Overnight Train from Paris to Rome

Jump to last reply

I'm doing some advance planning for a possible trip for spring/2014 to Paris (4-5 nights), then a stop off in Tuscany to see some friends in Monticchiello (2 nights or so), and on to Rome by car (we'll rent a car in Florence and drop it off in Rome) for 3-4 nights. This will be our first time in Paris, but my wife and I are fairly familiar with Tuscany and Rome. It appears as though Thello offers a reasonable fair on the overnight train from Paris to Rome (generally well under 100 euro).

I'm looking for thoughts from persons who have actually taken this, or a similar, train. Specifically, how dependable is it time wise? How's the 6 couchette/4 couchette setup as far as comfort? Any thoughts are appreciated.

P.S. I know some will recommend flying via RyanAir, etc., but I really don't want to go through the trouble of flying, and most of the discount airlines only fly into Rome, not Florence.
