Hi im planning on travelling europe by train for around 25 days this july and we are having difficulty with the itinerary etc.
We are wanting to visit these places,

Rome-pisa-venice-zagreb-budapest-bratislava-vienna-prague-berlin

Is this feasible in 25 days?
We have put them in that order as it seems to flow from one to the next.
We were thining rome 3days, pisa 1day, venice 2days, zagreb 1/2days, budapest 2/3days, bratislava 2 days, vienna 3 days, prague 3 days, berlin 3 days.
We are real novices at this and this is our first lengthy trip. Please can anyone advise!
Any help is really appreciated.
really want this to come through!

I strongly suggest - use http://www.bahn.de/i/view/GBR/en/index.shtml to understand the amount of time expended on rail travel between your destinations. Do not forget to additionally factor in time expended from accommodation door to accommodation door in unfamiliar surroundings. (You will not find schedules so far ahead, but use an imminent date as probably little will change with summer schedule updates in early June.)

'Is this feasible in 25 days?' - Do the maths. as I suggest. I also have no idea whether most of these places would have the same allocated interest/time value to me without a great deal of research.

Looks pretty good to me. I see your total adds up to fewer than 25 days so you've some travel days aside from the durations listed in cities, so it sounds comfortable.

I think if you go to Italy you can't miss Sorrento and Amalfi coast

The days are normal, although I can't understand, why you go to Pisa, when you don't go to any other part of Tuscany or to Florence. It seems for me a pointless step. Pisa is great, but as your trip is strictly planned, maybe it is better to let this for another trip? Also make sure, what are you doing in those cities? For example if you go to Prague, there are plenty of things, you can also do around it (for example Karlovy Vary). To be 3 days in Prague only, is not a great idea, but look a little bit around the city as well! If you have any questions, then feel free to ask! :) But otherwise, have a nice and safe trip! :)
