A little background, Ill be graduating from college here soon, and before I start my career I want to take a trip across the pond. My brother and I are planning to make the trip, were 22 and 23, and really only have a week to dedicate to the trip, I could probably stay longer and prolong getting a job but I may miss out of some good opportunities back home.
I've never been to Europe, and I understand from reading older posts and testimonials that it is FAR more fun and beneficial to stay in one country for a longer amount of time, than to skip from place to place over a short amount of time. While I would love to see all of Europe and dedicate a month or so to the trip I just can't right now.
We're not the site seeing/touring types. but that's not to say if we come across some in our travels that we won't stop. We're more interested in having a general good time, food, wandering, markets, booze, and nightlife things of that nature. A place that's popping with markets in the day and good for bars at night.
So my question is, if you could choose one country to visit in Europe over a week (7 Days) where would it be? And why? Tips, places, reasons would be awesome! What cities would you recommend in that particular country, and how would you go about getting back and forth from those cities.
We have been thinking Italy would be a great place to go to if we were going to stay in a single country. I have heard all the major cities like Rome, Venice, Florence, and Milan all are really great. Plus I see that you can take a fairy from venice to croatia which would be cool for a day maybe. We'd probably be staying in hostels or sleeping on the trains in between cities at night. It's all a lot to think about considering I don't have any friends or relatives that have taken a trip like this.
Any info/advice would be awesome!
