I'm currently Interrailling through Italy, and in Rome right now, which is great, but I know I will be fed up with big cities in a few days.Can anyone suggest a destination that's a nice and cozy place in beautiful nature, maybe has routes for day hikes and of course is reachable by train? Maybe even concrete guest houses/bed& breakfasts/hotels? Or just a general region?We want to be in Napels later during the trip, so especially that direction would be useful!
I’m working on trying to decide what global pass to purchase but I can’t find applicable routes to create a potential itinerary. I’m starting out from Porto Portugal trying to get to Madrid Spain but all searches say “no trains available” although it appears to be a major route. What am I missing? Is it because I’m crossing country borders? My ultimate goal is to go from Portugal, to Madrid,Barcelona, Nice, Venice to Budapest. Any advice would be appreciated. Rob
Hello,we plan to do the Camino in Spain. We wanted to book the 10 days in 2 months. Our plan is to start at 27. and we have 6 weeks to complete our way. First question: Do we choose the correct ticket?We know our start date. But we don’t know the date to travel back home. Second question: Is it possible with the ticket to select the trip back depending on our needs?If we are faster then expected or we have to stop our Camino earlier, then we thought to make some visits of some cities. But we won’t know this when we activate the ticket. Third question: Is this possible. 4th question: can we travel within a country?We are 3 person and want to have each an own ticket. We have to use the TGV and must reserve seats. 5th question: can we get seats side-by-side?Thank you very much for the answers in advance Nico Hollmann
Hello! I’m trying to make a reservation for the Bernina Express, but in the Eurail webpage (Benefits in Switzerland) it says that the reservation costs are 14CHF in summer and 10CHF in winter and when trying to buy the tickets directly at the RhB webpage and adding the Eurail Pass in “Reduction” while adding to cart, the reservation cost is 24 CHF… Does anyone know which is the mistake or how I can get the 10/14 CHF cost? I´m travelling in april. Thanks!
Hello everyone! First off, I’ve never been to Europe and am attempting to plan a 16-day trip for my family in July. I am planning on purchasing a 10-Day Global Pass and started punching in the routes in the “Search Train Times in Europe” feature on this website to get an idea of travel time as well as which legs would require a reservation. Everything seemed pretty reasonable until I looked at Rome to Cannes (or anywhere in that area). It appeared that the travel time was over one day! On the app, it indicated that was about two days! Questions: is this accurate or am I reading something wrong I know that it may be an issue of which rails Eurail has access to. Is it common to purchase faster tickets separately for situations such as this? If so, what is the most reputable website to do so? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I consider myself relatively resourceful but am finding this process overwhelming, so I’m sure this won’t be my last post. Tentative outline of trip:

Hi All! My family are planning to travel from Dubai to Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin and Prague from 30 April-14 May. Please advise what’s the best way to travel from Brussels to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Berlin & Berlin to Prague. Which train to book and do we need to purchase it in advance? Would you also be kind to share your itinerary and tips for those who have visited those places? Thank you all so much and stay safe!
Hi,I would like to go from Amsterdam to Saint Jean Pied de Port in France. And back from Burgos in Spain to Amsterdam again. Are both stops possible, or can you only travel to big cities instead of stopping at smaller places? Thanks in advance for your reply.
Dear friends, I am planning to travel with my wife from Amsterdam to Zurich and stay in switzerland for 4 to 5 days and come back to Netherlands. I have seen night trains from Amsterdam to Zurich. If I buy a global pass, does this include this train as well ? Do I need to do reservation for berth ? With this global pass, can I also a get a discount in mountain train to Jungfraujoch ?What other best options do I have ? Best Kumar
Hi there, I’ve been checking out buses departing from Thessaloniki to Skopje and on the Balkanviator website I found 3 buses daily.However, I could not find any more information about which bus station these would be departing from, I did try contacting the bus companies via email, but as expected didn’t hear back.Does anyone know which bus station(s) these would likely be departing from? https://www.balkanviator.com/en/bus-timetables/thessaloniki-gre/skopje-mkd/06.07.2022 Thanks,Alexia
I’m getting a flight to Berlin and then interrailing from there, finishing off in Prague. I was wondering what the best way of transport is from Berlin Brandenburg Airport to the city centre and from Prague city centre to the airport. Is there a bus that would do this? How could I book this?Preferably not a taxi!
Helloo everyone ! I want to travel to Italy and follow the route of the travel idea “La Bella Italia”. So I want to ask you something. Can I visit only the cities Venice, Verona , Milan and Manarola? Or I should follow the route from the beginning ? Hope you understand what I mean. Thank you !
Hi all ☺️✨Just looking for some travel ideas - I am planning to go through Belgium to Luxembourg, and from there I have found out my friend will be visiting family in Geneva so I would like to go down there and visit her (and hopefully get some washing done!!)The journey from Luxembourg - Geneva is 7 hours, so I’d like to break it up by stopping somewhere (or a few places) for a few days en route down to Geneva. I’m planning to do Germany later in the trip so just looking for recommendations pretty direct along that route through France down to Geneva, from seasoned travellers!Thanks in advance ☺️
