Okay, being honest, I'm not exactly sure how rail passes work. When they say "5 days" of travel, are they talking about days literally? If a trip takes two or three days, is that how it counts against your pass? And, this is hypothetically speaking, let's say I went to a place and the trip only took an hour or two, I got there, looked around, and hopped on a train to some place completely different, in the same day. Is that one day? And is the pass a card? Will someone have to mail it to me? (I'm in Russia, see, and the postal service here isn't exactly the Pony Express.) Or could I just pick one up somewhere, personally?

Thank you!

Lets say you plan to be in Italy for two weeks. You'll spend the first few days in one city before going to another, spend a few days there, go to another city for the day, but travel to a fourth city before the day is over, spend a few days there and return to your port-city.

You have spent five days traveling and will need a pass that covers five travel days while being valid for two weeks.

Does that clear it up?
