    Changed reply in topic of 3 weeks travel, London-Paris, Paris-Brugge, Brugge-Amsterdam, Amsterdam-Rotterdam, Rotterdam-Amsterdam Schipol Airport, Venice-Florence, and Florence-Rome by Jeff to Hi Nahum,<br /><br />For the requested itinerary, your best option would be the 3 country option of the Eurail Select Pass to include France, the Benelux, and Italy. For this pass, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-3-countries-8037" rel="nofollow">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-3-countries-8037</a>.<br /><br />Belgium and the Netherlands are included as a part of the 'Benelux'. The Benelux covers Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and counts them together as one ‘country’ for the purpose of rail passes. Therefore, to account for your travel to Belgium and the Netherlands, you would include the ‘Benelux’ as one of the countries on your Eurail Select Pass.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Paris</u></b><br /><br />From London to Paris, you would take the famed Eurostar high-speed train. Even though this journey starts in England, the 3 country option of the Eurail Select Pass that includes France is valid on the Eurostar. The Eurostar would just require reservations as a supplement to the 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">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 Select Pass 3 Countries’). Generally, the Eurostar can be reserved 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Brugge</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Paris to Brugge take just over 2.5 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in Brussels along the way.<br /><br />From Paris to Brussels, you would be on the high-speed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a>, which does require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Trains from Brussels to Brugge do not accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations for the segment from Paris to Brussels 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 Select Pass 3 Countries’). Generally, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) to view schedules for the unreserved segment from Brussels to Brugge.<br /><br /><b><u>Brugge to Amsterdam</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Brugge to Amsterdam would have you going back through Brussels and take 3 to 4 hours in duration.<br /><br />Once again, trains between Brugge and Brussels do not accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />From Brussels to Amsterdam, there are either IC (InterCity) trains or high-speed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> trains. The IC trains do not accept reservations, so the rail pass would be all you'd need to board one of these trains, Otherwise, if you take a <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a>, reservations would be required as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature under 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for the unreserved segment from Brugge to Brussels. You can then do the same to view schedules for the IC trains on the segment from Brussels to Amsterdam. Note: To view schedules for the (non-reservable) IC trains from Brussels to Amsterdam, do not indicate that you'll be traveling with a rail pass by leaving the 'I have a rail pass' unchecked.<br /><br />If you decide to take the Thalys for the segment from Brussels to Amsterdam, you would purchase reservations by searching the route, checking the 'I have a rail pass' box, and indicating that you'll be traveling with the ‘Eurail Select Pass 3 Countries’. Generally, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date. Taking the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> for this segment would cut down on the total journey time by about 1 hour.<br /><br /><b><u>Amsterdam to Rotterdam</u></b><br /><br />From Amsterdam to Rotterdam, there are some <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> high-speed trains, but you would likely just want to take an IC train for this segment. The IC trains from Amsterdam to Rotterdam are much more frequent and the ride is only a few minutes longer than it would be on the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a>. Additionally, the IC trains do not require reservations, so the Eurail Select Pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />Schedules for the IC trains from Amsterdam to Rotterdam are currently not able to be viewed on our website. For your reference, they depart 4 times an hour throughout the day and the ride only takes about 41-42 minutes.<br /><br /><b><u>Rotterdam to Amsterdam Schipol Airport</u></b><br /><br />Rotterdam to the Amsterdam Schipol Airport is similar to your trip from Amsterdam to Rotterdam; there are some <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536">Thalys</a> trains, but you would likely just want to take an IC train since they depart frequently and don't take reservations.<br /><br />Schedules for the trains from Rotterdam to Amsterdam Schipol Airport are also not able to be viewed on our website, but these depart about 4 times every hour throughout the day and the ride only takes about 24-25 minutes. Since they don't take reservations, the Eurail Select Pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Florence</u></b><br /><br />From Venice to Florence, there are Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Italo trains; which are all high-speed. Italo trains are privately owned and do not accept rail passes, so you would want to be sure to take a Frecciarossa or Frecciargento for this segment. These do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Passholder reservations for trains in Italy are currently not able to be booked on our website. Therefore, to purchase reservations for a Frecciarossa or Frecciargento from Venice to Florence, you would instead have to call 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 and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.<br /><br />Generally, Frecciarossa and Frecciargento trains can be reserved within 120 days of an intended departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Florence to Rome</u></b><br /><br />From Florence to Rome, there are again Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Italo trains. Since the Italo trains do not accept rail passes, you'll once again want to be sure to take a Frecciarossa or Frecciargento. These do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.<br /><br />Since passholder reservations for trains in Italy are not able to be booked on our website at this time, you would have to call us to purchase reservations for this segment as well.<br /><br />Note: There are also some regional trains from Florence to Rome, but these would more than double your total journey time for this segment..
