Italy rail pass and Frecciarossa train seating options

Jump to last reply

If I purchase a one country Italy rail pass (or for that matter, a multi-country Eurail pass which includes Italy), I understand I will still need to pay an additional reservation fee to travel on the Italian high speed Frecciarossa trains. But when I look at the options for this train (e.g. from Florence to Naples), there are six different seating options to choose from (as opposed to the Frecciargento which simply offers the typical first class and second class options):
1) STANDARD
2) PREMIUM
3) BUSINESS AREA SILENZIO
4) BUSINESS
5) BUSINESS SALOTTINO
6) EXECUTIVE

If I have a second class pass, it appears I can only travel in the STANDARD seating.

But if I have a first class pass, which seating will I be able to travel in once I pay the additional 10 euro fee to reserve the seat on a specific train? Will I be able to travel in BUSINESS or EXECUTIVE with my first class rail pass by only paying the additional 10 euro seat reservation fee?

Thanks.
