Planning a first time Europe trip, Spain, Croatia, Italy, etc

Jump to last reply

Hey guys. So my buddy and i are planning our first trip to Europe starting on August 7th and ending on September 3rd. We are 2 27 year olds and so far we have booked our flights to Madrid, from Madrid to Dubrovnik on 8/17, from Prague to Zurich on 9/1 and Zurich back to US on 3rd. Reason why we picked Zurich is that it had best availability with award booking with United and there was a cheap flight form Prague to Zurich.

We are arriving in Madrid on 7th at 7:10am and our plan is to go to Ibiza and Barcelona. We are looking into different options from flying to Ibiza right on 7th, then to Barcelona and back to Madrid, or taking AVE to Barcelona, then to Ibiza and back to Madrid. My question is, which city should we stay longer in? We are interested in sightseeing, tryign local cuisine, and partying at night, but not too much that we won't be able to wake up around 10am and continue exploring.

After Spain, we are staying few days in Dubrovnik and Split and flying from Split to Rome (didn't reserve the flight yet) and then taking a train to Florence for 2 days, before heading to Pisa for half a day and then flying to Prague.

Considering that we don't have Italy trip planned yet, would you guys recommend any other European locations? Italy seemed like best option between Croatia and Prague.
