Dukey - are you sure all tickets are chageable like that -= what about Prem type fares - thought they were for one specific train only.

Maybe i'm mistaken or are you saying they will even change such a ticket for you if your connecting train is late?

not something i would count on.

Thanks for the encouragement, Ira - I think we'll be fine.

(But it really is amazing to me that SNCF basically chose the two trains - all itineraries we viewed had short connection times - for us and charged us for the tickets, yet apparently if the first train is too late for us to make the connection on the second train, they have no responsibility to get us on the next train!)

As I said in an earlier post, I am not going to keep stressing over this whole thing. If we don't make the connection, we will buy tickets for a later train, put our bags in a locker, and go see the Duomo in Milan.

We've traveled enough to know that unanticipated glitches often bring unexpected adventures our way.

Hi SC,

>yet apparently if the first train is too late for us to make the connection on the second train, they have no responsibility to get us on the next train!

IIRC, you have a ticket to Milan and another ticket from Milan.

No one, taxi, airline, train or ship, takes any responsibility for getting you from pt A to pt B in time to get a conveyance to C.

If you are ticketed from A to C with a stop in B, then the carrier has to get you on the next conveyance - usually.

Enjoy your visit.
