A first-time traveller favourite, The Whole Hog is an awesome way to cram in as many bucket list cities as possible. Our most popular 2 week interrailing package is a fast paced adventure taking you from London to Italy, via seven of Europe’s most popular destinations; you can sleep when you’re dead!

Trip Description
If you’re going to interrail Europe, you may as well go the Whole Hog, right?

This package is our most popular 2 week Interrailing route, and we can see why!

With our 2 week option, you’ll start from London and tick off some of Europe’s most popular cities in just 15 days! You’ll see the sights, enjoy some of Europe’s best nights out and come back ready for the next adventure.
If you wake up late in Amsterdam or fancy a few more hours in Berlin, don’t worry! The joy of interrailing is that a lot of your journeys are open (meaning you can choose any time train – no reservation needed), so you can change your plans at the last minute and cram more sightseeing in, if you prefer!

Start your European backpacking route in London, before zipping across to Paris and settling in with a café au lait and croissants. Take in the city’s iconic landmarks, before heading off to experience the famously buzzing nightlife in Amsterdam. With coffeeshops and museums galore, you’ll have the perfect mix of culture and partying to contend with! Next up is the cosmopolitan and edgy atmosphere in Berlin, the European city that never sleeps. Carry on to Prague for gorgeous Gothic scenery by day, and long, boozy nights in secret underground bars by night. Next, head south to classical Vienna, the music capital of the continent.

Next, it’s on to Italy. Travel overnight in a comfortable couchette (bed in a shared cabin) to make the most of your time, and arrive bright and early in beautiful Venice. Ride gondolas down the canals and get lost in its picturesque labyrinth of quaint backstreets. Finally, as you pull into Rome, prepare to be spoilt for choice when it comes to sight-seeing in one of the world’s most photogenic cities. The Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and Castel Sant’Angelo, are all must-sees, obviously! Be sure to tick off the smallest country in the world, the Vatican City, and spend the last few days of your European backpacking adventure exploring the historic streets, piazzas and palaces of Old Rome. When night falls, the city comes alive… Head to any of the city’s many unique clubs and chilled pavement bars, and you’ll be guaranteed a great trip finale! How else would you toast the end of such an amazing trip?

Itinerary

London

Start your trip in London with the Eurostar from St Pancras. Why not add a few nights here to see the sights of the capital? Prefer to fly to Amsterdam rather than taking the Eurostar? No problem, just reply to your quote email and tell us – we’ll adjust the price for you.

    Train to Paris- 2 hours 30

Paris (2 Nights)

Paris is a byword for romance, a synonym for style and the epitome of elegance. The pride of France and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Paris needs little introduction, from the Eiffel Tower to the Pont Neuf, bedazzling visitors and oozing charisma at every turn.

Highlights

    See the Mona Lisa at the Louvre museum

    Watch a cabaret act the famous Moulin Rouge

    Experience the colourful nightlife of the Marais

    Train to Amsterdam – 3-4 hours

Amsterdam (1 night)

Despite being credited with certain recreational pastimes, there is actually a lot more to the city than the stereotypical picture, with its abundance of engaging museums, beautiful townhouses and canals. Find out what makes Amsterdam the beating heart of the Netherlands.

Highlights

    Visit the Van Gogh Museum

    Discover Europe’s biggest historic centre by pedal

    Take a tour of the red light district

    Train to Berlin – 6 hours

Berlin (2 nights)

Berlin is the alternative, cool kid of Europe and a pro at being edgy. It’s how people dress, their liberal attitudes, the graffiti, the skaters and BMXers, the art, the clubs and the food. Berlin is also crammed full of fascinating WWII history around every corner.

Highlights

    See a section of the old Berlin Wall

    Climb the dome of the renovated Reichstag

    Go Discover the nightlife of Schoneberg and Kreuzberg

    Train to Prague – 5 hours

Prague (2 nights)

Prague is stunning, there’s no better word to describe it. On any side street or square you’ll find unique buildings full of colourful detail. The Czech Republic is also the home of Pilsner beer, with no lack of establishments to sample it.

Highlights

    Cross the enchanting Charles Bridge

    Marvel at the curvy design of the Dancing Building

    Try all the Czech Pilsner beers in the Old Town pub

    Train to Vienna – 4 hours

Vienna (1 night)

Vienna is crisp, clean and chic with its biggest draw factor being the multitude of classical palaces and grand imperial buildings. Whether you’re into your royal history or not, the sheer scale of it here will be encapsulating for all, whilst not forgetting the great bars and eateries.

Highlights

    Visit the Spanish riding school of Vienna

    Eat real Apple Strudel and Wiener Schnitzel

    Go to a classical concert in a city renowned for music

    Night Train to Venice – 10 hours

Venice (2 Nights)

Venice is nothing short of unique, built on mudbanks in the lagoon, having forgone the convenience of cars for the charisma of canals. Getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, and if you’re on foot you’ll only find small backstreets or large piazzas, not a single street in sight.

Highlights

    Cross the iconic St Mark’s Square

    Get lost in the alleyways and canals of the city

    Ride the vaporetto down the grand canal

    Train to Florence – 4 hours

Rome (3 Nights)

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. If that means indulging in ice-cream, pizzerias, cafes and trattorias then so be it. Rome will delight you with its eateries and mesmerise you with its monuments. Also visit the Vatican, the world’s smallest country.

Highlights

    Marvel at the ruins of the Roman Forum

    See the world-famous Colosseum

    Try real Italian coffee, ice-cream and pizza
