Hi guys, I'm going to Europe for 3 months, I need help planning my itinerary... I'm into history and culture. I've got a few places in mind but want recommendations from your experiences. Also I'll be going in winter, will this be ok?
I want to see Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Switzerland and England and Ireland to meet my partners famliy.
I know its a big ask, anything be appreciated. THANKYOU!

Ack, 6 days per country? Forget it! As a rule you need 2-3 weeks per country.

I would skip Greece in winter. All there is in winter is rain, cold wind and dirty Athens. I would also switch Portugal with Morocco. I would also think twice about Poland, depending what you want to do there.

id seriously consider cutting your list in half... concentrate on one area of europe, rather than ALL of europe. youll spend most of the time in transit, rushing around in every city - its no holiday!

because itll be winter, maybe stick to the south - portugal, morocco, spain, south of france, italy... theres TONNES on history and culture in all those places!

italy will rock your socks if your looking for history and culture. rome, pompeii, florence and venice... and the culture is a famous one but a pretty good one! spain is the same when it comes to culture. youll get an excellent cultural experience in all of them, if you give them enough time.

youll get so much more out of it if you take your time......

2-3 weeks in The Netherlands? Czech Republic? Even Austria? No way! Id kill myself if i spent 2-3 weeks in the Netherlands!

You should see more than capital city, but 3 months is fine for about 10 countries. You need to cut a few out. Besides, your all over the map. Alot of travel here. Choose maybe JUST Western Europe if you keen on all those countries. Leave Czech, Hungary, and Greece for another trip.
