Hey everyone,

If I’m travelling from London to Venice, what are cool places to stop along the way (without too much of a detour) to see?

This is my first trip to Europe, and I want to absorb as much as possible. Smile

Thanks,
Kait

Give us more info about what exactly you have in mind. Are you just trying to break up the journey for a day or two, or considering spending a few days here and there while eventually making your way to Venice?

lol good point. Probably just breaking up the journey for a day – if there are worthwhile places. If not, I guess go straight to Venice. Just seemed like it would be a good plan to break up the trip and avoid sitting for an extended period of time.

any suggestions?

If you’re only going to stop for a day, I’d just look for a flight from London to Venice. The other “easy” possibility would be Eurostar to Paris for a whirlwind day or two there and then the overnight train to Venice.

How many days are you planning for London and for Venice?

Yeah, that’s what I was wondering. Like oldlady said, if you just want to stop for a day somewhere it’s probably a better idea to grab a cheap flight instead of traveling by train.

That’s true.

I didn’t even think about flying since I was stuck on the idea of the Eurail. This makes more sense. I’ll probably make Paris my last stop so that I can start from London, proceed to explore Venice, the Croatia islands, Rome, Barcelona… and loop back to Paris.

Thanks guys!
