So a friend and i are planning to travel around Europe in maybe April and we are so spoilt for choice! We've travelled Germany and Czech Republic this year and have a trip to Amsterdam planned in September. Where do people recommend to travel??? We'd prefer anywhere east from France and we have 6 weeks all together.
Any replies are recommended! :-)
Provide more specifics on your interests, it is impossible to advice on a so generic question...
You can do Central Europe - Austria, Switzerland etc - , maybe Italy. I don't know, what are you expecting from your trip, you should tell us what are your interests etc!
Obviously, you can't miss Rome. It has so much to offer around every corner. Florence is also a must see. One of the most beautiful cities on the planet!
If you're in Italy, then la Cinque Terra is another hot spot, and ofcourse Venice.
I recommend getting an interrail pass, as travel on trains can be quite expensive throughout Europe.
Great You can do - Austria, Switzerland and other Central Europe.
6 weeks is a lot of time and you can certainly pack in a lot. I highly recommend going east and renting a car to travel through Transylvania, up through the Ukraine, and Southern Poland. The scenery is gorgeous, it's inexpensive, and you'll have a ton of flexibility to see things off the beaten path.
Yaeh, I agree with nomorebadtrips, Ukraine and Poland are particularly nice in Eastern Europe
Edinburgh is an absolute must and yes I'm being bias but you can't beat it for history. Every street corner has a story to tell and there are so many beautiful old buildings and we even have our own Pandas now
Mary Kings Close
Princes Street Gardens
You can even take a journey out to Loch Lomond or wlak up Ben Nevis which isn't that far and the scenery is stunning.
