Travel from Paris to Florence on 9 April 2017

I'm planning a train trip together with my wife from Paris to Florence on 9 April 2017 (overnight). May I know the difference between 1st class and 2nd class tickets and how do I select the cabin so that my wife and I will be in the same cabin?

Hello Jake,

Thanks for the question.

There are overnight trains for your travel from Paris to Florence.

- Paris to Florence via Milan - Intercity Notte and Frecciarossa train.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab which is below Add to Cart to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

For night trains, 1st class and 2nd class differ according to seat or sleeper. Once you click on Fare details tab you will get details about the train. Night train does have T3, T4 and T6 cabins depending on the class of service and train which you will come to know once you click on the Fare details tab. Kindly note, T3 is gender specific. Passengers cannot choose the cabin they wish to travel on as it is auto allocated by the managing railways.

According to the website, there are no Double Sleeper displayed for your travel date. If you wish to travel by Double Sleeper cabin, you can drop an email at "” and our team will check about the availability and assist you accordingly with an offline booking if available.

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!!!

Best Regards,
