Suggestions for how to train-travel in France and Italy

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling in mid-May to France and Italy. We will be there for 14 nights. Here is the plan:
Paris: 3 nights, leave for Nice (by train)
Nice: 2 nights, leave for Italy (Cinque Terre) (train)
Cinque Terre: 2 nights, leave for Florence (train)
Florence: 2 nights, leave for Venice (train)
Venice: 1.5 days (leave for Rome on the evening train)
Rome: arrive in Rome in the morning and stay 1 night, leave the next day for home!

If we are on a budget and want to travel by train, what's the best way to 1. buy the train tickets or pass; 2. What type of ticket/pas should we buy? (I've heard of buying point-to-point tickets or a France-Italy Pass). Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
