First trip to Europe and England-6 weeks in summer 2013 - Budget advice

Jump to last reply

Hello all, I am planning a trip for next summer. The travelers will be myself and my 18 year old daughter. We will fly open-jaw from DFW to Amsterdam, and back from London to DFW. The plan, so far: 2 nights Amsterdam, 5 nights Germany (Rhein valley and Munich), 11 nights Italy (Venice, Rome/Naples, Florence, Cinque Terre), 12 nights France (7 are Paris, 2 are Provence, the rest tbd), 10 nights England (4 or 5 London, 3 Bath/Cotswolds, 2 Liverpool (we have to--daughter is a HUGE beatles fan).

Travel will be mostly by train, though I have considered renting a car for the Provence leg). We are budget travelers (but not hostel-budget), love art, architecture, and aniquities. We are also foodies, and love to experience the "real" culture of a place. I've already priced lodging (and reserved some), and believe I can keep that expense to $4000 or less. Also, I know railpasses (europe only) will be about $1500. Unknowns: airfare, other transportation costs, food (trying to choose lodging that includes breakfast, not opposed to preparing some of our own meals, esp in paris, and will have some picnics and take-away meals), activities/admissions.

I would appreciate any insight you can offer to help me pin down good estimates of these budget components.
