Best mode of travel between Italian cities to avoid theft

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be spending 12 nights in Italy in early summer. We will fly into Venice and spend 3 nights before moving onto Florence for 3 nights, then Rome for 5 nights before concluding our trip with 3 nights in Positano. We will fly back out of Naples.

Our air and hotels are booked. Our transportation is not. Originally, my plan was to buy first class tickets on the trains, but I am reading loads of negative stories about theft on Italian trains. We are not unaware travelers, however, I hear the thieves are becoming more brazen and aggressive in Italy and I prefer not to be stressed out from worry over protecting my luggage on these trains. As we move from destination to destination, we will be forced to carry everything of value on the trains. (When I say value, I mean our passports, camera + lenses, and personal effects).

Is it true the luggage gets put on a separate car? Is there a better time of day to travel on trains? Can your luggage remain with you in First Class? Are certain trains better than others? I am thinking the high-speed trains, but I haven't researched the trains enough to know all the available options to my needed cities. Any advice?

Also, has anyone used a private car service for transport? The feedback I have gotten about Naples is disturbing and I'd rather just avoid the hassle of training from Rome to the Naples train center if I'm going to be harassed. My Positano hotel offers a car service from Rome to the hotel and, although more expensive, it may be worth the peace of mind?

Any advice would be appreciated, but please skip any snarky comments or condescending remarks. Thanks in advance for your time.
