I just received the confirmation on 3 and a half weeks paid vacation from my work. I am thinking about doing Amsterdam to Paris to Gimelwald to Rome, ryanair flight to London, train to Dublin (via ferry at Holyhead) and back home from there. I would be spending about three days in each location with the exception of Amsterdam and London. I have a couple of questions about how to maximize each dollar while on the trip. I figured that I would book the Thalys high speed train from Amsterdam to Paris, then get a select 3-country 5 Day Select Eurail pass/Or Global Eurail pass for the Paris-Gimelwald-Rome? My main point of concern is whether it would be worth getting the eurail pass. Will the needed trains for this excursion be covered all the way?
Planning on June 22nd to July 16th.
