EUROPE IN 35 DAYS?!

Jump to last reply

My bf and I are planning a trip to Europe. We arrive in London on October 2nd shortly after lunch. Our flight from London departs back to Canada on November 7th.

At first I tried to come up with an itinerary to see London and get a good feel for most of France and Italy. Just taking our time through.
Included some places like this:
London
Paris
Dijon (Cote d' Or)
Nice (Cote d' Azur)
Venice
La Spezia (Cinque Terre)
Florence
Siena (Tuscany)
Rome
Pompei
Positano

However, we're young and this is our chance to take 1 month to experience as much as we can and I am fully aware that you cannot "get a feel" for a country without spending alot of time there, but in the future we can always take smaller 1-2 week trip to places we'd REALLY like to spend more time in. I feel like in 35 days, there is alot more that we can accomplish than just London, France, and Italy? (I also had in mind, I'm not sure if we'd get the complete experience of the coastal Italy in October as much as in summer? Opinons?)

So I came up with a 2nd rough itinerary which looked like this:

*LONDON- 3
*PARIS- 4
*VENICE- 2
*LA SPEZIA (CINQUE TERRE)- 1
*FLORENCE- 4
*ROME- 5
*POMPEI- 1
MUNICH- 3
NURUMBERG- 1
BERLIN- 3
AMSTERDAM- 4
VIENNA- 2
LONDON- 1

Now it might be too much?

I am interested in seeing ANYTHING! Whatever works with our schedule. I'd like to go to Spain someday as well, but just geographically speaking, that seems like it would be a separate trip. Also, Switzerland isn't anywhere on there.. Greece is nearby Italy too.. I'm not sure how urgent it is to see places like Vienna but as I said, I don't know what is recommended to see or what would work with our schedule! If we're going to Germany, a stop at the Nurumberg racetrack is a must to accomodate the bf, hehe.

IF ANYBODY HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS OF WHERE TO GO/WHAT TO DO IN 35 DAYS BEGINNING AND ENDING IN LONDON, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! The places that are starred are what we HAVE to see. The rest is up in the air!

We are very adventurous. We are backpacking and trying really hard to stick to a tighter budget. We're open to ANYTHING. We want to see the major highlights of places but mostly interested in the culture, food, etc. of each place.
We want to see the world and have fun doing it!

Thanks! :)
