My friend and I are hoping to travel round europe in July for 2 weeks. Were unsure how to plan it really. We defiantely want to include Italy to are trip other than that were not to fussed on where we go. Would we have to get a flight to Italy then get the trains round? Would we book are hostels before we leave or when we get there? Has anyone already got a route we could follow? Thanks
Tell me a bit more. Where do you come from, how do you fly in?
What countries do you like to visit? Budget or just low cost?
Hi we want to fly from manchester. We would like to visit Rome Venice and Milan and low cost.
if you are travelling around Europe Rome isn't on the way and a trip between Rome, Venice and Milano will take at least a week.
if you tell me something more about your idea i can better help you.
Italy has very good trains!
Rome - Milan is about 3 hrs, Rome - Venice also 3 hrs and Venice - Milan is about 2 hrs.
I suggest to fly into Milan or Rome (look for cheapest price) and from there take the train. You don't need a car anyway in the cities.
Perhaps Cinque Terra is an option too? look for Sestri Levante and take a look at my pics too.
Book your hostels ahead, especially in Rome and Cinque Terra.
1. Manchester - Roma (when you fly Ryanair do NOT by bus tickets in the plane; just go outside the arrivals and take the city bus in stead of waiting for Ryanair bus with 200 people!)
5. Roma - Venice
7. Venice - Milano
10. Milano - Sestri Levante
11. Sestri Levante
12. Sestri Levante - Roma

Have you thought about going to Eastern Europe? Maybe Poland? What do you think?
Thanks for the advice on booking hostels. I was just going to wing it!
