    Hi Reina,

    Florence to Munich

    A connection from Florence to Munich takes about 7.5 to 8 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Bologna along the way. Trains from Bologna to Munich pass through Austria en route, which is why Austria would need to be included on your Eurail Select Pass.

Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Florence to Bologna and another search for connecting trains from Bologna to Munich.

    Please note, the 'Italo' trains on the segment from Florence to Bologna do not accept rail passes. Therefore, you would want to be sure to choose one of the 'Frecciarossa' or 'Frecciargento' trains for this segment, so that you would be covered.
