Italian Train Travel - Milan, Bellagio, Florence, and Rome

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Italy in late July for our honeymoon. We will be flying into Milan-Malpensa airport and traveling from there to Bellagio. After Bellagio we are taking the train to Florence for a few days and from there we are taking a train to Rome. We will be flying out of Rome Fiumicino.

I have a few questions regarding train travel. First, our plan is to take a train from Milan-Malpensa to Milan-Centrale to Varenna and then take a ferry to Bellagio. Can anyone let me know if there is a website to get more information regarding these train trips? I have looked on trenitalia but can not figure out this part of the journey.

Second, do we need to book train tickets between our destinations ahead of time? If I book on trenitalia's website how does the process work? Can we print from home or are we picking the tickets up at the station beforehand? Is it better to just buy tickets at the station when we get there or will tickets be sold out? These are our travel days: arrive Milan Tuesday, July 24 and travel to Bellagio. Depart Bellagio for Florence Friday, July 27. Depart Florence for Rome Monday, July 30. If we buy them in Italy can we get all of the our train travels tickets at our first stop in Milan or do we need to be in the city to get a ticket from that station?

Finally, what are the different classes? On the trenitalia website, I see first class, first class solatino, and second class and in each of those categories I see base, economy, and super economy. I have no idea which tickets we should be looking at purchasing. Any information or suggestions anyone has for the train ticket levels we should be purchasing would be wonderful.

Thank you all so much!
