Can I go from Munich to Rome with a Eurail Select Pass?

I am planning to purchase Eurail Select Pass for two seniors in May. The four adjacent countries are Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Italy.We are starting in Germany and ending in Italy. Can we go all the way from Munich to Rome?

    Hi Magdy,

    You would purchase the Eurail Select Pass here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html.

    Since all of the countries you'd be traveling through would be accounted for on the pass, you can use it to travel from Munich to Rome (rail connections from Munich to Rome happen to pass through Austria en route).

    A daytime connection from Munich to Rome would take about 9 to 10 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Bologna or Verona along the way.

    Otherwise, there is a direct overnight train from Munich to Rome ('City Night Line' night train).

    In addition to the pass, reservations would be required on these trains. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage.

    For the daytime connection, you would just break up your search in either Bologna or Verona. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Munich to Bologna or Munich to Verona (both 'Brennero EuroCity' trains) and another search for connecting trains from Bologna to Rome (high-speed 'Frecciarossa' or 'Frecciargento' trains) or Verona to Rome (high-speed 'Frecciargento' trains).

    There may currently be an error on our site that prevents the Munich-Bologna day trains and the Munich-Rome overnight train from being viewed and booked there. If you're trying to reserve either of these trains and nothing displays when you do your search, please call us at 1-800-622-8600 to book the reservations.
