Buy Train tickets online or at the station?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, i will be taking a train from Nice to Ventimiglia(Italy border) and then from Ventimiglia to Pisa in June. When change trains in Ventimiglia, I only have 15 minutes to do this. Because of this short change time, I am wondering which option i should take.

1. Buy the tickets for both trains in Nice (Am i allowed to buy Italian train tickets in France?). Are they able to validate both tickets in Nice so I do not have to validate it in Ventimiglia?

2. Buy the tickets online and have them validate it in Nice(again can they validate both?) If i have to validate the ticket at Ventimiglia, i do not think i have enough time for that.)

Thanks all
