Europa takes about four days to orbit Jupiter. It also takes four days to rotate so it’s considered to be a synchronized orbit. Europa is a moon of Jupiter, so it orbits the sun in the same period of the time as the planet, which is about 4332.6 earth days or 11.86 earth years.

Europa makes one orbit of Jupiter about every 3.55 earth days. Europa’s orbital distance from Jupiter is 414,000 miles (670.900) km. It takes Europa three and a half earth days to orbit Jupiter. Europa is tidally locked, so the same side always faces Jupiter.
