Paris to Interlaken, Interlaken to Venice

Hello, We will be traveling from Paris to Interlaken, and then after staying in the Alps for a few days, we will be traveling from Interlaken to Venice. I am trying book train tickets, and want to make sure I have all the stations right. So from Paris to Interlaken: Paris - Basel - Interlaken East From Interlaken to Venice:
Interlaken East - Spiez - Milan - Venice Does this sound right? Thank you very much! Hannah

Not seeing your ticket, I'd say it sounds about right.

Hannah, you will need to be a bit more specific on the train stations on the train websites. They are fine in English for us but on www.sbb.ch, the Swiss train website, Basel is Basel (no change) and Interlaken East is Interlaken Ost. To get to Venice on www.trenitalia.com, the Italian train website, Milan is Milano Centrale. There are several other Milano train stations. For Venice, it's Venezia Santa Maria Lucia or Venezia S. Lucia.

Larry, Thank you!! I am trying to get train tickets, and realize that there are several main stains in one city. It seems I need to buy tickets from one city to another all individually, instead of buying them through one venue. Does that sound right to you? H

Hannah, it sounds OK. Each country has its own train system and website. You actually can travel between countries without difficulties. Actually, you can buy a ticket from Muerren to Venice on the Swiss train website. Here's a link to what I see on www.sbb.ch http://gyazo.com/42431218ca04ccaa866ffe0c14983e3d However, I have been seeing 30-day limits on the Swiss website. I see your new post asking about this. I'm curious on the answers.

Larry, Thanks for this helpful link! This is exactly how we are going to travel from Murren to Venice. I tried it on the date we want, and the site indicated that the trains in Switzerland are not available at this point... H

What are your dates of travel. Generally you cannot purchase ticket more than 60 to 90 days out. That maybe why the Swiss tickets are not available.
