Italy, Afraid to Rely on Regional Trains

Jump to last reply

We're a family of four arriving in Venice on June 29, then traveling to Bolzano via Verona on June 30, then on to Salzburg via Innsbruck on July 1. I'd like to accomplish this all by regional train, to save money, and to not have to lock in to departure times, as we would on a reserved train. I don't mind splitting up 2 and 2 on the train, but it would be nice to manage to get on the same car ... I'm so afraid the regional trains will be too crowded, and we won't be able to get on, especially considering traveling with four. If you think traveling regional is a mistake, is it too late to try to get tickets on a fast train? It says some faster trains, a reservation is optional (should I read that as 'necessary' considering the time of year?

I can't seem to find a regional train from Bolzano to Innsbruck, is there one and should I be looking on trenitalia for that?

Is it also a mistake to rely on the Bayern ticket (again, regional trains) from Salzburg to Munich? We'd be leaving in the late late afternoon on a Wednesday.
