International Trains - Italy to Switz to Luxembourg questions?

Jump to last reply

I need to take a train from Milano to Luxembourg on July 11th. I can see several options on both the Trenitalia and the Swiss Rail sites. My question is how and when to buy the tickets. On the Swiss site it says you can pick them up at any station in Switzerland. My problem of course is that the trip starts in Milan so there is no way I could do that. On the Trenitalia site I don't see the option to buy the ticket (I can see the schedule, just no way to buy the ticket).

I will be in Italy for 9 days before I want to take the trip to Luxembourg. Would it be safe to wait till I got to Italy to buy the ticket? I will only be in Milano for four days - could I buy the ticket at the station in Verona which is where I'll be before Milano? For train travel within Italy I have always just waited till I got there and never had a problem but not sure about international train travel. Also, there is only one good train a day (without 3 or 4 changes) so I really don't want to miss that one.
