|Subject: Re: Italian French Railway Pass|
Graziella and Ziners,
What you saw on railsaver site is a new "France combo pass",
available for traveling from France to Italy (or to Switzerland or to
Spain.) You may go to http://www.ricksteves.com/rail/france.htm
and click on the link on "combo passes" to see more details.
Reservation costs very, usually about $3 to $5 per person per reservation if you reserve from an European rail station. Sometimes it's $5 per reservation for the whole group. It looks like your train days are not long distance, so you will need to add them up to see if point-to-point tickets will be more econimical for you.
The last time I ordered my railpass from Rick Steves' store, they gave me choices of a free travel book per passenger, so I got 5 of his travel books for free. But I see now he only throws in one of his DVD and some free maps, no longer travel books. http://www.ricksteves.com/rail/freebies.htm
