Sample European Itinerary for a solo traveler.

Jump to last reply

Aloha everyone! First and formost, thank you for reading this. I am in the process of planning a trip to Europe. I have the dates pretty much nailed down, and was wondering if I could get some thoughts on my planned itinerary. It is as follows:

April 4th – 5th: Travel to Paris from Hawaii.

April 6th: Louve

April 7th: Eiffel Tower/Arc de Triomphe

April 8th: Les Catacombes/Notre Dame (these four on the 7th and 8th are all interchangeable with each other. I thought the whole religious aspect of Notre Dame would be an interesting contrast with the death in the catacombes.)

April 9th: Versailles Palace

April 10th: Travel to Venice (a short flight)

April 11th: Gallerie dell’ Accademia

April 12th: Travel to Florence/Gallerie dell’ Accademia/Travel to Rome (Debating either a straight trip to Rome from Venice or maybe a stop in Florence to check out their Gallerie dell' Accademia to see the infamous David statue. It's really the only thing I'd wanna see in Florence. According to research I've done, the train ride from Venice to Florence is about two hours and from Florence to Rome is about an hour and a half. So I was thinking of leaving Venice around 9, getting to Florence around 11, checking out the museum, leaving Florence around 4 and getting to Rome around 5:30. Not sure if the stop in Florence is worth it yet.)

April 13th: Colosseum/Pantheon

April 14th: Vatican Museums

April 15th: Travel to Greece (airplane)

April 16th: Acropolis/Parthenon

April 17th: Theatre of Dionysos/Agora

April 18th:
April 19th:
April 20th:

April 21st: Travel to Hawaii

As you can see, I have a three day window with nothing in it. Now my one of my questions is what should I do with those three days? Stay an extra day in one of the cities? Maybe fly into London prior to France and catch a train over? Or go to Amsterdam or Berlin? Although I don't really know what I'd want to see there. I was thinking of even Istanbal or Barcelona at the end. Or perhaps a place I haven't mentioned. Now all these items are able to be moved. The only thing set is me leaving Hawaii on the 4th, getting into Europe on the 5th, and flying out of Europe on the 21st. Getting to Hawaii on the 21st or 22nd does not matter. I'm open to all suggestions and input and look forward to reading what people have to say. Again, thanks for reading!
