggesting that a self-planned trip is far better than going with a tour group. I've been leaning towards the self-planned trip b/c I learned that we would be traveling 7 hours by bus to go from one place to another (I forgot the location, I think it's Como to Venice)

So my question to you guys is this: we want to do at least 2 weeks (at least the same 16 day time frame), our top countries/cities are London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Venice and Florence. It's unrealistic to say we can do 3-4 countries in 16 days, let alone visit these cities with so much history. So I'm posing the question to you guys, what would be an ideal 16-day itinerary for 2 people who have never visited Europe?
