Month in Europe ... advice?

So I'm thinking of going to Europe for the month of May. I would arrive and leave from London, but everything else is arbitrary. Some places I'd like to visit are:
- Stonehenge or Avebury
- Bath, Cotswolds
- Paris
- Rome

I'd like to emphasize
- Hiking, walking (outdoors stuff)
- Art museums
- Outdoor cafes

I speak French and German fairly fluently so difficulties in getting around are not really a factor. I'm also pretty young at 20 years old.

I really want to get a true feel for Europe as opposed to always being in touristy places. I went to Mexico last year and ended up being stuck in Americanized-Cancun where I got absolutely no sense of what Mexico is like.

Any suggestions for a really neat itinerary?

Sounds like a neat itinerary to me: 2 weeks Britain, one week Paris, one week Rome.

You are in no danger of having a Cancun-like experience in any place you are going.

Have a great time!

Hi tothestars, weren't you originally just going to have 10 days for Europe? How fortunate you are to extend your trip to a total of a month.

Yeah I was, but then I had exams around the time that I had originally intended to go. Plus the itinerary that I set up before was retarded. It was too much in too little time.

Hi To,

>Month in Europe ... advice?<

You will need an older, more experienced gentleman to be your companion and guide.

Take me with you.

How about

10 days in the UK: 5 in London
Eurostar London to Paris - 6 days
Fly www.myair.com Paris Orly to Venice - 3 days
Train to Florence - 3 days
Train to Rome - 6 days
Fly home from Rome.

I realize that I am giving you the Grand Tour, but there are good reasons why it is The Grand Tour.

Have a great visit.
