Best Luggage for Cobblestone/Stairs

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Europe (London, Paris, Loire Valley, Saintes, Bordeaux, Arcachon, Biarritz, Pamplona, Barcelona, and Madrid) for 15 days with a group from my school. My teacher has told us that we will be dragging our luggage across many long cobblestone streets and up several flights of stairs when we get to the hotels (we are not staying at American hotel chains like Hilton or Marriott if that helps). My question is: what is your recommendation for relatively lightweight luggage that will withstand cobblestone streets, train rides, and planes? I have read that Eagle Creek is a good brand, but it is a little out of my price range. I would be willing to spend up to around 300 USD. Would you recommend Travelpro or Samsonite and should I get hardside or softside or more of a rolling duffel type? Also, my teacher told us to take a larger bag (28-30 in) so we can have room to bring back souvenirs and things.

I have been looking at these but I am not sure if they would be good for this type of travel:

Thank you very much! Any help or tidbits you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
