boarding a train using "ticketless option from trenitalia

ok, I have got my rail ticket from rome to florence thru trenitalia site (15% off). I have opt for "ticketless" option with "payment receipt via email". I have printed it out.

it's my 1st time using rail transport in europe. can anyone tell me the detailed procedure (like do i need to get a change into a boarding ticket or just walk up the train, do i need to validate the ticketless printout, etc) so that i can reach florence in a least chaotic way.

thank you

truth is , you don't even need the print out (but since you have it, bring it with you).

all you need is the reservation code (PNR) and show it when they ask for the ticket.

personally, i just keep the email with the PNR on my phone and show that, but anything will do.

congratulate Desmond, you're one of the lucky one.

TIPS: take a close look at the reciept....

make sure the PNR#, coach and seat number is there.

Take note, as you'll need to go to the coach and reserved seat.

PNR# will be your prove (not the receipt).

Sure, all you need to know is where to sit (coach and seat number) and PNR.... If you have a good memory, even spelling it at the controller when asked would do..

Ok, maybe having the print with you is more practical.

Have a nice trip.

Ciao

Francesco
