Another Trenitalia ticket question

Jump to last reply

Now that the June schedules are loaded, my question is does anyone know if from experience, is this the full schedule from city to city? Or do they typically still fill in times that may have been on the previous schedule?

We're trying to get from Venice to Florence before 9:30 am on June 18th (we have a scheduled tour set up at 10:30) and on the winter schedule there was a 6:04, 6:39 and ideally for us a 7:39 that arrived at 9:30 that had no connections. All three of those are not listed at this time. There is now a 5:17 that gets to Florence at 7:30 and a 8:30 that gets in at 10:40, which is too late for us.

So, we're debating just booking the 5:17 just to have our plans solid at this point - sure I know June is still a little more than a month away - but it's nice to have the plans done at this point. Or waiting to see if more trains open. Will they? I keep rationalizing that 7:30 is early for a train to leave, so what's the difference if we have to get up for that vs. 5:00 am! And that will give us some time to drop our bags at our hotel and wander around a bit before our tour begins. We really only have about 24 hours in Florence before we leave so it would be a rush to get there, but a leisurely quiet time in the morning once we got there, if we had to be there that early. Maybe?

We tried the new italotreno line and the earliest one gets in at noon.

Thanks!
