Hello Syed,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase point to point ticket for your travel.

You can book and travel as follows:

- Paris to Rome via Milan Thello and Frecciarossa trains.

- Rome to Venice Italo train.

- Venice to FlorenceFrecciargento train.

- Florence to PisaFrecciabianca train.

- Pisa to Geneva via Milan – Intercity and Eurocities trains.

Kindly note that Child age is from 4 to 11 years and Youth age is from 12 to 25 years. Hence 9 years will have to purchase “Child fare” and 12 and 16 years will have to purchase “Youth fare”.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Hello Syed,

Thanks for your reply.

A Pass is advised if you are travelling to more than 4 cities in a country. As you are travelling to few cites it is best to purchase point to point ticket.

Please note that pass does have additional expenditure at times, as only Intercity trains run by national railways can be boarded with the pass. When it comes to high-speed trains, scenic trains, night trains and trains crossing the countries (borders), reservations are mandatory and these reservations coast extra (Over and above the pass fares as pass does not include any reservations).

As per your Itinerary, the trains you will be travelling on are High Speed and Border crossing trains which require compulsory seat reservations.

However you can also compare the price of the Pass and point to point ticket and choose which one is more convenient for you.

Hope this helps!!!

Hello Syed,

Thanks for your reply.

If you do not have a printer to print your “Print @ home” tickets, you will have to print your tickets at an Internet café.

Hope this helps!!!

Hello Syed,

Thanks for the reply.

It is advised to purchase point to point tickets in advance of your travel date as you will avail confirmed seats in the train. Also, tickets purchased locally at the train station are subject to availability.

If the printing option for your sector is “Print @ home” you can print your tickets before your travel date as you will receive the ticket link via email.

“Print @ Home” tickets have to be printed on an A4 size paper and produced on the day of travel.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
