This question already has an answer here:
I have some questions regarding the Schengen visa. I know you need to apply the Schengen visa form the country you either stay the longest or you visit first, which for me is Italy.
But what would you do or advice me to do if I can't get an appointment in time? I bought my tickets already (I Know it's dumb), and I am suppose to fly out by June 28th, but the Italy embassy doesn't have any. appointment open until July. What should I do here? I contacted the Italian embassy, but I haven't heard anything back from them yet.
