Where to go on July 2017

Hello everyone! My name is June and I want to ask some tips on where I should spend my 3 weeks in Europe this July 2017.

I am staying in London during June but will be travelling for a maximum of 3 weeks on July then head back to London again.

By the way, I'm 21 years old and I'll be travelling with my mother who's 50 years old.

First stop will be Paris as it is nearest while the others stops, I dont know yet. Hopefully you can help me with that.

Im looking for perhaps just another 2 or 3 cities to stay since I plan to at least stay 4 days in one place. Probably a place thats not too hot or that which has high traffic congestion, would be good.

I was actually thinking of going to Amalfi Coast or Capri for the beach since I admire the waters and scenic views but a friend suggested me not to go as the road towards there would be congested, temperatures could soar up to 40°C and there would be too much tourist on June and July which may not be good for my mother.

As for the budget, would 100 euro per person per day be enough? We just want a simple vacation, not too extravagant but also not too frugal.

Your friend is right about Capri.

Your budget is very low for summer beach holidays in Europe, but you might think about going to Gdansk and other parts of Poland.

Does your budget of €100/day/person include transport, hotels, site seeing, and food? If not, I think it may be a bit low. Also, if heat is a concern you might want to limit your travel to northern Europe, as it can get quite warm further south in July.

Completely agree with nukesafe. Temperature-wise I would suggest staying North but it gets very costly up here at that time of year when the weather is nice and we have all the sunlight. Poland and I suppose Eastern Europe in general is an interesting suggestion!

Hello, thank you for your replies!

Im sorry, i failed to clarify it but my budget was excluding hotels and major tranports. I was thinking about the daily meals, transport within the city, and entrance to museums or tourist area.


And thank you I'm definitely coinsidering going up north now.

Do you think Paris-Belgium-Amsterdam-Gdansk would be ok?

Or do you have specific cities that you suggest i should go?

Belgium with all due respect doesn't offer as much as France or Netherlands, except perhaps Bruge and Gent. Brussels isn't in the same class as Paris or Amsterdam. If you have 3 weeks and your budget is limited, I suggest, in addition to those two cities, somewhere like Berlin (rich culturally) and Krakow. In July, when most business travellers stay away, you can often get very good rate in business chain hotels. Amsterdam probably has the highest hotel price, followed by Berlin, Paris and Krakow.
