First Europe trip 21 days

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am heading to Europe this summer for 21 days! I will be going July 31st on an overnight flight from New York, and starting in London for 4 days, then heading to Paris for 5 days, then down to Nice for 6, and then Barcelona for 6 and flying back home from Barcelona on August 22nd 2013. My family has a house in nice so that part of where to stay is taken care of but I could really use some help on hotel options for London Paris and Barcelona. I am 24 years old and am traveling with my boyfriend only. We are on a budget so would prefer to spend 100 euros or less per night in the hotel. We are open to hostels but due to the longevity of the trip we are worried our bags might be slightly too large for hostel lockers, and were hoping for a little more privacy if possible. What we are really looking for in the hotel/hostel is safety, and location. Free wifi would be helpful as well.

I also am hoping for any tips for traveling or places I must see that aren't in the travel books. Delicious hidden restaurants, cute shops, anything. We are budgeting our hotels so that we can spend our money on seeing and doing everything we can. Also in Nice we would like to travel the French Riviera so any where we shouldn't miss would help us narrow down places to see. So far Nice, Cannes, and Antibe are on the list for the 6-7 days we have in south France.

Thanks so much any help I can get will be amazing!
