Interrail: London - Europe

pink_candy13 @ 09-10-2008 19:37

SO I found out I am not going back home (canada) for christmas and was looking to plan a interrail trip. First is it safe/okay to do interrail for a female traveling alone?

My route -

I was looking to go London - Paris (eurostar) and spend a few nights at a friends house then travel to Geneva (and perhaps Lausanne), Milan, Pisa, Florence, Rome, and perhaps Naples, then up to Venice and head back to London.

I have from December 20th - January 4th to do it in.... do you think it is do able? I dont plan on making any real stops on the way home except maybe Paris.

Also given my time frame and the fact it will be christmas/winter does anyone else have any other suggestions on routes that would be better.

Any ideas would be great help! I want to see as much of europe as possible while i am here (over the next year) so am open to pretty much any countries.

Information Eurostar:

Information ferry UK to France (to save money):

Night trains France to Italy and back (so you will safe time):

Train connections in Europe:

Pay attention to the train supplements in Italy:

For the Christmas days and new years eve I recommend you to buy reservations in advance, especially for the TGV in France:

And as cities (it is always a personal decision if you like it or not)... I also love Zurich (Switzerland) and maybe have a stop (not overnight) at the Cote d'Azur (St. Tropez, Cannes, ...) if you are travelling from France to Italy. 🙂
