Itinerary tips for first timers

Jump to last reply

Hi there,

My partner and I are in our early 30's and looking to travel to Europe for the first time next May/June for 5 weeks. We would love any input on our (very) rough itinerary, particularly re: if we should spend more/less time in some places or reduce the places we are visiting (and if so which ones)? Or whether we should reconsider different places all together! Any help or advice or tips would be wonderful.

Our first thoughts are :

Arrive London (5 nights)

Paris (5 nights)

Bruges/Ghent (3 nights)

Amsterdam (3 nights)

Budapest (5 nights)

Venice (3 nights)

Florence (4 nights) (day trips out to Pisa & Cinque Terre & maybe Siena if time permits)

Depart Rome (4 nights)

We would love to have Prague or Vienna in the mix but I just don't think we'll have enough time? Germany will also have to wait for another day I think.

All feedback, advice etc is completely appreciated! Thank you :)
