Best of Europe in 1 Month--July

Jump to last reply

Hi! This is my first post, so I hope it is okay.

My fiance and I are getting married in May 2012 and have to wait to take our honeymoon until July because I work in the schools. That said, we have planned it so that we will have one full month off from work and would really like to spend that month exploring Europe. I have only been to Ireland (which is amazing and I loved it!) and my fiance has been all over but mostly when he was a young child, so he is interested in seeing it all again as an adult. I realize that July might not be the best time to go to Europe due to weather and crowds...but it's the only time we've got and I would like to seize this wonderful opportunity.

We would really like to go to the following places: Italy, Spain, France and Belgium. It should work out so that we have a week or so in each country (with Belgium having the least amount of time because we just want to go to Brussels and Amsterdam). What would anyone suggest as a good way to begin planning our itinerary? Any suggestions of hotels, restaurants, sights, etc. would also be welcome. We are definitely on a budget but it is our honeymoon, so we want to stay in some decent places so we are willing to pay a little extra to not be in a hostel.

I was curious about whether or not it would be better (in terms of crowds/weather) to start in the south and work our way North or vice versa.

I would be so appreciative of any feedback anyone could offer. Thanks in advance!
