Tips for making an itinerary for 1st European trip.

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I have decided to take a trip out of the country to Europe, and we both have almost zero travel experience! We are graduating college, and we are both very excited to venture out. However, we originally wrote down all of the places we really wanted to see. After reading through countless forums, I realized we probably were a little in over our head with all of the places we wanted to see. For example, his list included Paris, Madrid, Barcelona and Figeures, Spain (He is a huge Salvador Dali Fan). I, on the other hand, love the historical sites and old cities. The WWII buff inside of me wanted to see Auschwitz in Poland, Dachau in Munich, Germany, and entirely saturate ourselves in the country of Italy for the majority of the trip! Haha, overwhelming, I know!! So I will have to wait on Poland and Germany since we are only going for 2-3 weeks. Our itinerary is still a little vague, but I just want to make sure we keep it realistic. We plan on taking our trip May/June 2014. 2-3 weeks depending on whats feasible for what we want to do. What I am really asking, is 2-3 weeks long enough to visit Paris, Spain and Italy? Particularly the cities Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Venice, Pompeii, and either Capri or Cinque Terre. I know we are all over the map and this is so broad. We've never been there and really just looking for advice for people who are familiar with these countries and recommendations for really breathtaking sights to see! I've read mixed reviews on the best ways to travel between them as well. Since we want to see so much, maybe plane or night train would be best? I'm bracing myself for some tough criticism with this vague post lol so any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
