    Changed reply in topic of Need advice on train tickets going from Rome to Assisi, Florence, Venice, Milan, Paris (express), Lourdes, Toulouse and flight back to Rome by Jeff to Hi Scott,<br /><br />For that much travel, you would want to purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, we recommend purchasing the pass for 1st class.<br /><br /><b><u>About Rail Passes</u></b><br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover ticket costs. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. If you were to purchase regular point-to-point tickets (instead of a rail pass), the value of any necessary reservations would still be considered/embedded into those costs. Therefore, a rail pass still often works out to be the most economical option for travelers taking multiple trains while in Europe.<br /><br />Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In much of Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, with regard to your itinerary, reservations would be required on most of your trips.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching a route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br />For trains that do not accept reservations, there is nothing you need to book, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board. On such trains, you would just hop on and show your pass. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for many unreserved trains. Generally, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would have to be sure to leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Rome-Naples with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />For travel between Rome and Naples, you would take either a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciarossa-7590" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Frecciarossa</a> high-speed train or a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciargento-7587" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Frecciargento</a> high-speed train. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />You would do one search for your outbound: Rome to Naples<br /><br />And another search for your return back up to Rome: Naples to Rome<br /><br />When booking the reservations, remember to tell our system that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Rome to Assisi with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Rome to Assisi, there are direct regional trains (Regionale Veloce). These trains do not accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature on our homepage to view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Rome to Assisi. When doing this search, just remember to leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Assisi to Florence with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Assisi to Florence, most trains are regional trains (Regionale Veloce), which do not accept reservations. Therefore, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> would once again be all you'll need to board. For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature on our homepage to view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Assisi to Florence. When doing this search, again remember to leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Florence to Venice with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Florence to Venice, you would take either a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciarossa-7590" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Frecciarossa</a> high-speed train or a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciargento-7587" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Frecciargento</a> high-speed train. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. When you go to purchase the reservations from Florence to Venice on our website, be sure to indicate that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Milan with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Venice to Milan, you would take a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciarossa-7590" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Frecciarossa</a> high-speed trains, so reservations will be required for this trip, as well.

Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Milan to Paris with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The night train from Milan to Paris is the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thello-night-trains-7539" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Thello Night train</a>, which is technically not covered by any rail pass; however, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> does enable a 20% discount for tickets on this train.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thello-night-trains-7539" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Thello Night train</a> from Milan to Paris carries single compartments, double compartments, triple compartments (T3), 4-berth couchettes (T4), and 6-berth couchettes (T6).

    Changed reply in topic of Need advice on train tickets going from Rome to Assisi, Florence, Venice, Milan, Paris (express), Lourdes, Toulouse and flight back to Rome by Jeff to Hi Scott,<br /><br />For that much travel, you would want to purchase the Eurail Global Pass. For the Eurail Global Pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>About Rail Passes</u></b><br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover ticket costs. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. If you were to purchase regular point-to-point tickets (instead of a rail pass), the value of any necessary reservations would still be considered/embedded into those costs. Therefore, a rail pass still often works out to be the most economical option for travelers taking multiple trains while in Europe.<br /><br />Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In much of Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, with regard to your itinerary, reservations would be required on most of your trips.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching a route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br />For trains that do not accept reservations, there is nothing you need to book, so the Eurail Global Pass is all you would need to board. On such trains, you would just hop on and show your pass. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for many unreserved trains. Generally, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would have to be sure to leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Rome-Naples with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />For travel between Rome and Naples, you would take either a Frecciarossa high-speed train or a Frecciargento high-speed train. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />You would do one search for your outbound: Rome to Naples<br /><br />And another search for your return back up to Rome: Naples to Rome<br /><br />When booking the reservations, remember to tell our system that you'll be traveling with the Eurail Global Pass. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Rome to Assisi with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Rome to Assisi, there are direct regional trains (Regionale Veloce). These trains do not accept reservations, so the Eurail Global Pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature on our homepage to view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Rome to Assisi. When doing this search, just remember to leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Assisi to Florence with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Assisi to Florence, most trains are regional trains (Regionale Veloce), which do not accept reservations. Therefore, the Eurail Global Pass would once again be all you'll need to board. For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature on our homepage to view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Assisi to Florence. When doing this search, again remember to leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Florence to Venice with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Florence to Venice, you would take either a Frecciarossa high-speed train or a Frecciargento high-speed train. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. When you go to purchase the reservations from Florence to Venice on our website, be sure to indicate that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Milan with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Venice to Milan, you would take a Frecciarossa high-speed trains, so reservations will be required for this trip, as well. When you go to purchase the reservations from Venice to Milan on our website, be sure to indicate that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Milan to Paris with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The night train from Milan to Paris is the Thello Night train, which is technically not covered by any rail pass; however, the Eurail Global Pass does enable a 20% discount for tickets on this train.<br /><br />The Thello Night train from Milan to Paris carries single compartments, double compartments, triple compartments (T3), 4-berth couchettes (T4), and 6-berth couchettes (T6). Due to an error, when trying to book the reservations on our website, it may currently be the case that our website is only able to offer a maximum of two of these accommodation types. If you're interested in one of the accommodation types that isn't shown, you would have to email us at <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a> for instructions about how to proceed.<br /><br />Generally, the Thello Night train can be booked once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Lourdes with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Paris to Lourdes, you would take a TGV high-speed train. TGV trains do require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. When you go to purchase the reservations from Paris to Lourdes on our website, be sure to indicate that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. Generally, these trains can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Lourdes to Toulouse with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Lourdes to Toulouse, you can take either an Intercités train or a regional 'TER' train. The Intercités trains require reservations, while the TER trains do not accept reservations.<br /><br />To purchase reservations on one of the Intercités trains on this route, you would have to remember to check the 'I have a rail pass' box when you do your search and indicate that you'll be traveling with the 'Eurail Global Pass'. These trains can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Just to access schedules for the non-reservable 'TER' trains, you would leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked. For TER trains, the Eurail Global Pass is all you need to board..

    Changed description of My husband and I are traveling from Paris to Venice in August and are wondering if the 1st class ticket for the Thello overnight train has coed sleeper cabins, or if we will be separated and have to sleep with strangers. When I add the tickets to my cart they are described as Comfort- Coach 94, Seat 043 and Seat 043, are these seats in a sleeper cabin?
