Im planning on taking my 16 yr old daughter for a backpack trip staying at hostels landing at Pompeii, taking the train to Florence, Rome, Venice, probably Milan (expensive) for two days each place. Then going to somewhere in France for 2 days (been to Paris and London before) to then take the train to London to see relatives there for about a week and fly back to Los Angeles. I plan to stay at different hostels depending on where we are if they are available. I also want to see Switzerland if I can squeeze it in.
Any suggestion of doing this on a tight budget but still enjoy it? Right not plane tickets are $ 1700 per person. I appreciate every input. Thanks:)
