Some advice for my first trip to Europe?

Jump to last reply

Hello,

This year, sometime in late spring - summer, is going to be my first trip to Europe. I have a basic plan, some input would be very helpful.

I started off with travel guides in the library for some initial input, as there are obviously too many awesome choices. Ok, so for this trip, I am thinking of doing either of the following:

1. Barcelona and Paris - flying into Barcelona (staying 3 days) and flying out of Paris (staying 6 days), for a total stay of 9 or 10 days.

2. Paris(6 days) and Swiss Alps(3 or 4 days), flying in and out of Paris

Do these seem like doable options, given the amount of time I have? Also, if I were to pick a city and beach destination in France, what would Nice and Paris be a good choice?

For Paris, would it be better (price-wise), to look for small studios/apartment for the days I'm there, or am I better off getting a hotel?

With English, some very very basic Spanish, and a few French words, getting around in Paris should be ok, I'm hoping.

Your input is appreciated. I am still in the initial stages for this trip - thought I'd get some input here before finalizing plans. Thank you.
