Hey! Im planning on traveling to four countries: Spain, France, Italy and Greece, but I am wondering if I should get the 3-country pass or the 4-country pass? Is it as necessary to get a rail pass for Greece if im only planning on hitting up corfu, athens and a few of the islands?? Thanks

maybe get a three's possible individual trains in greece should be a bit cheap... look it up, i think you may be ok with just the three.

It depends on if you are Eurail or Interrail (eg European resident or not) as the discounts on the Italy-Greece ferry services vary and can make the difference. From what you say about your itinerery, it will be cheaper to buy point to point greek tickets than use days on the pass, so it all comes down to the ferry - Assuming you are boating from Italy to Greece (or vv) you need to weigh up the savings gained with the pass to the cost of having to buy separate tickets.
