Most Europe package tours will allow you to truly enjoy around 5 to 10 places, depending on the amount of time you’ll be spending in the continent.
Have a Plan
Travelling to Europe requires some meticulous planning – especially if you intend on visiting a number of countries. Shortlist the places you want to travel the most. Keep your budget in mind and decide on the accommodation spots. You can easily travel through Europe with the help of a Schengen Visa. Make sure you check all the rules before you apply, and remember to apply is advance – it takes anywhere between 10 to 15 days to get a visa. Read about the local culture and common phrases of the places on your bucket list.
