Boyfriend and I are going away for a month end of the summer, we're way too excited tho & picking places to go already! But with so many options we don't even know where to begin!

We're looking for a bit of a mix between big touristy cities and cheaper, less busy places

Any suggestions?

A while back our group went 1st to Paris, then to Milan, Brindisi (heel of Italy) then ferry to Corfu. After week on the beach went to Athens. Then back through Serbia, Croatia to Vienna (which is a v expensive place). Then to Copenhagen and then back to England.

We ALWAYS travelled at night so we minimized hotel or hostel stays to save £. We bonded like mad and none of us will EVER forget it.

Have fun.

Hey Nathan, I did this last year;

Amsterdam -> Berlin -> Prague -> Vienna - > Budapest. Then I flew to Rome. Although you could go into Croatia to avoid flying. Train costs were very minimal and all the trains were direct. I did this across 3 weeks. Spent 3-4 days in each place.

You could skip Budapest and go to Venice if you want to get into Italy. Venice is very expensive though imo. Also you can look into booking these trains directly as it may be cheaper than an interrail pass. Trust me! The pass would have added about £100 onto my trip, along with the hassle of filling in and messing with the pass.

You could fly to Madrid, then get the high speed train to Barcelona, then up into southern France, then across to Milan. Really depends on your budget and how long you're going for. However you start it though, I'd reccommend flying to kick start your journey unless you have easy access to Eurostar. For up North in the UK it is much cheaper for me to fly to Paris than trains.

Since you are going with your boyfriend I would highly recommend not missing out on Prague, it's such a romantic place, the atmosphere at night is truly magical.

Thank you! That sounds like an amazing trip, so many different kinds of places We're thinking of doing similar, is Serbia worth it though? Did you have to book overnight trains in advance? And could you tell me roughly how much money you spent on food etc? We're really not sure how much to save up

Thank you so much! That sounds like a lovely trip and we're actually considering all those cities! Venice seems a bit overrated and not worth the money, we'd rather go to Florence or Milan if we do go to Italy. Did you find 3-4 days in each place was enough? How did you like Vienna?

Yep, we're not sure about Eurostar, especially since we're not sure we want to go to Paris and/or Amsterdam in the first place. We're hoping to go for about a month, but it'll depend on how much money we can scramble together How much do you think we need to budget? We were thinking roughly £300 per week each, assuming we'll stay in hostels/airbnb, buy breakfast and lunch ourselves and go out for dinner at cheap restaurants/takeaways, do mostly free or cheap stuff, and have a bit of money leftover in case something goes wrong

We actually went to Prague together last summer but you're right, it's such a lovely place, we wouldn't mind going there again

Good call on Florence/Milan. Yeah 3-4 days was enough, I think you can go through all the key highlights of the city in that time whilst mixing in some relaxing times. Vienna is a beautiful city, but being a tourist is expensive, as in 'if you want to look use this lift in this building to see a nice view it costs 6 euros' expensive. Very commercialised city - everything has a price it felt like. I must say on my trip that I highlighted, it was my least favourite destination. I would say that it's another 'romantic' location in Europe though.

I don't like Paris. I wouldn't skip out on Amsterdam if you haven't been though, I thought it was awesome.I spent about £1150 total for the 3 weeks including travel/accom and spending on random things like a vatican tour. If you end up going to Rome, food is expensive.

Thank you! I think we'll give Vienna a miss then, but then again it does look really pretty

I've been to Amsterdam once as a kid, all I remember is almost getting hit by a bike every time we crossed the road Thanks for the tip though, looking beyond the weed and red light district stuff it actually looks rather lovely!

We're now thinking of doing Amsterdam -> Berlin -> something (Prague? Krakow? Vienna?) -> Budapest -> something (Slovenia? Croatia?) -> Milan -> Marseille and flying back from there. Thank you so much for all the advice!

If you do go back to Amsterdam, be the person on the bike this time! You can't go without riding around the city on a hire bike at least once Also if you are meat eaters and love BBQ, do try a restaraunt called Pendergast. Or if you want to try/love ramen, head to Fou Fow Ramen. Both were Delicious! If you want to cut costs on accomodation, stay in a double in ClinkNOORD, it has ferries going across to Centraal every 8 minutes or something crazy late into the night.

I haven't been to Poland myself unfortunately, but many of my friends have (they highlight that if you are a big drinker then it's the place to be as beers are cheap lol)

From what I know though the Berlin to Krakow train can be long (around 9 hours direct with no overnight which will take you to a comfortable arrive time beyond 4am) so keep in mind travel times. I couldn't be on a train for 9 hours unless it was a comfortable overnight sleeper. 6 is my limit so I planned around that roughly. If you go to Budapest definitely book into the Szechnyi Thermal Baths - insane! Make sure to get a cabin with the ticket too so you can keep all your stuff safe easily and you have a little privacy. I went to stay for an hour or two... and stayed for like seven haha. I was just slowly touring all the pools with a random german dude I met there.

not really an "interrail", but in one week i did vienna >> budapest >> bratislava >> salzburg i travelled via train and as mentioned previously, vienna was v expensive, but i thought it was worth every cent because it's a gorgeous place! bratislava was pretty lowkey and really really picturesque, we actually took a boat there and it's honestly just a piece of art! budapest was rly cheap but i found that i got bored pretty quickly (perhaps it was the hot weather haha) but it's worth a visit. salzburg was really touristy but as a sound of music fan, i HAD to go there!

croatia is a must! i went to split, dubrovnik, and zadar. out of all of them i'd recommend dubrovnik because there's so much to do and see, split was more lowkey but very pretty. you can probs skip zadar, there's a lovely beach though.

Thanks for the recommendations! We both looove food, so knowing us that's what most of the budget will be spent on

We're not travelling to drink but it would be nice experiencing some nightlife, so maybe we could have one big night out in Poland. We actually found this hostel online that does massive pub crawls for a tenner!

Hmm thanks for the heads up, we haven't really looked into travel times yet. Did you prebook all your trains or did you find you can just turn up at a station and hop on? I'm a big fan of planning stuff out myself but my boyfriend insists most of the fun in backpacking is the flexibility to go wherever life takes you or something Those baths sound lovely, we do love a good spa day so we'll be sure to check that out, thank you

Thank you! That sounds like a lovely lil trip, we haven't really considered Bratislava, is there much to see/do there? Salzburg looks sooo pretty, I'd love to go, but my boyfriend's scared of mountains Rightfully so, I do like hiking myself so I'd be dragging him along

Dubrovnik looks absolutely stunning, isn't it really really busy though?

admittedly, bratislava's old town is quite quick to cover within a day and there isn't anything OUTSTANDING there in terms of things to do, but they have nice galleries and it's generally a nice place to walk around. i found a lot of amusement walking through narrow lanes and gazing at the buildings, and there's really cute cafes and restaurants (local delicacies are worth a try!). it's a very historically rich place and it shows!

salzburg is gorgeous, and i didn't find the mountains a problem! however, like vienna, there's a price for going in castles and other attractions.

yeah dubrovnik is sooooo busy!! my croatia trip was actually a road trip and we struggled to find parking! stunning but very touristy, so we'd leave our apartment early so we can beat the crowds, and we walked on side streets (which was very insightful!).

Thank you! Bratislava does sound nice and it'd be good to have a less busy destination in the mix to just chill out a bit, so we'll def consider that any local delicacies you'd recommend?

We're going in September so hopefully it'll be a bit less busy then... Did you go there by car then? Seems impossible to reach by train :/

I was the same! Everywhere I planned on walking some food in a shop window would always catch my eye...

Aye I've heard of 'Krawl through Krakow' lol.

I was solo travelling so a bit of stability/comfort for me was having my trains/accom booked beforehand, yeah. Although I understand the need to have a bit of flexibility. I'd say be flexible around the countries you're not 100% on and book in advance for places you are 100% sure you will want to visit no matter what. So maybe put aside 3 days for Budapest but don't book anything, and just book your accomodation for the day after the 3rd for the following country. If you want to go to Budapest then you can book whilst you're in Prague/Krakow or whatever. However if you want to stay in Prague for an extra few days or go somewhere else then don't bother with Budapest and book travel to the next one you have accom for (and just make sure there's an easy travel method)

Also, you looked into Airbnb?

If you just want to jump on a train however and see where it takes you then really you just need to book a flight to your starting point and go from there. I didn't realise you were backpacking, all the more to flexibility then!

That's extremely similar to what we did. We flew to Milan, then to Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, home.

Best and cheapest by a fair margin were Prague and Budapest.

Food when you're travelling is just the best, there's so many local things to try!

I get that, solo travel seems like a great but somewhat daunting experience! That sounds like a good plan, though my only question is won't travel and accommodation be full/more expensive when you book just a few days in advance?

We've mostly been looking into hostels but they're honestly my perfect idea of hell, I'm a very light sleeper and uni halls have put me off shared bathrooms for life Airbnb might be a much nicer alternative, having a room to ourselves with a bed that's not 5 ft long would be ideal haha

Thank you! We've heard mixed reviews of Budapest but it seems like there's plenty to do, and it's cheap so why not

Hi, I though I’d reply to this as I’ve just spent this evening sorting out trains for our summer hols. We tend to do inter railing for two weeks at a time to fit in with work commitments. A couple of years ago we travelled from Budapest to Vienna to Prague. Budapest reminded me a lot of Prague except that it was less crowded and so more enjoyable. Vienna is totally different to Prague and Budapest, it’s more like a western city and was expensive as others have said.

Rome is also a beautiful city if you can fit that into your schedule with lots of interesting things to see. Berlin is great too.

One tip is that most cities have “free” walking tours that are worth going on. (They also have the usual paid tours, but these are probably out of your price range and the free ones are just as good). The tour guides expect a tip but this can be as much or as little as you like, a few euros is fine.They are a great way of finding out about new places and we normally do them at the beginning of the time in each place as the guides point out other things of interest to see.

I remember video snapchatting my friend at 2am with a recording of total darkness... with the person in the bed above me snoring like a T-Rex. I genuinely think if you snore you should get a room for yourself lol.

Hi, nice to see you pop up on here as well

You make Budapest sound great, we absolutely loved Prague so a second city like that would be fantastic, thank you Did you think Vienna was worth the money?

Rome would be nice too, it's just a bit far out, also we're afraid it'll be very very busy and we all know one anxious boy who can't deal with that too well Another idea we did consider is go all the way down Italy then cross over to Greece, but we'd probably miss out on Berlin and Amsterdam because our budget doesn't stretch that far sadly

Thank you, those walking tours actually sound really nice! We'll definitely look into that a bit more, thank you

We did enjoy Vienna and on that holiday the general consensus was that Budapest was the best, then Vienna, then Prague. I think that we had a different sort of holiday than you will though as we paid to visit attractions (we bought a Vienna Pass) and also stayed in a 4* hotel. You probably need to find out how many free (or very cheap) attractions are in each place to find out whether it is worth staying there.

Parts of Rome were busy but a lot of it is really quiet streets with small pizzarias. There are also lots of free things to see and areas like villa borgese are lovely to stroll around in.

it's a nice chill place! my mother had the slovak goulash, and i had potato dumplings filled with meat, served with sauerkraut and fried onions! i can't seem to find the slovak word for it, but trust me it's delicious! would like to warn you on the service charge though, honestly wasn't expecting it to be so much.

we flew to zadar (because at that time there were only flights to zadar), rented a car, and drove to split, and drove down to dubrovnik (and paying a quick visit to a small bosnian town called neum!), before driving up to zadar for the last 2 days. it seems very inconvenient, but road trips in croatia never get boring! the views are stunning and often we'd find ourselves pulling over just to look at the view.

Haha, yep, we're on a pretty tight budget Maybe we'll have a holiday like yours a couple years further down the line, if/when we've got decent jobs. You're right, and we're both more than happy just walking about aimlessly taking in vibes, architecture etc then sitting down in a park to chill out

That does sound lovely, and we're quite keen on seeing more of Italy since we've got this vague plan of moving there when we finish uni

we flew to zadar (because at that time there were only flights to zadar), rented a car, and drove to split, and drove down to dubrovnik (and paying a quick visit to a small bosnian town called neum!), before driving up to zadar for the last 2 days. it seems very inconvenient, but road trips in croatia never get boring! the views are stunning and often we'd find ourselves pulling over just to look at the view.
That food does sound good, can't wait to try all of it

Ooh no that sounds lovely, I love road trips and just stopping whenever you feel like it! We were thinking of renting a car for a bit actually, but I'm not sure whether we'd be allowed, my boyfriend's only had his license for two years. Did you like Bosnia?
