Ok i have booked accomodation and flights on my first leg of my europe tour i fly with easyjet from Gatwick ( i am a 36 yr old male first time traveller like this before) on the 14th of May to Amsterdam stay for 4 nights at Bulldog hostel.
Then fly easyjet to Basel on the 18th stay 2 nights
Train down to from Basel to Lauterbrunnen and stay 4 nights
Train from Lauterbrunnen to Innsbruck and stay 4 nights
Train from Innsbruck to Venice stay 2 nights
Train from Venice to Florence stay 4 nights
Train from Florence to Rome stay 4 nights
So as you can see i will be making 5 train journeys in the main plus maybe a few journeys whilst in Lauterbrunnen and Florence to neighbouring towns.
As i see it i can buy a interrail pass for either 22 days at a cost of £431 or 1 month at £550 so as the main journeys i have costed point to point tickets at around £240 plus a few other journeys won't come close to £431.
I have looked at a swiss pass for the 2 train journeys but even this wont really sae me any money so i figure point to point tickets are my best option.
My question is can i purchase a ticket in basel to take me to Innsbruck via Lauterbrunnen bearing in mind i will be staying there for 4 nights, and the same applies to me travel in Italy.
As i am a first time traveller if anyone can give me any precious information on backpacking in general or staying in these destinations it would be most appreciated.Thanks
