Backpacking: 3 countries, 1 month

Jump to last reply

Travel dates: Around May 28- June 4th (Sometime around the end of May is when we would leave from the US)

Destination countries: Spain, France, Italy

Destination cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Bordeaux, Paris, Milan, Florence, Venice, Rome

We are hoping to travel mainly by train, eat at local stops, stay in hostels in all cities except one or two (not sure which cities yet), and just suck in the culture.

I have never went backpacking and am looking to this site for opinions on whether this is a good choice for an itinerary. Our budget would be $3,000 a piece including airfare. Is that sufficient? Would this trip maybe be possible on a budget of $1,500 a piece not including airfare?

All opinions welcomed. Thanks!!
