Student's travelling to a budget

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am new to this site so I hope I am doing the right thing here...

Two 21 year old students (will have just graduated as teachers - wahoo!) have decided to celebrate the end of uni to go travelling in Europe for 1 month.

We would ideally like to go to Italy (fly in to Florence) and then from their travel via inter-rail to Switzerland, across France, down into Spain (to Barcelona) and then back across France towards a Ferry which will get us back to England.

We have friends/relatives in Florence and Barcelona.

As we have never done anything like this before, I am writing on here in the hope that some of you could give us some excellent tips and advice about our trip. Is this a good route considering the various relatives? And how can we eat cheap in places such as Florence!!?

Thanks in advanced.
