1st post - probably of many!
Bit of background...taking wife on 3 weeks 'driving' holiday. Hoping to stay in Central Italy for the middle week so looking for a Villa with Pool around Fabro Scalo/Orvieto. Picked these locations as I'd prefer to park the car and travel around by train for a few days. 2 main cities wife wants to visit are Florence and Rome - both of which on the regional line going through the above. So down to the questions:
Does anyone know or know where I can find out, what facilities are at the above stations? We've no Italian language skills at all so if no auto ticket machines want to at least gen up a bit to make an effort when asking for tickets. Always found in France for example that as long as you make some sort of effort you get a far more positive reaction - even when you're actually talking gibberish!
Secondly, any recomendations on italian trains in general or specifically about this regional Florence to Rome line?
Any comments much appreciated.
P.S. Will be posting elsewhere on the site for any suggestions on the trek down from Nothern France in week 1 and back up to Amsterdam in week 3!!
