Paris to Geneva, Geneva to Milan, and Milan back to Paris. What should I purchase?

Will be flying into Paris from our home in Florida-- then taking the TVG to Geneva. 2 days in Geneva then on to Milan via train. 4 days in Milan -- then the train back to Paris (we fly out of CDG back home).Is the 3 country Eurpass themost efficient/cost effective way to go. Will it cover the Milan to Paris train?Thank you.

    Hi Robert,

    For the itinerary you laid, your most economical option would likely be to purchase regular point-to-point tickets.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, www.raileurope.com.

    Paris to Geneva

    Direct trains from Paris to Geneva are TGV Lyria trains. The ride would take 3 to 3.5 hours in duration. Generally, trains from Paris to Geneva can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    Geneva to Milan

    From Geneva to Milan, there are direct EC (EuroCity) trains. The ride on one of these direct trains takes about 4 hours in duration. Otherwise, the most feasible connections from Geneva to Milan take about 4.5 hours and involve changing trains once in Brig along the way. Generally, these trains can be booked within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    Milan to Paris

    From Milan to Paris, there are direct France-Italy TGV trains during the day, or else there is a direct overnight train called the Thello. The day trains take just under 7.5 or just under 8 hours in duration, while the night train takes just under 11 hours. Both the France-Italy TGV trains from Milan to Paris and the Thello night train can be booked within 120 days of an intended departure.

    Note: If you were to purchase a rail pass, it would not be valid on the Thello night train.
