    Gees you could spend 10 days in each country.

    Germany is great, please do a search for it since I've written loads about it. Bavaria is particularly beautiful with the Alps, castles & cities. From there Austria is magic with its cities & the Alps. Cross over to Italy. In the north the lakes/Venice/Verona/Tuscany with the culture of Florence/Siena. Rome is worth seeing when its not too hot, Down south around Naples is Vesuvius/Pompei, Sorrento & Amalfi coasts.

    Could take a ferry from brindisi to Greece, great islands though Athens might be a bit dodgy at the minute given the social unrest. Switzerland is a stunning beautiful country, more expensive than Austria. Can take a train such as Bernina Pass over Alps to Italian Lakes. Spain is supposed to be beautiful particularly in the south though I haven't seen much of it.

    Up in northern Europe, the Norwegian fjords are stunning. Scotland has stunning scenery particularly in the highlands & Edinburgh is worth a visit. In England London is amazing. The Cotswolts, Bath, Stratford on Avon all worth a visit. Last but not least my home country of Ireland.

    Word of warning: Don't try to dilute your trip too much or you'll be running around like a headless chicken trying to see everything and enjoying nothing. Pick 3 countries beside each other at most & enjoy them. The others will still be there when you return. over 7 years ago

    Agree with above: keep it small and tight. Most travel is very personal: my recommendation wouldn't even be a single country because you can't possibly do say Italy in 10 days. However, within Italy alone you could do say Tuscany (Sienna and surrounds is stunning as is Firenze) or Ancient Rome or Naples and the Amalfi Coast or Venice, Pisa and Milan.

    Other countries will be the same. Pick a region, go slow and enjoy.

    Have a great trip. over 7 years ago

    Wow, this is a community! Thank you so much! I had not thought it much, but you guys are absolutely correct, I should stick to maximum 3 countries and then visit others in the future. Ok, I will begin planning as such. Truly great. Thank you! over 7 years ago

    France has stolen my heart but Spain is wonderful and less expensive then bordering countries. Barcelona is our favorite but rent a car and visit other nearby cities such as Gerona. The lake district in England is like no other place in the world over 7 years ago

    Try to focus at a limited perimeter. I agree with other answers:Spain, Belgium and Netherlands, Tuscany or Bavaria. It will only depend on what pleases you most. over 7 years ago

    That's not a really long time so you can choose to either hit a lot of places and spend a lot of time traveling, or relax and hit fewer places. My favorites: Rome (city, food, architecture, people); Edinburgh (and Scottish Highlands) food, views, vibe, city, amazing; Bologna, food, architecture, art, city; Milan, people say it is industrial, but the coffee is unreal, as is the art; Cinque Terre, unbelievable beaches, food, and walks; Munich, so cute, interesting beer, art, food, people; Copenhagen, easy city, cool people, different food, really old architecture over 7 years ago

    Take a bus trip from Lithuania to Latvia (Riga) further to Pärnu, Tallinn (Estonia) and then to Helsinki, Finland (by the ferry). You will more than enjoy it!

    All the major Baltic cities are linked by Eurolines. Helsinki and Tallinn are linked by Lindaline/Tallink/Eckerö/Vikingline ferries. over 7 years ago
