Travelling through Europe by train

Jump to last reply

Hello, my husband and I are planning a trip to Europe, mainly to Paris, countryside France and Italy, (Rome, Florence, Venice and the Amalfi coast). We are travelling from Australia. We may even venture futher into Germany or Switzerland if we knew it was easy to do via train travel connecting from France or Italy.

Neither of us speak a second language. We are aged 48/54 and are looking at a leisurley trip for about 6 weeks including London and Scotland, either at the start or end of our Europe leg. We are not interested in driving as it is on the other side of the road to what we are used to and would rather just relax in buses and trains.

Firstly I would love some suggestions on how to bunny hop over to Europe the best way as my husband will not be able to stay in a seat for longer than 8 hours maximum and we do realise this will take us longer to get there and on the way back. (My husband has neck and back issues)

For this reason we are not doing a larger tour as we need the freedom to stop and rest and travel at a leisurly pace. What I would like to know is how is the best way to get around via trains and buses throughout Europe. We would like to stay in accomodation close to train stations to limit dragging luggage all the time.

I have found a company called French Cottages which seem ideal, they offer self contained accomodation staying in different regions of France for a week, run by expats which does make planning easier as I do not speak any French or Italian. This is the type of thing I am looking for.

Has anyone used the company mentioned above or know of similar places in Italy we can stay a week such as the Almafi Coast and get there by train. Should we buy a Eurail pass for the 6 weeks if we intend to travel by train to most places?

I appreciate your help and advice and am open to any suggestions as I am just beginning to plan and have no set itinery as yet.
Cheers!
