Hi, Spain and Greece are both BEAUTIFUL coutries, really. But you can't loose Italy. It is one of the most beautiful coutries in the world.

Best luck for your great trip!

Hi

Im not sure exactly what your are interested in seeing in Europe. Theres so many different countries and the vary a lot on how expensive they are. But anyway i'll give you my opinions on where i have been.

I would agree with the previous post that italy is a very nice country and its one of my faviourite places in europe well worth a visit. I also like greece a lot but if your down that way i would recomend bulgaria. Very nice weather, nice people and very cheap for europe.

If your in the UK then im assuming you will go to london. Its a good city for a few days but its very expensive. Im don't know how long your in the uk for but i would suggest heading to the south west (devon/cornwall). I would personaly choose france over england especially the south of france. Its a beautiful area and is easy access to spain italy etc if you want to visit there.

Germany is interesting my fav place is berlin and cezch republic is also worth a visit.

If you suggest how long your planning to travel and your interests may be able to help more.

Hi Gonzalo

not sure how long you looking to spend in Europe but I agree with Marie on going to Italy, Germany is good and easy access to Czech Rep,Austria,Holland and Budapest, all Id recommend over Spain, but its all personal choice.

As for England, depending on what your looking for stay in London for a few days then get out and explore, as previous said before southwest and south both nice as is the north east, if you like scenery then pop up to Scotland(cheap flights) loch lomond up thru to fort william is very nice, as is edinburgh and fife, if you like your whiskey then head up to murrayshire you'll be in heaven!

hope it helps

Hi,

Your trip sounds great! As for the Europe part.....Greece is really beautiful, but I think to really appreciate it you need to get out to the Islands, and maybe travel around those for a bit depending on time. Trains down to Athens are quite easy to find, although I think it would normally involve travelling to Thessoloniki and then further down. Spain is really beautiful, I personally really loved Seville, but that's personal taste! The trains in Spain are also really good, fast and quite comfortable compared to those in Eastern Europe especially!

Have a great trip!

I feel your RTW is missing the muslim world... You got almost everything else covered...

I think it would be a good idea to hit Turkey. There are very cheap flights to and from Turkey from Germany. And it is cheaper than Eastern Europe too.

I agree. Turkey would be a great addition. but what about africa? after turkey, you could always head down to egypt, see the pyramids, and then fly down to nairobi, catch an overland trip to vic falls/joburg/cape town and then fly to se asia from there.

Thanks.

I can change some of my itinerary. But Africa is not possible for me. Next time.

I'm thinking on what you told about visiting Turkey. So, I can change Greece for Turkey (I can't do both for a matter of time).

Looking at my itinerary... is it a good idea to visit Turkey instead of Greece?
