    Thank you for your question, Tommy.

    Yes, you can take rail to get to Italy from London. You can get from London to Milan, for example, by changing trains only once along the way. The connection would first involve taking the high-speed 'Eurostar' from London to Paris. You can then take the high-speed 'France-Italy TGV' from Paris to Milan.

    You would purchase tickets and check schedules for these trains by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage. For this trip, you would piece together a connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from London to Paris and another search for Paris to Milan.

    The trains from London to Paris arrive into the Nord station in Paris, while the direct trains from Paris to Milan depart from the Gare de Lyon station. To commute from the Nord station to the Gare de Lyon station, you would take Line D of the local RER train network. The ride on the RER from Nord to Gare de Lyon would only take about 8 minutes. You would pay to board the RER locally at the turnstiles before boarding.
