I'm planning for my trip to Europe and I'm having trouble figuring out how to puchase tickets for my transportation in advance. :/
I'll be travelling to: Pisa, Florence, Rome, Milan, Barcelona, Paris, Dusseldorf, and Malmo, Helsingborg, and Jonkoping in Sweden within 1 month.
So at first it seemed like getting a rail pass (global 10 days in 2 months) would be the best option - but it seems like some of the point to points are the close in price to tickets w/ the pass. Also, sometimes it will give me a price for w/railpass and then not give me anything for w/o railpass. Rail Europe is confusing... and I tried bahn.de but it never gives me any prices.
The only tickets I'm really worried about getting in advance are Milan to Barcelona and Bar to Paris (both overnight trains - we want a couchette or sleeper).
Where is the best place to purchase those and will I be fine not purchasing the rest until I'm there?
Thanks SO much in advance!! I really appreciate it! :)
