If you don't mind looking at Amsterdam, I have done up something on Amsterdam.

Based on the route you listed, I suggest you approach a professional at Eurail. They are basically the Singapore agent for Eurail. Can look for Nam Ling ([email protected])
She helped me with all the purchases and train tickets. and recommended us our itinerary for France, Switzerland and Italy.

Since you are going that route, I will suggest a short 1 day at Milan, at least 2 days in Florence (beautiful city and less touristy), Day trip to Pisa and the Tuscany area and then another 2-3 days at Rome to visit the Vatican city, Colosseum etc. If there's time you can also train down to Pompeii.

For London, 3 days will be good. Catch a musical at Piccadilly circus, visit the Buckingham palace, Knightsbridge zone, tower bridge, westminister area, a museum and maybe consider a day trip out to Greenwich or Stonehenge.

It really depends on how many days you have for the trip! Good luck on your planning!

Hi girls, mind to share how much it will cost to go Europe for honeymoon? Let's say go for 15 days or more. I have no ideas at all and feel so lost to start planning.

Depends on where you go for your honeymoon and how luxurious you would like it to be.

Really Budget average in the various countries should be around this

$1k air tix (or less) - Turkish air goes to Germany, Spain for about $900, finair goes to Norway, Denmark for about $900.

$20-30 per pax for accom (in a very basic hotel)

$10-20 per pax for a full meal inclu beer/wine

Take buses in between cities will be cheaper than train

I've been you quite a number of European countries/cities and depends on when you go.

When I did something like that, I manage to spend only about $4K for a trip spanning 5 countries (Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and turkey) for 30 days. Included going for skiing and staying a couple of nights at resorts.

For about a 15 day trip to Spain (travelled single and stayed in one room Budget hotel) I spent about $2.5k but I covered a lot of cities and slept a lot of nights on buses.

Hope this helps.

Wow, that's pretty informative. Thank you so much. So it means the countries/cities I go and the route I take determine how much I'm gonna spend right?
Do you have any itineries to share?
If I plan to 4-5days in one city/country is it sufficient? Not sure how many countries I should squeeze in if I go for 15-20days.

Yes pretty much.

Some cities/countries can be extremely expensive. Take Switzerland for an example. Would say it's the most expensive of all the EU countries. Scandinavia can be quite expensive too. Generally the Baltic states are cheaper.

That really depends on what you like? Which are you more nature, city, history, culture, food? What's your Budget like and how rushed would you want to be?

On 15-20 days, you could probably cover Spain and Portugal pretty well.
I didn't go to Portugal but Spain had good food and lots of history. I'm more of a nature person so, Spain became a little boring with all the city and history. (Also, I was rushing so I didn't manage to go to any nature reserves).

I would amongst all the places in Spain, highly recommend Barcelona, Segovia, Granada and Seville.

Alternatively, you could also try Italy. Places like Venice and Rome are to die for.

If you are going on a honeymoon. Depending on season, Greece (Santorini, common honeymoon destination) can be relatively affordable during off peak in a really nice "resort" of your own and with so few people, you'll feel like you own the island. If you do go, I HIGHLY recommend getting wine tasting at santowines which gives you 12 wines and a small cheese platter for Abt 13eur I think while having an amazing view of the caldera. The downside though, places close very early during off peak in the rest of Greece.

Last... Just gotta gush even though Not EU. Iceland! I stayed in hostel so for this I'm not sure price of hotels.
A return ticket flying from UK or Copenhagen can be as low as $400-600. This is truly for nature lovers.
So you could do a 15-20 day trip covering Iceland,Denmark/U.K. (With side trips to Sweden if from Copenhagen or to Paris if from UK)

Hi all, I and my husband are planning a romantic trip to Barcelona, Spain. It’s the second time we go to Spain, but we’ll see Barcelona for the first time. I wonder if anyone here knows if it’s possible to rent a Segway in Barcelona or are there any Segway tours around the city? We did this kind of tour around Madrid when we were there for our honeymoon about a year ago and we both really loved the experience.
Hiya!

I just came back from Barcelona in June. Not sure if there are Segway tours as I didn't see anyone on Segway but the metro is really easy to use and near all the important attractions! The attractions are quite scattered all over the city so I would think Segway may not be the best way to get around. However there is a tourist bus that drops off at all the major attractions and is worth looking into.
