Subject: Paris to Venice Night Train
Hello Ziners -

Has any one taken the night train from Paris to Venice? We are flying into Paris on October 9 and plan to take the night train to Venice on Saturday, October 11. Near as I can tell from the internet, the trip takes about 12 hours and second class costs about $110, not including reservations and couchette. Think we should make reservations now or just wait until we are in Paris and handle it then? Any tips for sleeping on the train? We took a couchette car (6 bunks to a compartment) from Chamonix to Paris back in January 2000 and it was an adventure but not very restful.
