Agree with the papillo machaon, also known as the 'old world' swallowtail. another reference is: http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/speci...

Hi Erika and welcome to Project Noah.
This species is very common throughout most of Europe but you also have another very similar species, the Southern Swallowtail, Papilio alexanor, to look out for. This lacks the grey panels on the forewing and has thicker markings on the hindwings.
