First time to Europe, only speak English

Jump to last reply

I really want to take a trip to Europe this fall. I just finished grad school and wanted to give it to myself as a present.

I'll be traveling alone and plan to stay 7-10 days. I don't want to spend a fortune on lodging and meals.

My goal is to see as much of history as possible in this short time frame.

I was considering Rome and Florence so I can see the vatican, sistine chapel, uffizi etc.

Another thing I'd like to see is England and Scotland. I'd also like to see Germany, France and Greece.

I know I need to narrow it down to two cities in such a short time frame.

What would be good for a first timer that only speaks English?
