Europe in 10 days

We are planning to visit Europe in June. Our visit will be for 10-12 days. Can you suggest the best places to visit in this short duration?

Hi Lisa... Your question is very VERY broad... without some guidance from you an answer is impossible.

Do yourself a favour... choose one country (or maximum two countries that are neighbours) that suit your interests and desired activities, and then do some basic research on TA or with Google. Once you have a better idea of where you want to go, and what activities are important to you for this trip, then come back and we would be happy to answer specific questions.

10-12 days to see Europe is impossible... you cannot even see all of the best things in Switzerland in this time.

good luck with your research.

Good advice given! If you fancy Switzerland see it properly at leisure.

A good website to start with for Switzerland is the Swiss Tourism website


You should get some ideas from there.

There are bucket list of must-see places everywhere; in 10 days a practical itinerary will be 3 countries, maybe 4 cities. Unless you have a big budget you'll fly to a major city: London, Paris, Zurich, and then make a round trip from there. Those 3 countries are where I would focus. From Paris you can make a side trip to a champagne vineyard or see the gardens at Giverny made famous by Monet's work. London has enough sights for many days, and from Zurich look at the alps.

CanSwiss is right. Choose one country and see something of that beyond its capital city. OR combine one country with a quick visit to a neighbour. But don't try to see the most important things all over Europe in 10 days. There was a wonderful film about this in the '70s - "If it's Tuesday, it's Belgium" Don't be like those tourists...
