Hi Guys,

Would love to hear your advice on the best route ideas for a trip from Amsterdam-Berlin-down to the alps-Italian coast-France-back up to amsterdam

I know this may seem ambitious for 14days; we don't have set specific locations, apart from those specified so any advice/ideas on the best travel routes would be great!

We are taking a tent and plan on 50/50 camping/hostels, so not too bothered about cities.

Thank you so so much!

I don't think that this is too much for 14days.

Amsterdam-Berlin and Berlin-Z├╝rich you can go by night train. Than you can go over famous albula and bernina-passes into italy - Milano. There must be a really good campsite in the alpes - Camping Plauns in Morteratsch.

Form Milano you go easily to nice/monaco and Menton, where is a really good campsite on the hill.

From there you can go as easily to south france - Perpignan/narbonne - where you have a good campsite as example in Leucate-LaFranqui.

From there you can get the petit-traine-jaune to LaTour-de-Carol and go on to Toulouse/Bordeaux and to Arcachon and Dune de Pyla, where you have a campsite too. Staying one night in Toulouse or Bordeaux can be a good idea too. From Archachon you get easily to Paris - maybe by night train and than back to amsterdam. if you have more traveldays you can go from Bordeaux to Hendaye/irun and than per night train to paris.

And buy your ticket here - so you can help those guys making this really good internet-device! :)
