Berlin - Vienna - Prague- Budapest - Venice - Please help

Hi All ! I am really hoping you guys can help me.

I am from India and next year April 2018 me and my wife are planning a trip to Europe . We have 12 days to travel and would like to go to Berlin, Prague,Vienna, Budapest and if possible Venice. We would leave between 27th April - 4th May,2018 .

We have nothing planned so first question: What order should we visit these cities in?

2. How many days should we stay in each location? We are planning to stay minimum 2 nights in each location.

3. What is the best way to travel from city to city? Plane or train?

4. Where should we stay in hotels or should we book studio apartments through AirBnB.

5. What are the major attraction places of each cities in order to cover in 2 days for each location.

Thanks for you help!

If you have 12 days, choose a maximum of three - bear in mind it will take a day or most of a day to travel in between these cities. Otherwise you won't see anything of these cities, bit you will become very familiar with the interiors of trains.

Hello harshit,

We are happy to assist fellow travelers, but in my opinion you need to help yourself and us a bit. Why are you selecting these cities? What do you most enjoy doing when on holiday? What is your travel budget, is it a value-budget or is money not an issue? And the top sites in each city - please take some time and search "must see" or "top 10" of each respective city to gauge the most popular sites.

The more you share in terms of likes/dislikes, budget, etc - the more we can assist.

Jeremy

So if you want value/budget skip Venice and Vienna. This leaves you with Berlin, Prague and Budapest which should be manageable in the time that you have, but all these can also be expensive in the touristy areas.

27th April - 4th May, 2018 is only 8 days - in this case cut it down still further.

Also maybe consider places that are not on the 'tourist trail', and which are much cheaper e.g. https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2017/sep/… -
