We just purchased global Eurail first class passes and trying to understand how to reserve travel for rail/train and ferry from Rome, Italy to Mykonos, Greece. It’s my understanding the ferries are included and would appreciate insight and specific details. Thanks!

You get a discount on ferries between Italy and Greece. Here's the link to the benefit portal with information about the ferries.

You need to travel to one of the ports on Italy’s Adriatic coast - Venice, Ancona or Bari - and then get a ferry to Greece. You then need to travel overland to Athens for a ferry from Piraeus to Mykonos.

Seat 61 describes the journey options quite well

i found that I could get the Interrail discount into the booking page on Blue Star Ferries, and it seemed to be offering quite a decent discount.
