omg..I am officially really excited. I have booked my flights in Europe as well now. I am flying from London to Rome and staying at the Yellow Hostel. Then I am flying from Milan to Paris, staying at the Square Caluicourt in Paris and flying from Paris back to London.
Then back to Orlando from London. Here's my question, in Italy I also want to see Venice, Pompeii and Pisa, How do I travel around Italy? Can someone tell me about a website ? Is it easy once in Italy to catch trains to these places? I wanna reserve hostel rooms as my schedule is pretty set but I don't want to find out I can't catch a train on the day i'm meant to leave. Also the same for France , I want to go to Nice and Versailles. How can I get around France. Please Let me know. Thanks!!

A really really excited soon to be backpacker!!

You live in Orlando? Me too.. What a small world..

How much did you pay for your flight? Did you check flying into Amsterdam or Brussels? They are normaly the 2 cheep places to fly into from Orlando..

lol, yeah I live Orlando, that's cool that you do as well. I got my ticket for $567, it was the cheapest I could find May17th-June 13th. I wanted to go for longer but I couldn't get more time off work or skip Summer Classes(not if I want to graduate on time) lol

Don't tell me I would get a cheaper flight to Holland or I will scream!!

Thats still a pretty good price. I think my flights where around 470ish, but I also book ages in advance (like 6 months) ... sometimes you see them for like 299.00 (thats without the tax) but you have to go in like Jan.. I take it you are useing ryanair or easyjet in your flights over there right?

yeah they had some cheap ass tickets for Jan-March.
Yeah, i got flights from EasyJet and I guess I will get a rtain through Italy and in France. I have decided to forgo Nice as both the flight and train ride are more than I want to pay so I will go visit other places in France.
