Weather help! Europe in April/May

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone. I'm starting to think about a backpacking trip to some of my "wishlist" countries starting early April and ending 2nd or 3rd week in May. I'm used to colder weathers (Canadian) but as I most enjoy scenery, architecture and culture in a trip (with some art and major sites thrown in here and there), I don't want to be forced inside because of rain/shoddy weather. I was thinking of visiting the following countries in the order they're written. Any thoughts?? Suggestions on must sees/ where to focus super welcome as well:

Portugal
Spain
SOUTHERN France
?Germany
Switzerland
Austria
Greece (thinking the Islands)
Turkey (thinking Istanbul)
