Trains: Amsterdam - Paris, Paris - Florence or Orvieto

Jump to last reply

We've decided that next September we will fly into Amsterdam and take about a week traveling by train to Orvieto where we will pick up a car abd stay in a little town nearby.

I realize that it's been so long since we last traveled by train outside of Italy that I don't really know the ropes any more.

What is the proper name for the bullet trains that travel between AMS and Paris, and Paris and major Italian cities? Is there a problem with it when it crosses from France to Italy?

What is the best web site for booking these two trains? When will the schedules for fall 2012 be posted? What other info do I need to do this right?

Thanks for your help.
