    Changed reply in topic of What pass makes sense for London to Paris, Paris to Geneva, Geneva to Milan, Milan to Venice, Venice to Milan? by Jeff to Hi Betsy,<br /><br />For the requested itinerary, you would purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>. For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />With this pass, a 8-year old would be free. When you go to purchase the pass, you would refer to where it says 'WHO' and indicate that there will be 2 adults and 1 'Youth/Child'. After you indicate that there will be a 'Youth/Child', you will be prompted to enter his age. By indicating that they are 8 and also by checking the box where it says 'Adults traveling as a group get a discount', you would not be charged additional for the child pass.<br /><br />For the most comfortable travel experience, we recommend booking your pass for 1st class.<br /><br />Rail passes cover ticket costs. When required, reservations are a supplementary cost to a pass.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Paris</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a>, you would take the high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> train. On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a>, reservations are required as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/london-paris" rel="nofollow">London to Paris</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">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 />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that you purchase these reservations as soon as possible. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> is distinct from other trains in that it can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Geneva</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/geneva" rel="nofollow">Geneva</a>, you would take the high-speed <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>.

On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a>, reservations are required as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from London to Paris by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">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 />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that you purchase these reservations as soon as possible. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> is distinct from other trains in that it can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Interlaken</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Paris to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a> involve changing trains once in Basel along the way. From Paris to Basel, you would be on a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow">TGV Lyria</a> train.<br /><br />On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow">TGV Lyria</a> from Paris to Basel, reservations are required (at a rate called the 'Pass 2' rate for passengers traveling with a Eurail Global Pass).<br /><br />On trains from Basel to Interlaken, reservations are not necessary, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you'll need to board.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Paris to Basel by just searching that segment of the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">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’). Generally, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow">TGV Lyria</a> can be reserved once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature on our homepage just to view schedules for the non-reserved connecting trains from Basel to Interlaken. Generally, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would have to leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Interlaken-Jungfraujoch</u></b><br /><br />The gateway to Jungfraujoch is <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> does not cover the trains that make up a connection between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a> and Jungfraujoch. However, with the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> you would be eligible to receive a discount of about 25% on these trains. To receive this discount, you would purchase the 'JUNGFRAUJOCH/TOP OF EUROPE Interlaken to Jungfraujoch Eurail Pass Holder' (Low season, Mid-season, or High-season depending on when you'll be taking the trip) option of a pass called the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315">Jungfraujoch Top of Europe</a>'. For this pass, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315</a>.<br /><br />This pass covers the 2 different routes up to Jungfraujoch (and a return to be done within 24 hours). These routes are as follows:<br /><br />The Grindelwald route would look like this:<br /><br />-Train from Interlaken to Grindelwald on the ‘Bernese Oberland Railway’<br />-Train from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg on the ‘Wengernalp Railway’<br />-Train from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch on the ‘Jungfrau Railway’ (the highest railway in Europe)<br /><br />The Lauterbrunnen/Wengen route would look like this:<br /><br />-Train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen on the ‘Bernese Oberland Railway’<br />-Train from Lauterbrunnen to Kleine Scheidegg on the ‘Wengernalp Railway’ (Wengen is a stop along this rail line)<br />-Train from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch on the ‘Jungfrau Railway’ (the highest railway in Europe)<br /><br />On the 'Jungfrau Railway' between Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch, reservations are highly recommended for travel between the months of May and October. The reservations are a small cost in addition to the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315" rel="nofollow">Jungfraujoch Top of Europe</a>' and have to be made locally at the stations in either Interlaken (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/interlaken-ost" rel="nofollow">Interlaken Ost</a>), Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, or Wengen.<br /><br />Expect stunning views throughout the entire trek between Interlaken and Jungfraujoch, whether you take the route via Grindelwald or the one via Lauterbrunnen/Wengen. To get the most of your Jungfraujoch experience, you might want to consider making your ascent one way and your descent the other. The ‘Jungfrau Railway’ itself runs mostly through a tunnel (the ‘Jungfrau Tunnel’), but there are two ‘sightseeing stops’ in the tunnel (‘Eigerwand’ and ‘Eismeer’) where passengers can exit their train and take in the views through windows built into the side of the mountain.<br /><br />At the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station, you have access to the Sphinx Observation Terrace and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier). The Jungfraujoch station (Top of Europe) is the highest rail station in Europe, the Sphinx Observation Terrace is one of the highest astronomical observatories in the world, and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier) is the longest glacier in Europe.<br /><br /><b><u>Interlaken to Lucerne</u></b><br /><br />Trains from Interlaken to Lucerne represent one segment of the famed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line-7546" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line-7546">GoldenPass</a> scenic route.

These trains don't accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> is once again all you'll need to board.

    Changed reply in topic of Getting to and from the Lisbon Airport via Metro by Jeff to The Lisbon Airport does not have an inter-city rail station. Trains to other destinations in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/portugal" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a> will depart from the Oriente station in the city-center of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lisbon" rel="nofollow">Lisbon</a>. To get from airport to the Oriente station, you would just take the local metro. The red line (Vermelho) of the metro from the airport to Oriente departs every 5-9 minutes only takes about 9 minutes. Otherwise, the Oriente station is just a short taxi ride from the airport.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets between the city of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lisbon" rel="nofollow">Lisbon</a> and other cities in Portugal 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>.<br /><br />When traveling in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/portugal" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a>, it is also important to note that IC and Alfa Pendular trains (which represent most trains that run between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lisbon" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/lisbon">Lisbon</a> and other major destinations in the country, such as <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/porto" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/porto">Porto</a> and Coimbra to the north or villages in the Algarve region to the south) will require reservations as a supplement to the ticket.

Reservations for trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/portugal" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a> can only be purchased at the 'CP' offices in the stations.

    Changed reply in topic of 4 Scenic Options for a Trip from Venice to Salzburg! by Jeff to If you're one of those travelers who is drawn to the journey and you have the time to spare, consider these scenic options for your trip from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salzburg</a>:<br /><br />1.) The fastest and most feasible route from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salzburg</a> takes just under 6 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Villach along the way. The train from Villach to Salzburg takes you over part of the very scenic Salzburg-Tyrol Railway. The Salzburg-Tyrol Railway starts as your train passes through Schwarzach and then culminates you arrive into Salzburg.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would just break up your search once in Villach. Therefore, you would do one search from Venice to Villach and then another search for connecting trains from Villach to Salzburg. The trains from Venice to Villach can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while the trains from Villach to Salzburg can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />2.) If you don’t mind adding about 2 hours to your journey time, you can travel from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salzburg</a> by way of the famed Brenner Railway. This option takes just under 8 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/verona">Verona</a> and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/innsbruck" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Innsbruck</a>. The train from Verona to Innsbruck runs over the scenic Brenner Railway through Italy's Dolomites and then the Tyrolean Alps of Austria. The direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains from Innsbruck to Salzburg then cut through southern Bavaria over the also scenic Rosenheim-Kufstein &amp; Rosenheim-Salzburg Railways.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Venice to Verona</a>, another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/verona-innsbruck" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/verona-innsbruck">Verona to Innsbruck</a>, and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/innsbruck-salzburgo" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Innsbruck to Salzburg</a>. The trains from Venice to Verona and Verona to Innsbruck can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while the trains from Innsbruck to Salzburg can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Of the 4 routes, this one is probably the best compromise between expeditiousness and scenery.<br /><br />3.) For a more leisurely and possibly even more scenic route between <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a>, it would add about 4 hours to your total journey time, incorporating both the Brenner Railway and the Salzburg-Tyrol Railway. In its entirety, this option takes just under 10 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Verona</a>&nbsp;and then once in Worgl. The train from Verona to Worgl takes you over the Brenner Railway. When you arrive into Worgl, you would then need to be sure to switch to one of the regional (REX) trains to Salzburg, instead of the faster <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains.

The regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg travel along the full Salzburg-Tyrol Railway, which stays within the Austrian border, and is thought of as being a little more scenic than the route through Bavaria.<br /><br />To book this option, you would have to call us, because the regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg are not able to be booked on our website. We can issue these tickets if you call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM CT Monday to Friday. The trains from Venice to Verona and Verona to Worgl can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while tickets for the regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg can only be booked within 60 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />4.) Lastly, there is a scenic option that would have you going the other direction out of <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> toward <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/vienna">Vienna</a>. This option takes about 10 hours and involves changing trains only the once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Vienna</a> along the way. The train from Venice to Vienna takes passengers over a famed scenic line called the Semmering Railway. This stretch of railway starts as your Venice-Vienna train passes through Bruck an der Mur/Mürzzuschlag and culminates as you pass through Gloggnitz/Wiener Neustadt before you get to Vienna.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would break up your search once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/vienna">Vienna</a>. Therefore, you would do one search to access the direct trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Venice to Vienna</a> and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/vienna-salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/vienna-salzburg">Vienna to Salzburg</a>.

For a more leisurely and possibly even more scenic route between <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice">Venice</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a>, it would add about 4 hours to your total journey time, incorporating both the Brenner Railway and the Salzburg-Tyrol Railway. In its entirety, this option takes just under 10 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/verona" rel="nofollow">Verona</a>&nbsp;and then once in Worgl. The train from Verona to Worgl takes you over the Brenner Railway. When you arrive into Worgl, you would then need to be sure to switch to one of the regional (REX) trains to Salzburg, instead of the faster <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains from Worgl to Salzburg are the ones that cut through Bavaria over the Rosenheim-Kufstein &amp; Rosenheim-Salzburg Railways, which are scenic, but not probably not considered quite as scenic as the regional (REX) trains between the same cities. The regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg travel along the full Salzburg-Tyrol Railway, which stays within the Austrian border, and is thought of as being a little more scenic than the route through Bavaria.<br /><br />To book this option, you would have to call us, because the regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg are not able to be booked on our website.
