We plan to take the eurail to our destinations and hope to include the following countries: France,Spain, Greece, Italy, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Prague. Thanks!! Appreciate the help.
It depends on where you are arriving into and leaving from. When travelling through I started in Holland, worked my way down through Belgium Luxembourg through France into Spain, did a loop around Spain back into France to Geneva up through the west of Germany to Copenhagen, down through the East of Germany back through Switzerland into Italy. I flew to Greece from Rome, and got the train/boat through Corfu back to Italy to cover the southern end.
A lot depends on what you want to see and where you want to go. The Trains in Europe are great and doing overnights is a great way to save on accommodation costs. France and Germany can be tricky. When I last inter railed, only the slow trains were included on the ticket, and these trains are slow through France and Germany. It is possible to pay an extra fee for the TGV and ICE trains. over 6 years ago
