is 10 days enough to plan a holiday?

is 10 days enough to plan a holiday?
I just booked some holiday in the start of next month and I have no idea where I'm going. I'm thinking Rome, Barcelona, Seville. I'd love to spend some time at a beautiful beach but also walk around cities and see the architecture/museums and cool non touristic spots. Some barhopping or clubbing would be cool, maybe meeting some girls etc...
Any tips anons?

    If you already booked accommodation, sure. If you haven't booked accommodation, you are kinda late since summer is peak season. If you are on a tight budget you will struggle to find cheap accomodation since there's high demand but low supply.
    I'd probably spend just 10 days exploring either Spain or Italy, they are both so huge that you can't get bored. If you go to Spain then maybe split your time between Barcelona and Sevilla because they both have beaches. Just beware that Sevilla is the hottest city in Europe, be prepared to deal with extreme heat. Most shops close in the early afternoon and only reopen in the late afternoon.

      >accommodation
      I'll be staying at the hostels most of the time, I'd imagine they have a lot of free spaces
      And right now I'm kind of leaning towards going to Italy, Rome and surroundings specifically.
      Still need some tips of what to do besides seeing the most important things....

        >I'll be staying at the hostels most of the time, I'd imagine they have a lot of free spaces
        You are going during the literal apex of the European high season—there will be fewer spaces ten days from now than there are at any other time of the year. So I recommend doing a bit of advanced booking to minimize potential walking around looking for a place to sleep if the first place(s) you find are full. Particularly if it stays so hot—2/3 of Europe has been roasting over the last few weeks, not my idea of good urban hiking weather.

        >On that note, only masochists go to Sevilla in August even in a year that is not unusually hot—that city is near-intolerable in the summertime. I was sweating walking around there in October.

        That aside, sure, ten days is enough to plan a trip. Some people don’t plan at all, just book a ticket and wing it day by day. I have done that but always prefer to have at least my first few nights’ accommodations booked.

        It introduces risks—lodging and transport are likely to be more expensive and more limited, and harder to find at the last minute. But the worst thing that can happen is typically having to spend more than you’d hoped, and sometimes having to adjust your itinerary by a day or two here and there.

          i don't know man, i travelled around two weeks ago and italy last summer, you can always find hostels even if you pay a couple of eur more. it's only rarer locations with only 1-2 hostels that might be fully booked

            OP here again

            Yeah, exactly my thoughts as well

            Bring a hammock tent with you. No need to worry about hotels then.

            Nah, fuck that. I'd do it but it's too risky...

    So did you or did you not book something. It sounds like you have nothing booked or planned.

      OP here

      As of today I booked the flights to Rome for 6 nights. Nothing else, still going to plan what to do/see.
      Every little tip or suggestion is really appreciated!

      >start of next month and I have no idea where I'm going. I'm thinking Rome, Barcelona, Seville
      are you acclimated to heat?

      Oh yeah, it's fine for me to be in around 37c each day. I don't mind it and I can take it.

      This is exactly my type of traveling, just winging it day to day. I really don't mind walking long distances in a hot weather like that. That's exactly what I did few years back and I still very much enjoyed my trip.
      As for the accommodations... I was exactly planning what you said. Finding the closest and cheapest place to stay for the night and move on from there.

    You're going to suffer from the heat and it's peak tourism season so things are more expensive.

    If you don't mind paying more then it's perfectly doable, i travelled by car from Portugal to Rome and i booked hotels like the day before, but this was back in late april.
