best way from barcelona to florence ?

This will be my first European trip
I’m just wondering what the best way to get from Barcelona, Spain to Florence, Italy ?
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !

while we are on the topic of travel times and best routes what about from Paris to Barcelona ? Would it be best to take the rail or fly ( I’m only dealing with about 15 days total trip time and about 6 destinations ) Wink Smile

Hostel advice please


I have been traveling to Europe before with my family, but I am planning a backpacking trip with my friends in the summer of 2010 and have never stayed at a hostel before. I have researched quite a bit, but I am still unsure of a few details.

How early do people generally book a hostel in advance? I don’t want to book all the hostels before I leave for Europe for 35 days because then I will have no flexibility with my travel times, when I want to leave for my next destination, etc.

How to go about living?

Hey everyone,

So I have been trying to summon up the courage to do this for a long time and finally decide to depart in either October or December. I work for an internet marketing company in New york and asked for permission if I can move to europe and work remotely since i pretty much only need internet access to do my job, and they granted me permission. My apartment lease ends in october, so im putting all my stuff in storage and moving to europe. The duration is indefinite, but my goal is to see at least 10-15 countries and as many cities within each as I can.

10 days in Spain


I’m a 20 year old American college student who spent almost 3 months last summer traveling eastern Europe. Now I’ve got the opportunity to spend a semester studying in England, and have decided to not let my plane ticket go to waste and maybe travel on my own for a few weeks before I have to be in school. Right now I picture myself having about 10 days to travel, and Spain and maybe parts of the French Riviera are looking like the go-to destinations, does anyone have any recommendations on things I can’t miss?

Spain transport: Barcelona to Valencia


I am traveling to Europe for the first time in August for La Tomatina in Bunol, Spain. I am traveling with one other person. Our flight goes to Barcelona and our hotel is in Valencia.

What are my options to get from Barcelona to Valencia? What do you think is the best way (cheap and fast)?

Also, what do you think is the best way to go from Valencia to La Tomatina in Bunol?

Please help! Thank you…
