Ira help again!!!!

Ira, the tickets are refundable. There is a 15% penalty but my main concern is if I purchase the tickets with Trenitalia, do they have seat reservations or are the routes that I am taking just come first, get what you get? I will be willing to send my tickets back to Rail Europe and purchase them with Trenitalia if I thought I was accomplishing anything such as securing a seat on a train at a particular time, on a specific day and am assured I have a seat. Are there trains through Trenitralia that you can reserve seats? Thanks for all your help. If all I will accomplish is to diminish feeling "taken", then going to another rail agency may not accomplish anything. What does your experience tell you?

When trying to contact an individual Fodorite - it is usually best to post to a current existing thread where he is participating.

BUT - you are asking question a lot of other folks would know the answers to. W/ your "Ira help again!!!!" title, almost none of them will see your post.

I'd just try again w/ a title that actually says what you need to know . . . .

Instead of starting a new thread, why don't you post this as a continuation of your original thread- that way your question makes a lot more sense.

And Janis is right- there are lots of people here who might be able to help you. You limit yourself when you address a question to just one person.

Hi K,

Refer back to your original post (click on your name to find it).

I suggest taking the bus from Rome Tiburtina station to Siena. You won't have to lug your luggage, and the bus stops in town.

If you want to go by train, you can take an IC+. Seats are reserved on that train.

You will have to change to an R train, which does not have reserved seating.

The same thing is true for Florence to SML. You can reserve on the IC+, but not the R train.

Anyway, you will save money.

You have to register at Trenitalia. This can be a slow process.

After you get your PIN, you can buy your tickets.

You will get an eml confirmation.

Bring that and the same credit card to any train station or authorized travel agent in Italy to get your tickets.

Enjoy your visit.

For Florence to SML
