I know this is going to be a lot to ask but i’m hoping you guys can help out since i’m really lost with planning this eurotrip. we’re planning on visiting 10 european cities in about 30 days and have the order all worked out. we just need help finding the cheapest/easiest methods of transport between each of the cities. in this order we will be going to:
London
Paris
Madrid
Barcelona
Venice
Rome
Munich
Praque
Berlin
Amsterdam
London

Any help you can provide with cheap transport between any of these cities will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I would put this itinerary in the trip planner and let get a railsaver recommendation on which, if any, railpass will be cheaper. If you find cheap flights for the legs Don has recommended you might find that point to point tickets will be cheaper than a railpass. This is particularly true if you can advance purchase from bahn.de and the other national rail company websites. The links to the national rail company websites are in a sticky at the top of this forum and under “transportation” on the “travel tips” tab.

While your average of 3 days per city generally makes for a reasonably paced trip you may find that all these flights and fairly long train rides really cut into the amount of time you have to spend in these cities. Don’t forget to calculate time to get to/from airports and 2 hour advance check-in for flights.
