Train from Paris to Florence, then to Rome

by rachma10

Hello! If we are traveling from Paris to Florence and then from Florence to Rome, what do you suggest as far as transportation via train? We need to take an overnight train from Paris to Florence and a daytime train from Florence to Rome. Do you suggest purchasing a rail pass in advance, as well as a separate ticket for the night train (such as the Artesia night train)? Or is it better, or more cost effectice, to purchase the tickets once there? Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you so much!!!

Florence to Rome can be purchased the day of the trip. It's not that far. about 90 minutes if I recall. You can just pick it up at the station.

As others have suggested the Florence-Rome trip is quite short (1.5hrs) and from experience trains go hourly but no need to pre book.

I dont know what type of sleeping arangements you are after on the night train but if you are wanting a deluxe cabin to yourself I would book as soon as possible. If you are happy with a sleeper seat then perhaps you could wait. I personally always book train trip in advance and have got some good deals this way.

Eurail is not a train operator, it is a ticketing agency and its passes no longer the budget option they once were. It is unlikely that any pass will be worthwhile unless you intend to do a great deal of travelling by train over long distances in a short amount of time.

In your case, this is not so. You most definitely do not need to purchase any type of Eurail pass, even if you want to take daytrips by train once you are in Italy. Itwill be a waste of money (and the passes, by the way, still require supplements for seat/sleeper reservation and for the fastest trains).

You can buy the Florence>Rome ticket on the day you travel. Services are frequent, and ticket machines are easy to use with English language options. Train times, details and fares in English here;

The Paris>Florence overnight segment you should book online well in advance (as I assume you want a sleeper or couchette?). Unfortunately, this will almost certainly mean you using the English language version of

which automatically takes you to Raileurope, also not a train operator but a ticketing agency, which will charge you commission on the fare.

I think you will have to bite this bullet (unless you can manage the booking on the French version) because if you leave booking an overnight sleeper until you arrive you have a good chance of spending the night in an ordinary seat (depending on when you are travelling, of course).

Flying with a budget carrier is indeed a feasible option. will give you carriers and routes, cheapest fares for your dates.

Many budget carriers fly to Pisa airport rather than Florence, but it's an easy journey by bus or train into Florence (about an hour).

Remember that cheapest fares are booked well in advance. Hold baggage limits are strict: 20kg for most, 15kg for Ryanair. Check-in times are eqaully strict: a couple of minutes late at check-in or the gate and you will miss your flight with no refund.

But it may well be considerably cheaper to fly than to take an overnight sleeper, so it's well worth investigating.

Travel Tips for Paris

Roses for beautiful ladies

by VincentJJ

10 Husbands

A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle; I'm still a virgin.

What?" said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?

"Well, husband #1 was a Sales Representative; He kept telling me how great it was going to be.

Husband #2 was in Software Services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.

Husband #3 was from Field Services; he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

Husband #4 was in Telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, didn't know when he would be able to deliver.

Husband #5 was an Engineer; he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.

Husband #6 was from Finance and Administration; he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

Husband #7 was in Marketing; although he had a product, he was never sure how to position it.

Husband #8 was a psychiatrist; all he ever did was talk about it.

Husband #9 was a gynecologist; all he did was look at it.

Husband #10 was a stamp collector; all he ever did was ......God, I miss him!

"But now that I've married you, I'm really excited!"

"Good," said the husband, "but, why?"

"Because, you're a LAWYER. This time I KNOW I'm gonna get SCREWED!!"

Paris Tip

by ejroberts

I love walking in Paris, especially at night. It allows you to feel the pulse of the city and savor its hypnotic spell. On my last trip we took the subway to the Eiffle Tower. Rather than taking the subway back to our hotel near the Louvre, we decided to walk. We walked from the Eiffle Tower to the Arc de Triomphe then all the way down the Champs-Elyees past the Place de la Concord and the Louvre to our hotel. It was a long walk taking several hours, but I loved every minute of it. The only negative thing was that I was dubbed the drill sergeant by my family who thought it was more of a forced march than a night to remember.


by hevbell

My fondest memory from my first trip is of the night that we arrived at our hostel (HI hostel Cites de Sciences) and met up with a Canadian girl and two American guys and we all went to listen to one of the guys play bongos in the park (the Cites de Sciences as we later found out) with a bunch of locals. Oh and running out of a department store to get away from some creepy guy from Martinique who wanted to be our 'Paris boyfriends' :)

Picnic in the Park

by fishandchips

The French, it seems, are great for having a few morsels to eat and drink in their local park and taking their time over such delights. I stayed in the Latin Quarter which didn't appear to have many such places but I was surprised at the number of people taking up space in the many small parks. When I did a walking tour of the Marais I found a much larger spot for these activities at Place Des Vosges which had quite a few people sitting on the grass and enjoying some food while chatting.

With the large number of bakeries and easy supply of wine, beer (if you prefer) and food at almost any dairy (7/11 or whatever you call it in your home town) it's easy to take part in this cultural icon.

Packing List

by lolitajane

Well, it all depends on how you are planning to move around in the city...If you want to be comfortable and practical you must definetely carry a backpack, if you are smart enough you´ll be able to pack all your stuff in there!!! Now, if you want your clothes not to get wrinkled you'd better carry a piece of luggage, but face the consequences: at many times, (i.e. when climbing stairways) you'll want to get rid of it, but remember that your belongings are there! In springtime, carry warm clothes and a few sweaters to wear at night..There are great sales, so you´ll have the chance to buy markdown clothes. Band Aids, aspirins, the usual stuff.
