Florence - Venice - Florence

I want to travel from florence to venice for 1 day. just make a day trip starting early in the morning and then come back to florence late at night. anyone know the best way to do this? i dont want to waste one of my eurail days on this since ill need it more for when i travel from country 2 country.
I dont necessarily need to take a train. I heard the buses are pretty good too and since its not a long ride and supposed to be cheaper, i figure we could just do that. anyone know a good site to purchase those tickets? do i really need reservations for it?


If you’re in the mood for love, Dubai might not be your destination of choice right now. An English couple allegedly caught kissing in Dubai are facing a possible month in jail, while two Emirates Airline cabin crew were given three-month jail terms for texting sexy.
sentences are driven in an effort to enforce traditional Muslim values. So how might this impact Dubai’s tourism industry? Could it drive away the tourists who fill those glitzy hotels?

Please help me plan my first eurotrip :D

Hi everyone!

I’m planing my first Eurotrip and I’ve made a list of the places I wanna go to so far. I’ve got about 32 days for this trip starting in May. In June I start Law school so this might be my last chance at freedom for a long time.

I’m 23 years old, male, and adventurous. I love outdoor activities, partying, and also sightseeing (museums, landmarks, etc…)

Please help me narrow the list down to the top 10 or 11 places to go. I figure that’ll give me about 3 days per place, give or take. I’m traveling alone also. Anyway, here’s the list:


Traveling from Paris... Any suggestions?

This will be my first trip to Oktoberfest and I am so excited! I am going to be living in France next year so I will be traveling from Paris. Does anyone have any good, cheap suggestions for getting there?

South of France, suggestions?

Hello everyone,

My two friends and I are backpacking this summer and have allocated 5 days for the south of France around late May and early June, but we aren’t sure where to go exactly. Ideally we’re looking for cute, small towns with restaurants and cafes that will keep us occupied for a day or two as we travel around. We’re all still in college, so we would like places with some social life, but we are also on a pretty tight budget, making St. Tropez and Cannes out of the question.

Barcelona/Madrid Train Station Inquiry

Looking to book my train ticket from Barcelona to Madrid through the web so I can get a better rate. But I am confused as to what train stations to select from the RENFE website in each city. One of the options is Barcelona* & Madrid* (I have no idea what the asterick’s represent since there is no subnote at the bottom of the page).

Eurail vs. Europass

My friends and I will be in Europe this summer for about 64 days. We’re flying into London, taking a boat to Dublin and from Dublin flying to Copenhagen. From there, we’re planning on taking trains covered by the Eurail to Berlin, Paris, Geneva, Nice, through Italy, to Greece, Split, Budapest, Prague, Munich, and then we’re spending the last 2 weeks of our trip traveling around Spain. What pass is less expensive and easier to plan with? This is our planned route, does this make sense to more experienced travelers?

What's reasonable on a 4000 budget?

HELLO! A few of my friends and I planning to go on our very own Eurotrip! We’re juniors in college looking to let off some steam before our final year. I have $4000 to spend (not including airfare and a eurail pass, I’m paying for those separately and in advance) for 8 weeks of travel. Does this seem feasible to all the experienced travelers out there? We’re planning on taking trains at night (that gives us 10 free nights of lodging) and hopefully we’ll spend 4-5 nights crashing with friends we have over there.
