I'm looking to do a brief 14(ish) day trip around Europe end of July begining of August next year and looking for some suggestions. Only just had the idea so anything goes, only must is that I need to end up in Paris I was thinking one way ticket then working my way back so ideas about places, accommodation and forms of transport would all be welcome.
Well you planned a trip a year advance. Its nice.
You can visit top places in Europe within 14 days like Milan in Italy, Munich, Berlin in Germany, Brussels in Belgium, Istanbul in Turkey, Seville in Spain, Manchester in England, Edinburgh in Scotland, Athens in Greece and Marseille in France.
You can get cheap accommodations at every places I mentioned above. -snip-
[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]
As you only have 14 days, you should fly everywhere rather than spending endless hours travelling on buses, boats and trains.
There are a number of cheap airlines. I use Ryanair as they are convenient for where I live. You can get a flight back from anyone of a number of places in Europe to Beauvais, and then a cheap shuttle ride to Paris, an hour away.
Don't try to do too much.
