Trains in Italy for family of 5

Jump to last reply

My family is going to visit my sister who is studying abroad in Florence next month for almost two weeks. The five of us are going to take the train to Cinque Terre then to Venice and back to Florence. Then my sister returns to classes and the four of us will take the train to Rome for a few days and back to Florence.

Are we best off getting a Eurail pass for all this travel? Do we still need to make reservations on the trains? Would it make more sense to just get the pass for 4 of us and pay separately for my sister?

Can an Italian rail pass be used on the train between all the villages in Cinque Terre? Or can only the Cinque Terre trian card do that?

Will we need to make reservations for any of this train travel? I found a train itinerary that can get us from La Spezia to Venezia in just about 4 hours (via Pisa and Firenze). Since that's pretty short compared to most routes, do these trains get booked quicker?

I've visited Venice, Florence, and Cinque Terre before, a couple years ago. But my memory is rusty on the train details, and I did not have a Eurail pass.

Grazie!
