Visiting Multiple Countries in a Single Trip

Jump to last reply

I'm just wondering how many of you have done an "all europe trip" or have spent a summer traveling through multiple countries in Europe. I have spent two weeks in Italy and two weeks in Ireland but have not traveled through multiple countries in one trip. My husband teaches and I will not be working so we have the summer free and would love to make the most of this unqiue opportunity. The places we would love to visit are Greece (mostly Athens and Santorini), Italy (Amalfi Coast), France (Paris and countryside), London and Scotland (Edinburg and Isle of Skye). We are also open to suggestions for other places.

I would love to hear your opinions on taking on an ambitious itinerary like this vs. sticking to one or two places per trip. Since we have the summer free we are trying to decide if we would like to travel our normal two week trip and visit one country or travel two months and visit multiple countries. I really want to enjoy our time and not feel burnt out at the end.

How would you go about planning a trip like this? Would you travel from the north down to the south or vice versa? So far I'm thinking 7 days in Greece, 4-5 days in Positano/Amalfi Coast, 10 days in France, 3 days in London and 7 days in Scotland.
