Help! First trip to Europe and we have no clue where to go!

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are traveling to Europe for the very first time. We live in the U.S and we are unsure as to which country in Europe would be most ideal for our first trip.

We would really love to go to London but it may be too expensive at this time. We are recent graduates so affordability is key. Not sure if this is reasonable, given it's our first trip abroad, but we'd like to stay in the 3-5k range to include everything for roughly 10-15 days.

We were thinking maybe seeing a few places in this trip...any ideas? We'd like to experience a little of everything, architecture, rich history, romance...etc.

Our tastes are pretty open and we are willing to give anything a shot but we are thinking of destinations in mostly Western Europe.

I've done some research already but would love some opinions from the well-traveled person.

We are not much into the heavy party scene but a night out for drinks and dancing could be appealing. We'd love to experience some rich culture and just enjoy all the history Europe has to offer.

We won't be renting a car so walkability is ideal-- our travel dates are flexible but we most likely won't be going during peak season so we can get more bang for our buck.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
