Inexperienced traveler trying to plan for 2 weeks in Europe!

Jump to last reply

On August 1st I am meeting a friend in Paris to embark on a two week trip around Europe. We were hoping to plan an itinerary that allows us to see some of France, some of Switzerland, and some of Italy. I understand two weeks is not a lot of time to see everything we would like, but hopefully there is a way we could plan to see and do as much as possible in just fourteen days!

We are both college students and enjoy all things history and outdoors related. We don't want to spend time shopping or spend tons of money on food and drinks. We also don't have a need to stay in anything more than a basic hostel.

So, what areas of France/Switzerland/Italy do you recommend seeing? How do you recommend we get from point to point? We'd prefer to take a train from each location, is a Eurail train pass worth it? What about cost, what do you think two weeks of frugal travel will cost in the countries listed (less than $1,000 each, more?)?

Thanks!
