    Thank you for your question, Sarah.

    For the requested itinerary, your best option would be to purchase regular point-to-point tickets, as opposed to any rail pass.

    You would purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering a route.

    From Paris to Milan, there are direct trains (high-speed 'France-Italy TGV' trains).

    From Milan to Naples, there are direct trains (high-speed 'Frecciarossa' trains, regular 'InterCity' trains, and high-speed 'Italo' trains).

    A daytime connection from Naples to Marseille would take about 12.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Milan en route. When purchasing tickets for this route on our site, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Naples to Milan (high-speed 'Frecciarossa' trains, regular 'InterCity' trains, and high-speed 'Italo' trains) and another search for the connecting train from Milan to Marseille (high-speed 'Thello Day' train).

    An overnight connection from Naples to Marseille would take at least about 16 hours in duration and involves 3 train change along the way; once in Genoa, once in Ventimiglia, and then once in Nice. The segment from Naples to Genoa would be on the actual overnight train. When purchasing tickets for this route on our site, you would once again have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search to access the night train from Naples to Genoa, another search for connecting trains from Genoa to Ventimiglia ('Regionale' trains), another search for connecting trains from Ventimiglia to Nice (regional 'TER' trains), and another search for connecting trains from Nice to Marseille (high-speed 'TGV Lyria' or high-speed 'TGV' trains).

    From Marseille to Paris, there are direct 'TGV' trains.

    Generally, all of these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure, with the exception of the 'Thello Day' train from Milan to Marseille, which can generally be booked up to 120 days in advance of a departure.
