I came across a tour on contiki called European Panorama - which covers London to Paris - Bordeux - Barcelona - French Riviera - Florence - Rome - Corfu - Venice - Vienna - Munich - Austran Tyrol - Swiss Alps - Rhine Valley - Amsterdam and then back to London. This is all done in 28 days for $4413 dollars. I'm going to be travelling from Sydney and I'm wondering would I be able to fit all that in around 1-2 months with a budget of $6000 on my own? As I don't really want to be with random strangers for a month. I'm willing to stay in hostels if its the last resort. I'm willing to eat from fast food places but at least dine once in a restaurant of each place I visit.

I'm just hoping to see beautiful places and take lots of pictures. I will travel by train to places, which brings me to my other question, what is the best train company for this? and if I were to buy a train ticket for Italy, will that cover every city in italy I'd like to go to?

Welcome to the site. Remember, as per the help center this is a Q&A site, so one question per post or people are likely to close vote it. Also as per the help center, asking subjective questions - "will this be enough" etc can be frowned upon. Some people on here hitch around the place, others want luxury hotels. You really need to break it down into separate questions with specific questions about what YOU want and what YOU will do, and then you're likely to get a lot more help. Sounds like a great trip, I'm quite jealous. –  Mark Mayo Jul 14 '13 at 2:06

Absolutely yes. If it does not include flights, I would even call it a pretty comfortable budget.

I'm willing to stay in hostels if its the last resort. I'm willing to eat from fast food places

Neither of these will be necessary on that budget.

I will travel by train to places, which brings me to my other question, what is the best train company for this? and if i were to buy a train ticket for italy, will that cover every city in italy I'd like to go to?

You want a Eurail pass - by far the easiest and probably also the cheapest option. But note that with this, as with any other flatrate ticket, it covers only routes operated by participating train companies (typically national monopolies or former ones). That's most of them, but there may be privately operated routes here and there that are not covered. Usually, it's pretty clear that those are special lines, though (e.g. rack railways that go up a mountain).
