    Changed reply in topic of Visiting Pinneberg from Munich by Jeff to Hi Dave,<br /><br />There are short, local trains from Hamburg to Pinneberg. Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> would take about 6 hours in duration and do involve changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hamburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Hamburg</a> along the way.<br /><br />Tickets from Hamburg to Pinneberg are only able to be purchased locally in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a>. With that being the case, the schedules for this segment are not able to be viewed on our website. For your reference, they depart very frequently throughout the day, it looks like every 5-10 minutes or so. The ride from Hamburg to Pinneberg can take anywhere between 10 and 25 minutes. The trains from Hamburg to Pinneberg are either S-Bahn trains or Nordbahn (NBE) trains.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/munich-hamburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/munich-hamburg">Munich to Hamburg</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//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>. Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hamburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Hamburg</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ICE</a> (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/ice-7534">InterCity Express</a>) trains. Generally, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ICE</a> trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> can be booked once within 180 days of an intended departure date..

    Changed reply in topic of Spain to Andorra to France to Monaco to Genoa - train to all or just the main 3?! by Jeff to Hi Katelyn,<br /><br />For this much travel, your best option would be to purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> can be found here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, 1st class is recommended for the pass.<br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover the ticket costs on trains. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. With regard to your itinerary, most of your trains will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<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 /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Narbonne (fastest option)</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/toulouse">Toulouse</a>, the most feasible connection takes about 7.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a> along the way.<br /><br />The direct train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/madrid">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a> is a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/france-spain-high-speed-train">France-Spain High Speed</a> train, which does require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Toulouse</a>, there are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/ter-7551">TER</a> trains, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> trains and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains. Most trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Toulouse</a> are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/ter-7551">TER</a> trains, which do not accept reservations. Therefore, 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> is all you would need to board any of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains. Conversely, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains would require reservations.<br /><br />When searching schedules for this route on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">our website</a>, you would just have to break up your search in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a>. Therefore, you would do one search from Madrid to Narbonne and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/narbonne-toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne to Toulouse</a>. Be sure to check the 'I have a rail pass' box so that you can purchase reservations for the segment from Madrid to Narbonne.<br /><br />For a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Narbonne</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/toulouse">Toulouse</a>, 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> is all you need to board, so you can disregard the costs that come up for these trains. You would only need to purchase reservations if you want to take one of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains on this segment.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/france-spain-high-speed-train">France-Spain High Speed</a> trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/madrid">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/narbonne">Narbonne</a> can only be reserved within 120 days of an intended departure date, while <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains in France can generally only be reserved within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Figueras and Perpignan (earlier arrival)</u></b><br /><br />For an earlier arrival into <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse">Toulouse</a>, there is a connection from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow">Toulouse</a> taking 8.5 hours and involving 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/figueras" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Figueras</a> and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/perpignan" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Perpignan</a>.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/figueras" rel="nofollow">Figueras</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> trains, which require reservations; however, the Madrid-Figueras <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> trains are currently not able to be reserved on our website.

    Changed reply in topic of Spain to Andorra to France to Monaco to Genoa - train to all or just the main 3?! by Jeff to Hi Katelyn,<br /><br />For this much travel, your best option would be to purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> can be found here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, 1st class is recommended for the pass.<br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover the ticket costs on trains. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. With regard to your itinerary, most of your trains will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<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 /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Narbonne (fastest option)</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse">Toulouse</a>, the most feasible connection takes about 7.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow">Narbonne</a> along the way.<br /><br />The direct train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow">Narbonne</a> is a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train">France-Spain High Speed</a> train, which does require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow">Narbonne</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow">Toulouse</a>, there are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551">TER</a> trains, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> trains and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains. Most trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/narbonne" rel="nofollow">Narbonne</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow">Toulouse</a> are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551">TER</a> trains, which do not accept reservations.

    Changed reply in topic of Spain to Andorra to France to Monaco to Genoa - train to all or just the main 3?! by Jeff to Hi Katelyn,<br /><br />For this much travel, your best option would be to purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> can be found here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, 1st class is recommended for the pass.<br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover the ticket costs on trains. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. With regard to your itinerary, most of your trains will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<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 /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Narbonne (fastest option)</u></b><br /><br />From Madrid to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Toulouse</a>, the most feasible connection takes about 7.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Narbonne along the way.<br /><br />The direct train from Madrid to Narbonne is a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France-Spain High Speed</a> train, which does require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />From Narbonne to Toulouse, there are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> trains and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains. Most trains from Narbonne to Toulouse are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains, which do not accept reservations. Therefore, 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> is all you would need to board any of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains. Conversely, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Intercités</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains would require reservations.<br /><br />When searching schedules for this route on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a>, you would just have to break up your search in Narbonne. Therefore, you would do one search from Madrid to Narbonne and then another search for connecting trains from Narbonne to Toulouse. Be sure to check the 'I have a rail pass' box so that you can purchase reservations for the segment from Madrid to Narbonne.<br /><br />For a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> from Narbonne to Toulouse, 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> is all you need to board, so you can disregard the costs that come up for these trains. You would only need to purchase reservations if you want to take one of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains on this segment.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/france-spain-high-speed-train">France-Spain High Speed</a> trains from Madrid to Narbonne can only be reserved within 120 days of an intended departure date, while <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Intercités</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains in France can generally only be reserved within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Figueras and Perpignan (earlier arrival)</u></b><br /><br />For an earlier arrival into <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Toulouse</a>, there is a connection from Madrid to Toulouse taking 8.5 hours and involving 2 train changes along the way; once in Figueras and then once in Perpignan.<br /><br />Trains from Madrid to Figueras are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">AVE</a> trains, which require reservations; however, the Madrid-Figueras <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">AVE</a> trains are currently not able to be reserved on our website. If you prefer this earlier option, you would purchase reservations for the Madrid-Figueras segment by emailing your request to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">customercare@raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />Trains from Figueras to Perpignan are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France-Spain High Speed</a> trains, which require reservations. These can be purchased on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a> by checking the 'I have a rail pass' box when you do a search from Figueras to Perpignan under the route search feature on our homepage.<br /><br />Direct trains from Perpignan to Toulouse are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains, which do not accept reservations. Therefore, 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> would be all you'd need to board.

Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow">Munich</a> would take about 6 hours in duration and do involve changing trains once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hamburg" rel="nofollow">Hamburg</a> along the way.<br /><br />Tickets from Hamburg to Pinneberg are only able to be purchased locally in Germany. With that being the case, the schedules for this segment are not able to be viewed on our website. For your reference, they depart very frequently throughout the day, it looks like every 5-10 minutes or so. The ride from Hamburg to Pinneberg can take anywhere between 10 and 25 minutes. The trains from Hamburg to Pinneberg are either S-Bahn trains or Nordbahn (NBE) trains.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/munich-hamburg" rel="nofollow">Munich to Hamburg</a> by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of Spain to Andorra to France to Monaco to Genoa - train to all or just the main 3?! by Jeff to Hi Katelyn,<br /><br />For this much travel, your best option would be to purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> can be found here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />For the most comfortable experience, 1st class is recommended for the pass.<br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover the ticket costs on trains. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. With regard to your itinerary, most of your trains will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<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 /><b><u>Madrid to Toulouse via Narbonne (fastest option)</u></b><br /><br />From Madrid to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/toulouse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Toulouse</a>, the most feasible connection takes about 7.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Narbonne along the way.<br /><br />The direct train from Madrid to Narbonne is a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/france-spain-high-speed-train" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France-Spain High Speed</a> train, which does require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />From Narbonne to Toulouse, there are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Intercités</a> trains and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> trains. Most trains from Narbonne to Toulouse are regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains, which do not accept reservations. Therefore, 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> is all you would need to board any of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> trains. Conversely, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Intercités</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains would require reservations.<br /><br />When searching schedules for this route on our website, you would just have to break up your search in Narbonne. Therefore, you would do one search from Madrid to Narbonne and then another search for connecting trains from Narbonne to Toulouse. Be sure to check the 'I have a rail pass' box so that you can purchase reservations for the segment from Madrid to Narbonne.<br /><br />For a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TER</a> from Narbonne to Toulouse, 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> is all you need to board, so you can disregard the costs that come up for these trains.

    Changed reply in topic of Spain to Andorra to France to Monaco to Genoa - train to all or just the main 3?! by Jeff to Hi Katelyn,<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Andorra la Vella</u></b><br /><br />The closest station to Andorra la Vella is L'Hospitalet-près-l'Andorre (entered as 'L'hospitalet Pres' on our website). However, getting there from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> would take about 12 hours (including a bus from L'Hospitalet-près-l'Andorre to Andorra la Vella).<br /><br />A much faster and more direct option would be take the train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> only as far as Lleida, from where you can board a bus that would take you directly up to Andorra la Vella. With this option, the trip would only take about 5 hours.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets from Madrid to Lleida by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. Trains from Madrid to Lleida are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> trains.<br /><br />Tickets for a bus from Lleida to Andorra la Vella would be purchased locally or directly through the bus company. The operator for this bus service is 'Grup Montmantell'.<br /><br /><b><u>Andorra la Vella to Monaco</u></b><br /><br />The only way to get from Andorra la Vella to Monaco within the span of 1 day would involve taking a bus from Andorra la Vella up to Toulouse, a train from Toulouse to Marseille, another train from Marseille to Nice, and then another train from Nice to Monaco. In its entirety, the trip would take about 12 hours.<br /><br />Tickets for the bus from Andorra la Vella to Toulouse would again have to be purchased locally or directly through the bus company. I believe the bus service for this route is called 'Andbus'.<br /><br />For the trains, you would purchase tickets by using the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our homepage</a>. For a trip from Toulouse to Monaco, you would 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/toulouse-marseille" rel="nofollow">Toulouse to Marseille</a>, another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/marseille-nice" rel="nofollow">Marseille to Nice</a>, and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/nice-monaco" rel="nofollow">Nice to Monaco</a>. If you can find one that fits into your connection, there are also direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains from Marseille all the way to Monaco. If not, you would have to make that final change in Nice before getting to Monaco.<br /><br />Trains from Toulouse to Marseille are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/french-trains-intercites-7589">Intercités</a> trains.<br /><br />Trains from Marseille to Nice are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains or regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow">TER</a> trains.<br /><br />From Nice to Monaco, you would just take a regional <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ter-7551">TER</a> train.<br /><br /><b><u>Monaco to Genoa</u></b><br /><br />From Monaco to Genoa, there are direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thello-day-trains-7533" rel="nofollow">Thello</a> trains.
