Hello Sandra,

Thanks for the question.

As there are no direct trains for your journey, you will have to break and book.

You can follow the below route:

- Arles to Geneva via Lyon - TER trains.

- Geneva to Milan - Eurocity train.

- Milan to Bologna - Frecciarossa train.

The booking horizon for your sector is 3 months prior your train departure date hence you can book accordingly.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
