How to reserve train seats in advance?

Jump to last reply

Hi Folks. I wondering if you can help me to figure out a couples questions, or maybe i have to say couple concerns, this is the situation:
After spent a couple hours browsing on the Internet, I could not find any website that I allow me to reserve train seats in advance. I planning to travel to Europe next Octuber, using an eurail select pass - 5 countries.
This is my itinerary
Roma - Paris
Paris - Benelux(Netherlands)
Benelux-Germany
Germany -Switzerland
Switzerland - Roma

Now, working on this in advance, I was trying to figure it out, what could be the best train rounte for Roma to Paris. So I found the following

Roma Termini - Milano Centrale - Paris Gare Lyon

Everything fine at this point, however, reading about the route EN 220 (Milan-Gare de Lyon), I saw that i require a seat reservation, so I according with Rick Steves, the www.raileurope.com is the place where you can do this, so i went to the web site, however after find the route on there, i could not see any way to resever the seats. So, Am I doing something wrong here?
Finally, I ready several posts on here, I am saw a lot people having problems reserving seat on night train.

I will apreacite if somebody can explain how does it work. Thank you very much.
