    Changed reply in topic of Italy trip planning to hit Rome, Florence, the Amalfi Coast, Positano, Capri, and Naples. What should I purchase? by Jeff to Hi Vicky,<br /><br /><a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a> is directly in between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence">Florence</a> and the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a>/Amalfi Coast area, so it would be up to you which area you want to visit first.<br /><br />For the itinerary you describe, regular tickets would the most economical option for you. However, you would just purchase tickets between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow">Florence</a>, and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> (in any sequence you want).<br /><br />The Amalfi Coast/Positano is only accessible by a private railway from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> called the 'Circumvesuviana' and then a bus or ferry.<br /><br />Capri is also only accessible by this same private railway from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> and then a ferry.<br /><br />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/guides-pays/article/italy" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/italy">Italy</a>. The same would be true for the connecting buses or 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" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/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 Italy would arrive into, including trains coming from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence">Florence</a>).<br /><br />To get to Positano and the Amalfi Coast, you would take the Circumvesuviana its full route to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a>. From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow">Sorrento</a>, you can take a SITA bus to villages along the actual Amalfi Coast, including Positano. Otherwise, you can board a ferry in Sorrento that you would take you to the villages on the Amalfi Coast, including Positano. The bus runs year-round, while the ferry is only seasonal.<br /><br />To get to Capri, you would once again take the Circumvesuviana its full route to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a>. where you would switch to a ferry or hydrofoil that would take you to the island itself.<br /><br />If you were to purchase a rail pass, it would not cover any of these particular ferries, nor would it cover the bus between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a> and the Amalfi Coast.<br /><br />In advance, you would only purchase tickets for your trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence">Florence</a>, and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples">Naples</a>. The trains connecting these cities are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciarossa-7590" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciarossa-7590">Frecciarossa</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-frecciargento-7587" rel="nofollow">Frecciargento</a>, or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-italo-7544" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/italian-trains-italo-7544">Italo</a> trains.<br /><br />For your travel between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome">Rome</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/florence">Florence</a>, and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples">Naples</a>, you would purchase the tickets by searching a 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 London, Paris, Bruges, and Amsterdam / 4 cities, one pass? by Jeff to Hi Jessica,<br /><br />Due to a direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> train that now runs from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a> (but not in the reverse direction), I would say it would make a little more sense to hit these cities in the reverse direction than how you have them listed. The other sequence could also work fine, I just think it would be a little easier to hit <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a>, due to the direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> to there from London.<br /><br />What exactly to purchase for your travels would depend on the specifics of the itinerary itself and various other factors. If you only plan to travel between the cities you mentioned, then the best option for you would just be to purchase regular tickets.<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>.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Amsterdam</u></b><br /><br />As of just this year, there is now one direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> per day from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/london-amsterdam" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/london-amsterdam">London to Amsterdam</a>.

Generally, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a> is able to booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.

    Changed reply in topic of Going from Amsterdam to Hamburg, what happens if I miss my connection in Osnabruck? by Jeff to Hi Angela,<br /><br />Trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> (including cross-border trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a> and a station in Germany) do offer certain fares, labeled on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a> as 'Flex Fares', which would be valid to use for a later train on the same day.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of your schedule searches on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our site</a>, you would see the fare type you're being offered by clicking on the fare itself and then 'Fare details'. When you click on 'Fare details', a box will pop up with the name of the fare you're being offered. If the fare is labeled 'Flex Fare', then you know the ticket we issue will be valid for to use to take a later on the same day.<br /><br />If the fare is labeled 'Sparpreis' or 'Sparpreis Europa', then the tickets would not be valid for any other departure than the one you booked.<br /><br />If for a particular route <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a> does not offer you a 'Flex Fare', then you would have to call us to purchase the ticket, and we can try to issue that for you. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.<br /><br />With all this said, there should no reason that you'd miss the connecting train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hamburg" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/hamburg">Hamburg</a>. At the station in Osnabrück, you'd only need 7-10 minutes to change trains, if that..

    Changed reply in topic of Discovering Portugal - To go with my rail pass, can I purchase reservations in advance? by Jeff to Hi Oscar,<br /><br />Trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lisbon" rel="nofollow">Lisbon</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/porto" rel="nofollow">Porto</a> do require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. Unfortunately, however, the national rail network of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/portugal" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a> does not enable their trains to be reserved from anywhere outside the country. The rail network of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/portugal" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a> only allows their reservations to be sold locally at the CP offices in the stations. To purchase your reservations, you would go to CP office/ticket window in the station and mention that you have the rail pass..
