I have been looking into trains that will take me on the journey from Riomaggiore to Paris. So far, the most direct (and most convenient) seems to be from Riomaggiore to Milan, then Milan to Paris in a overnighter. Here are my questions:
1) Is there a train that actually goes from Riomaggiore directly to Milan? I'm just concerned as to whether the Riomaggiore departure city is, indeed, the correct departure city, if that makes sense.
2) For the overnighter from Milan to Paris, I will be traveling with one other female traveler. We want a private "compartment" in the train with two beds. We are wondering if we book the tickets together and choose "letto in cabina a 2 - donna," that will accomplish the task. When we did that on trenitalia.com, it gave us the same coach number, but seats 51 and 55. this made me believe that we were in the same compartment, but I want to make sure that there will be no one else in that coach with us.
Thank you in advance for your responses!
