Buying TrenItalia rail tickets online.

I want to buy rail tickets from TrenItalia to travel from Rome to Florence, then Florence to Venice, then finally Venice back to Rome. How do I do this online from Sydney Australia?

1. Re: Buying TrenItalia rail tickets online.

You can go to their website, this one is in English. www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…

Then use the Italian names of the train stations

Rome is Roma Termini

Florence is Firenze S. M. Novella

Venice is Venezia S. Lucia

Put in an earlier hour like 7 to see more train options for a particular day.

When you purchase a ticket print your confirmation and travel with that to serve as your ticket when the train inspector comes around. A reserved fast train(Freccia) does not need ticket validation and will have your seat number on it as well.

I hope this helps

For the best prices, book shortly after tickets go on sale, usually 4 months before travel.

You could also use Trenitalia's competitor: www.italotreno.it
