Hello everyone! First off, I’ve never been to Europe and am attempting to plan a 16-day trip for my family in July. I am planning on purchasing a 10-Day Global Pass and started punching in the routes in the “Search Train Times in Europe” feature on this website to get an idea of travel time as well as which legs would require a reservation.
Everything seemed pretty reasonable until I looked at Rome to Cannes (or anywhere in that area). It appeared that the travel time was over one day! On the app, it indicated that was about two days!
- is this accurate or am I reading something wrong
- I know that it may be an issue of which rails Eurail has access to. Is it common to purchase faster tickets separately for situations such as this?
- If so, what is the most reputable website to do so?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I consider myself relatively resourceful but am finding this process overwhelming, so I’m sure this won’t be my last post.
Tentative outline of trip: Paris -> Hamburg -> Prague -> Munich -> Rome -> Southern France -> Paris
