Name Europe West to East

Start in Paris , hike the Swiss Alps, move down Italy, hop over to Greece, explore turkey, end with Oktoberfest.

Although my dates are flexible I'm looking to leave mid/late August to miss the height of the tourist season while still catching the good weather. I plan on a 6 week trip but if I can stretch my funds to stay longer I'm good with that too! I'm more of 'outdoorsy' type of person so I would like to see some of the landscape and do some hiking, but I also enjoy the nightlife, meeting new people and exposing myself to new cultures.

My plans are fairly flexible but tentatively my ideal itinerary is as follows:
France: Paris
Switzerland: Bern, Zermatt
Italy: Verona, Venice, Florence, Naples , Capri (island)
Greece: Athens
Turkey: Olympos, Istanbul
Germany: Munich

travelingcharles Trip sounds amazing. Naples was dirty and I didn't enjoy it. This time around, I am going to spend more time around the French Mediteranean, Spain, and Oktoberfest.

AlyciaCa Hey Holly, I'm also planning a Eurotrip from mid-June to end of September. I'm planning on starting in Spain and ending in Germany and hopefully hitting [at least] Greece, France, Italy, England and the Netherlands along the way. It would be cool to meet up!

Holly Carpenter Hi AlyciaCa, I would love to hear more about your plans. Ideally I would like to find someone I can do most if not all of the trip with. I just updated my trip with a little more detail but I'm willing to compromise if it means I will have a travel buddy! :) I'm also from Ca (orange county) so if this is something that sounds like it will work out for the both of us I'd love to chat more !

AlyciaCa So I meant to say I'm planning on going from mid-July to end of September. Basically I want to start with Running of the Bulls and end with Oktoberfest. I'm super flexible in between. All of the places you've listed sound great and I'm outdoorsy and athletic myself. I'm definitely looking to go on some cool hikes and such (as well as explore the nightlife!) I'm from LA so we're pretty close! When are you looking to book your trip? I'm wanting to buy a plane ticket soonish before prices start skyrocketing.
