If anyone has interrailed in europe for about a month, could they share their itinerary, like where you went, how long, would you do it again and such. I am planning a trip now and would love to get some input.

Europe is a famous destination for holidays. Hope you have got your tickets. You can check out various holiday packages in different parts of Europe, like Gibraltar, Czech, Netherlands. Cheak this http://www.eurobookers.com
or you can try searching http://www.shortbreak.uk.com
for different holiday packages in Europe. They are all UK based travel agents. They provide online booking also. I have got a deal from them various times.
Would be good if you could stretch your visit for a tad longer. There is just so much to see and do in Europe. We made it too Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Belgium and then the UK and had a great time.
Ancient Greece is amazing and the Greek Islands are party capital. Greece might be a bit far to go though. The cities I would definately make it too are
Paris in France
Madrid & Barcelona in Spain
Venice, Florence and Rome in Italy
All these places are amazing in their own special way. You should check out www.hostelsclub.com
as if you make a certain amount of bookings through them they actually give you free nights in Venice which are good if you can time your trip right. We also used www.hihostels.com
to book some of our accommodation although you need a HI card to be able to do it.
Hope this is of some help, Enjoy your trip!
hi, it's great to know that you are going to Europe. I agree with Brad that you must check out those websites. I believe UK based websites are more competitive and they really provide good rates. do check out www.kidslovevacations.com as well. it consolidates deals from travel partners as well.
Europe is probably one of the best destinations to travel. Look at a map and you will see that it is a relatively small area encompassing a huge number of fascintating countries. I would advise you see France, Spain, Italy and Germany if at all possible. However, eastern Europe is also lovely, with Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia. They are all lovely places and easy to get around. If you are planning not to take in a lot of places, you may not have to invest in an interrail pass. e.g. train travel in Italy is ridiculously cheap, but also very reliable. The wochenende ticket in Germany provides cheap train travel for groups at the weekend.
Great cities to see include Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Granada, Venice, Rome. Maybe try to get to cities for particular events. e.g. the palio in Siena, or the opera festival in Verona, or if you are going late enough Oktoberfest in Munich!
And stay in hostels - you can get them cheaply, especially if you are in a dorm, and they offer a great way to meet new people.
Maybe let us know when you have a bit more of an idea of where you are going to go, and then we can advise on specific places?
Try this site it has a ton of hostels all over Europe and the rest of the world. Definately check it out.
A month is a good amount of time, but I recommend extending your stay in a few places instead of wasting time and money on transportation to too many places. My favorite place in Europe is Barcelona!
