I plan to travel in Europe for the first time. I am from Hong Kong

and my route is UK(london) > france (paris and nice) > swiss > italy ( rome, milan, florence, venice) > greece (athens)

what is the best way to travel between these places?

are you on a budget?

Yes, it is possible. But you are rushing it.

Both London and Paris take at least 5 days to do it justice. Same for Rome and Florence.
As a rule of thumb I tend to calculate at least 14 days for a country.

Italy is nicest in May, so you might want to focus on Greece and Italy, giving them 10 days each.

I also noted that you haven't answered the question on budget. (Most asians find travelling in Europe extremely expensive.) Calculate with needing around 50 EUR per day if you stay in hostels. (It is possible to do it cheaper though. I've been just been in May in Italy on a budget of 30 EUR per day. Message me for info.)
