How does a Eurail Select pass work?

Question by tinytapper64: How does a Eurail Select pass work?
I want to travel between Italy and Switzerland and for that i need to at least get a 3 country select pass. I was wondering if i get that pass does that mean i can travel to and from those countries or just within them?
*** i would be traveling throughout italy, and going into switzerland and then coming back into italy also do i need to make reservations for trains or just go and show the ticket counter my eurail pass

It means unlimited travel in three countries for “x” number of days. Probably not worth it for a single trip. The train is a really expensive way to go. Book a flight on easyjet (Easyjet.com) instead. Rome to Geneva is about 90 euro one way for a flight tomorrow… only about 25 euro for a flight two months from now.
