Taking an overnight train - what are couchettes like?

Jump to last reply

We (2 couples) are planning on taking an overnight train from Munich to Rome next April. To save money we are thinking of booking a 4-person couchette. I've seen pictures but can't tell how big the couchette is. Will 4 adults be really cramped? Is there any privacy?

Before anyone says anything, I don't expect to get a lot of sleep. We took an overnight train a few years back from Vienna to Rome, in a private sleeper compartment, so I know how overnight trains work and all about the lack of sleep. This time I'll be coming equiped with Ambien!

Thanks!
Tracy
