I'm travelling next Sunday (3/16) to Florence. Several posts say that its best to wait and buy tickets in Rome b/c Trenitalia probably won't accept my USA credit card.
Does anyone know if the trains are likely to sell out or the fares go up the closer you get to departure ? I looked at the trains for this coming weekend (3 day advance purchase) and they appear to be same price.
Is it difficult for me to go to Rome train station after I arrive in Rome and buy the tickets a few days in advance ?
Are there local ticket offices that might be closer to my hotel (than the main train station) ?
