Highlights of Europe- 13 Days/12 Nights, Help required planning a trip.

Jump to last reply

Hello people, Khawaja Talha here, I'm a 17 years old teenager doing his A'Levels that just loves to travel. Due to my managerial skills and devotion to travelling I've been allocated the task of planning a trip by my school. I've been given a basic outline to work with but still I'm completely torn at some areas. The following are the basic outlines:

Countries: Spain, France, Austria and Switzerland
Days: 13
Time of Visit: Late June or Early July

Except for the air tickets and hotel bookings I've got to manage EVERYTHING. To be really honest with you people, this is totally not my style of travelling, I would have chosen just 1 country and thoroughly visited instead of just skimming through 4 but then again majority is authority. Anyhow. look below for my questions:

1. Which Cities to visit (keeping in mind, its only a highlight tour)
2. How many nights to spend in each listed city?
3. How to travel from one country to another while keeping the budget low?
4. What to do (not to be confused with What to visit), I mean to say, which things should we do that limited to the country or its culture only? Something off the beaten path, something different yet enjoyable.

Thanks a lot in advance!
