Manila to Europe - How to plan without bursting blood vessels

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, my wife and I are planning our first trip to Europe from Manila, Philippines. As you can imagine, the distance and costs are going to be quite significant, so we would like to maximize our trip there, and determine the best method of travelling to and from Europe, as well as between the various intended destinations within the continent.

We're planning a trip from Aug. 24 to Sept. 8 (about 2 weeks or so).

Planned point of entry and exit is Milan, Italy. Trying to save money by booking round-trip. From there:

Milan - we plan to fly out directly from Milan to Paris via Easyjet, which will be leaving about 3 hours after we arrive in Milan.
Paris (4 days/3 nights) to
Madrid (4 days/3 nights) via budget airlines. Then to
Barcelona via train (4 days/3 nights). Then to
Florence, via non-budget airline. Then, from Florence to Milan, then fly out from Milan.
Probably Florence 3 days/2 nights, Milan same deal. Realize this takes us way over 2 weeks so we will figure it out and decrease number of days in some of the cities.

Does this sound like a good/feasible itinerary? Or would you recommend a different route? I realize we're pushing a large number of fairly distant locations but we might not be able to go back to Europe for a while so we really are trying to cram what we can in there. Any help/advice/critiques would be most appreciated.

We're on our last frayed nerves trying to make sense of it all and put it together so we welcome your sage advice, seasoned travelers.
