Fine tuning 2 months trip in Europe from Paris to Istanbul!!

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a backpacking trip to Europe with 3 of my other girl friends in July this year.(we are all females so we are very concerned about safety) We need help in fine tuning it since it is our first time backpacking! Hope if anyone of you would be so kind to advise us! Not sure if it will be too rushed, or could there be a better way of allocating our time so feel free to share your opinions with us here! As first timers in Europe, we wish to see a macro view of Europe, that's why we are opting for city to city kind of way of traveling!

OUR BUDGET IS 60 EUROS a day( Accommodation is around E18/day)
Fly in to Paris 3 nights
fly to Amsterdam 3 nights
fly to London + day trip to Bath + day trip to Cambridge 4 nights
fly to Rome 4 nights
Train to Florence+ day trip to Siena and/or Pisa 3 nights
Train to Venice + day trip to Murano 3 nights (Feel like visiting Lake Como on the way i.e. Venice>Lake como> swiss but will it be too rushed? Worth it?)
Train to Swiss 3 nights (thinking of Berina express from Tirano>Chur but it looks very time consuming if I were to go Lake Como)(Any recommendations where to stay in swiss/Lake como?)
Train to Munich + day trip to Nuremberg(maybe) 4 nights
Train to Salzburg + day trip to Hallstatt 3days (Or shd I stay in Hallstatt?)
Train to Vienna 3 nights
Train to Prague 3 nights
Fly to Stockholm for farm stay 14 days ( how many days shd we allocate after farm stay to visit the basic must-visits?)
Fly to Belgrade 3 nights (If we are extending our stay in Stockholm then we must shorten our stay here)
Sleeper Train to Sofia 3 nights (If we are extending our stay in Stockholm then we must shorten our stay here)
Sleeper Train to Istanbul- staying for 4 months

Looking forward to recommendations/ advice on our mini trip! It could directed to the question I posted, or any advice for other day trips is also welcome!! We are so excited!!! Will really really appreciate any of your advice!:)

P.s 2 of us are planning to visit Budapest AND Cyrus AND GREECE AND hopefully Croatia AND EGYPT during our 4 months. Most probably 3-4 days trip to each place since we are schooling.
Opps, I know we may be a bit too ambitious in the last part to visit so many countries during our stay in Turkey! But do u guys think think otherwise?
