Dear Ramon,

Thank you for your question.

You will have to travel as follows:

-Paris - Basel -Interlaken -Lauterbrunnen (You will have to break and book your journey on our website)

- Lauterbrunnen - Interlaken -Spiez - Milan -Venice (You will have to break and book your journey on our website)

- Venice -Florence -Direct train

-Florence - Rome -Direct train

Eurail Select Pass 3 countries is the best pass to discover 3 bordering countries.

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

Despite having a pass reservations are mandatory with additional cost on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "seat reservation" & then 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.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!

Dear Aamir,

Thank you for your response, appreciate it! I have some additional questions though:

1. You say suggest Eurail Select Pass 3 countries for our trip, should we get the 5 days in 2 months since we have 4 days of travelling (Paris-Lauterbrunnen, Lauterbrunnen-Venice, Venice-Florence and Florence-Rome)?

2. So for shorter trips like train around Switzerland, we need to buy point-to-point tickets?

3. Is there an option for a scenic train in our itinerary, i.e. Lauterbrunnen-Venice?

Thanks again and looking forward to your reply.
