This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Welcome to travel.SE. What's your citizenship? – Karlson Mar 4 '14 at 21:30

1 Answer 1

Most European countries I believe will let you stay for 90 days out of 180 consecutive days, so that leaves you about 3 months before you can go back to Europe. I'm assuming you're American

Bear in mind this might be dependent on the treaty Schengen countries have with your country of citizenship

What if she is not? – Karlson Mar 4 '14 at 21:33
@Karlson yep, I just added a note about that, let's see what she answers, we'll find something more suitable if not. My experience is that it usually is 180d between western countries – blackbird57 Mar 4 '14 at 21:35
So why not wait for the OP to add citizenship information and then answer the question in the more precise manner? – Karlson Mar 4 '14 at 21:42
In fact it does not matter, apart from extremely rare corner cases (diplomats or refugees with a limited territoriality visa for Italy or these kinds of things), there are only two possibilities: either the person can stay permanently (e.g. EU citizen or non-EU spouse of a EU citizen) or she is making a short stay in the Schengen area (as a resident from another Schengen country or because she has a citizenship that allows visa-free short stays) and the answer is correct. – Relaxed Mar 4 '14 at 21:44
Also, we know from the question that she can visit without a visa but only stay 90 days so if she is not a US citizen, she is from another country for which the exact same rules apply. – Relaxed Mar 4 '14 at 21:48
