I would like to hear your advice on my travel plans.
Hope to be able to make this trip in the months of May, June or at the latest in September 2022.
Have a global pass, 4 days within 1 month.
My journey will start in Belgium, my home country.
There I will take the train in Essene, Liedekerke or Denderleeuw.
I want to use the Nightjet connections to Italy, and would like to travel to Rome because this is the southernmost connection that can be reached by Nightjet.
From Brussels I would then travel to Munich with ICE.
From Munich I then take the Nightjet to Rome, arriving in Rome at 9.10 am.
Hopefully if the Nightjet isn't delayed, I'd like to take a trip to Naples too. This would only be 1 hour away by train.
I would also like to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa (if there is enough time)
The 3rd day that we use the interrail pass, we have to arrive in the village, La Cure, in Switzerland. My brother comes to pick us up there by car, he lives in Les Moussieres, France.
It is a 30 minute car ride from the station, La Cure, to my brother's house.
I still have to check with my brother what the best hours are for him to pick us up at the station in La Cure, but I suspect, either before 5:00 PM ... or between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
Please advise whether it is best to take the ICE to Munich from Brussels? This is with a layover in Frankfurt, if I'm not mistaken.
Do you recommend making a reservation in the ICE when traveling in 1st class?
This then specifically on the connections:
Brussels - Frankfurt Airport
Frankfurt Airport - Munich HBF
And what's the best way to travel / travel comfortably / possibly that we can eat on the train, to La Cure, from Italy ?
This from the vicinity of Naples, Rome, Pisa, ... , since we don't have any concrete plans yet and can therefore change them, in order to easily get to La Cure.
Thank you very much!
