I also need some tips and advices regarding about a budget travel plan in europe. Thanks for creating this thread @sam04. and @Bob Carlsen for the blog that you've shared.
Hi @sam04, I did a small Eurotrip on the whole month of april with a budget of around 2.5k. I first landed in Madrid and staid there 7 days, then I took a flight with Ryanair (cheap) to London, staid there 3 days, then flight to Barcelona, and staid there 7 days, then Berlin for 3 days, then amsterdam for a weekend (I was supposed to return to Berlin on sunday, but the flight got cancelled so the airline postponed it for monday morning. Then Berlin again, staid there 2 other days, and got back to madrid and staid for another 4 days. And that was it. I reallly enjoyed it. I staid most of the time in hostals, with friends, and only in Amsterdam I rent and airbnb because I want with more friends, so the bill was split. I did a great shopping in Madrid (in Primark). I got back to home with money. 😊
If you decide where to go, I can recommend you some tours to book and places to visit.

Thanks for sharing that. I need advice as well and I think this'll be a big help to me for my soon travel in Europe. Anyway, thanks to sam04 for making this thread.
My daughter and I will visiting Italy the last two weeks of May. we are working on our itinerary and trying to figure out the bast places and number of days to stay in Venice, Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Amalfi Coast. We were thinking of 2 - 3 days in Rome but not sure what to do for Tuscany, Florence, and Venice. We have never been there and this is my number one bucket list to do. I have beaten cancer and will travel with my daughter so I am looking forward to this trip. How many days to you suggest in each? What special sites to see? I do know I would like to do a cooking class in Tuscany? and a wine tasting in Florence or Tuscany? Not sure how many days I should stay in each and I know it depends on what I would like to see but I am looking for suggestions. We will not have a car and will be counting on public transportation. I have been reading so much and my head is spinning. I really appreciate your help.

I visited all those places in Italy last September. All are on most tourists' check list so are very crowded except in low season which is getting to be only winter. I tried to find the out of the way attractions, which can be done.
The train system is good for getting between cities. I would recommend flying into Venice and then spend three nights and two full days there. Then take the train to Florence and spend three nights and two full days there. Next is the train to Rome with four nights and three full days. And finally, the train to Naples where you catch the local train to Pompeii and then Sorrento. You can take a bus along the Amalfi Coast road to Positano, staying for one night, and then to Salerno. You will be glad that someone else is driving as that road is extremely narrow and dangerous. You can enjoy the scenery. Then take a train from Salerno back to Naples and Rome, where you can spend a couple days before flying home. You should be able to fit this into two weeks. I suggest that you reserve hotels early as they fill up fast during tourist season. I used Booking.com, but there are many hotel sites. And buy an Italy guide book...it helps with planning.
