ok i need yer help. there three of us and we heading for three weeks across europe. we dont plan on buying the interrail ticket, just going to use domestic lines.

we have decided on a few cities that we must go to see , barcelona prague rome venice.. but for now thats it

can anyone recomend any other cities that they've been to.

the type of holiday we are looking for is a mix between seeing all the cultural aspect of the city along with the nightlife.

and any and all other suggestions as regards what to see and what to do, what hostels to stay in, what trains to use etc. would all be greatly appreciated..

And how are you going to get from A to B without going completely broke over all those train tickets? Barcelona, Prague, Rome, Venice - do you have any idea what this is going to cost you if you go by rail? Domestic lines, my arse. Are you Harry Potter, able to apparate from city to city? Of course, if you have a set of budget flights already booked, it makes perfect sense, but otherwise...

And you want to add more cities. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

If I was you, I would concentrate on one or two regions, like doing Italy and Greece with Interrail. Or Austria, Bratislava, Prague, Germany.

I agree with maia. Those domestic lines aren't only going to cost you a fortune, but it's gone take you much time to travel from one place to another (according to the location of the cities you've chosen!!). I hope you'll be flying a part but still then, it will cost a lot! I would also, like maia suggested, limit it to certain regions. It will be much cheaper, relaxer and the time you would spent on travelling, you can spend it then at visiting another city. Don't forget either that these big cities are rather expensive, certainly if you wanna pick some musea (prices!) and bars....and you can easily spend a few days in each (venice maybe 2 days). I've been visiting Barcelona last november (4 days)and I really loved it!!
And why not Brussels or Brugge or Gent? ;)
