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?

How to go about living?

Hey everyone,

So I have been trying to summon up the courage to do this for a long time and finally decide to depart in either October or December. I work for an internet marketing company in New york and asked for permission if I can move to europe and work remotely since i pretty much only need internet access to do my job, and they granted me permission. My apartment lease ends in october, so im putting all my stuff in storage and moving to europe. The duration is indefinite, but my goal is to see at least 10-15 countries and as many cities within each as I can.

CLUELESS :|

i am turning 18 next year and actually planning a euro trip with my cousin.
it will be our first time in europe.. we are so clueless. we need help with our itinerary.

We actually want to visit Italy first, then Spain, Greece, Germany, and France.

Any suggestions?
Like, how long should this trip be? around 1-2 months?
what cities should we visit?
how much money should we bring?

HELP HELP HELP. lol

Travel Itinerary

Hello, I am currently in Iraq and am planning a trip to Europe when I get back to the states. I would leave from Washington on the 9th of September and will arrive in Germany around the 11th of September, 25 days total in Europe. I have a rough idea of where I would like to go but I want to receive input from more seasoned travelers as this is my first time “traveling” on my own and in another country. Here is what I have so far:
1. Frankfurt, Germany 2 days
2. Interlaken, Switzerland 3 days
3. Gimmelwald, Switzerland 3 days
4. Nice, France 4 days
5. Cinque Terre, Italy 4 days
6.

Back from Iraq, want to travel.

Italy for Queer

Hi,

I’ll be traveling to Italy next month. I’ll be visiting the major cities like Rome, Florence and Venice, and also smaller cities like Pisa, Naples, Amalfi and Sorrento. I am just wondering how is the gay scene in the big cities like Rome? Are they as open and as “fun” as the N. American gay cities like Toronto, Montreal and NYC?

Also, what is the legal age of drinking in Italy? I’m 19 and I’m from Canada, so I’m legal here, but not really sure about Italy.

Is this possible on the europass??

Hello,

My friend and I just bought out plane tickets for a 24 day trip to Europe. We land in Mardid on 7/16 and fly back home on 8/7 from Paris. Our teneitive intinerary is as follows;

Madrid 3 days
Ibiza 2 days
Barcelona 3 days
Marselle, France 2 days
Nice 2 days
Milan 2 days
Munich 3 days
Frankfurt 2 days
Amsterdam 2 days
Paris 3 days

We are planning on getting the 15 day euro pass and would like to get some advise on if this looks like a feseable plan. The train looks like the best option for our travels.

Venice to Florence via pisa

Im planning a trip for next summer and want to travel from venice to florence but stop in pisa. from what ive heard pisa doesnt need a full day, what would anyone suggest as ample time to spend in pisa.
I also cant find any trains that go venice to pisa with out stopping in florence first. is this the only way to do it or is there a better more time conserving way to do it? thanks for your help!

Suggestions for first trip

Hi All

My wife and I are planning our maiden trip to Europe. So far, we think we have the broad itinerary covered. It would be great if you guys can pitch in give some suggestions for

a) places nearby that are maybe better/cheaper/ more worthwile to visit

b) some “off the normal tourist path” things / places

c) we are doing mostly rail travel. Any other suggestions would be most welcome here

d) and finally, some “must-do” things

Well, this is what we have for now:

Reach Frankfurt, take immediate train to Cologne
Stay in Cologne for 4 days.
