Planning a first time trip to Europe

Jump to last reply

Hello. My boyfriend and I are in our early 20s and are planning a trip to Europe together for May 2014. Both of us have never been and do not know when we will get the chance again, so I want to see as much as possible, without spending half our trip traveling. We plan on going between 21-24 days (including travel days from/to Los Angeles). Ideally, the places/things we would like to see are:

London (Stonehenge if possible; want to spend time in the British Museum)
Paris (would like to go to Normandy as a day trip, plus the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, etc)
Rome
Florence
Venice
Prague
Berlin
Amsterdam

We would like to partake in some fun nightlife activities in at least a few cities, love great beers, and I really just want to experience as much as I can there. We would spend between 2-4 night in each place.

I really do not have any idea what I am doing as far as planning this trip goes and i would love some input. Also, very importantly, I would like to make this a sort of budget trip, if possible. I would like to spend under $4000 each (even less would be much better). I am fine with hostels, night trains, and I am vegetarian.

Thank you anyone for advice regarding traveling between places, number of nights to stay, things I must see, and general tips!
