Post-college backpacking trip

Jump to last reply

Hello all. I am traveling to Europe with two of my girlfriends after we graduate from college this summer. We will be traveling in late June for 21 days (so technically 19 days of actual traveling considering we are flying from the US).

We have decided on our itinerary and wanted to see what other traveling experts have to say. The three of us have been to Europe before and are experienced travelers. However, we have never gone backpacking and stayed at hostels. What are some tips you would give us as it is our first time backpacking? Another big dilemma I am having is whether I should bring a backpacking pack or a rolling duffel bag (NOT a suitcase)? We are also open to suggestions on what to do in each city and what is a good day trip to take from Florence.

Below is my itinerary.

Day 1: Arrive in Rome at 12 pm
Day 2: Rome
Day 3: Rome
Day 4: Rome – Leave for Florence– First night in Florence
Day 5: Florence
Day 6: Florence (Stay in Florence overnight, but take a day trip to Verona, or Chianti)
Day 7: Venice - Spend overnight train to Vienna
Day 8: Vienna
Day 9: Vienna
Day 10: Vienna – Leave for Berlin
Day 11: Berlin
Day 12: Berlin
Day 13: Berlin
Day 14: Berlin – Leave for Amsterdam
Day 15: Amsterdam
Day 16: Amsterdam
Day 17: Amsterdam – Leave for Barcelona
Day 18: Barcelona
Day 19: Barcelona
Day 20: Barcelona
Day 21: Leave for America

Thanks for your help!
