I would like to know if someone has used an Interrail or Eurail pass. Im planning to travel across Europe during a month going trough Barcelona, Turin, Milan, Budapest, Belgrade, Kotor, Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar, Prague, Amsterdam and then returning to Barcelona.
I can buy a Interrail pass but i read in the web page that you cant use it in the country were you reside. I live in Uruguay, South America but i also got Italian citizenship does this mean that i cant use it in Italy?.
In the forums in here i have read that is not convenient to buy a train pass.
What do you think?
Help please.

I am leaving from Montevideo, Uruguay with $5000 for 32 days
Barcelona, Turin, Milan, Budapest, Belgrade, Kotor, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split, Prague, Amsterdam, Barcelona

1. What does the trip planner say about a eurail pass? That would be a good place to start in determining if a pass is a good idea for you. You can compare the price of the recommended Eurail pass to an Interrail pass to see which, if any, pass works best for you.
2. Interrail is for citizens/residents of Europe. As an Italian citizen you would not be able to use an interrail pass in Italy and the price of the pass would be based on Italy as your home country.
3. Eurail is for folks who are not citizens or long term residents of European countries.
4. A pass is generally very convenient. You just hop on the train and your pass serves as your ticket. The convenience factor is less if you choose to take a train that requires a reservation since you have to buy a reservation at the train station. In most places that’s pretty easy, but it can be kind of a hassle in Italy.
