I am fairly unfamiliar with Europe; however, I know I want to see the most out of my trip. I will be traveling in a party of 4 Dec.27, 2014- Jan.3, 2015. I am looking for some advice on my itinerary. Below is my original thought.
Dec.27 Vienna (we fly into here)
Jan.3 Vienna (we fly out of here)
Is this a realistic itinerary for 8 days at this time of year? I am open to recommendations. We are planning to travel by train or bus once in Europe. What would be the cheapest, fasted way to get from my points A to B. Also, if you could elaborate on the cost of each train or bus as well as how long each would be, I would greatly appreciate it. When should I buy these train/bus tickets (what day or month) to get the best price?
