    What you’re looking at is Northern Europe/Scandinavia. I bkkapacced around there for a month and had NO issues with a language barrier. It’s really no exaggeration that almost everyone there speaks english (Except maybe Russia, but I’ve never been there so I don’t know).Just a gquestion, but why are you so interested in tours? If you buy a proper guidebook you’ll find out jsut as much information and be able to do everything on your own time. Plus, it might be cheaper. I’ve travelled around Europe both with tours and without them, and I think going without is far preferable!In Paris, absolutely use Public transportation. London and Paris have the easiest, nicest, most convenient forms of public transportation I’ve ever used. It’s wonderful.I lived in Londn, so I’ve no idea wher to recommend you stay (other than you might want to make sure it’s in either zone 1 or 2, because that’s where most of the atttractions are and it’s WAAAAY cheaper to just travel within those two zones than to add on any of the other 5 or so). .Paris St. Christopher’s Inn. I’ve stayed there twice, it’s wonderful. And they do have private rooms.Venice I stayed at Ca’ Danieli, it’s a very nice (but cheap-ish) hotel just outside Venice, easily accessible by bus. I HIGHLY recommend it. the room they give you is a lot like an apartment with a kitchen, dining room, and whatnot. The owner is very very sweet, but be forwarned that she doesn’t speak English. It’s hard to not like her anyway though. :)Also, just so you know, trains in Italy are incredibly good. They are easy to use and get around with. I don’t speak Italian and I had to travel around on them by myself a lot, and I had such an easy/good time. It was great.

    Venice is such a beautiful city with an incredibly romantic atmosphere. You are right that hostels can be a great option for many – quite affordable and full of character. I definitely recommend trying a little of everything when you travel because some nights require luxury and comfort, and other nights are all about seeing the true character of the location!
