Train Travel in Italy - Transferring in Stations

Jump to last reply

A group of 4 will be traveling fairly extensively this summer. I have reviewed all of the helpful information on RoninRome's website. In checking the schedules, there are a number of trips where we will be changing trains. Trenitalia allows ~30 or more minutes to make the transfer. My concern is that if we were to enter the station 5 or 10 minutes late, it compresses our time to get luggage and oriented to the station before we can find the platform that our train leaves from. What is the best approach to navigate in the various train stations? Do we have to go inside the terminal to find our next train OR should we stay near where the train enters and ask for help? Are the conductors helpful in terms of guiding us to where our next train is departing from?

We have all traveled a bit but have not used the train much and this will be our first visit to Italy. Also, we plan to travel in first so will be making reservations in advance.

Thanks for any help ...
