We two friends are planning for Euro trip, I will be coming to Millan, and my friend will join me at Millan (coming from Paris). Can you help us for planning a memorable trip of Europe. The countries which we are interested to visit are Italy, France, spain, Austaria, Greece, Hungary, Germany, Norway. If you guys can recommend us some hostels and rail passes which we can avail. Where to stay at Milan for a day, as my friend will be joining me on 11th of april and i will be coming to Millan on 10th of April. Is the budget is enough for each person. We plan to leave from Paris after finishing the tour.
Your comment and suggestions are really appreciated..
It’s far too rushed doing 13 city’s in 15 day’s is pointless, You wont see anything. It will just one big train ride with lots of changeover’s. Are you set on finishing in Paris if so here’s a suggestion.
A route that might work could be arrive in Milan for 1 day then as follow’s:
Milan(1 Day) ->Venice(1) -> Florence (2) -> Pisa (1/2) -> Rome (3)
Then you could take a cheap Ryan air flight to Frankfurt
Frankfurt (1) -> Amsterdam (3) -> Paris (3)
I made few changes, is that seems to be fine, what normal expense do you expect for this tour. My flight to Europe and back are not included in this budget…
It still seems a bit too rushed to me. This will be close to impossible in 2 weeks. Please trust us on this one.
offcourse i am here , to take advice from u guys, how about 3 weeks duration, will that help with combination of air flights and trains. to see the good places over the europe…
My standard and “absolute minimum” recommendations (assuming 1/2 day of each city is taken up with either getting there or leaving) for these cities:
Milan: standard 1 day, min — the first city I’d cut
Venice: 2 or 3, min 1
Florence: 2 or 3, min 2
Pisa: 1/2 day stopover on the train
Rome: 4, min 3
Vienna: 2, min — the 3rd city I’d cut
Frankfurt: 2, min — the 2nd city I’d cut
Amsterdam: 2, min 2
Brussels: 2 or 3 (day trip to Bruges), minimum — a 5 hour stopover on the train
Berne 3, min — don’t go to Switzerland if you don’t intend to spend at least 3 days in the country
Paris 4, min 3 and I don’t particularly like Paris — if you like it you’ll want to stay at least 5
Final answer: does not compute for 3 weeks either. If you really want to “see” all these places, take a packaged bus tour where you’ll “see” them through the window of a moving bus. It is not reasonable to try on your own.
Cant say your change in route makes too much difference but 3 weeks would defiantly be an improvement, Although I may disagree with oldlady about the odd day here and there for cretin places it is a pretty good guide.
Can you guys mention the famous and wellknown places in these cities….
i have make this kind of Schedule for the tour.
Millan, Venice, Florence,Pisa, Rome via Train ( 4 days)
Rome —-> Budapest via Flight ( 2 days)
Budapest to Vienna via Train ( 2 days)
Vienna to Frankfurt via Train (2 days)
Frankfurt to Amsterdam via Train (2 days)
Amsterdam to Brussells via Train( 2 days)
Brussells to Bern via Train ( 3 days)
Bern to Barcelona via Flight ( 2 days)
Barcelona to Paris via Flight ( 4 days)
I have estimated out some what 3 to 4 weeks for this, some comments now appreicated..
As for the famous and well known places in each city, take a look at our map. We already have a bunch of sights mapped out already.
What’s the purpose of Eurotrip Points i can see with my name and with other names. what that means and represents?
jaward: see http://www.eurotrip.com/content/eurotrip-tokens for info on the points
oldladys advice is very good. if you are wavering on what cities and how long to stay, check back to that comment because she has broken it down for you very nicely…
I have edited alot in the my trip planning , is it appears to be worthy and realistic one.
it does look better although it may be better missing out Frankfurt, I would try and get a couple more day’s on to Budapest. I guess you are flying from Budapest to Rome? Wizzair do this. I would also miss a day off Venice and give it to Florence.
Your advice is better, i also want to miss Frankfurt, but the train from amsterdam to Munich is not direct its via frankfurt, that why i put a day for that place, in fact i was willing to add Prague in my tour list.
With the following route, should i go for the Euro rail global pass? , or just buy the ticket station by station.
I will be directly going from Millan to Paris, as two of my friends will be joining me over there.
From Budapest to Rome, definately i will try to get a flight.
i am thinking to add, barcelona in my visit , by omitting Venice from my trip, what you guys suggest ?
I’d agree with Davy; more time in Budapest. I was there last summer and it was great. There’s loads to do; baths, heroes square, cave exploring, castle, river trips… The weather was fantastic as well, up into 30 degrees on most days. It is also cheaper than a lot of places in central and western Europe if budget is a concern.
Venice and Barcelona are two very different cities. Venice lacks any real nightlife, while Barcelona has awesome clubs and bars. Both Venice and Barcelona have great sights and museums, but Venice is a very unique city that everyone should experience.
There is a direct night-train that goes from Amsterdam to Munich.
is this train you are talking about is the Euro rail, as i have plan to get Euro rail pass for my trip.
As far as i can see check website for more info.
