First Time Europe Itinerary 8 Weeks

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I posted a couple of weeks ago with an itinerary idea for my first trip to Europe. Since then, my time and budget have changed a bit, so I am expanding the trip to 8 weeks. The trip will be in May and June of next year. I really love the concept of slow travel, but I guess since I've never travelled in Europe before, it's hard to know if I'm taking it too fast or too slow, so I'd love some advice. A little about me: I'm a female who will be traveling solo, I'll be 20 at the time of this trip, I love culture, food, museums, history, and experiencing different lifestyles. Here's my work-in-progress itinerary:

Fly to Reykjavik (Icelandair stopover) - 2 nights
Stockholm - 5 nights
Athens - 3 nights
Naxos - 4 nights
Santorini - 3 nights
Rome - 6 nights
Venice - 4 nights
Bellagio - 2 nights
Lucerne - 2 nights
Grindelwald - 4 nights
Strasbourg - 2 nights
Paris - 6 nights
Loire Valley - 3 nights
London - 6 nights
Cotswolds - 3 nights
Bath - 2 nights
Fly home

Thoughts? This trip would contain 7 countries in 8 weeks, and I feel like that's a little fast, but I'm not sure. There are 4 countries with over 10 days each: Greece, Italy, France, and England. I'm also somehow managed to pick some of the most expensive countries in Europe, so budgeting will be a bit hard, but I'll plan it out well. Thanks in advance for any advice!
