Night Train from Paris to Rome

My friend and I are going to Paris in June and would like to take the train from there to Rome. Are there still night trains that run from Paris to Rome? I was reading online that they might be discontinued. If there are any, what would be the best website to book the train through?

Thank you in advance for your help!

No real night train that I am aware of, at least it does not show up on the DB trip planner. The mainline rail link between France and Italy is still closed by a landslide that happened last year.
There is a night train to Nice, but when you arrive in the morning, you are still 9 hours and several train changes from Rome.

They were discontinued many years ago by now, and the blockage on the Paris-Turin route means that the only viable rail route is a daytime route through Switzerland. Unless you have time/interest in stopping over in Switzerland for a day or two, I would fly.
