    Ensure there are no public holidays coinciding with the destinations that you're really wanting to go to. We missed out on the Vatican for such reason. And if you have a Sunday in Spain, plan ahead on what's open and what to do

    This is a really great way to see part of Europe either as a solo traveller or with a friend. We travelled with a fun and friendly group of people who were very welcoming. Travelling via bus made things really easy and took the stress out of travel.... Show more
