    Changed reply in topic of How to take the Bernina Express round trip from Milan March 24,2019 by Jeff to Hi Deb,<br /><br />The bus segment of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/bernina-express-7545" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/bernina-express-7545">Bernina Express</a>, which is between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lugano" rel="nofollow">Lugano</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/tirano" rel="nofollow">Tirano</a>, only runs between April 2nd and October 28th. Therefore, you can just take a direct regional train from Milan to Tirano to connect up with the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/bernina-express-7545" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/bernina-express-7545">Bernina Express</a> train. The train segment of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/bernina-express-7545" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/bernina-express-7545">Bernina Express</a> (Tirano-St Moritz) is year-round.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching a 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 one-way trip from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/milan" rel="nofollow">Milan</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/st-moritz" rel="nofollow">St Moritz</a>, you would just break up your search once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/tirano" rel="nofollow">Tirano</a>. Therefore, you would do one search from Milan to Tirano and then another search for connecting trains from Tirano to St Moritz. For a return, you would just do the same thing in the reverse, so you would do one search from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/st-moritz-tirano" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/st-moritz-tirano">St Moritz to Tirano</a> and then another search for connecting trains from Tirano to Milan.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, we recommend booking 1st class.<br /><br />The Milan-Tirano trains run along the eastern coast of Lake Como for part of the journey and are also very scenic..

    Changed reply in topic of What is the best train route/pass (May 2019):Paris-Bayeux (3 nights). Bayeux-London (5 nights). London-Lourdes (3 nights). Lourdes-Paris. by Jeff to Hi Anna,<br /><br />The totals for the option of getting a rail pass and the option of just getting regular ticket is comparable; it just depends on the ticket costs you're able to find. You might even prefer just to purchase regular tickets instead of getting a rail pass.<br /><br />If you purchase a rail pass, the pass you'd get would be the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. This way, your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> would also be covered. 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 comfort, we recommend purchasing your pass for 1st class.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Bayeux</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bayeux</a>, you would take a direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercité</a> train. As a supplement to a rail pass, these trains do require reservations.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-bayeux">Paris to Bayeux</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">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 />Generally, the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/bayeux">Bayeux</a> can only be booked once within 60-90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Bayeux to London</u></b><br /><br />The most feasible connections <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bayeux</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> involve going back down through <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> and switching trains. From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/bayeux">Bayeux</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> you take an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercité</a> train, and from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> you take a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurostar</a> high-speed train. Both of these trains require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Once again, you would purchase reservations by entering the route right on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/">our homepage</a>, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating that you'll be traveling with the ‘Eurail Global Pass'.

Therefore, you would do one search from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/bayeux-paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/bayeux-paris">Bayeux to Paris</a> and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-londres" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-londres">Paris to London</a>.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bayeux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/bayeux">Bayeux</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> arrive into the St Lazare station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/paris">Paris</a>, while the trains to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> depart from the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Nord station</a> in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a>. To commute from St Lazare to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Nord</a>, you would take Line E of Paris’s RER commuter rail network. The ride from St Lazare to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-du-nord" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/place/paris-gare-du-nord">Nord</a> only takes about 4 minutes. You would pay to board the RER locally when you’re there.<br /><br />The Bayeux-Paris trains can generally be booked within 60-90 days of an intended departure, while the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> trains can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Lourdes</u></b><br /><br />Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lourdes" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/lourdes">Lourdes</a> take 8 to 9 hours in duration and involve transferring again in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/paris">Paris</a> along the way.

For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, 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 />For the most comfort, we recommend purchasing your pass for 1st class.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Bayeux</u></b><br /><br />From Paris to Bayeux, you would take a direct Intercité train. As a supplement to a rail pass, these trains do require reservations.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Paris to Bayeux by searching the 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 />Generally, the trains from Paris to Bayeux can only be booked once within 60-90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Bayeux to London</u></b><br /><br />The most feasible connections Bayeux to London involve going back down through Paris and switching trains. From Bayeux to Paris you take an Intercité train, and from Paris to London you take a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> high-speed train. Both of these trains require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Once again, you would purchase reservations by entering the route right on our homepage, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating that you'll be traveling with the ‘Eurail Global Pass'. For a trip from Bayeux to London, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Bayeux to Paris and then another search for connecting trains from Paris to London.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that trains from Bayeux to Paris arrive into the St Lazare station in Paris, while the trains to London depart from the Nord station in Paris. To commute from St Lazare to Nord, you would take Line E of Paris’s RER commuter rail network. The ride from St Lazare to Nord only takes about 4 minutes. You would pay to board the RER locally when you’re there.<br /><br />The Bayeux-Paris trains can generally be booked within 60-90 days of an intended departure, while the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> trains can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Lourdes</u></b><br /><br />Connections from London to Lourdes take 8 to 9 hours in duration and involve transferring again in Paris along the way. The trains from London to Paris are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> high-speed trains, and the trains from Paris to Lourdes are TGV high-speed trains. Both of these trains require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Again, you would purchase reservations by entering the route on our homepage, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating that you'll be traveling with the ‘Eurail Global Pass'. For a trip from London to Lourdes, you would again just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from London to Paris and then another search for connecting trains from Paris to Lourdes.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that the trains from London to Paris arrive into the Paris Nord station, while the trains from Paris to Lourdes depart from the Paris Montparnasse station. To commute from Nord to Montparnasse, you would take M4 of the Paris Métro. The ride on the Métro from Nord to Montparnasse would only take about 17 minutes, but you would still want to give yourself at least 1 full hour between your arrival into Nord and your departure from Montparnasse. You would pay to take the Métro locally at the turnstiles before boarding. At Montparnasse, you should also expect a bit of a walk from the Métro area to the area from where the TGV trains depart.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> can generally be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure, while the TGV can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Lourdes to Paris</u></b><br /><br />To get back to Paris, you would just hop back on the TGV from Lourdes to Paris. You would purchase reservations from Lourdes to Paris by searching the route on our homepage, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating that you'll be traveling with the ‘Eurail Global Pass'.<br /><br />The TGV trains can be booked once within 90 days of a departure..

    Changed reply in topic of Barcelona Airport to Train Station to head to Madrid by Jeff to Hi Sasha,<br /><br />The Barcelona El Prat Airport is only serviced by local commuter trains that go into the city of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/barcelona" rel="nofollow">Barcelona</a>. Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/barcelona" rel="nofollow">Barcelona</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> high-speed trains that depart from the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/barcelona-sants" rel="nofollow">Sants station</a> in the city.<br /><br />To get from the Barcelona El Prat Airport into the city, you would take a local 'C2' Cercanías train. These trains depart once every 30 minutes throughout the day and the ride takes about 20 to 25 minutes between the airport and the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/barcelona-sants" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/barcelona-sants">Sants station</a>. You would pay to board the Cercanías locally upon arrival.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/barcelona-madrid" rel="nofollow">Barcelona to Madrid</a> by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>. Generally, trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/spain" rel="nofollow">Spain</a> can be booked within 60-90 days of an intended departure date. If your intended departure falls outside of this time frame, you would just have to use an earlier date (a day within the next 60 days from now) to get an idea of the ticket costs and schedules in the meantime.<br /><br />For the best experience, 1st class is recommended..

    Changed reply in topic of Only a bus from Annecy to Chamonix in April 2019? by Jeff to Hi Hunter,<br /><br />Generally, connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/annecy" rel="nofollow">Annecy</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/chamonix" rel="nofollow">Chamonix</a> do involve changing trains once in St Gervais les Bains along the way. However, the national rail network of France&nbsp;is not running these trains during the time of your travel. On your requested travel date, you would instead take the bus.
