Ok, so I've done lots of research and have posted here before; however, I still feel extremely overwhelmed. I have two months, beginning May 2nd, to travel around Europe. This will be my first time, and I will be going alone. Based on my research, this is the route I have come up with:

London (7 nights)
York (2)
Amsterdam (8)
Berlin (4)
Prague (3)
Vienna (3)
Munich (4)
Lucerne (2)
Bern (2)
Gimmelwald (2)
Venice (4)
Rome (7)
Florence (4)
Aix en Provence (2)
Barcelona (5)
Blois (2)
Paris (7)

I haven't listed day trips, as I'm still researching the ideal places for me. I am striving to stay flexible, so I don't want to overplan.

Railsaver suggested I purchase a Eurail 5 Country Pass (Benelux/France/Germany/Italy/Switzerland) for $650.

What are your opinions concerning my chosen route around Europe and the tentative number of nights I plan to stay in each place? Any suggestions and/or experiences are greatly appreciated :-)
