Hi nalas, if you are flying home from Paris then don't you want to go from Rome to Venice, Venice to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Paris?

Fly to Amsterdam from Venice so you don't waste time backtracking.

We're doing the exact opposite, flying into Paris and out of Rome. We're taking the Thalys from Paris - Amsterdam, then the CityNightLine from Amsterdam to Zurich, Train to Venice, Eurostar to Rome.

I guess it would be best for you to take the train from Rome - Venice, fly to Amsterdam like someone suggested and then take the train to Paris. That way, you save time and don't backtrack.

Hi N,

Check out www.myair.com for flights from Venice Marco Polo to Paris Orly.

This is the most convenient flight.

It never occured to me that I would be backtracking... Ok, so I will fly from Venice to Amsterdam, then fly to Paris, or take the train? Do you think its worth it to go to Amsterdam for just 2 days? Thanks for everything

Hi Nalas,

It doesn't make much sense to fly from Amsterdam to Paris when the train journey takes roughly around four hours. I think it would be best if you train that sector.

About whether its worth going to Amsterdam, I can't really say considering I'll be in Amsterdam for the first time in September. Maybe someone else can guide you. We will also be there for around 2 and 1/2 days. From what I know, its a small city, and you'll definitely be able to cover most of it in two days.
