venice to munich train

My family is taking the train from venice to munich and have a few questions that don't seem to be answered from the train websites. We'll be in Rome about a week before- do you think its best to get reservations then or wait until we get to Venice or book them now. When I look at the raileurope site at the details its says no access to lounge. Does that mean there is no food or drinks on the train? Trenitalia just gives me info on the night train. My gut tells me to book it in Rome so I can talk face to face with someone. Thoughts? thanks.

I can remember some years ago a young woman who was trying to book on the Munich to Venice night train over a month in advance and found all of the sleeping accommodations were sold out, only seats were left. If you wait until you are in Italy, you might find the train booked. BTW, you can get the best fares for that train on the German Rail website. If you book far enough in advance from the Bahn, you can get better fares than you can over there.

Steve: I'm sure you will be anxious to get to Munich but some of the most beautiful alpine scenery in the world lies between Venice and Munich in the Swiss Bernese Oberland. It's just indescribable, and I would highly suggest you stop off for a night or two on the way. It's hugely family friendly, too. We've take several groups and several family friends on trips to Europe and we always take them to Lauterbrunnen, Mürren, Wengen and the Jungfrau at the trip's end. Every single person we've ever brought has said that we definitely saved the best for last.

Thanks all for your input. We're renting a car in Munich and heading down to Fussen so I think we'll be seeing some of that beautiful scenery. Seems like we got a good deal on the train, 103 euros for 2 adults and a teen.
