    Barcelona to Rome — fly as you’ve already figured out.
    Rome to Venice — train, it’s faster than flying
    Venice to Amsterdam — fly
    Amsterdam to London — probably train, if you can find a low fare on one of the trains with a fast connection in Brussels, otherwise, whichever is cheaper
    London to Paris — train
    Paris to Barcelona — flight or overnight train — however a MUCH better ooption is an open jaw flight (into Barcelona out of Paris , Amsterdam or London, or vice versa if it’s cheaper) to avoid the time and expense of getting back to Barcelona. Use the “multi-city” option of flight searches and see out “cheap flights” forum for more help.
