Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

TGV & Italo/Frecciarossa

It is easy to travel by train from Paris to Naples. There is an overnight option, using the Thello night train from Paris to northern Italy and continuing the following morning on a daytime train to Naples. Yet many travellers prefer doing the journey entirely by day, using the following route.

Changing trains at Turin Porta Susa gives the best timings in both directions.

The journey starts by boarding a high-speed TGV from Paris to Turin. That train sweeps through Burgundy and the Alps, reaching Turin less than 5 hours after leaving Paris. In Turin, you join a high-speed train to Naples. This journey from Turin to Naples is on either an Italo or a Frecciarossa service. Both trains offer very high levels of comfort.

Paris to Turin

Fast TGV trains speed south from the French capital, cutting through Burgundy to reach Lyon, their first stop. After that, the pace slows as the terrain becomes more mountainous. All trains on this route stop at Chambéry and Modane before entering Italy, where the train makes two stops at Bardoneccia and Oulx.

Upon arrival in Turin, the high-speed trains from Paris stop at Porta Susa station, an easy 10-minute walk west of the city centre. Porto Susa affords an excellent range of onward connections - including high-speed services to Florence and Rome, as well as direct trains to Verona and Venice. The TGV from Paris continues beyond Turin Porta Susa to Milan, dawdling rather than dashing on the final leg of its long journey from Paris.

Torino Porta Susa to Naples Centrale

This 940-kilometre journey is almost entirely on state-of-the-art high-speed railway lines. Trenitalia’s Frecciarossa services leave three to five times each day from Turin Porta Susa station, taking 5 hrs 30 mins for the journey to Naples Centrale. NTV Italo offer three departures a day on the same route. Note that tickets are not usually interchangeable between the two companies. Milan, Bologna, Florence and Rome are the main cities on this journey from Piedmont to Campania.
