Travel Guide: Northern Italy, Summer 2016

I finally had time to finish out my trip planning guide for Northern Italy from this past summer. August, for me, is a fantastic time to do extended European vacations and last summer took me on a road/train trip through Milan, Venice, Burano, Vicenza, Verona, Lake Como, San Pellengrino, Bergamo, Bellinzona, and a bunch of little towns along the way. November is the perfect time to start planning your summer trips- a big plus to our vacation was a home exchange in Lake Como that became our base for the second part of the trip. Check out details below!

3 Weeks in Europe under $2500

Summer is the perfect time to escape to Europe. I try to make it a habit and the past 3 years have been great. This summer, I’m exploring Italy and Austria, then spending a few days in Madrid prior to my flight home. With the rise of the sharing economy, strong dollar, and taking advantage of deals/points Europe is probably a lot less expensive than you would think. My total for 3 weeks across 3 countries including flight, accommodation and transportation is just under $2500 so far!
