Itinerary and Planning Help

Jump to last reply

Hello! So me and a friend( both female 19y) will be traveling through Europe for 8 weeks( December 12 - February 5), starting and ending in Milan, which was the cheapest option considering where we are from.
We Will most definitely be buying an Eurail Global pass for 2 months unlimited, because we really like the freedom you get to make changes to your itinerary as you go.
But I still want and need your help with our ideas of where to go and our budget, because we would like to spend as low as possible without sleeping in a dumpster. But we are completely fine with hostels and buying food on the street and supermarkets.

Ideally we would like to go to
Slovenia( Ljubljana, Bled)
Croatia( Zagreb, Split,Hvar)
Hungary(Budapest)
Austria(Vienna, Salzburg, Hallstatt)
Czech Republic( Praga, Cesky Krumlov)
Poland( Krakrow, Wroclaw, Auschwitz)
Germany(Berlin!, Munich, Nuremberg, Dresden, Hamburg, Fussen)
The Netherlands( Amsterdam, Delft, Utretch)
Belgium
France( Lyon, Bordeaux, Tours, French Rivera, Annecy, Carcassone)
Spain( also Portugal, but we know it is to far away so we will probably just end up going to Barcelona)
Switzerland(? not sure because it is really expensive
Italy( Florence, Venice, Rome, Cinque Terre, Sorrento)

These are just ideas I would really apreciate your thoughts and comments on it; it is not definite and can be changed according to what you say. We would also like suggestions on places to add and/or omit! and what would your ideal 8 weeks winter Europe itinerary be!!!
Please! all comments are appreciated!
Also what are the best places to spend Christmas and New Years that wont break our bank?
We are both history buffs!(especially WW2) and like pretty places and cool places with lots of stuff to see and do!

Thank you very much!!
