Backpacking in Europe cost?

Jump to last reply

Hey there.. I know this is a really general question, but how much could I expect to spend on a two-month backpacking trip in Europe?

Here's the gist:

It will be my fiance (then-husband) & I in September & October 2013. We are considering getting a 5 country Eurail pass, with 10 days of travel time in two months. We were thinking France, Germany, Italy & Greece, and I'd really love to go to Croatia...perhaps Spain as well. I've checked pricing on Airbnb for places to stay, and I've seen places in Italy/Greece/Croatia for $20-60 a night. I'm a little worried on the cost of food though: if we budget $10,000 for the trip (although we also have a credit card with another $10,000 limit that we can use if needed), would that be enough for food as well?

Here's my pricing breakdown:

- $50/night for 60 nights: $3000
- Eurail passes for five countries: ~$1400
- Tickets to Europe, if we do open jaw tickets: $2800
- If instead of open jaw tickets, we did in & out of Dublin: $750 each, $1400.

This only leaves us with about $23 a person per day for food if we do open-jaw tickets... Perhaps I should make my budget a little higher?
