Beste way Brussels - Venice by train?

Hi everyone,

Does anybody knows the best way by train to Milano from Brussels ?

I found this :

Thalys Brussels - Paris Nord

TGV artesia Paris Gare Lyon - Milano

Eurostar Italia Milano - Venece

Is this a good way ?

Thanks !!

I suppose if you have time to spare, another option is (Paris) Bercy to Milan on the night train.

If you wanted to take a night train, also consider going via Frankfurt and Munchen - this option avoids crossing Paris with baggage on the RER+metro for Bercy, and is bookable all the way from Brussels on reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en? which also suggests a variety of other routes.

There are many different routes available. All journeys from Brussels to Venice seem to take between about 14 and 16 hours. See www.b-rail.com
