5 or 7 day train passes for Fr. Switz. and It.

Jump to last reply

I am currently planning to take a group of 30 - 40 travellers (mostly students) to Europe in March 2014. We fly into Paris, travel to Geneva, connect directly to Venice, then Florence and fly home to Canada from Milan. I know that we will be backtracking to Milan after passing through it on our leg from Geneva to Venice. I know the trip from Geneva to Venice is about 7 hours long (by train). After bandying about several versions of travel paths, we believe our interests are best met using this routing. We will stay several days at each of our stops.

My question: is there a train pass (Eurail type pass) that will allow us access to France, Switzerland and Italy? We need the passes to be valid for 5 days only (if we use it for the Paris - Geneva - Venice - Florence legs). We would need 7 day passes if they were to be used for Paris - Geneva - Venice - Florence - Milan.

I believe we can work around the train scheduling. I am unsure if there is a cost-saving train pass that we can access.
