Travelling through Europe in winter time : plane or train?

Jump to last reply

Hi, My name is Dave from Argentina .

I am planning a trip to Europe for the two last weeks of March 2014 -.

My itinerary is:

-Rome - Paris - Amsterdam - London and then back to Rome.

My question is the following: I have been doing some research about the train fares between each city (from Rome to Paris I have no choice but to buy a flight ticket since there is no direct train).

I realized that a train from Paris to Amsterdam is a lot more expensive than a flight ( and Im not talking about something like EasyJet, I am talking about a British Airways flight)-. The same for the route Amsterdam- London.

Just to give you an example: A train from Amsterdam- London is about 250 euros , and a British Airways flight is about 65-90 euros (including checked bags) .

Also, I would need to book a flight or train from London to Rome (again, no direct train for this route)

But I am really scared about the weather conditions for the end of March in those places. How bad is weather in the places that I mentioned? What would you suggest?

I WOULD LOVE to experience travelling by train in Europe, but the fares are ridiculous. The bad thing about flying is that I have NO CLUE of how the weather is in those cities during the end of March.

Please, I need some advice :(

Thanks..
