Italian Train Questions

Jump to last reply

I will be in Venice, Perugia, Orvieto and Rome with my wife in mid-September.

We will be travelling by train.

1. Can I assume that tickets for all Regional and Regional Veloce trains can/should be purchased at the station the day of travel (or evening prior if convenient)? Is there a difference in price when you buy them?

2. Orvieto to Rome has some Intercity trains mixed in the schedule. In addition to being more expensive and usually somewhat faster, is there a difference when these are purchased (availability and price)?

3. The trains from Venice Santa Lucia to Perugia appear to be part Frecciargento and part Regional trains. What is the best (any chance of no availability or more / less expensive) way to purchase these?

We were in Florence a couple of years ago and I believe all day trips were on Regional trains. If I remember correctly I purchased all tickets from the automated machine just before travel. We do have a chip and pin card.
