Im looking to travel for around 30 days in europe. Im from England so plan to fly from Manchester to Paris on the 10th of august.
I was wondering if you think it would be possible to visit all these places in my timescale as i think i might be looking to do too much and maybe Italy could be left for another time. Im going to travel around using the interrail service.
Also this will be my first time travelling and i'll be going alone so any tips at all are more than welcome.
Thanks very much.
I think 30 days is sufficient for the places you are planning to visit. You might even be able to fit one more place in there.
Just a suggestion though and feel free to completely ignore me. Why would you backtrack from Rome to Bordeaux? It makes more sense to do Paris, Boardeux, Madrid, Barcelona, Lyon, Milan and fly from Rome.
In terms of tips:
1. try to be friendly and you will meet a load of cool people at hostels
2. take advantage of free walking tours, great way to meet people too and a great introduction to the city you are exploring with plenty of history
3. just relax and have fun.
Ah thats good news then!
Your completely right but the reason i want to end in barcelona was because i want to be there when the football season starts to try and get to a game at the nou camp so thats the reason for tracking back on myself, i know its not particularly logical but just something i really want to do
Thanks for the tips ill definitely take them on board
ok, that is cool then. Can you do Rome to Bordeaux in a day? I think you should stop somewhere in between. Maybe Nice or somewhere in Switzerland.
I think the selection of cities you've made is really great.
I can reccomend you some things to do in Barcelona, specially if it's your first time there.
You may know the most common ones like Sagrada Familia, Les Rambles, Passeig de Gracia, Gaudí's buildings, but my suggestions are about less known beautiful places there.
(I discovered them thanks to a website called Videos from Barcelona _ www.videosfrombarcelona.com):
- Santa Maria del Mar. A medieval church in El Born district, in which the writer Ildefons Falcones was inspired by to wrote his best-seller The Cathedral of the sea.
- Plaça dels Àngels. Near Les Rambles, it's the square in front of museu MACBA. Skaters go there to practice.
- Plaça del Rei. Near Les Rambles too, always there's some musician playing his instrument.
- Arc del Triomf. Emblematic monument that ends in front of the main entrance at the Parc de la Ciutadella.
And finally, my favourite one
- Sant Felip Neri square. So calm with a dramatical history and a particular atmosphere.
Just keep your belongings under control and ejoy your trip!
