I want to go the Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and Amsterdam. Whats the best order to visit them that will save me the most money. I realize that I may have to eliminate a country. Amsterdam however, is a must. What do you think?

Im thinking maybe: Spain-France-Germany-Amsterdam or Amsterdam, German, France, Italy

It seems that no matter what I do, either Spain or Italy will get cut, but of course, I haven’t actually looked up travel prices and Spain-Italy might not be expensive. any help?

Well i think as long as you try not to go zigzag, it wouldn’t make much difference.
It also kinda depends on which cities you would like to visit as hamburg and Munich is quite far away even though they are both cities of Germany.
And unless you are going to Italy from Munich, or going to Barcelona from Nice(France), it will take quite a time and money to take train.
Budget flight is an option, but you should also consider Eurail Select 4 or 5 country pass depending on your how much and how long you will be traveling.
