travel from ancona,Italy to Munich

Hi,

Can anybody please tell me what is the cheapest option to travel from Ancona, Italy to Munich. I will be traveling in last week of April 2007.

Is there a overnight train option ? How much will it cost. The die bahn website does not list the total cost for the train ticket -so I am not sure.

Hi travelbug1: You would check the trenitalia.com website: http://orario.trenitalia.com/b2c/Tim...5&channel=tcom
for the Italian trains, since leaving from Ancona, Italy.

For the last week in April, I chose the random date of April 25 and found there is a train leaving at 7:40 am, takes 10 hours/35 mins and arrives in Munich at 6:15 pm. There are 3 other trains leaving at 8:15, 8:40, and 11:16 am. Alternatively, there is an evening/overnight train option that leaves at 7:13 pm, getting into Munich at 6:30 am. It doesn't appear that you can pre-purchase the tickets online so no prices indicated; however, it shouldn't be a problem purchasing them directly at the Ancona train station on day of departure.

Lufthansa flies nonstop from Ancona to Munich (AOI - MUC). Putting in the arbitary April 25 date, a one-way ticket is $630, but if you make it a round-trip and include a Saturday night stay (I used May 3), the roundtrip ticket was $210. You could buy a roundtrip and just not use the other portion.

I too, could not get a price out of Trenitalia. But you can get a pretty good idea of the 2nd class fee by pricing on the Trenitalia site a ticket from Ancona to Bologna 19 Euro, Bologna to Fortezza Franzensfeste (last stop on Italian/Austrian border) 34.50 Euro, and pricing from Brenner (first stop Austrian side to Munich 39.60 Euro for a total of Euro 93.10. The night option described above by Huitres requires, as do all the options, that you switch trains in Bologna. The Bologna - Munich train does have couchettes and sleeping compartments, but I could not find a price.

Also, all the possible connections have portions with mandatory reservations, either IC, ES or EC trains. I wouldn't wait until the day of departure to buy the ticket - I'd buy it a few days ahead of time. Also each mandatory reservation will be an additional 6 Euros or therabouts.
