Traveling around Europe in 29 days: Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling around Europe for a month with my friend in mid June. The flight was free and many of the hotels will be. I have a budget of 4,000. This will be for some accommodations (air bnb, nicer hostels, or guest homes), food, travel, going out. My friend and I both love to eat and drink, beach, hike, nature, going out, etc. Despite reading every travel book, sample itinerary, etc. I'm still struggling to plan this. This is my first extended Europe trip, and I don't want to make the mistake of brig overly ambitious. Here is a VERY tentative intinarary. A lot has already gone into planning this but I still have a lot of questions.
Day 1 overnight in Milan
Day 2-5: Paris
Day 5-7: thinking of hitting Lyon/Annecy, or Alsace en route to Italy
Day 7-9 Cinque Terre
Day 9-13: Florence and Tuscany region
Day 13:Travel To Rome and fly to Malta via Ryan Air, which operates daily flights. No interest in seeing Rome for a second time.
Day 17: Fly back to Rome and travel to Ancona to catch ferry to Croatia. Arrive in Split next morning
Day 18-23: a few nights in split, hvar, and Dubrovnik. Will be taking day trips to see the lakes/ waterfalls and possibly more islands. Korcula is also a possibility.
Day 24-27: Slovenia, Lake Bled, other attractions. I fear I haven't given myself enough time here.
Day 27-29: End trip in Milan with day trip to Lake Como. Possibly a day trip in Venice.

There are a lot of places I know I'm leaving out. i had to choose between doing Malta and Southern Italy/ Amalfi Coast. No idea if that is the right decision. There are so many beautiful places in Italy. As for France, should I do Lyon and Annecy or Strasbourgh and Colmar? Any help is much appreciated.
