I found somthing that might be just your thing:
For 349,00 EUR you get a whirlwind tour of Europe - 7 days of travel on the routes mentioned. You take a comfortable nighttrain to another city everyday and get the day to spent in the city in question.
You could ask them if you can start and end your tour in Brussels. Shouldn't matter to them anyway.
I've made decision to go to Italy from 9-20 July... Now...any recommend for cities and town should I visit? I want to do some cultural and also relaxing scenic trip.
Oh! If you do have idea for where to stay (hostel) in Florence, Venice and Rome would be great! Thanks!
Excellent choice ! ;-)
Apart from Rome, Venice and Florence, you could pass by Siena (also in Toscany) and some other little Toscan towns, who are really nice. I also liked Pompei very much, but if you're not interested in Ancient Roman culture, that's not really the place you want to go to.
If you're catholic or interested in special churches, you could visit Assisi too : I liked it, but it can be just too much to see yet another church after the ones you surely will have seen in Toscany and Rome.
Oh, the places I mentionned above are not at all close to each other : Siena and Florence are kind of close, but Rome is about 100 km south (if I'm not mistaken), and Pompei another 100 km south of Rome (it is possible to do this by train). Assisi is somewhat in the center of the country, not at the west coast.
I can't help you with tips for cheap hostels: we camped mostly somewhere centrally, and then took the car to see it all.
Hmm..thinking of Siena too... I should do that then!
From Rome, I will fly to Brussels for 3 days and back to Bangkok!
Come to Prague! I moved here a few months ago because I decided to get certified to teach English ( a good way to live abroad and stay in Europe). I took my course with TEFL Worldwide Prague and I have been teaching in Prague since then. The city is absolutely gorgeous...and cheap if you have saved Euros or US Dollars. It is easily accessible by train from Germany and there are many affordable places to stay. The arhcitecture is breathtaking and is medieval, gothic and baroque. If you want to enjoy the nightlife there are tons of different clubs and pubs to go to, and so many unique out of the way places that you can find on a small side street. Seriously...if you are going to be in Europe, don't bypass this city. It's as beautiful as Paris and costs 1/4 as much. Plus Czech beer is great!
I'd most definitely recommend Prague - "the most beautiful city in Europe".
But I might be a bit bias since I was born in the Czech Republic, hehe.
I already made decision this to Italy but Yes! Prague is one of the place that I will definitely visit!
This time I didn't go to czech because I will need another visa, so I dropped the idea.
Thanks for you.. when I decide to go to check, I will send you message for help!
take your raincoat with you for holland
where are you staying in holland?
Really? More chance to rain during that time???
I will stay at a hostel called Stayokay as Flying pig is fully booked!
