Rome

18 year old graduate taking a Eurotrip for the first time...please HELP :D

So…
Ive decided to start a year in advanced on planning my month long graduation eurotrip! Problem is, this is my first time traveling outside of the United States (blahh) and I will be traveling alone . Its going to happen during the summer of 2010 (July/Early August) Here is an idea of the cities I will probably be hitting: Santorini, Greece
Mykonos, Greece
Ios, Greece
Athens, Greece
Venice, Italy
Milan, Italy
Rome, Italy
Florence, Italy
This trip will be 29 days, I’m hoping I can spend a decent amount of time in each city.

Travel from Rome to Athens

Hi, I’ve been really getting into planning my trip to Europe next summer. My co-traveler and I are going hoping to see Rome and then move on to Italy — now we are scenery people so we love seeing all that Europe has to offer…what would be the suggested route to travel from Rome to Athens on a budget?

Sites to book Train Tickets

I was wondering if anyone new of some good Cheap sites where I could book point to point tickets from. I am traveling from Rome to Munich, then from Munich to Berlin, Berlin to Sweden via plane and back to Berlin, Berlin to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Paris and Paris to Rome all by train

Rome to Barcelona

All,

Would it be more advisable to take a flight from Rome to Barcelona or a ferry? We will have a eurrail pass… I’m assuming we could use the ferry as one of our “travel days.”

Obviously, we would like it to be as cheap as possible, and a ferry seems like it would be a little more “fun,” especially overnight. Any experience with this?

Any input would be appreciated. Cheers!

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?

Thanks!

Rail pass and ferry issues (rome to athens)

I am planning a 20 days trip between 11th May to 31st May….rome to athens route.

ROme -> Florence (will visit Pisa also) -> Venice -> Athens -> santorini
then fly back to rome for flying back home.

I tried railsaver, its states abt buying 4D greece-italy passes (but there is no santorini in the system…so i nv add in)

But am wondering, does the rail pass include the ferry trip also ?

am looking at this ferry:

First Time Going to Europe...would like advice

Hello,

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.
