Backpacking Europe. Boyfriend and Girlfriend for 2 months! Any tips?

We just got back from a 2 week trip. Started in Dublin, did London next, Amsterdam, Bruges, and Paris. We are looking to back mid April to mid June. What should we see this time? How much is to much? We are backpacking and would love to do hostels or Air B&B. So things and places budget friendly. We have Eurail passes we didnt use from this trip. Let me know what you think

Hi Brittany,

Wow! 2 months to travel in Europe is great. I love Italy and the rail system there is really good. Starting in Rome you could go south to the bay of Naples and across to Puglia then travel north to Siena Bologna Parma Florence Lucca San GimignanoSpend some time on the Ligurian coast, taking in a few beach resorts and Cinque Terrebefore taking a train to Bergamo Verona and Venice The great thing about Italy is that the rail system is super extensive and trains stop in many small villages so you can make serendipitous stops if you think the area looks interesting! From there you could travel to Croatia and the Czech Republic All of these countries are budget friendly but, have you considered doing some farm work along the way? It's a great way to pay for accommodation and meals and a brilliant way to meet new people. Checkout this link: 

Have a great time.

Don't miss Zermatt in Switzerland. It is so beautiful!! Annecy is a cute little town with a lake and gorgeous views of the Alps. Eze is a medieval town that is so lovely. You can get a bus there from Nice.

I highly recommend the travel guidebook Europe Through the Backdoor by Rick Steves. It is the best book to prepare you for an extended European vacation.

As far as where should you go, that depends on what you both like to see and do. Is it museums and history you like? Beaches & nightlife? Adventure & thrill-seeking? Cities or small villages? It also depends on your health and physical condition. You can certainly see and do a lot in two months, and Europe has so much to offer.

Tell us a bit more about what you both enjoy doing while traveling.
