European train passes - help from a rail interpreter?

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling across 4 countries by train. I have found which trains and times (if I've got it right?) and it appears best to buy a pass for myself and 2 adult daughters (both under 25yrs). But I can't work out which one/s? There are so many..... Plus, I am also not sure if a Eurostar train between London & Paris is part of the same European pass package?

I've spent hours looking for information (of which there is plenty), but I'm confused with it all and feeling pretty dumb.

I can't even figure out how to work the online booking to get a quote on the cost of some tickets (eg Italy)?

Is there a train guru out there, with patience for the uninitiated? Our train itinerary is as follows;

mid September maybe 2 day trips near London - Train -London Metro

18 September INTERCOUNTRY London to Paris - train - Eurostar

end September maybe x 2 day trips outside of Paris eg Versailles - train Paris Metro line

30 September INTERCOUNTRY Paris to Thun Switzerland (via Geneva) TGV and Inter City (IC) (2 x transfers during transit)

1 October INTERCOUNTRY Thun to Venice (via Milan transfer) - train - Eurocity and Eurostar Italy (1 x transfer during transit)

4 October Venice to Florence - train - Trenitalia (high speed FRECCIARGENTO)

8 October Florence to Rome- train - Trenitalia (high speed FRECCIARGENTO)

Any advice is welcome.
