Planning train travel in Italy

Jump to last reply

I have my hotels now booked for an Italy trip to Rome late Sept to early-mid Oct and I was wondering how the train system worked in Italy.

Like does it take a long time to get to each station and do I need to get there early before departure like airplanes?

We will be flying into Rome and leaving from Rome.

Once we land in Rome we go immediately to Sorrento and then after 4 nights we head to Florence and then another 4 nights we hit Venice and then 3 nights later we finish up in Rome.

Should I build in lead time? Any preference in morning or night travel that will optimize my time in each area? Which trains to book in advance and how long is each leg? Do trains differ in speed or anything?
