HELP!!! Don't know what to do

22 Feb 2013 Kate asked


Hi Everyone
It's my 21st birthday in May and to celebrate I want to travel around Europe. I will be travelling solo and it will be my first Contiki. I really want to go to Italy. I'm not sure what contiki to do. I don't want to go for too long but don't want to rush around. Please help me decide want contiki to go on. I live in England now but have spent the last 9 years in New Zealand and have also travelled around Australia and America. I can't wait to travel around Europe and meet more people.

    Allow me to recommend Berlin to Budapest for 12 days. I don’t have any set dates but May or June sounds like a good time to go. Berlin and Prague are 3 nights each and Vienna and Budapest are 2 nights each and it’s all 3-3.5 star hotels.

    I’m doing the European Horizon tour on July 18th, also traveling solo. I don’t have any experience with Contiki tours but it looks like they put “slow pace” under the picture of the tours that aren’t too hectic. I would suggest taking a looking at which of those tours go through Italy. The tour I’m doing stops in Venice, definitely looking forward to that! Good luck with your search!

    Berlin to Budepest doesn’t go to Italy.

    I would suggest one of the following:
    -Mediterranean Trail plus 3 day Greek Island Cruise
    -Mediterranean Trail
    -Best of Europe

    All these tours make stops in Italy, are under 2 weeks long and don’t rush you

    RJ I know that but I was being selfish and trying to get people to go where I want to go lol. For just Italy I would recommend Simply Italy for 13 days
