International train prices

Is there anyway to find out the prices of train tickets from a Swiss Destination to an International one? I'm sure the SBB site used to show this, but now it doesn't seem possible. I don't want to book the ticket online I just want a rough price estimation

Some destinations seem possible (Milan) but not others (Venice).

I have just noticed that the SBB home page options are different, depending on whether you select German or English. The "International" option is missing if you select English. However, you can still get to it but it is called "from Switzerland to Europe".

Here is an example for Venice (Venezia)

Re: International train prices

A great resource on all things train-travel related, with all the dos and donts. I've found it to be of immeasurable value.

For international timtebale connections I prefer the DB site. It's slightly better at finding trains than the SBB site. For bookings I tend to go the national sites of the relevant railways as there are often special deals and things that SBB don't know about. For example in Spain if you buy a return ticket it will cost less than two singles. Even if you buy a single and later buy the return leg, just showing the first leg will get you the discount on the second so that the tozal price will be that of a return. SBB don't seem to know anything about that and will sell you two unconnected singles even when you ask for a return.
