Cheap Flights? Working our way from Rome to Amsterdam

We’re thinking of starting a 2 – 2 1/2 week trip in Rome, then making our way to Italy, Munich, Paris, Brussels with a day trip to Bruges, and ending up in Amsterdam (we think that’s probably the best order, but if you have any other suggestions that’s great). We thought at first that we would just take the Eurail to every city, but the gaps between Florence, Munich, and Paris are pretty far. Also, Italy isn’t adjacent to Germany, so it couldnt’ be counted on a 4-country pass.

In Europe for two weeks - what not to miss?

My friend and I are thinking about going backpacking for two weeks the summer after high school graduation. We definately want to go to Paris, Rome, and Amsterdam. What are some of the best places to go?

Also, what do you think is a good amount of time to spend in each city, keeping in mind that we want to see as many cities as possible without losing the experience of getting to know each city?

what to wear to mix?

im going to rome and paris next week for a week trip. I just need an advise on what to wear so i wont stand out as a tourist….thanks

Ferry from Barcelona to Rome

Hey guys, I’m gonna be taking a ferry from Barcelona to Rome, and was wondering how this process goes down. I’m traveling with a buddy of mine and it’s our first eurotrip. I found the website (…), and I know which Ferry I’ll be taking (Grimaldi Lines, Barcelona – Civitavecchia) but I’m not sure how the payment goes down.

We purchased the Eurail Youth Pass (8 days, 4 countries), and I think we’re supposed to get some sort of discount on Ferry Rides. Basically, do I preoreder the ticket online and have it shipped to my house?

Need help getting from Rome to Istanbul

I’m so glad I found this forum. This is my first trip and I’ve found the hardest part is deciding how I’m actually going to reach these locations. Looking at a map is fine, but in practice I’m clueless. So, eurotrip members, please help me reach the following locations. I’m open to any suggestion.
