If I were you I would go to a travel adviser they can give you a nice package. My brother and sis in law went for a world tour for their anniversary. They went to 15 countries. With one They done with a travel adviser and it worked very perfect.

This is what we did when we went to Europe on two vacations.

First trip we did Amsterdam and Utrectht in Holland, and Bruges, Belgium - spent four days in Amsterdam, an overnight in Utrecht (we have a friend that lives there) followed by 2 days in Bruges. FABULOUS trip and I'd move to Amsterdam if given the chance.

On our second trip we went to Scotland for a week. Got a timeshare smack dab in the middle the country, and rented a car. We did day excursions every day and saw just about every big city in Scotland, as well as several small ones. We didn't mind the driving at all because the country is GORGEOUS and plenty to stop and do as you head to whatever your final destination is. It's my second favorite vacation we've ever taken (behind Amsterdam/Bruges).

I generally agree with Otterprods.

In my opinion you are trying to visit too many places in a single trip. I'd choose one or two if they are close enough to get between them by train in a half day or so. (ie London and Paris or Edinborough; Rome/Florence and Venice; Budapest and Prague; Amsterdam and Brussels; etc.)

If you stay a week in each place you can rent a flat which will be far less costly than hotels--in addition to less expensive nightly rates, you can also eat breakfast and dinner in.
