Hi everyone,

With the help from eurail.com (and having purchased the Eurail Global Pass), my trip itinerary is almost set… with the exception of transportation from NICE-MILAN on July 13th. The only options it gives me are a 15 hour ride with 4/5 transfers. In almost every book and website I searched, it says there’s a 5-hour direct ride available but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Can anyone suggest a possible way to get from Nice to Milan on the 13th of July?
(Morning or night, doesn’t matter)

I am leaving from Seoul with $4000 for 29 days
Zürich, Berne, Basel, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Venice, Milan, Zürich

I don’t know why the D-bahn site only shows really long itineraries, but there are trains that take roughly five hours (although they are not direct). You can find them here:

Where (what exact website) are you looking for the schedule? Bahn.de has been “weird” lately for routes between Italy and France and I assume that’s where eurail.com links for schedules. Not sure what the problem is. Use the individual national rail company websites for schedules, like SNCF for France as Augustin25 has suggested. The links are in a sticky at the top of this forum and under“transportation” on the “ travel tips” tab.
