Train from Nice to Venice

Jump to last reply

A month or so ago I asked all of you savvy Fodorites for advice concerning train travel in Europe. The info I received was spot on and I thank all of you who responded. As we near our departure date I do have one final issue regarding train travel that is bugging me just a little bit. On Aug. 21st my wife and I wish to travel from Nice to Venice. I know from your previous advice that our route will be Nice-Monaco-Ventimiglia-Milan-Venice. I also know (or think I know) that I can't book this entire trip in advance. I think I can book the Nice-Monaco-Ventimiglia part but from what I can gather pre-bookings are not available for Ventimiglia-Milan-Venice until we arrive in Italy. If this is true then only when we arrive at Ventimiglia can we attempt to reserve seats on trains bound that same day for Milan and then to Venice. What's bothering me is whether or not this may present a problem. I'm well aware that this is the height of the tourist season and I'm wondering if seating will be scarce. In addition, we will be using Eurail passes on this journey and I have read that seating is limited for users of these passes. We have budgeted the entire day to get from Nice to Venice but at the end of the day I want to lay my head on a pillow in our hotel room in Venice and not be stranded in a train station somewhere along the way. Am I worrying over nothing? My wife says I am. Ever the optimist, she says there will be plenty of trains and this is a non-issue. Is she right? Neither of us have any experience riding the rails in Europe (we've always rented a car) so we really don't know what to expect. Gimme your thoughts and advice, PLEASE.
