Hi, I recently end my studies and i'm planning a trip around europe between late february to late april. I already know England, so i'm not considering it. Here's a rough itinerary:

22 feb – Geneva (I have relatives - skiing)
Rome (Assisi)
Florence (Bologna)
Venice
Ljubljana (Slovenia in general)
Budapest
Vienna
Cracow
Prague
Berlin
Amsterdam
Brugge
Paris
Geneva
Barcelona
Madrid
20 april – back home

Do I'm missing something special. Should I consider Croatia… zagreb, split, dubrovnik, others?. Any ideas for transportation… I was thinking on Eurail global pass and point-to-point tickets for Slovenia, Czech rep, and Poland.
Any comments are welcome, thx.

thats a long list........ how long do you intend on stayin in each place?

Rome, i think, you can do in 3 days, 2 if youre in a hurry.. but i didnt like rome much...
amsterdam i think 2 or 3 days...
brugge 1 day (go overmight maybe)
paris 4 or 5 days
berlin 3 days
madrid 2 or 3 days (you have to include a day trip to toledo and/or segovia)

I would switch the order a bit. It should be better to go Vienna-Prague-Cracow-Berlin. Or maybe skip Cracow since it is a bit out of your way and exchange it for Dresden. Dresden is halfway between Prague and Berlin and well worth a visit.

Yeah agree, ur mixing west and east europe in only a few months. Maybe do a proper east europe trip in the future and focus more on west euro cities. Dresden is a good option. There are some nice towns in Switzerland, u have Geneva twice - once is enuff! And u should see more or France than just Paris. Normandy and Brittany are great and not far from Belgium as you approach Paris.
