Trying to find mini train fares!

About two weeks ago I tried booking flights from Ancona to Florence for may 26, and Florence to Naples for may 29. The train italia site said that no fares were available yet, but I f I signed up to their email, I would receive a notification when these would become available, at 60% discount.

When I tried looking again this morning, it seems as though these tickets are now available for the huge price of €54 and €72 each.

How is it possible to find the cheap mini fares??

Keep in mind that mini fares are available for a number of places only, so it can be possible that they are over for the trains you chose.

Once you have chosen a train, you have all prices listed there, mini fare is in the first colum. They changed the site at Trenitalia lately and now it's even easier to find themm, because you see all fares immediately. Or you can check your trains through the "Le Frecce" section of the site.

Check a recent post by GAC, it features lots of infos about mini fares: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187791-i22-k51661…

BTW, I quicky checked you trains and for May 29th there are mini tickets available also at 9 euro.

I used www.trenitalia.it , I entered "Firenze" and "Napoli", the date you said May 29th and 8 as hour. Just that!

You can use also the link above, which is the one of "Le Frecce" section. Try again, hopefully it will work. ;)

Btw, you can try with names in Italian, some say that it's better like that.
