Help w/ planning first European vacation

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Western Europe and would like some advice on which cities to hit. We're interested in taking an aggressive approach - seeing as much of the main attractions as we can in our time there, and returning in the future for more detailed itineraries. With that said, we're planning an overnight flight on June 8th, arriving the morning of June 9th. Original plan was to fly into London and work our way to Barcelona, via Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Florence, and Rome, departing Barcelona the morning of the 22nd. We were only planning one day in Amsterdam, Florence, and Barcelona, and at least 2 days everywhere else. I guess rather than criticism on how this is "too much" I'm looking for suggestions of whether time would be better spent elsewhere, and what the "must see" cities and attractions are. Like, should we cut out Barcelona and maybe Florence, and travel through Belguim, Germany, or Switzerland instead? I appreciate any constructive advice that could be provided. Thanks!
