First time trip to Europe this summer

Jump to last reply

My 21 year-old daughter will be studying in Luxembourg for 6 weeks this summer, and I will join her at the end of June to travel for 2 weeks. While my daughter is in Lux, she will be taking weekend trips to all of the areas around Lux, such as Paris, Amsterdam, etc., therefore, I do not want to repeat visits to those areas. (I am considering going over a week before I am to meet her just to see Paris/London.)

I have never been to Europe before and am feeling overwhelmed by the choices of where to go. I don't want to use a tour company as I want a more quaint, customized vacation. I'm just not sure where to begin.

We would like a mixture of seeing historical buildings/sites, eating and staying at quaint places, seeing countryside, a bit of nightlife, and maybe a day or two at a beach.

Does anyone have suggestions as to an good intinerary for this? I will be meeting her in Lux and then we can fly or take a train from there.
Thank you very much!
