Europe is not cheap. The above travel guides are good. Rick Steves will give you some good general ideas but the the lodgings he suggests maybe more than you want to spend.
try looking into hostels on the internet.
Make sure you fly open jaws,ie fly into Paris and out of Rome.

With only a month to spend why not spend the time on the continent unless you really want to go to England. Paris,Vienna and Rome are fabulous. Switzerland is all about the alps. The best area is just south of Interlocken up into the mountains. There is a campground in the Lautenbruner valley that has inexspensive accomodations.

In France spend your time in Paris and go to Versailles. In Austria pick what you would like to see but make sure to get to Vienna. In Italy don't miss the cinque terra, venice, siena,but save most of your time in Italy for Rome. Do a lot or research. That's half the fun. Have a great time.

Hey Josh,

As mentioned before, one month is pretty short to discover Europe. Each country deserves at least a month :) Anyway, I would go Paris, London, Rome first then Barcelona and then be crazy and go where your heart tells you to go. An other site that might help you with Paris is youloveparis.com. It really helped me when I planned my trip to Paris

Hello Josh

I have been in all those places, except Switzerland.
Whether a month is enough or not, depends on how much of each country u want to see.
There are rail passes. U can get a rail pass, for people who are under 26. Each rail pass has a zone and they last for a month. U will have to pay extra, for the boat, from England, to mainland europe. The cheapest option, would be to choose an interrail(this is what the rail pass is called) zone and fly right into the zone it covers. Each zone covers a few countries. Usually around 3.
I think right now, it would be worth, investing in a good travel book about Europe, and this will tell u all your options. There is no need for a guided tour. The books will tell u about trains, busses, boats, accomodation, what to see, money, etc etc.
The books usually cost aroung 25$, but i think they are worth every penny. The ones i recomend are
Lonely Planet
On a Shoestring
Rough Guide
Lets Go(this is the one produced, by Americans)
There are versions of these books to cover every country. Get the one that covers all Europe. They will be available in most book stores, around the world.
If u have any more questions, just ask.
Mel.
