First Time Going to Europe...would like advice


I’m planning my first trip to Europe and would like some advice. I’d like to visit Rome, Paris, London, Venice and Amsterdam. I’m thinking the trip will be a total of 16 days — so I’m wondering if three days in each place is enough time realistically or whether I should cut down the places I want to visit. I will say that I have family and friends in London — not sure if I need to allot more time there.

Amsterdam and Brlin in 10 days, please help!!

So i am going to europe in 10 days! so stoked, il be there from the 17th to th 22nd(flying out th morning of the 22nd) Initially it was going to be only amsterdam but i want to go to berlin too since i am in the region. The plan is to take a train to berlin on th 18th and back to amsterdam on the 20th. is that enough time and is it worth spending a 100 euros on the train ride? My intentions in berlin is to drink, have fun and just a little sightseeing. What would you guys suggest? or should I just hang out in amsterdam for 5 days? also is munich closer than berlin?

Fall Flights for Netherlands cycling tour

I am planning a bicycling tour of the Netherlands for the fall of 2009. The idea is to rent a bike in Amsterdam and then circle around the region from town to town in a big loop. Anyway, I am trying to find cheap flights Sept. and on…though keeping the travel dates as close to early september would be best since weather will be a major issue if I leave much later.

I’m open to flying into Paris (and spending a few days there) or London and taking a train or other cheap airline to get to Amsterdam but I’m not really finding any great deals.

I am planning a trip with my husband and another couple to Europe in December. We are currently spending from Dec 10th-15th in the UK visiting family and friends, and doing some sightseeing/enjoying the nightlife in London, Birmingham, and Leicester.

Train from Prague to Amsterdam?

hi there

I am travelling to prague next week and will be there for a week before I have to go to amsterdam. I have been searching the web and cannot seem to find any way to purchase a city to city train fare. I know that I cannot travel direct ( have to go through germany with at least one change) but cant find anywhere to book. The one place I found it was £200! any suggestions? Am I better to get a ticket from prague when i get there?

Thanks Smile

1 Month in Europe (Oct 2008)

It has been a bit of a whirlwind in regards to what trip I am going to do this fall. I was originally planning on hitting just Croatia, but now my trip has been extended giving me enough time to do a real tour of Europe.

This is the path I was planning on taking. I am going to be there for about 4 weeks (maybe 5 weeks if I need to).

Quick overview:
Amsterdam (2 days)
Brugge (2 days)
Baden-Baden (1 or 2 days)
Munich (3 days)
Salzburg (1 day)
Venice (2 days)
Rome (2 days)
Florence (2 days)
Nice (or there abouts) (2 days)

Dublin to amsterdam

I am traveling through Europe her soon. I found that the cheapest flights from America to Dublin. I am going to bu a Eurail pass also. So my question is if I fly to Dublin, then stay for a couple days, how to I get to a city such as Amsterdam? I saw that the train is in Ireland but, do I need to pay extra to take a ferry to the closest city on the mainland that has the Eurail? How much would that cost?
