Questions about Euro Railways Trains ( Paris, Barcelona, Nice)

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I am new to this site, and I am in the process of planning a trip in October 2011 to Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Rome, Venice with a group of 7. I am trying to get your expert :-) opinions of the best way to travel around. I was on live chat with an Euro Railways agent today. I am trying to determine if getting the 3 country saver pass is the best option for us. I am wondering if we can do this on our own or do you guys recommend consulting a travel agency ( although I think it would be a waste of $$$) Below is our rough itinerary, please give your opinion concerning us getting the saver pass. The agent told me that the overnight trains are included in the saver pass, and that I had to get the reservations as well ( additional cost) and I just wanted your personal experiences if this was correct because I am certain that the conversation we had via live chat was auto-generated. :-)

Saturday night- Take Euro railways overnight train from Paris to Barcelona
Sunday night- Take overnight train back to Paris
Monday night- Take overnight train from Paris to Nice
Wednesday night- Take train from Monaco to Rome ( via www.raileurope.com trains)
Saturday Morning- Take Transitalia train to Venice for the day
Saturday Evening- Take euro railways train back to Paris

Also do you know of another way to get to Nice from Barcelona instead of having to go back to Paris?
Last thing, what are the gran class double cabins like? Can it accommodate 4 people
(2 people per bed)?

I really appreciate any light anyone can shed on these questions. :-)
