blocked reservations Paris to Rome - with France Italy Pass

When I get my France-Italy pass and go onto reservations to reserve the paris-rome ticket, why do all the reservations come up blocked ? This is such a pain. Can you please unblock this, or can we not buy these reservations anymore ?

    Hi Grama,

    As of a few months ago, Thello, the operator for the night train between Paris and Milan (as part of an overnight connection from Paris to Rome), no longer accepts any rail pass to cover its ticket costs. Therefore, for this train, you would purchase a regular point-to-point ticket under 'Check Fares and Schedules' on the homepage of the Rail Europe website,

    Otherwise, if you wish to use your rail pass, you could take the day connection from Paris to Rome, however, the passholder fares on these trains sell out very quickly. The day connection involves one train change in Turin along the way. When you do a search for trains from Paris to Turin, there may be an error message that displays that states the trains are unavailable or sold out. Please disregard this error message as it is incorrect, and it is likely that the passholder rates are still available. If you see this error message when you pull up the results of your search, you would have to call us at 1-800-622-8600. We hope to have this error fixed as soon as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience posed in the meantime. These trains can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure, and we do recommend purchasing the reservations as soon as possible.
