    Is there a cheap airline that flies direct from Amsterdam to Brussels?

    Yeah it is really close so nobody would bother flying. Trains are super easy to catch between the 2 cities as people travel that route all the time. From memory it takes about 2 hours or a bit less to go by train. There are probably different types, i.e. ones that stop at every stop and ones that only stop at a couple over 9 years ago

    the best way to get to evil tower ?

    The Eifel Tower is easily walk-able from most places in the center of the city. The easiest way to get there is probably the Metro system. Just take the metro to Champ de Mars, Trocadéro or Ecole Militaire and from any of these you should be able to easily see the tower. Best view of the tower is probably from Trocadéro but it is also the furthest away. about 10 years ago

    Things to do in the summer? is Croatia a good place to vist value wise and stuff to do like swimming?

    Yeah Split is a very touristy town even in early June. Dubrovnik is not so noticeably touristy because you can disappear into side alleys and be away from all the busy streets. My advice would be to haggle with the rental people (you will see them waiting at the bus station or port and I imagine the airport too). You can find some nice houses to rent for a couple of days for relatively cheap prices. To swim and have a relaxing time, I recommend to stay in Šibenik, north of Split. Not so touristy and a great little town. You can go to travel agents in the town and they will find houses for you to rent there. I stayed in a flat rented out by the family who lived above. They gave us food and helped with transport and were really really nice. From Šibenik you can easily go inland to Krka national park! Absolutely beautiful place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krka_National_Park You can catch buses from the bus station to the park and then a ferry to the waterfalls. over 10 years ago

    Traveling to Northern Italy, landing in Milan. Any opinions on using Verona as a homebase then doing day trips by rail?

    I agree with Suzie that it is a better experience when you wake up in the town and don't have to travel a couple of hours to get there. However Verona is a beautiful place to get to know and it is perfectly placed and is a central hub for trains. So if you would prefer to be based somewhere Verona is the place to see northern Italy Two main travel lines going from Rome-»Munich and from Venice to Nice in France both pass through Verona. To get to Milan (West), Venice (East), Bologna (South) or Bolzano (North) is about 1-2 hours travel on a train (depending on the type) from Verona May is a good time to travel because it is off-peak and cooler. Italy can be a bit hot and full of tourists in the summer. Enjoy!

    how difficult is inter-country bus travel in south america

    Not any particular bus line, there are plenty to choose from and all very competitive. Buses are the cheapest way to get around, trains don't exist or are very limited in their coverage. Planes are expensive but the fastest. The bus system is the most convenient and the cheapest, during the off-peak season you can basically walk in to the bus station and buy tickets to go somewhere that day. I suspect that in peak season you might have to plan ahead by a few days (but there will probably be more buses too so not so sure about that) Have fun! You will be an expert on South American bus companies by the time you are finished :P about 9 years ago
