Where to Start Your European Trip
Depending on your best flight option, your Europe trip itinerary might be in a different order.
We flew in London, England and out of Munich, Germany. With the use of speed trains, it was easy to travel between European countries. Start with your flights and then build your trip from there. At the start of planning this trip, we only planned on going to Paris and Germany, but England got added with cheap flights. Speed trains made it easy to add Belgium and Amsterdam. And well, Switzerland is on the way to Germany, so why not stay a couple of nights?
The Best Time of Year to Visit Europe
I recommend to travel to Europe during the shoulder seasons of April – May and September – October. The perfect mix of fewer crowds and pleasant weather. We went in the end of September and it was perfect.
The Best Way to Get Around Europe
No need to rent a car for this trip. Trains make it easy to get around this country. I recommend buying your ticket online. Rail Ninja is an excellent source to get train timetables. You can book your tickets or you can purchase them direct from the carrier.
