Train Pis-Florence 1H13m 7,80E

First off, there is no such thing as Euro Rail so no one will have traveled it. Rail Europe, Eurail, etc, are all basically travel agencies selling train tickets in Europe and not train companies. If you want to take the train from Florence to Paris you go the bahn.de site scheduling information and buy your ticket at Trenitalia.com

As of this morning Trenitalia schedules beyond June 8 haven't been loaded yet, if you get a "no solution possible" message don't worry, keep checking every few days.

Cheryl, For checking rail schedules, the www.bahn.com/i/view/USA/en/index.shtml (German Rail) website is one of the most useful for researching trips in all parts of Europe. It has details for all the national rail operators - SNCF (France), Deutsche Bahn (Germany), Trenitalia (Italy), SBB (Switzerland) and OBB (Austria). However, I believe they only sell tickets for those trains originating in Germany (one of the others may have further information on that). I haven't checked, but the trip will likely involve Freccia trains from Florence to Milan, Intercity to someplace in Switzerland and then TGV to Paris. Although the Freccia and TGV travel at up to 300 kmH when they get going, that will still be a LONG travel day. A more efficient use of your holiday time would probably be a budget flight. I haven't checked flights from Florence, but you could consider an EasyJet flight from Pisa to Paris. Happy travels!
