Europe in 20 days with Eurail select pass?

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are travelling to Europe next May/June of 2015. We have looked into the 'Eurail Select Pass' allowing the choice of 4 bordering countries. We would be using this to travel from Paris to Rome, Rome to Venice, Venice to Innsbruck (Austria) and either Berlin or Munich (undecided). We would only be travelling for 20 days. I know this is a lot to fit in but we are from far away New Zealand and don't know when we'll be back! (we may also do a week in London either side of this).

The reason we like the sound of travelling by train is it seems you get to see more of the countryside, it is faster and there's more room to have a stretch and walk around a little.
So....
Is this true?
Should we use Eurail? Does it suit a short trip?
Are there better ways to get around Europe
Is it 'value for money'?
What are the down sides?

We want to be fairly planned in our travels (its our first time in Europe) so if there is alternative ways of getting round efficiently, can it be booked well in advance? We are travelling in peak season so we will need to book accommodation pretty early I assume?

Here's our itinerary in days

1 ARRIVE: Paris
2 -4 (3 day)

5 TRAVEL: Rome
6 -8 (3 days)

9 TRAVEL: Venice
10-11 (2 days)

12 TRAVEL: Innsbruck (Austria)
13-14 (2 days)

15 TRAVEL: Munich OR Berlin
16-18 (3 days)

19 TRAVEL: Paris
20 DEPART: Home
