i'm wondering when/how i should be purchasing our train tickets from venice to rome to get the best price (we are looking to travel early june, before the 10th). looking for a way to buy that is easy and will accept our credit card (AUS) and also, we don't have a working printer atm, so i can't print out the tickets at time of purchase. are june prices released yet and are mini fares able to be purchased now? can we even purchase mini fares months in advance or is that a fare you only purchase a few days ahead? 1st time to europe and booking this like this, it is so confusing!
what is the difference between buying on the trenitalia site vs the le frecce site? when i put in a date on the trenitalia site (say june 7th for example) it appears 2nd class is 76euro.. so does that mean all the cheaper fares are sold out?? it looks like only 5 options with 76 being the cheapest. we want to get there the fastest cheapest way. so i was assuming 2nd class es av FRECCIARGENTO train, is that correct?
i know this question is asked very often, so i appreciate if you take the time to reply.
