Backpacking. through europe

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I are going backpacking through europe this spring and I'm a little worried about our budget and our time in each city. We will be there for 67 days of which 4 are considered travel days. Our budget is $13000-$15000 USD for everything except for travel. All train tickets, plane tickets have been paid for and reserved. Also take into consideration that the euro and USD are almost neck in neck. Which is the best exchange rate in years!
We plan on small breakfasts and lunch, tasting local street foods for snacks in between meals occasionally , and a good dinner most evenings. We will stay in hostels most of the time. But in places where we stay for 4 days and longer, I've found apartments on airbnb to be cheaper, and much nicer (especially in places like Paris).

Our itinerary is as follows:
Stay
Milan arrive. 2 days
Annecy Fr. 2 days
Nice Fr. 2 days
Barcelona. 4 days
Paris. 6 days
Bayuex Fr. 1 day
Brussels. 2 days
Amsterdam. 2 days
Berlin. 4 days
Prague. 4 days
Karlovy Vary. 2 days
Munich. 2 days
Füssen. 2 days
Salzburg. 2 days
Hallstatt. 1 day
Vienna. 3 days
Venice. 3 days
Florence. 5 days
Rome. 5 days
Naples. 1 day
Sorrento. 3 days
Tropea. 4 days
Final travel day, fly home the next day


Any thoughts????
