Info needed on trains from Torino to Paris, France

Hi. I am trying to find fares from Torino to Paris, France on TGV and Trenitalia's website, but can't make head's or tails of it. TGV doesn't have an English version and can't figure out Trenitalia's. Could use some advice.

Thanks!

TGV's English version is at www.tgv-europe.com/en/ Put your 'ticket collection country' as Antarctic not USA to avoid automatic diversion to the more expensive Rail Europe. Enter Turin not Torino. The tickets are print-at-home.

The direct trains are not sold by trenitalia.

Thank you. Curious - what is 'collection country?"

'Ticket collection country' is the title of the box on the homepage, where a drop-down menu asks you what one presumes is where you want your tickets delivered if not buying a e-ticket (which is not always possible). `Presumes', because physical ticket collection is not normally available outside France.

What you put into this box determines what delivery and payment options are available to you on the site, and whether you are going to be bounced (with or without a choice, depending on country) into one of SNCF's overseas subsidiaries which will bill in other currencies and which often charge higher rates for fewer travel options.
