Best route for Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Amsterdam?

I want to go the Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and Amsterdam. Whats the best order to visit them that will save me the most money. I realize that I may have to eliminate a country. Amsterdam however, is a must. What do you think?

Im thinking maybe: Spain-France-Germany-Amsterdam or Amsterdam, German, France, Italy

It seems that no matter what I do, either Spain or Italy will get cut, but of course, I haven’t actually looked up travel prices and Spain-Italy might not be expensive. any help?

First Time to Amsterdam - Which area to stay in

It’s my first time traveling in Europe. I’ll be in Amsterdam for 4 days and would like advice on which part of town to stay in. I’ve heard the leideseplein area is nice, but part of me also just wants to stay right down town to get the full effect. I’m open for other suggestions as well. Suggestions on particular hostels will be appreciated also.

Eurail selectpass is enough for transportation?

First time travelers here! My buddy and I are going to Paris, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Seville, Amsterdam, and Bruges this May 25 – June 25. I want to purchase the eurail 4 country 10 days/2 month selectpass. I don’t want to fly within europe. Ten days for eurail just doesn’t seem enough for a month trip, especially since we’ll need transportation within the cities. What about travel within countries?

P.S. what’s this talk about reservations for some trains? and how do we get sleepers? are they included in the selectpass deal?
