I am going to be traveling in Italy next May for my honeymoon and I’m trying to set up my itinerary. I didn’t have any problems finding train routes from Rome to Florence but after we leave Florence, we plan to go to Cinque Terre. However, no routes show up when searching trains from Florence to La Spezia on Eurail. Additionally, after we leave La Spezia, we will head to Venice but I couldn’t find any routes for that either from La Spezia to Venice. What should I do about these two train trips?
I have a layover in Bologna for 4 hours and 11 minutes from the hours of 0109-0520. QUESTIONS.... 1) Can you sleep in the train station waiting area? 2) And if so, is it safe? 3) Also, any tips you could provide for staying for thise few hours IF you can not stay in the waiting area?Thank you in advance!
I saw the website stated that there is regional train from Milan to Tirano. Therefore, I’m planning to take train and then take the Bernina Express at Tirano. However, I saw the train journey is totally different during the early of December (2 hours) compare to the date that I travel (15 hours). Does the timetable accurate?

We then plan to ferry to storm nests for a day to so and then back to fly out of Edinburg, We plan to arrive in Belfast October 1,2023 and leave Edinburg October 13, 2023. We need advice about trains and Ubers or other ground transportation to the villages along the way.
Help!My plan for January involves several sleeper trains, until a few days ago these weren’t even on timetables. Now everything seems to have sold out almost instantly. Is there any way round this as it is deeply frustrating as it will mean altering all my plans. I am looking to do the following.9th January - either Brussels or Amsterdam to Munich15th January - Budapest to Brasov - this one doesn’t even seem to be possible without going overnight23rd January Bucharest to ViennaIs it now impossible to book sleeper or couchette places on these routes?If so, can anyone suggest alternative ways of getting between those places on at least roughly those dates?
Hi there! I am trying to see if train schedules from London to Brugge and Paris are available for my trip on April 2023, but I get the following answer: “we can’t find any trains that match your search”. Is this because schedules haven’t been released yet? I appreciate your help!
Hi,I am planning a trip in January next year which will go roughly. Germany-Austria-Hungary-Romania and then ideally back to the UK by a more southerly route. I have a couple of questions.The train times search on interrail.eu seems to only show certain trains - for example Vienna to Budapest only shows a train departing at 19:42 each evening but the OBB and Deutsche Bahn websites show multiple trains through the day. Is the pass only valid on the 19:42 or is this a problem with the website?Second does anyone know of any onward options from Romania? Whatever timetables I look at seem to show that I can go as far as Sofia in Bulgaria and no further. Otherwise from either Bulgaria or Romania the only option appears to be to retrace my steps to Budapest. Do any trains run west to Serbia or North Macedonia?
Hi friends!I decided to extend my trip in Saint Malo by two days instead of staying overnight in Mont St. Michel.I’m seeing a few Railplanner options from Gare Saint Malo to Mont Saint Michel but the way back looks pretty meager. Also can’t find the routes on SNCF or DB or Trainline app.I know the Railplanner is only updated once a month but wondering if i’m missing something or if I just need to call it quits. I’d like to go tomorrow 28/10 and I am heading to Lille on 29/10 and it’s surprisingly faster and more direct to go to Lille from St. Malo than Rouen (capital of Normandy and halfway to Lille!). So shocked.Can anyone please help me figure out if this plan is feasible? I’d really like to do a day trip to visit Normandy and be able to make it back to St Malo for my last night in Bretagne. Thanks in advance! Edited to add:the ones i saved in railplanner are:10:30 - 12:14 for under 2 hours.. then the returns are basically a 48 min ride at 13:41 (gives me no time to explore)or 18:47
Hi! I’m traveling to Lille from St malo and booked the only seat reservation left from 15:39 29/10 Saturday It’s refundable so I can explore my options.I’m wondering if there are any other train stops that I can look into stopping through so that I can arrive earlier. I tried Versailles and booking individual from Rennes to Paris but no luck. Are there any other stations that I can intentionally stop through to arrive to my final destination earlier? I just don’t know that much about train stations and I’m having a hard time finding that information, but this community has been really helpful in the past with giving me other alternate routes to take. Thank you! PS. Train strikes When there are train strikes, does that mean we should completely take alternate transit like Uber? on the day I leave London Heathrow, there are train strikes and I believe the metro is also not working that day, 3/11 November 3. I’m staying over an hour away LHR by train and metro as is, so I want to be prepa
Hi just wondering if you have a trip on one day with multiple train changes and only some sections of that trip require a seat reservation my question is - do you just hope that there are seats on the trains for the other sections that don’t require seat reservations? Thanks for your help.
I am getting a Eurail Global Pass and I am wanting to go from Holyhead Wales to Dublin Ireland. Of course it is a Ferry ride to get there. 1) Does the Eurail Global Pass cover this ferry boat ride?2) How do I enter a ferry in to the Trip Planner? When I enter the two cities and hit search it tells me "There is no train that matches my search"Thank you in advance
First off, I am purchasing a 15-day/2-month Global Pass2 questions…1) If I leave one city (Amsterdam) at 0800hr, arrive at another city (Cologne) at 1045hr. I then stay there to explore for a couple of hours. Then leave Cologne at 1248hr headed to my third city (Berlin) arriving at 1715hr. QUESTION... Because I am taking 2 separate trains on the same day (before midnight), will this be considered one trip (15-1=14) or two days (15-2=13)? 2) I am leaving at 2237 from one city (Berlin) arriving in another city (Lyon) at 0735. During this trip there are 3 changes of trains that AFTER midnight. QUESTION... Will each of the changes AFTER midnight plus the initial day count as all separate day (15-1-1-1-1=11) or Will it only be two separate days (15-1-1=12) or because it is one TRIP (Berlin to Lyon) it will only count as one day (15-1=13)?Thank you very in advance!!
Hi, Will be visiting Austria end of the year and we will be purchasing the Eurail pass. Would like to know where the first class cabins are located in the train. Are they at the front or end of the trains? If we are to wait at the platform for the train to arrive, how do we tell which part of the platform we should be standing to wait for the train? We are travelling with some senior citizens and we hope we can know where the 1st class cabins are located so that we would not have to run and rush when the train arrives and realising that we are actually waiting at the wrong end of the train. By the way are we able to walk through the train carriages?
Hi, Me and my friend are currently traveling with a Interrail Global Pass. Right now we are in Italy, and would really like to go to Greece already in this week. We have tried to look up the train- and busstations in Greece, but it doesn’t seem like the easiest task, to figure out how to get from place to place in Greece. Has any of you tried to travel with Interrail in Greece, and know how to get around? We are really i some desperate need of help! Thanks

We are arriving into Roma Termini but need to get to Roma Trastevere. It looks like an easy shot with one train but that does not pop up in the app. Any one know if that train would be included on our Eurail pass or is that a city train that is not included?
The 1975 Interrail trip I was brought up in Mastrick, an Aberdeen council housing estate, in the early 60s with my mum Elizabeth a nurse, my dad Angus a bricklayer and my older brother, Kenneth. In primary and secondary school, I always enjoyed geography: in primary it was the map of the world, flags and capital cities, and at secondary it was looking at cultures, rivers, mountains, deserts and natural disasters. Like many others at that time, my interest in countries, cultures and famous attractions were common, perhaps because they were not accessible, and it was another world away.One major influence came when I picked up the National Geographic when I was in the waiting room for an appointment. This publication opened the world to me. What I read was magical; the photography was literally out of this world. In the 1960s, all these well-known European countries and cities were a dream away, like so to many of my school friends and neighbours. There was not a lot of money around and
Hello and thank you for allowing me to join this group 🙂I have a question about using the Benelux card and if this specific topic has already been discussed, I apologize, and ask for the link to be sent to me, please!My question: I know I can use the Benelux card to go from Amsterdam to say Brussels but I just need to understand if I can use it to travel WITHIN the Netherlands, e.g. from Amsterdam to Rotterdam. Please advise, thank you so much!
