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.
My film “Gondola With the Wind” can be seen on the web if you have a high speed internet connection. The movie begins in Italy with Rome, Pisa, Florence, and Venice. It then features Vienna (Austria), glorious Prague (Czech Republic), Poland (including Warsaw & Auschwitz), Ukraine, and Budapest (Hungary).

I am interested in buying a France-Germany-Italy Eurail pass and going from Venice-Munich by train with it. I realize I would have to pass through Austria for this, however I once read somewhere that Salzburg, Austria is included in with Germany’s railpass, and this would be the city that the train would pass through, I imagine. Does this mean I can use the pass without having to buy an extra part to cover the Austria leg?
The Salzburg being incl.

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).
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)
