Planning 30+ Day Itinerary - trying to avoid being too ambitious

Jump to last reply

I am currently in the planning stages for a trip for my girlfriend and I in May-June 2016. The amount of time we have is very flexible. Right now, about a month is the target, but that could be stretched to avoid burn out. I have never traveled extensively and have been reading a lot of posts so one of my main goals is to not be too ambitious.

The list of must sees are short. We need to go to Paris,Rome, and Malta. She enjoys Art and food. I enjoy castles and history. We both enjoy natural beauty and wouldn't be upset about a hike or two.

So far I've come up with the below Itinerary. Its already 4 days short so I can add days anywhere to alleviate exhaustion. I would like to go to somewhere in Belgium, Amsterdam, Germany (seems Western Germany would fit in easier with Eastern Germany), Austria, and the Swiss Alps. I would also love to hear must sees that would be along the route that would be worth adding some days to go to.

Day 1: Arrive in Paris from Boston or NYC
Day 2-4: Explore Paris
Day 5: Travel to Bruges
Day 6: Explore Bruges
Day 7:Travel to Amsterdam
Day 8-9: Explore Amsterdam
Day 10: Travel somewhere in Eastern Germany(Perhaps Cologne or Heidelberg)
Day 11-12: Explore City
Day 13: Travel to Salzburg
Day 14-15: Explore Salzburg
Day 16: Travel to Interlaken
Day 17-18: Explore Interlaken
Day 19: Travel to Rome
Day 20-23: Explore Rome
Day 24: Travel to Malta
Day 24-25: Explore Malta
Day 26: Back to Rome/Back to U.S.

I appreciate the assistance with this.
