    It seems that you have tagged your question for Serbia & Montenegro - and I suspect that means that many people will not read your post. You might consider reposting without specifying a country or sending an email to the editor to see if the country tag can be removed.

    I haven't been to all the places you plan on visiting, but I have been to some, so I'll throw out a few comments. But I'll preface my remarks by saying that how much time to spend anywhere really depends on your interests and preferences for pace, etc. So I could be way off the mark!

    That said - sounds like a GREAT trip! I'm jealous! And great job in blocking out travel time - so many people forget to do that!

    Day 17: Should that be traveling from Ios to Split?

    I am a great fan of Split, and think that if your 3 days there include day trips (Trogir, maybe Krka National Park, maybe an island), then your timing is great. But if you mean the city only, you can probably cut at least one day there. Maybe even 2.

    2 days in Rome is really not very much at all. That is definitely a place to consider adding. I think 4 or 5 days is more reasonable.

    Likewise, 3 days in Paris isn't much. You might consider going up to at least 4 days, 5 if at all possible.

    Much as I love Amsterdam, you might considering cutting that to 3 days.

    Berlin is another place you might consider adding a day or two.

    Prague is charming, but I think you could cut it to 3 days. Maybe even 2, since you are allowing time for Cesky Krumlov.

    And Munich is another place you might be able to cut a day, even though there's more than enough to visit there.

    I haven't been to Greece yet, so can't comment on your time there.

    I also haven't yet visited Bordeaux. I'm sure I would enjoy a day or so in Bordeaux, but if you are looking to trim something to add time elsewhere, that might be one place to consider.

    I'm sure you already know that this itinerary is ambitious and trust that you are making decisions based on your knowledge of your stamina.

    Hope that helps! And ENJOY!
