A friend and I have a trip to europe planned for 3-4 months. Initially we had a list of about 20 countries we'd like to see. however, after seeing everything on a map... i've come to realise how rushed we're going to be.

Does anyone have any advice on doing a europe tour over a few months... and how long they spent in each city/country.

also, any thoughts on what a reasonable number of countries is to cover in that time?

Very much in general, I'd say you need about two weeks minimum to 'do' a country, unless you only want to see the capitals. This means you can do around 7, maybe 8 countries.

ah it depeneds which country - your question is a bit vague - do u have a choice of region?
Id suggest 3-4 months in Eastern Europe...that wud be perfect. 3-4 months in Western Europe and you would need a bank loan!
