15 days Europe,

We will be travel to Europe in second weeks of April, we need help some advice on transportation. We will fly to Amsterdam, plan to take train to Brussels, then from there to Paris, from there to Milan, from Milan to Tuscany.

That 's our plan, but open for any suggestion. I do need some info of which website to book my train ticket.

Thank you in advance for all input, information and advice.

So your trip looks like this (roughly). I came up with the time frames.
- Amsterdam ( 3 days-really 2.5)
-Brussels ( 3 days- really 2.5)
-Paris ( 4 days- really 3.5)
-Milan (2 days- really 1.5)
-Tuscany ( 3 days- really 2.5)

I have yet to go to those places, but from what I've heard on these forums, it might be smart to cut a location. Maybe Brussels (I hear it's a little boring) or Milan.

This would be what I would do (cut two locations):
-Amsterdam ( 5 days/ 4.5)
-Paris ( 5 days/4.5)
-Tuscany ( 5 days/4.5)

Please, more experienced travelers, do chime in.

I'd drop Brussels and do Bruges and Ghent instead, and maybe cut a day from Amsterdam.

I'd drop Milan as a place to visit, except perhaps half a day to see the Last Supper. Take a day to see Florence during your trip to Tuscany.

If you've not been to Rome, I'd add the rest of the time there.

You said you are flying into Amsterdam. Where are you flying home from?

An airport in tuscany? Milan? Rome?

Wht time have you allowed to get there?

IMHO way too many places in too little time.

And this is not A train tickets - it's ultiple different tickets - one for each leg of your journey. If you mean a train pass - probably very expensive, I believe they don;t cover France any longer - and have you even looked at schedules to see how long it takes from one palce to another?

PLEASE lay this out on paper day by day - to see how much time you will spend getting places versus actually seeing or doing anything.
