My daughter and I will be traveling to Italy and Austria in September and I'm totally confused about train tickets and reservations. We plan on taking trains between Rome, Florence, Pisa, Monterosso and Salzburg.
Does it save any money to book ahead of time? On the Trenitalia website I've noticed that some trains have Super Economy fares on some off peak travel. In general the fares (even the regular 2nd class fares) on their website are cheaper than Rail Europe and Eurail. But the Trenitalia website is a little confusing and some parts are only in Italian which I can't read!
So do I just book when I get there or try to figure it out ahead of time?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
