Me and a friend plan to discover Europa this september with the interrail ticket.
Our perfect route would be:Praha-Vienna-Budapest-Belgrad-Skopje-Athens-Venezia-Roma-Liguria-Monaco-Marseille-Paris-
As we are probably going to buy a ticket for 22 days
, we doubt that this route is realistic, if we don't want to spend
every minute on the train..
Hence my first question to the experienced travellers of you is: Is it realistic
or should we cut it right from the start?
Furthermore I'd like to know if there really are trains which are for free with the interrail ticket, since I tried a lot of connections, to see if there are free trains and to find out how much time the separate distances roughly take.
Therefore I used this planner: http://www.raildude.com/en/interrail-tr ... tions.html
But nearly every connection I found was listed as a train for which you have to pay a supplement, although I activated the "no trains with surcharge"-button. Even trains which are not listed on the list of trains you have to pay.
Are the trains shown with this planner the only existing ones?
I find it very confusing since there are so many different ones, which all seem to work differently, and I have no idea how to find out which trains really exist and can be taken without paying supplements.
My last question concerns Greece
. I already mentioned that we wanted to visit Athens, and then take a ferry from Patras to Venezia. Now I read that there are no international connections to Greece at the moment.
How should I plan my trip then, if I want to travel from Skopje to Athens?Thanks a lot for your help!
