Does this itinerary make sense?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Europe in October and we would appreciate input on our itinerary. We scheduled a longer duration for Italy and plan to do day trips while there. Any thoughts on hostels or affordable hotels? We have yet to plan out the best transportation method while in Europe.

September 25 - Flight from US to London
September 29 - Leave London to Amsterdam
October 2 - Leave Amsterdam to Barcelona, Spain
October 8 - Leave Barcelona, Spain to France
October 14 - Leave France to Rome Italy
October 20 - Leave Rome, Italy to Venice, Italy
October 27 - Leave Milan, Italy to Athens, Greece
October 30 - Leave Athens, Greece to Dublin, Ireland
November 2 - Flight back to US

We will be graduating in August, and have some money saved so we plan to quit our jobs, go to Europe, and then move to another city when we return and look for work. With that said, our original thought was to go to Europe and not be bound to an itinerary, but it seemed obvious that the cheapest method is to buy ahead so that idea went out the window. We would appreciate any guidance, as we have not done anything like this and are going on a whim. Thank you!!
