Re: Train trip
Rick Steves website www.ricksteves.com has great information about rail passes. Your pass will be either 1st class or 2nd class, not both. Sleepers are not included in rail passes, just train travel. High speed trains and some others require mandatory reservations in addition to the rail pass. www.raileurope.com allows you to purchase reservations in advance or you can get them in Europe. Eurail passes must be purchased in America before you leave (or so I've always read). Flexipass saver passes allow two or more people to travel together at a reduced rate. However, you must travel together at all times on the train. Not all intercity trains are covered by Eurail. For example, Circumsuviana trains in Italy are not. Not much difference between 1st and 2nd class. I have traveled extensively by train in Europe and love it! Most trains are dead on time. Rick Steves website directs you to another website where you can check train times and that info is available on raileurope website also. Good luck!
