Need Advice for 5-8 Week Europe Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I've been daydreaming about making a trip back to Europe. I have a 5 week itinerary planned and then an additional 10 days I've been considering adding on) I'm celebrating graduating from undergrad even if it costs me a good bit of cash. My interests include history, art, architecture, wine & beer, meeting people, going out, sports, hiking, cycling). I'm looking to do a good mix of exploring cities and spending some time relaxing in different natural settings. As you may be able to see I love wine and am looking to spend some time doing some tours of some regions where my favorite wines come from. I appreciate your advice in telling me what you might change. I lived in Europe for almost 6 months but that was 2 years ago and I was only 21. Thanks in advance

Add in 7 Days for Travel/Emergency/Laundry. Already accounted for some of the smaller travel periods in some of the trips.

45 Days

What would you cut? Do I need a couple more days allotted for traveling? I'm a bare-bones traveler and don't mind doing some overnight travel options or odd hour flights between places. I'm all about seeing a lot of places without frills.
