Each time I plan a 10-day trip to Europe, I struggle with my age-old question: am I over-planning the trip, or am I not doing my homework? Am I going to do so little homework that I end up at all the wrong museums at all the worst times and wait in unnecessary lines and end up eating lunch at some horrible tourist trap where the crazy lady next to me spends the entire meal lecturing us about one time she had food poisoning on a cruise ship (this happened)?
Below you'll find my tips and tricks to use the right method to plan your trip in advance.
One note before we get started: this process assumes that you have your location all picked out. If you're having trouble nailing down a destination, check out these ideas for how to figure out which city in Europe is right for you! And, of course you'll need somewhere to sleep, so check out my thoughts on selecting hotels in Europe. Finally, if this is your first trip to Europe *ever,* be sure to read my First Timer's Guide to Visiting Europe!
All set? Here we go! How to build your day-by-day agenda for a trip to Europe!
