    Changed reply in topic of What is the best way to travel from Naples to the Amalfi Coast? by Jeff to Hi Gary,<br /><br />To get down to the Amalfi Coast, you are right that you'll first have to take a high-speed train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Naples</a>. The Amalfi Coast itself is only accessible by a private railway out of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> called the 'Circumvesuviana' and then a bus or ferry. Since it is privately owned and operated, tickets for the Circumvesuviana Railway can only be purchased locally when you're in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/italy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/destinations/country-guides/article/italy">Italy</a>. The same is true of the connecting buses and ferries.<br /><br />The Circumvesuviana trains depart out of the Piazza Garibaldi station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples">Naples</a>, conveniently located in the lower level of the same building as the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/napoli-centrale" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/napoli-centrale">Centrale station</a> (the main station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> where most trains from elsewhere in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/italy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Italy</a> would arrive into, including trains coming from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a>).<br /><br />To get to the Amalfi Coast, you would take the Circumvesuviana its full route from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow">Sorrento</a>. From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a>, you can take a SITA bus to the villages on the actual Amalfi Coast itself. Otherwise, you can board a ferry in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a> that you would take you to the villages on the Amalfi Coast. The buses run year-round, while the ferries are only seasonal.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets for your train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/rome-naples" rel="nofollow">Rome to Naples</a> by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>.

You would can check schedules and purchase point-to-point tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />You could also consider the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a>, which would cover the ticket costs on these trains. For costs and information of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913</a>..

    Changed reply in topic of Great Advise Needed for Rail Travel from Annecy to Vevey & Vevey to Lake Como by Jeff to Hi Casse,<br /><br />There are no direct trains for either of these routes, so the trip would involve several tickets.<br /><br /><b><u>Annecy to Vevey (via Aix-les-Bains-le-Revard and Geneva)</u></b><br /><br />The fastest connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/annecy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Annecy</a> to Vevey take 3.5 to 4.5 hours in duration and involves at least 2 train changes along the way; once in Aix-les-Bains-le-Revard and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Geneva</a>.<br /><br />Tickets from Annecy to Aix-les-Bains-le-Revard can be purchased by searching this segment of the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>. When searching for trains to Aix-les-Bains-le-Revard, you would just type 'Aix les Bains' in the field for the arrival city.<br /><br />Tickets for trains from Aix-les-Bains-le-Revard to Geneva can only be purchased locally when you're in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/france-10" rel="nofollow">France</a>.<br /><br />Tickets from Geneva to Vevey are not able to be purchased on our website, but you can purchase these by calling us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday.<br /><br /><b><u>Annecy to Vevey (via the Mont Blanc Express route)</u></b><br /><br />As an alternate option from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/annecy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Annecy</a> to Vevey, you can go by way of the Mont Blanc Express scenic route. This option would take at least about 5.5 hours in duration and involves 3 train changes along the way; once in St-Gervais-les-Bains, once in Vallorcine, and then once in Martigny.<br /><br />The segments from St-Gervais-les-Bains to Vallorcine and Vallorcine to Martigny represent the actual Mont Blanc Express scenic route.<br /><br />Tickets for each of these segments can be purchased by searching under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>. When checking schedules and purchasing tickets from Annecy to Vevey via the Mont Blanc Express, you would just have to break up your search in St Gervais les Bains and then in Martigny.<br /><br />Also, when purchasing tickets on our website for the segment from Martigny to Vevey, you would actually have to enter 'Lausanne' as your end destination. Even though the ticket we issue for this segment would reflect 'Lausanne' as the arrival station, you would just get off the train when it stops in Vevey. For your reference, all direct trains from Martigny to Lausanne stop in Vevey 16 minutes before they are shown on our site to be arriving into <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lausanne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lausanne</a>.<br /><br />Therefore, for this option from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/annecy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/annecy">Annecy</a> to Vevey, you would do one search for trains from Annecy to St Gervais les Bains, another search from St Gervais les Bains to Martigny, and then you would do a search for connecting trains from Martigny to Lausanne.<br /><br /><b><u>Vevey to Como</u></b><br /><br />The most feasible connections from Vevey to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/como" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Como</a> take about 4.5 hours in duration and involve 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/montreux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Montreux</a> and then once in either Gallarate or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/milan" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Milan</a>.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>. For a trip from Vevey to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/como" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/como">Como</a>, you would have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Vevey to Montreux, another search for connecting trains from either Montreux to Gallarate or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/montreux-milan" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Montreux to Milan</a>, and then another search for connecting trains from either Gallarate to Como or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-como" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Milan to Como</a>..

    Changed reply in topic of Only one name shows on my tickets from Florence to Rome. Should both passengers' names be on these tickets? by Jeff to Hi Camila,<br /><br />If your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-zurich" rel="nofollow">Paris-Zurich</a> <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow">TGV Lyria</a> tickets were issued as paper documents (that were mailed to you), then only one passenger's name would be listed for both tickets and the names wouldn't matter.<br /><br />However, if your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-zurich" rel="nofollow">Paris-Zurich</a> <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535">TGV Lyria</a> tickets were issued as e-tickets (either in the form of print-at-home or print-at-station), then the passengers' names would have to be correct and specific to their ticket. Therefore, your correct name would have to appear on your ticket, and then your traveling companion's correct name would have to appear on their ticket..
