[Itinerary Help] Europe in a month

Jump to last reply

Hi Guys!

I'm currently planning a trip to Europe for about a month or slightly longer. It's about 4 years since I last went to Europe and this will be my first trip with my girlfriend. We are going in december to experience winter and snow for the first time in our lives, and also to catch as many football matches as possible (we are avid football fans).

This is my current draft of Itinerary.

Arrive in Berlin
Stay for 2 nights

Travel to Dortmund
Stay for 1 night

Travel to Paris via Amsterdam and Brussels (I know they are not worth visiting, so we will stop over for a couple of hours just to walk around).
Stay for 3 nights

Travel to Switzerland (not yet decided which city, could do with some advise)
Stay for 3 nights

Travel to Munich
Stay for 2 nights

Travel to Vienna or Budapest (or someone can advise on this leg cause we had spare time so squeezed in either of this 2 city)
Stay for 3 nights

Travel to London (should we visit other city? Heard Scotland is nice)
Stay for 7 nights

Travel to Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia; Portugal worth visiting?)
Stay for 5 nights

Travel to Italy (Venice, Rome)
Stay for 5 nights

Fly home :)

Any suggestions for us? Dortmund and Valencia are purely for Football matches so we are only expected to stay 1 night there. Any other cities worth going and is the duration we planned for each city enough? Vienna made sense for us after Munich because its nearer but heard Budapest is much nicer.

We are planning to travel by Train mostly except from Vienna to UK, UK to Spain and Spain to Italy by flight. Any saving tips for accomodation and transportation?

Lastly, and safety tips for notorious theft cities like Rome and Paris?

Thank you so much in advance and I look forward to your suggestions.
