HI EVERYONE,

THIS WEBSITE IS AWESOME AND IS PROVING TO BE A GREAT HELP TO ME.

I am planning a trip from May 25 2006 until June 25 2006 and would like any help that can be offered.

1. I plan on flying into Paris and from there i would like to go:
Paris-->Brussels-->Amsterdam-->Berlin-->________-->Rome

Would anyone have a good destination to fill into this gap???

2. This trip is with a buddy of mine and we are doing it before we graduate college. I want to see as much as possible. We are basically on a fixed budget as well. If anyone can give me some insight on how much museums, food, souveniers are in the different countries that would help me allocate money.

ANY HELP OR INPUT WOULD BE AWESOME AND THANKS IN ADVANCE :)

Berlin-->PRAGUE-->Rome

Ok, I think I got it right! What do I win?

There are lots of options. Here are lists of two airports in berlin (all low cost airlines)

Berlin SXF

Berlin TXL

I hope it helps. I would think of maybe copenhagen or maybe a place in Spain or Greece.

Greetings,
George

i agree with both !

if you guys want something on the way down to rom, prague is the place to be. e.g. if you travel by train, its a gooda nd easy option.

but if you are flying anyway or have the time to, a low-cost flight would be a great option to see something else out of the way. the flights are cheap, but you should book in adnvance via the airline websites.
you just have to think how to come to rome then ?? i know you can get cheap flights from several towns ( inlcuding berlin ) to rome with air berlin ( www.airberlin.de to check the rates ).

enjoy your trip!

I agree with Travel 100. Prague is a great city and very different to some of the others you are visiting.

You could go Berlin - Vienna - Rome. Vienna is beautiful but expensive.

You could also go Berln - Zurich - Rome. (although I personally wasnt wild about Zurich). Still a nice city though

Prague is the cheapest option of these three. And it rarely disappoints!;)

Thank you everyone. Another question is how many days should i allocate to each place i visit. I understand that you can't really get the whole picture of any of these places without months, but being a struggling accounting student, i have to think of the FINANCIALS...so unless there are free hostels that provide free room and board as well as meals and free transportation and entertainment im going to have to just go for a month.

I would like to visit as many places as possible

THESE ARE MUSTS
PARIS
BRUSSELS
AMSTERDAM
BERLIN
ROME

THESE ARE EXPENDABLE
PRAGUE
VIENNA
MILAN
MUNICH

PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME HOW LONG I WOULD NEED TO SPEND IN MY MUSTS LIST TO HAVE A NICE STAY AND ALSO TO VISIT AS MANY EXPENDABLES AS POSSIBLE. I PLAN TO GET A RAILPASS SO I NEED TO PUT TRAVELING INTO ACCOUNT EVEN THOUGH I WOULD BE FINE WITH TAKING NIGHT TRAINS EVERYWHERE.

THANKS AGAIN

I'd put Florence or Venice in the "EXPENDABLE" list instead of Milan. Milan isn't so great.

laxstud: I would also omit Milan and insert Florence. You can actually take a day trip to Florence from Rome on the train but once in Florence you will wish you could stay longer. In the case of Prague versus Vienna, if you choose Vienna you can also see Bratislava, Slovakia (50km or so from Vienna via train or boat on the Danube).

Three to four days minimum, I think. Personally I wouldn't mind spending a week or more in cities that I particularly like, because I'm not one for squeezing everything into a very short span of time.

Would you also kindly lose the block caps? :)
