Alright so I am from India, I always wanted to travel Europe and it's one of my favourite destinations after the USA.
I am still a teenager, so I want to cover Europe before I turn Twenty.
I was looking to plan a trip but this virus came in between.
Excluding flights, how much you think it'll cost me for these cities?
Italy;
Rome
Venice
Positano ( just for one day, I want to see the Mediterranean and almafi coast).
Florence ( maybe or maybe not)
France;
Paris
French Rivera and some country side
Germany;
Berlin and maybe some country side, any suggestions?
Spain;
Barcelona or Madrid
Ibiza
Switzerland;
Geneva, mount titlis and one more beautiful city ( I know this one would be the most expensive haha)
Netherlands;
Amsterdam

If any cash would be left then I would checkout one more eastern European city. Most probably Prague or Austria

I love UK but for that I would need to take a seperate visa so I am excluding it.

How much you think it would cost me to travel to these cities? I am not going to stay in one city for more then a day or two at max. Since I am a teenager I would most probably book a hostel or some cheap Airbnb for stay.

I know there are a lot of Europeans here, your advice would be greatful .
 
I went to amsterdam last year, all i can say is you can spend anywhere from 150 euros to 500 euros a day in such countries. I stayed in a 100 euros a night hotel and it was very far from city center. I guess hostel would be 50 euros a night in the city center.

Hostel - 50
food - 50
commute - 10-50

so 100-150 euros a day if you wanna live average or below average lifestyle.

And then add all the flight costs.

It won't be cheap @OP.

Thanks that gave me a nice idea.

Flights are around $600. How much it would be according to you?
 
You've listed amongst the most expensive destinations in europe. If you're expecting a comfortable trip for week (at least my idea of one), even if staying in ecent b&bs in tourist hotspots, you're still talking thousands of euros imo with all the traveling costs.

If you're on quite a tight budget and you're just going to get away for a bit, party, drink and check out the talent, that money will get you a lot more luxury in east europe.
And the people in the eastern european countries i've been to are super friendly and helpful but tend to keep to themselves and don't mean mug tourists for being in the wrong neighbourhood like they do in places like uk and france.
 
Life isn't cheap over here, but there are a lot of things to see and I'd recommend you to go to hostels.

I went to Rome and spent like 40 euros for 4 nights and met awesome people. You could visit the Colisseo and the Forum for like 28 euros and spend the day in the old part of town. If you like walking, you can honestly see everything in 2 or 3 days. It's one of the best cities I've visited so far.

Amsterdam, I also would spend around 15 euros per night, and there are a lot of great things to see there. Life is super expensive, there. But it's a beautiful place and life at night is super cool! I go there often, I love it there!

Paris is a expensive as well, but you can stay in hostels in Barbes for like 10 euros per night. It's not the coolest place of Paris, but it's close to The Moulin Rouge, and the subway takes you pretty much anywhere easily. You can see many things within two days. I go to Paris all the time, it's not far from home.

Barcelona is great for cheap hostels too. The one I went to was super cool, and it was around 10 euros per night and the staff organized a lot of great activities to visit the city and to party. If you rent a bike, for 15 euros a day, you can see the whole city within a couple of days and have a free time to visit a couple of museums too. Don't spent more than 3 days there, it's not as big as you might think.

Germany is awesome as well, but I've only been to Cologne and Düsseldorf, which are both great! I don't remember the price I paid to stay there, though, it's been a while.

I'd recommend you go to Athens too. The flights are cheap from Roma and life is cheaper then in any other countries I've mentionned earlier. 3 days max, you'll get to see every important monuments with a simple 35 euro pass. I've stayed in a hostel for less than 10 euros a night.

France is big, I'd recommend you take the time to visit Toulouse before heading to Barcelona, it's pretty close. Bordeaux is beautiful as well. I booked a normal hotel room in Toulouse for 50 euros a night. I stayed there a couple of days only then went to Barcelona. You don't need to spend more time there anyway. I didn't sleep in Bordeaux, I spent two days wandering around in the summer and took a little nap in a parc. I've never felt safer than there. Beautiful city and super cool people.

I'd recommend you visit Lisbon too. I go there often, it's really cheap. Hostel rooms can go for as cheap as 5 euros a night, breakfast is less than 3 euros. There are so many incredible things to see there, it's insane. 3 days in Lisbon should do the trick and I'd add a couple of days to visit Sintra, which is 45 minutes away from Lisbon. The train is cheap to go there. And there is a bus that takes you to Cabo Da Roca, which gives you an incredible view on the ocean.

Also, you can get super good deals with bus companies. You can travel from one city to another with Flixbus. I believe they offer a pass that allows you to visit 5 cities of your choice for 99 euros. I use them all the time. For instance, from my hometown in Belgium to Paris, I'd pay 15 euros for a 6 hour ride. Going from Toulouse to Barcelona cost me around 20 euros for a 5 hour ride. If you plan everything correctly and if you are not the kind of guy who spends all his money in expensive and overpriced restaurants, you can spend a month in Europe visiting many cities for less than 1500 euros.

Just hitchhike and camp. I camped on Menorca for one week then hitched back to Sweden. Stopping over at Amsterdam and france. Go for it!
 
You've listed one of the most expensive countries/cities in Europe, you should really consider visiting some smaller countries and cities as they have that special 'something' vibe and they're more unique
 
As an European, I would say about 150€ a day , plus flight costs. Plus add few hundreds more just for safety.

You can survive with like 50-70€ a day too. But you are coming as a tourist, to have a good time, so yeah. That would be fair amount I think.
 
Hello there,

I did a similar thing. I took a 1 month interrail ticket and that allows you to travel across all Europe through trains.
Visited in total 10 countries and 14 cities, starting from France as first destination and Greece + Turkey as final destinations (Turkey is not included in the pass, had to take a seperate bus ticket).
I would say the level of comfort was like 6/10 (10 for a 4-5 star hotel + meals in restaurants only) and for that was pretty decent.
Total cost was 3000 euros all included, counting some news stuff I bought for the trip.

Hope that gives an idea. If you want further informations, you can PM me ;)

Yeah I would love to visit eastern europe too, but most of eastern European countries are not the part of Schengen.
How many thousands it may cost according to you?

Wow mate thanks for such detailed explanation. Appreciate.
I can spend US$5000 at max. Do you think it would be enough?
 
Most of those destinations you listed are highly saturated and overrated. Paris is nice, but don't overstay. Venice is nice for a day, but no more. Those are also very expensive regarding hotel/hostel/food. If you want to have a good trip, make sure to put Switzerland on #1. I'm from Belgium and we have a couple of nice towns here as well (Bruges, Gent, Brussels, Antwerp). Eastern EU countries are very nice as well; but traveling without a car sucks. Maybe connect with some locals that can help you around?
