Thanks everyone for helping me plan my trip. Venice-Salzburg-Vienna it is! I will be flying from Delhi to Venice and back from Venice to Delhi in June (the tickets can't be changed to fly out of another city)and I have about 7 full days(8 nights) excluding the days of flying in and out.
I have three questions:
Shall I plan Venice-Salzburg-Vienna-Venice or Venice-Vienna-Salzburg-Venice?
I did some research and it tells me that for this trip, I should buy point-to-point tickets from Venice, Italy to Tarvisio, Italy and use the Austrian 3 Day 2nd Class Adult FlexiPass to cover the Austrian travel legs. The total cost for this will be $206 per person ($48 for point-to-point tickets and $158 for the pass). Is this the cheapest option?
Where can I get the train timings for planning my trip? I will be traveling with my wife and though both of us would enjoy the train ride but would not want the entire days sitting in the train. Therefore, we can also travel by night trains for the longest trips. Please suggest the possibilities of night trains on these travel legs.
