Hello, Three friends and I, all European citizens of different countries, are going on a Eurotrip this summer. We will leave from New York City around June 7th. Two people under 18 and two people over 18.
Our plan so far: Rome 3 days; Milan 3 days; Nice 7 days; Barcelona 4 days, Paris 4 days; Amsterdam 4 days; Berlin 5 days, Copenhagen 4 days, Stockholm 4 days; Oslo 4 days and end up in the North of Norway in Onoy (we have to be there by the 23rd of July).
Do you think we should get a round trip ticket from NYC to London, and then fly to rome?
Would traveling by the Eurail 1 month pass be the best option? Then we could take buses the rest of the time? We have free places to stay in Milan, Nice, Paris, Oslo and Amsterdam. How much money do you think we should bring? Does $2500.00 (not including the flight there & eurorail) sound reasonable?

_Any _suggestions or comments at all would be very very helpful.

Thank you Smile!

I am leaving from New York with $3000 for 48 days
Rome, Milan, Nice, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Bodø

It’s hard to say if this would be cheaper when there could very well be a sale from NYC to Rome. If you can’t find a cheap fare to Rome, and are willing to fly into one city and then to Rome, I would just keep an eye out for sales from NYC to any major European city that has cheap flight options to Rome. Dublin, Madrid, and Barcelona have generally been cheaper than London the last couple of years, but it’s difficult to predict sales.

1. If you’re European citizens, what kind of Eurail pass are you talking about? Are you planning on Interrail? http://www.interrail…
2. If you qualify for Eurail passes, try using the railsaver tool under the “bookings” option at the top of the page. A pass of some sort will probably save money on this itinerary.
3. I’m not that familiar with Interrail, but you canf you’re talking Eurail passes, I think (others like travel expert Rick Steves disagree) a flexipass (for a certain number of rail days that can be used during a 60 day period) is usually a better deal than a consecutive day pass. I would plan on train as opposed to bus for most of this. Buy point to point train tickets if there’s a trip not covered by your pass.
