8 week Europe Itinerary- advice/suggestions please!

Jump to last reply

My sister and I (21 & 23) are planning an 8 week trip to Europe in May/June 2013. Having been on a very brief guided-tour for 3 weeks a few years ago, we are hoping to plan a trip that isn’t as rushed. Although we are more than happy to spend our days walking around seeing as much as we can (main attractions, food & wine, nightlife and SOME museums), we would also like to have the time to just sit, relax and soak up the atmosphere. Our first draft itinerary is…

London - 14 nights
Berlin- 3 nights
Prague- 3 nights
Vienna - 3 nights
Venice- 3 nights
Levanto- 4 nights
Rome- 6 nights
Santorini- 3 nights
Ios- 2 nights
Athens- 2 nights
Cappadocia- 3 nights
Istanbul- 4 nights

What do you think?

We were also thinking of breaking up the 24hr flight from Australia by stopping over somewhere for a night on the way there and back, maybe Thailand and Hong Kong. Would it be feasible to get a hotel for a night, spend a day in these cities and then jump on a plane and continue our flight?

Any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated!
